A 40th birthday for a great album, keyboard pioneers, and fresh new music with a classic connection; this week on The Depths

It's time for another expansive journey through the world of deep classic rock, and early progressive FM rock radio on The Depths.

The Kinks album, "Low Budget" turned 40 this week, and we will pay tribute to it with some background history, and a couple extended mixes that didn't make the original album.

We'll also spend a little time with two brilliant pioneers of early synthesizers: Annette Peacock and Robert Mason.

We'll even play a short clip of the progressive FM station in Philadelphia that used Robert Mason's music as a bed for several years.

Fallen musical heroes, James Taylor covers, and fresh music from classic artists -- all this week on The Depths.

Over the past several weeks, the classic rock world has lost four important figures. On this week's journey through The Depths, you will hear from all of them: rare live recordings from Dr. John and Leon Redbone, as well as important tracks from Gary Duncan of Quicksilver Messenger Service, and Roky Erickson from the 13th Floor Elevators. You'll even hear a brilliant spoken word piece from Ken Nordine, who we lost earlier this year.
