The night I talked with Max Roach in 1990 / Coffeeshop Conversations @ Artichoke Music #371

By TOM D'ANTONI // Drummer, percussionist, composer, icon Max Roach from March 1, 1990, on my American Radio Network show. I need say no more.

This is a special edition of OMN’s Coffeeshop Conversations @ Artichoke Music.

At the last moment three separate guests had to cancel. A bad thing, perhaps. But perhaps not because I turned to an old box of audio cassettes, the remnants of some of my earlier years in radio, and I ran across a tape of a conversation I had with the great drummer, percussionist, composer and icon…Max Roach.

I had forgotten that he was a guest on a show I did on what was then called the American Radio Network one Saturday night, March 1, 1990. Max was on the phone and I was in the studio in Baltimore Maryland. That is this week’s podcast.

Max Roach!

I am leaving the commercials, beeps boops, interruptions and everything else in. Just as it originally aired.
