Diva / Mensch pair for Jan 5, 2022

Happy New Year, everyone. I hope 2022 is full of wonderful things for all of us.

I had a fun time with the Beatles tribute at the end of last year. I've asked my brother Howard to collaborate with me on a similar theme, using song pairs by different groups. Howard has a vast knowledge of music and was Program Director at KUSF in San Francisco, so his choices will be insightful.

I'll give the mic to Howard:

"Should I start with Sly? Not much says 70s like the Family Stone, eh? Remember when Uncle Johnny gave our cousin Heidi Sly's Greatest Hits and her parents made her return it? Yikes.

"He was a genius, such a sad fall into addiction and insanity. I interviewed his biographer at KUSF many years ago and he told me the only place Sly would consent to be interviewed was in his 1957 Chevy he had parked in his backyard in Marin.

"Kinda funny, kinda heartbreaking."

Diva: "Stand"

Mensch: "Running Away"
