171 Malcolm Cecil

A new show, prompted by the recent death of Malcolm Cecil, bass, keyboard and electronic wizard.  We played his early jazz bass stuff in the preshow, and the plethora of artists he’d produced and engineered in the main show, along with electronic music from the Tonto’s Exapandind Heand Band, the very seventies name for he and Bob Margouleff playing the TONTO synthesiser.
