Grant-Lee Phillips Guest DJ

Grant-Lee Phillips, formerly of Grant Lee Buffalo, plays Guest DJ on The Morning Mix with Cindy Howes. Before his show at Club Cafe, he shared a few of his favorite songs on WYEP. In his typical lyrical fashion, of Neil Young's "Cortez The Killer" Grant says "It's just this great blistering narrative, it's like a novel in the form of a song...". We also learn that Phillips is a fan of Richard Manuel (The Band) and his vocal stylings, "I just love all his odd piano voicing and the amount of pain and anguish in his vocals". GLP goes on to express his appreciation for The Beatles, "The album that really drew me in was probably Magical Mystery Tour. The song that drew me in was "Blue Jay Way". I very gradually realized that I was very much a George Harrison fan... I find the contradiction in his work so fascinating. He's the one that introduced the Indian and Eastern influence and yet: "Taxman"."
