"The All-Star Rent Party": THE WEEKEND MIX

This was given to me in 1994 or 1995. (Or maybe 1993 or 1997) I had forgotten about it until yesterday.

Broadcast on Vin Scelsa's show sometime in 1992 or 1993, here was an old -fashioned rent party with a twist, with a killer band, taking requests for $125 per song, but with all proceeds going to World Hunger.

The Band:
Marshall Crenshaw
Jules Shear
Don Dixon
Jimmy Vivino
Garry Tallent
Danny Federici
Clarence Clemons
Max Weinberg

Special Guests
Joey Ramone
Pete Fornatele
Catherine Russell
Joyce Bowden

The Set List:

Sunshine Superman
Don't Let Me Down
Somewhere Over The Rainbow
Stray Cat Blues
Go Your Own Way
The Lion Sleeps Tonight
Draft Dodger Rag
Splish Splash
Younger Girl
Piece Of My Heart
Route 66
Dear Prudence
Rock Around The Clock
Bright Lights, Big City
I Fought The Law
And I Love Her
Tried Of Waiting For You
Whole Lotta Love/Little Red Rooster
I Wanna Be Sedated
Soul Seranade

This is a very loose affair, but I think you'll be happy to have heard it.

Thanks!! Great band and show. I think I had this or another "Rent Party" on cassette years ago. Nice to have it digitally. Might have been one of Vin's X-mas shows now that I think of it. He had many over the years. Wish he was still on the radio!
