Morning Becomes Eclectic‘s interview with Sly Stone–which aired yesterday, and was apparently recorded a few days ahead so the show’s producers would ensure that it made it to broadcast–is streaming from KCRW’s site right now; his description of what happened when he first heard Sam Cooke is worth the bandwidth. (“Towards the end of the song, people starting running down the aisle and I didn’t know what was going on,” he said. “I didn’t know what was going on. I didn’t know they were just happy. So, I turned around and ran, and I’ve been running ever since.”) [KCRW]

  1. Ah! I was wondering how they were so confident that he would show. And here I was impressed because I thought it was live. Still, it was a great interview, and it was heartening to hear Sly sounding so…coherent.
