Burn, baby, burn….blues inferno?!?!

Paul Webster Feinstein
Yeah, he looks guilty.

I am very passionate about my music, as anyone who knows me can attest. But it turns out that Paul Webster Feinstein is even more passionate. Mr. Feinstein, unhappy with some changes made to his Internet radio show, opted to show his displeasure by setting the station on fire.  Yikes!  This guy’s show may have been all about the blues, but this move is totally rock ‘n’ roll.

Oh, and not to go off on a rant, but here’s a big shout out to the Associated Press for their mad fact-checking skillz.  Their article makes a point of stating that this guy is a jazz fan and he had a jazz show.  But a quick look at some of his past playlists shows it to be mostly blues-oriented.  The show’s tagline even asks, “Do you bleed the blues?”  Cripes, great job AP.

  • They only call blues jazz because “Urban” is already taken, and any other term for lumping all of that stuff that white kids don’t listen to would lead to lawsuits.

    I’m not at all surprised that it was a local nonprofit that got torched. The main reason I don’t give money to WBAI is the petty and vindictive fighting that goes on in the station board.

  • It bugs me to no end that people think nothing of lumping blues and jazz together. Why? Simply because they are both not rock? Hell, I sort my blues with my rock because I don’t have enough of the former to warrant it’s own section – I would never do that with my jazz.

    Oh, and that guy is nuts. It was a freakin’ volunteer, community station!
