Ode To Gravity:
The Music of Kermit Lynch

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 62 min
Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA

Charles Amirkhanian interviews Berkeley songwriter and wine connoisseur, Kermit Lynch, one of the country’s most highly respected importers of French wine. In a previous life, following his childhood in San Luis Obispo, and his unsuccessful foray into the treacherous world of academia at Fresno State University, Kermit moved to Berkeley, California, attended San Francisco State University, and was a founding member of a band called The Roaches (a name inspired perhaps by their better known competitors, The Beatles). This program reveals to the world the original song compositions of Kermit Lynch written between 1966 and 1971, as recorded in 1987 during a studio session in San Francisco. Among the songs is “Live It Up”, inspired by and dedicated to Jerry Lee Lewis. Lynch also discusses his book, “Adventures on the Wine Route: A Winebuyer’s Tour of France”. (from KPFA Folio)
