Modcast #310: The Misters Have It

You can blame this modcast on honorary producer Mary Queen of Cosmos who was the inspiration for this week's show -- as she often has been in the past as well. Anyhow she recently sent me Otis Redding's Mr. Pitiful which Redding wrote and recorded in the Stax studios in 1964and then released on his 1965 album The Great Otis Redding Sings Soul Ballads. But I digress. Ms. Mary challenged me to come up with a playlist to go with the song, and that's how we all endup here listening to some really kick ass music. Mary says a Mr. Pitiful deserves a Mrs. Fabulous, so she's provided us with an excellent cocktail recipe that you'll want to take to heart ... or liver, as the case may be.

Listen Now
