XM Radio Pays Tribute to Cleveland

Posted By on Fri, Apr 11, 2008 at 9:33 AM

What do Nine Inch Nails and Frank Yankovic have in common?
Cleveland gets its props on XM Radio’s Marty Stuart's American Odyssey on April 18. The country-music traditionalist – who’s played with everyone from bluegrass picker Lester Flatt to the legendary Johnny Cash – will spotlight our city during his weekly, hour-long program ... Through interviews and songs, Stuart will chronicle the city’s musical history, touching on such disparate artists as jazzman Jimmy Scott, R&B singer Wynona Carr, punks the Dead Boys, avant-garage noisemakers Pere Ubu, and the only act to make some money, Nine Inch Nails. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will also get a shout-out (curator Howard Kramer will guest, as will Little Richard, for some reason). Stuart (who has one of the most awesome ’dos in the biz) will also spin cuts by the James Gang (“Walk Away”), Frank Yankovic (“Have a Nice Weekend in Cleveland Polka”), Tracy Chapman (“Give Me One Reason”), and, um, Roger Martin (“The Tribe Is Alive”). The show airs at 8 a.m. on Friday on XM’s America channel, XM 10. -- Michael Gallucci “Sonic Reducer” by the Dead Boys:
