The Sweet Baby Lou & The Reverends of Funk, Sweet Baby Lou Memorial Funeral & Benefit Concert Radio Bonanza (Complete 6 Hour Show)

It has been over a month since Sweet Baby Lou Rodham Whittaker Jr. passed away, casting a dark shadow on all that is good and funky in this world. After his sudden and violent death, Lou left Pete Rizzo & Charlie Felder (the long-time co-hosts of the program and inaugural Reverends of Funk) as the heirs to his estate, passing on not only his collection of lint balls but also a multimillion dollar debt along with it. Thus it was order by the courts that The Reverends of Funk conduct a “benefit concert / good time medicine hour” in Lou’s honor. All this was devised in an effort to raise enough money to keep the beloved WMUA show on the airwaves and co-hosts Pete Rizzo and Charlie Felder from being executed.

With the help of some local artists (The Telephone Company, Andy Suhre, The Frills, Time & Place, Grex, Solo Sexx, Tom Wraight, Jon Shaver, Furious Replication, Harkness, and Midnight Blue — among others), what follows is the recorded record of what will become known as the “Sweet Baby Lou Memorial Funeral & Benefit Concert.” The six hour event which aired on May 5th 2010 from 12-6am can be heard below. For any tips on Lou’s murderer, who remains at large, please contact us.

Peace. Love. Funk.
