B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU-FM, 90.5/ SAT., 8 AUG. 2009

The beloved and great Willy DeVille, seated with his first wife, Toots, at CBGB's in the mid-1970's. DeVille sadly passed away a few days ago in NY. While in high school, the Boy Wonder bought a Mink DeVille 45 single, "Mixed Up, Shook Up Girl" b/w "Spanish Stroll" and was promptly blown away. If Springsteen was "The Boss" of Ashbury Park, NJ, then Willy DeVille was "The Prince" of Alphabet City, NYC (Lower East Side). Hoist a glass for the late LES crooner. You'll be missed. Check out the latest NY Times obit piece on Mr. DeVille.
