Al Kooper Sitting in on Lost & Found on May 22nd

Al Kooper will be sitting in for the two hours and spinning music of his own choosing, while being interrogated about his amazing career in music, on May 22nd's (Monday) Lost & Found with host Bob Dubrow.

Kooper played the signature organ riff in Bob Dylan's milestone song "Like a Rolling Stone." He was in the Blues Project, the first (and best!) incarnation of Blood, Sweat & Tears, put out music with Mike Bloomfield and Shuggie Otis, and released solo albums in the early '70s. He discovered and produced three Lynyrd Skynyrd albums (the ones with their massive hits..."Free Bird"anyone?). He played on and arranged three tracks on George Harrison's Somewhere in England album, performing with the remaining Beatles, Harrison, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr on the No. 1 single "All Those Years Ago." In an issue devoted to The 500 Greatest Recordings of All Time, Rolling Stone magazine included 12 albums with serious participation by Al.

And he's continued to rock the house onto the present day. Tune in to get a taste of Al Kooper's world on May 22nd! Which ain't a bad birthday present for the host either...
