Rainbow Cafe, 4/29/1973: David Ossman interviews Ward Kimball


From the collection of David Ossman, here's an awesome lost interview with Ward Kimball, hosted by Ossman on his Rainbow Cafe show on KCSB-FM Santa Barbara, broadcast on 4/29/1973. It's a free-ranging interview with some great details about Ward's friendship with Robert Crumb and their seldom-heard musical collaborations! The interview segments are interspersed with a DJ set comprised of classic Disney tunes and really scarce vinyl. Don't miss the rare Decca 78 "In the Valley of the Moon", Ward's self-professed favorite record of all time.
