Tonight's Thursday Night Feature will highlight Tim Duffy, founder of the Music Maker Relief Foundation. Host Tim Carless will be talking with Duffy about the foundation's history and evolution, as well as playing music from its archives. Tune in 9pm to midnight to learn about this phenomenal organization and the musicians it champions and sustains, artists whose vast contributions to Southern cultural heritage have so often been undercompensated or underfunded, but who continue to provide us with a rich tapestry of sound and song. www.wxyc.org, 89.3 locally on your FM dial.

You might remember Pete Rock's 1992 hit T.R.O.Y. (http://bit.ly/aSsird if you don't). Rock's insanely catchy sax sample came from Tom Scott's cover of Jefferson Airplane's Today, off seminal album Surrealistic Pillow. The JF cut: http://bit.ly/9riDDc. Tom's cover below.
