WREK pays tribute to Dennis Palmer and The Shaking Ray Levis

dennis-palmerJoin us Sunday, March 3rd, on WREK 91.1 FM as we pay tribute to Dennis Palmer and the Shaking Ray Levis. Dennis Palmer passed away suddenly on February 15th.

Conceived by Dennis Palmer and Bob Stagner in 1986, Shaking Ray Levis has been a guiding light with their Southern Ol’ Time Avant-Garde sound and a dominant force in the Chattanooga arts scene for decades.

Improvising with a who’s who of world-renowned musicians and artists such as; Rev. Howard Finster, Borbetomagus, Derek Bailey, Eugene Chadbourne, David Greenberger, Amy Denio, Davey Willams and LaDonna Smith, the Levis were also a formidable duo who struck sparks whenever and whenever they played.

We’ll cover as many aspects of the breadth and depth of their career as time allows – including some rare live and unreleased recordings!

So join us Sunday March 3rd at 7:00PM on 91.1 FM or If you miss the live airing, you will be able to listen to the show for up to a week later via WREK’s online archive.

Update Monday March 4th: The show has aired and is now in the WREK archive!

The web link above will expire at 7pm next Sunday, March 10th.

Thanks to Andy Pierce for putting the show to together, and to Keith Lee for helping with production. And special thanks to Bob Stagner for his surprise appearance, insight on the performances, and general good words.

R.I.P. Dennis Palmer.
