Brian Goodman of the Knyghts of Fuzz explores the multi-lingual power of rock & roll to transcend language barriers when he invades Jimmy Barrett’s long-running radio show “Kaleidoscope” on WVCR-FM at 6pm on Saturday.

Goodman and Barrett will be spinning two hours of garage-rockin’ ’60s music – sung in foreign languages. You can listen at 88.3 FM on your radio, or right here on your computer.

It’s been a good week for Mr. Goodman, who pulled a double-header last Friday evening. He was playing the Happy Hour show with his band the Knyghts of Fuzz at Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany, when singer-songwriter Peter Case asked him to play drums with him for his late-night show. (Review with photos here.)

As Brian said, “I never thought I’d be playing drums at this show! Crazy man crazy!”
