If you missed our premiere episode with Bettye LaVette, go back and find it…after you listen to my conversation with Emilio Castillo founder of Tower of Power, I mean.

Tower of Power is unique in that people absolutely LOVE them but I bet they couldn’t name the leader or the other guys who founded the band and are still playing in it fifty years later.

They are not an oldies band. Just the opposite, they have a new album coming out in a couple of months and have just released a single from it. It’s the title tune, “Step Up.”
