Dave Mason, founder member of the legendary psychedelic/prog rockers Traffic, is featured in a one hour radio special on Sunday 27 November 2016.
Dave chats to the award-winning Pete Feenstra in his weekly Feature show on Get Ready to ROCK! Radio, ahead of rare UK tour dates in February/March 2017.
Mason was an original member of Traffic whom he co-founded in 1967 and although appearing on several albums left the band several times until they finally split in 1975.
In the 1970s he pursued a solo career and worked with a variety of musicians including Delaney and Bonnie, Eric Clapton, George Harrison and Family (whose debut album he produced). Later he duetted with Michael Jackson (in 1980) and was a member of Fleetwood Mac for a brief period in the 1990s. In 2004 he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame.
Mason brings his Traffic Jam World Tour to the UK in February 2017, featuring hits and deep cuts from iconic Traffic albums, stories and anecdotes, plus new material and a selection of classic solo music.
Since launching in 2014, Mason’s Traffic Jam show has been garnering critical praise – in the U.S, the National Rock Review commented how “the music performed was timeless and resonates deeply”.
