Described as a "well known scenster" in L.A. from the '70's, Art Fein long had a bizzare cable-access show with top musicians.
On January 18, 1984 Art began Art Fein's Poker Party, which evolved from real poker games and ran for an amazing 1,080 shows featuring the likes of young Dwight Yokam, before he was signed to Warner Bros. Chris Issak, performing an acoustic Wicked Game just before it broke big. Screamin' Jay Hawkins. The Stray Cats, covering Mystery Train A bizzare interview with Brian Wilson. Mojo Nixon and Skid Roper, doing, well whatever it is they do. There was a set by a very young Luther and Cody Dickinson and Paul Taylor of DDT. Here's a clip of Jim jiving with Art, the late great Louisiana record man, Huey Meaux, and rock 'n roll writer/ manager extraordinaire, Joe Nick Patoski. (with thanks to Metal Filter)
