Tom Schnabel dives right into the deep end of the YouTube pool, selecting his picks for KCRW’s long format YouTube experiment called The Cue. Dig in!

The episode features Tom Schnabel as your guide through 8 of his favorite YouTube videos, and starts right off with Herbie Hancock showing Q around on new Fairlight synthesizer in 1984. It includes highlights from great artists that have overcome severe disabilities to make beautiful music, like Michel Petrucciani who was born with glass bones disease and stood only 3′ tall at adulthood. There are also a reflection on Nina Siomone’s loneliness and a celebration of her love for classical music.
