Celebrating The Last Waltz (feat. Hrishikesh Hirway)

The night before Thanksgiving, Hanif has a special invented tradition: every year, he makes a batch of cupcakes and watches The Last Waltz—and every year, he finds new things to love about the film. Directed by Martin Scorsese, The Last Waltz is a 1978 concert film documenting the final performance of The Band. To Hanif, the movie is not just a collection of great performances, but a study in exquisite tenderness, and how to say goodbye. Hrishikesh Hirway joins Hanif to discuss the film in this special episode recorded live at On Air Fest LA Annex 2022. / Music In This Week's Episode: / Sip the Wine - Rick Danko Don’t Do It - The Band My Love - Rick Danko and Richard Manuel Down South in New Orleans - The Band, Bobby Charles False Hearted Lover Blues - Levon Helm Tura Lura Lural (That’s an Irish Lullaby) - The Band, Van Morrison All Our Past Times - Rick Danko Showdown at Big Sky - Robbie Robertson
