If you want to run the first half hour, it features just his work with Springsteen, and stands alone.  Ingles does a brief intro and outro but the half-hour is a well crafted mix of Clemons' best solos.

Great tribute to Clarence Clemons

I concur with the above comment. Mr. Ingles has put together a nice tribute to saxophonist Clarence Clemons. My station, WESM 91.3 FM in Princess Anne, Maryland, aired the 58-minute "Best of Clarence Clemons" on Saturday, June 25, 2011, and are quite pleased with the program. It had special relevance for our station, as Mr. Clemons attended the University that holds our station license. Thanks again Paul for making this timely tribute available!

Leave it to Paul to curate the best work of a musical legend - and create the pacing, and punch that would keep listeners listening for a half hour.
