RADIO BROADCAST #338
Fanatic! For me, it doesn’t get much better than this. I am sitting at the kitchen table at Ian MacKaye’s parents' house. I have been visiting this house since I was 12. I am back in the neighborhood. Next to me, Ian is talking to his father Bill.
The weather is warmer than I would like but at least it’s dry. I am very happy to be here. I was just in Chicago for Riot Fest and Hartford, Conn., for two benefit shows at the Twain Museum.
I arrived here this morning and spent the day at Dischord. Ian pulled out an early Cramps set list he had just come across.
I played him some of the Chilean stuff we have been digging lately and he was into it.
If you look down, Fanatic, you will see that we have yet again put together another great night of listening.
I am low on time, so I am going to leave you with the tracks and hope you enjoy every second of it.
Stay loose and STAY FANATIC!!!
