Fanatics! Henry Rollins' KCRW Show Tonight: R.I.P. Mike Starr, White Suns Album, Raks Raks Raks
KCRW BROADCAST #105 for Saturday, March 12.
Fanatics! Reporting to you from Los Angeles. Still walking off the jet lag and everything's late but hopefully you will have a chance to see these notes before the show.
We open tonight's show with an AIC track in respect of the band's old bass player, Mike Starr, who died last week.
Tonight's show came together very quickly. One track took me to another and so on. Now and then, it goes very quickly. Something in one song makes me think of another and off I go.
I am glad we got another track from Raks Raks Raks on the show. It's been awhile since we've tapped that one. Cool record but I was hoping it was going to be more far out.
Weasel Walter, a true maniac and friend of the show, sent in the White Suns album weeks ago and we finally get to it tonight.
I picked up some goodies in Australia and we will get to them in the weeks upcoming.
Next week's show is all done and it's one of the coolest concept shows we have ever put together, so I hope you get a chance to check it out. The show will be the topic of next week's piece, already handed in as well.
I can't wait to go live on the air with all y'all. Rock the nation and STAY FANATIC!!! --Henry
