[Every Sunday from 8 to 10 p.m., Henry Rollins brings an exclusive mix of songs old and new to listeners at 89.9 FM, KCRW. Visit for more information and to stream his show online, or peruse the Radio Notes archives to see past playlists.]


Fanatic! If you’re checking out these notes, that means you are at least considering checking out the show. Thank you for that.

After the extremities of last week’s show, we return to a more “conventional” approach if you will. Just a bunch of great songs that hopefully provides a good soundtrack to whatever you’re doing.

Upcoming Events

I got my LP version of the Valet album Nature yesterday and rocked it last night. Fantastic piece of work.

Thee Oh Sees' Mutilator Defeated at Last on LP rocks as well. Another one of those bands that you really want to check out on vinyl whenever possible.

In our second hour, we devote our first block to a pal of mine from the D.C. scene who recently passed away. He was a cool maniac and the first six tracks of the hour are bands I know for sure he liked.

Fanatic, hopefully, we keep getting to bring you this music once a week. This week, listen to more music than you did last week and STAY FANATIC!!!
