RADIO BROADCAST #408
Fanatic! We are starting on a long journey that will be a lot of things; boring will probably not be one of them. Music now more than ever.
We have another great show for you this evening. Very excited about what is to be released this year. I have heard at least two records that I am not at liberty to talk about but will be out soon, which we will be featuring on the show as soon as we have been given the clearance.
Get ready for a great Record Store Day single that Larry from In the Red and I have put together. SO COOL.
There is a band I found out about last year called Red Red Krovvy. They are Australian and really good. They sent their new album via Julia Wilson over at Rice Is Nice Records, with permission to start playing it. So, in hour 2, we do.
If you happen to read these notes before Sunday, I am yet again subbing for Iggy on his BBC Radio 6 show this Friday. I think it will be daytime in USA when it goes out. You can find the show notes via my site or on my company’s Facebook page. Lisa posted them today.
Earlier today, I opened a box of records I bought as a lot sale from a vendor in Morocco. Can’t wait to hear this stuff. I don’t know a single person on any of the records but they looked too interesting not to check out. I’ll let you know how I go.
As I write this, I am in the back of a car, returning from NAMM, where I just spoke to people who work at Shure Microphone. I have been off tour less than 48 hours. I am sure this won’t surprise you but this weekend, damn, am I going to listen to a lot of music. I have been jamming the tunes since I walked in on Monday. Stoked for the weekend!!!
2017: You, me, Engineer X, Engineer Am-Rock and a whole lot of music. I do believe we will get through.
Go analog and STAY FANATIC!!!
