RADIO BROADCAST #379
Fanatic! In a small room in Antwerp, Belgium. Hopefully, my suitcase arrives soon. I have been a couple of days without in as it magically disappeared somewhere en route. They threaten to bring it shortly. That was three hours ago.
In much better news, the Alice Bag album is really great and so we will start the show with a track from it. Heavy song and Alice delivers. Great to see her recently at DragCon.
What we tried to put together here was great summer listening, no matter where you are, even in Australia where things are cooling down. We do try to think globally when we present a show to you.
I am here for a festival date Thursday on the 30th and then back to Los Angeles. This is my fifth trip to Europe this year. There is a strange familiarity to the trans Atlantic flights now. I have one more in about a month.
We would like to thank Gerhard twice for passing not only the Le Butcherettes live at the Constellation show to us, which rocks in our first hour, but also the Iggy live at the Greek show; the song "Sister Midnight" from the show features in our second hour. Sounds really great. I have seen Iggy play four times this year and if anything, his voice is better than ever. At the Greek he and the band delivered. Again, thanks, Gerhard!
I am listening to the tracks play yet one more time as my T-shirt ripens and I think we have a great show here. We have great tunes lined up for you this month, so please tune in if you can.
I am really looking forward to some new clothes.
Live well and STAY FANATIC!!!
