RADIO BROADCAST #445

Fanatic! Below you will see the tracks we have lined up for you. It's another dose of great October listening.

I think I might have told you of my great excitement at the release of the new David Bowie box set, A New Career in a New Town 1977-1982. Both LP and CD versions are full of problems and poor mastering. Until they straighten them out, if they ever do, I would strongly recommend you stay well away from this release. If you go on Amazon.com, you can read a lot of reviews that are spot on. It will be interesting to see if the release is recalled and fixes made. That will take months, if they even bother. You would think that if Visconti was involved, everything would be spec. Ugh.

Enough of my frustrations. We have a great show here and next week's is all ready to go. I hope you're getting a lot of good listening in. I am trying to digest at least five albums a day. I only got to three yesterday but I'll even up in the next few hours. I've been tied to two different work areas and three computers all day. I'm working on an upcoming radio show on one, editing Fanatic Vol. 4 on another and scanning images for said book in yet another. It's a lot of running around but I'm getting it done. Back to it!

Listen to a lot of music and STAY FANATIC!!!
