RADIO BROADCAST #433
Fanatic! A great show lined up! Obviously, I can't know where you're listening to this show from but where I am, here in Los Angeles, summer's furnace is on full. When it's 80-plus degrees at night, you know the next day is going to be brutal. While I'm not interested in baking in the sun, I don't mind hot rooms at night as long as there's music. Our summer programming has been forged in these elevated temperatures and will hopefully provide a good soundtrack. We're making a mixtape here! That's what it's all about.
Let's see, the new Pontiak album is great, so I thought we would start the show with a track from it. The new Alan Vega album, IT, is out and so we can finally start playing tracks. I am happy we can get this one going. Alan, as you know, is no longer with us but his music will always be around, and IT is a great piece of work.
I don't want to forget this. Charles Moothart, whom we listen to on the show all the time, has a show coming up at Zebulon on Monday, July 17. I've seen Mr. Moothart play a couple of times, and he's not to be missed. The venue is located at 2478 Fletcher Drive, Los Angeles, 90039. If you were listening last week, you remember that we finished the show with a track from his Dichotomy Desaturated album. Great record.
Next week's show is all finished and ready to go.
I hope you dig the show and as always, thanks for listening, and STAY FANATIC!!!
