RADIO BROADCAST #427
Fanatic! Another great show lined up for you. As I’m writing this, I am listening to the Boris/Merzbow collab album Rock Dream. Such a great record. They do a lot of work together. Rarely are these sets less than three LPs, so you have to commit! Worth it every time.
What we have assembled here is what you will hopefully find to be two worthwhile hours of listening. I have listened to the final order twice now and it’s still working for me.
I had a chance to listen to Mikey Young’s new album. It was untitled when it was sent to me. I just went to the Midheaven site and there it was, ready for a June 16 release. It’s called Your Move Vol. 1 and it is fantastic. Since there’s a release date, I can put a track into one of our upcoming shows. Midheaven.com is your friend.
There are some great albums coming out in the next few months and we will do our best to stay with it and keep you kept up.
Next week’s show is already in mid-construction. I am working on our June shows a couple of hours a night.
Thanks for listening and until next week, get your listening going and STAY FANATIC!!!
