KCRW Broadcast #159 for Saturday, April 7, 2012
Fanatics! I must say, I don't have much of a clue as to what songs Ian has chosen to bring with him. As you know, tonight, we are live with Ian MacKaye, who happens to be in town. I have been talking with the man over the last few nights and what the plan seems to be is that we are going to bring a lot of music and see what happens. Should be a great time, whatever happens.
Just a little heads up on some of the goodness coming your way:
In two weeks, we will unleash KCRW #160, 04-21-12, on you. It's Iggy's birthday, so the whole night will be Stoogesonic.
A week after that, KCRW #161, 04-28-12, will be let loose on you. In the second hour, we will feature a great new album weeks before it's coming out — by a J Mascis side project called Heavy Blanket. It's six blazing instrumentals, featuring J Mascis on guitar. The album won't be out until May, I believe but we get to hear it first! It's really great. I worked it out with the label and they're all cool with us getting first crack at it.
I think you will like the upcoming shows. We are going to get into some cool jams and take the whole thing to some new places.
Make sure to tune in this Saturday for myself, Ian, Engineer X and the Young Will Bentley as we will be live at 8 pm on Tha K, 89.9 FM KCRW. Listen in and STAY FANATIC!!! –Henry
