KCRW BROADCAST #1248 for Saturday, August 20
Fanatics! Beaming in from Edinburgh, Scotland. The weather is great and the streets are full of people. It is time for the annual Edinburgh Festival. You might remember that I wrote you from here last year. This year, I am only here for two shows. Next year, hopefully, I will be here for a couple of weeks.
We start our show this week with some great music from Scotland and go from there. It's designed to be great end of summer listening. It's not all that challenging, which is to say that most of tonight's tracks are by many of our familiar friends. Now and then, I think it's good to keep things close.
Next week, we have a bit of a concept set. It will be our yearly Punk Rock jam out, a great night of listening we have ready for you. The show is in the can, Engineer X and I put it all together several days ago, as I will be at the Leeds Festival on that night.
Thanks for all the letters about last week's pledge drive show. We put a lot of work into that one, so we're glad you dug it. If you want to hear some of the prepared — or in the case of the first track, somewhat unprepared — tracks, you can go here.
Also, my new book Occupants is available for pre-sale here.
Until we get together again next week, hang in there and STAY FANATIC!!! –Henry
