RADIO BROADCAST #426
Fanatic! Great to be back with you.
I hope you are getting enough listening in. I am keeping my numbers up with at least five albums played a day. When in doubt, putting a record on always seems to work for me.
Below, you will see that we have that new Guerilla Toss track starting off our show. In case you want to know more, here's that GT info one more time.
Due to travel, I missed two shows I would have gone to. Those two groups start our second hour. Omar Souleyman and Kid Congo — if at all possible, never miss the chance to see them play.
Check out Mr. Souleyman's schedule. The man gets around!
Last night, I rocked the Reliquary for a Dreamed of World by 11Paranoias and a white vinyl pressing of the Boris/Merzbow Sun Baked Snow Cave albums.
Oh yeah, didn't want to forget, our Thee Oh Sees track is from the album Drop, which just got a new color variant, “Versace Vomit,” in case you're interested. Looks cool, sounds great.
It should not surprise you that we are already at work putting together next week's show.
