RADIO BROADCAST #422
Fanatic! Kind of strange not having a guest after two in a row. We are now somewhat back to “normal.”
A great show. After a few drafts, I finalized the order and listened down to both hours and I really liked it.
You will see that we have new David Bowie, from the No Plan EP. The songs are great and we will be playing all of them.
Next week, we will be starting in on some great music by FM St. Jude, otherwise known as our good pal and sonic ally, Fred. We have listened to him a lot over the years, ever since we heard Here Am I and of course Gang War. There is a limited release of some songs that almost got lost forever, appropriately titled Almost Lost. It’s great stuff and we will be rocking all those tracks in the weeks coming up. A crazy story behind the tracks that is included in packaging. Here’s your info.
Iggy Pop is awarded the Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters medal.
I hope you had a good Record Store Day. Larry at In the Red and I were relieved to see our Pure Hell release go out into the world. Hopefully, they all found good homes. I am so happy about the way the record turned out. We are trying to come up with something as cool for next year.
