Fanatics! Thanks for coming to this page and checking out what we have for you this Sunday.

As I write this, I am in New York City. I will be here all week and then off to other parts of America, working on the show 10 Things You Don't Know About.

Engineer X and I have been working hard on these shows for many weeks. It was quite an undertaking to get them all prepared and put together but we did it.

Tonight, we have attempted to do one of our favorite things, the great C-90 mix tape.
I looked up KEG, the Lone Ranger of Rock, to see what he was up to but all the site information I could find was a couple of years old. I hope he has not stopped. I saw him once a few years ago and he was really cool.

I also looked up Thor, who I have not heard from in awhile. Looks like he's still keeping it happening. I met him years ago. I was told that he was going to come to a show of mine and actually brought all my Thor records for him to sign, which he did.

I think I mentioned on last week's show or thereabouts, that we would be getting into some more Les Rallizes Denudes. Their music is not all that easy to get a hold of and sometimes the cost is prohibitive as seemingly, all the records are bootlegs. Takashi Mizutani is a monster guitar player. If you check out some of the re-issued titles on Phoenix, you will make out well. That's a cool and daring label. All those records are not easy sells.

I have become such a fan of Clarinette, also known as Dan Vallor. The track we have of his tonight is exactly why I have all of his records.

The Seluah track, pretty cool, right?

Over the last several months, I have been able to secure a lot of the HTRK records and have been through all of them once. If I get more time coming later in the summer, I will go back through all of them again. My current schedule has me all over the place, so I have to give a lot of records only one spin and it often takes me a long time to go back again. I take notes while I listen, so I can remember what tracks stand out and what to put in our show.

Tonight, we play the Generation X song for Dave Byers of the Enzymes. He really liked that song.

There is a whole new slew of My Cat Is An Alien and related releases. They are damn good, too. I am such a fan. Anyway, here is the Opalio's site address.

I hope you enjoy the show, whenever you're listening and wherever you're listening from.

Enjoy yourself and STAY FANATIC!!!
