RADIO BROADCAST #423
Fanatic! We have a great show for you here.
Hopefully, you will find this to be perfect warm-weather listening. I have listened top to bottom twice and it’s working for me.
Next week, we will have a song by a new project Mike Patton has called Dead Cross. We have been cut loose on one song. It has some language issues, as far as FCC rules, so Engineer X had to remove parts of it. So, if “Grave Slave” sounds like part song/part sashimi, that’s why. He just sent it to me. I’m almost afraid to listen to it but I would rather play the hacked-up version than not play it for you at all. I think we are in a post-FCC world, with podcasts and other means of getting music. Terrestrial radio is somewhat limited, but we carry on nonetheless.
I am just now getting to my Record Store Day releases. I am finishing off The Stooges' Heavy Liquid 2-LP set. It’s mostly stuff you have heard before, but there are a couple of things that I am not aware of turning up on other releases. So many of these tracks have been flogged so many times, I don’t see the point, but I guess there’s always someone like me who will keep showing up.
I hope you got a chance to check out the RSD record that Larry Hardy of In the Red Records and I put out, the Pure Hell 1975 acetate. Both tracks unreleased, only one copy of the source. Now, THAT’S a Record Store Day release, Fanatic. I think there are some left at Midheaven.
