Fanatic! Happy August to you. Over the years, August has become my second favorite month, next to October.

What we have here for you, Fanatic, is what looks to be a great two hours of warm weather listening. I thought it was the right thing to do, putting both sides of the great Hendrix single on our show. Both songs are so great.

A few nights ago, I saw Ty Segall play at the Griffin. Wand was his band. Is that cool, or what? It was strong, too. I have never seen that guy turn in a bad show or put in a bad album.

I have been working on all the August shows at once, trying to create a five-Sunday sweeping epic! Trying to put all these together along with listening to all the new stuff coming in, I have had my work cut out for me, but how bad is that, really?

I hope you enjoy this great batch of tunes and please tune in next week if you can.

Thanks for listening and STAY FANATIC!!!
