Radio Fragments - Sore Throat and All

Nothing sucks worse than being sick during the summer, unless you're like my wife and sick after surgery in the summer. So this show is for her, hoping she's feeling a little better tomorrow.

Oh, one thing worth calling out. I play a great single this week by an Austin band from the 90s called The Hormones, the song is Cartographer of Love. The name alone deserves special mention, but even better is that one of the old band members has an awesome music blog. Check it out. http://timnapalmblog.blogspot.com/

Radio Fragments -- Post-Surgical Radio

Wow it's nice to be back. Sorry for the extended absence, my wife had surgery and I was just to preoccupied and wiped out to do the show. But that means I'm back with a backlog of great music. And a ton of it is vinyl, I think I set a record this week with about 75% of the show being vinyl sourced.

I've got a guy named Disco Tex, some great electronic music from around the world, a 20 minute funk groove by War, Vangelis when he still had a last name, and Canned Heat from an album that lied in pretty much every way it could, but the truth is always in the music...
