Radio Fragments - Busy Week!

It's a crazy week, lots going on at work, family visiting from out of town, and allergies are messing me up. Good thing I can escape to the studio for a couple uninterupted hours of musical fun!

Lots of great stuff this week. Mighty Groundhogs, Richard Feynman chanting and beating on drums, robots in love... what more do you want from a radio show?

Radio Fragments - 4/20. Just Sayin'.

No, the show doesn't have anything to do with the date, but people wouldn't stop talking about it today, so I'm acknowledging that here. :)

I continue exploring more vinyl this week, with a blend of super obscure 7" singles -- including "Bellevue, WA" (from whence I broadcast) by Cat Food from 1993 -- some crazy surf rock from France, someone considering a move to Memphis, Conan O'Brien eating Polk Salad, and a new release of Black Angels B-sides...and that's just the vinyl. Tune in and find out what I brought on CD!

Radio Fragments - Long Play Extravaganza #4

It's about that time again! I haven't done one since last September, but I'm back with another Long Play Extravaganza! 2 hours, 6 songs. Just 6, that's it.

4 of them are pieces that occupy an entire side of a vinyl LP, and 5 of them are live performances...and they're all uniformly wonderful. We've got 'the greatest piece of live rock ever committed to vinyl', Pink Floyd kicking it live and spacy, The Dears from Canada with 15 minutes of thrashing and 5 minutes of crooning, a crazy german electronic musician touring Poland, Jon Anderson from Yes and Vangelis with the beautiful 22 minute 'Horizon', and a piece from maybe the best jazz record ever.

How's that for a show?
