January 25, 2008 Show

This week we did our monthly theme hour. On the last Friday of the month, we pick a theme and adhere to it during the second hour of the show. This month's theme: State Your Full Name, Please. All song titles had to have a full name in the title, first and last. Good times.

January 18, 2008 Show

Launched a new segment for the show today: This Week in Punk Rock History. And of course, the mic cut out while I was in the middle of it. I was able to make a recovery, but so much for the new segment. Also some new Marah, in honor of them canceling their tour, which was supposed to kick off on Friday in Providence.

January 11, 2008 Show

Felt like a really good show. New and old music from Marah, in anticipation of their tour which kicks off in Providence next week. Also a set of songs inspired by and including Jack Kerouac. Have a listen.

(Had some technical difficulties with the podcast. It's in two parts, which is a good thing. But two songs got cut off in the process, not to mention some of my scintillating banter. Not good. I've made those songs available below.)

January 4, 2008 Show

Chaotic show this week, at least behind the scenes. Though I don't think it comes through much on the broadcast, which is a good thing. New single from Bob Mould. Old single from Grant Hart. And much more. Podcast and playlist below. Have a gander.
