July 14 Broadcast/Primitive Sounds/Cranktones and More at The Midway July 22!
Happy mid-summer, and I hope all's well with my listeners. Feel free to get in touch via Facebook and let me know. If you hear records or bands that might be a good fit for the program I'd love to hear about it--let me know. Thanks for listening too!
If you missed last night's show you can find the free archive here, along with a few years' worth of previous broadcasts.
Remember that we have a huge rockin' show coming up at the Midway next Saturday night (July 22): Roy Sludge, the Cranktones, the Fearless Leaders, and the Barley Hoppers (with Easy Ed's Record Hop). Advance tickets available at the Midway's site.
On July 19 I'll be spinning the Primitive Sounds at Brass Union in Somerville with my special guest DJ Jason Thornton. 8:00 PM start, no cover, excellent food and drink. Hope to see you there!
