KCRW Broadcast 366 Fanatic! Just like we told you, we are happening on the premier of the brand new Summer Flake album Hello Friends in our second hour. It’s a great record. I am happy we are able to bring this to you before the rest of the world gets it. I have always thought stuff like this was super cool. If I may be so bold, I think our show is the perfect place for something like this.
KCRW Broadcast 362 Fanatic! It is yet another great show we have lined up here. Before any show is finished, I have listened to it at least twice. It’s a great way to make sure it’s all it can be. It’s a great way to make sure it works. This one works. It never occurs to me that these shows should be anything less that excellent, which is a little much but if you’re going to ask for someone’s attention, then you should try to bring the best.
KCRW Broadcast 361 Fanatic. As promised, here is our David Bowie broadcast. It was an interesting experience, going over so many amazing albums and being spoiled for choice at all times. I thought we should go somewhat chronological at first and then pick great tracks all the way to the bottom of the second hour.
KCRW Broadcast 360 Fanatic! We have been given the green light to start in on the new Iggy album, Post Pop Depression, which is due for release in March 18. I have been listening to it for a few weeks and it’s very good. We will be able to unleash another track in a couple of weeks. Apparently, there will be a lot of shows featuring Mr. Pop and Mr. Homme.
KCRW Broadcast 355 Fanatic. It’s been quite a week, hasn’t it? It is obvious that everyone passes away but some people are larger than life and when they eventually leave, it’s almost science fiction. A world without David Bowie is simply less artistic, less mysterious, less musical. We are very lucky to have the records he made.
