It's been days and the mail keeps coming in from all over the world. The verdict is in and you Fanatics dug our Frank Zappa show immensely! Thank you for all the ecstatic mail. It's always great to hear from you of course. Perhaps one of the best validations we have ever gotten on our little show came last week in the form of two letters from two different members of the Zappa family, thanking us for our Frank tribute. Nice. Also, a bit of a relief that our well meant show was not taken in the wrong way.
Now tonight, we have a great mix of tunes. I promised you that we would get into that new version of Kill City and we waste no time doing it. I hope that some of you have checked out this new mix, it's fantastic. I am several plays into the thing and am digging it.
It's all our house jams until we get to track thirteen. I just got a large box of jams from Jack White. He has a cool label called Third Man. I have done quite a bit of listening to the jams and there is some real good stuff. Tonight we listen to some Jack solo, it's a good one.
I got the ok from Marisa who gave me the new Deerhoof record weeks ago to play this track for you. They are letting the tracks out one at a time until the end of the year. A really great track on the album called I Did Crime For You is not ready to be turned loose yet but as soon as it is, I will play it. Overall, the record is excellent and we will get well into it next year, something to look forward to.
I hope you dig the Cobalt track. It's from a not so easy to find 4CD set that Teen Beat put out a long time ago called Wakefield. I have seen it only twice. It could be that the Teenbeat site has this song for download, I don't know. Great song. Staying in the Teenbeat mode, you know how much we dig that label on this show. I go to the site often to check out if there's anything new. Great happiness! A new hollAnd EP for download. Sounds great. http://www.teenbeatrecords.com/ for more information.
Wait until you hear tonight's Toumast track, it's sublime. We are playing another FZ track tonight, a hair of the dog idea there. It's been awhile since we played anything by the excellent Erase Eratta, what a band. If you have never checked them out, great stuff.
Finally, we get into the Dylan mono box. My favorite track from my favorite Dylan album, Blonde On Blonde, Visions of Johanna. What a song and SO great in mono.
The proof is right in front of you, Fanatic. It's a great show and we are going to have a great time laying it on you so tune in if you can.
As the man once said, "To each his reach and if I can't cop, it ain't mine to have but I'll be reachin' for ya. . ."
This Saturday evening, each for your radio's dial, tune it 89.9 KCRW, crank it up and STAY FANATIC!!!
