KCRW Broadcast 536

Fanatic! If you’re stateside, I hope you had a good holiday weekend. It always goes too fast for me. I got a lot of music listened to. Right now, I’m listening to, yet again, the Peel Sessions of the Birthday Party. Two things here. This is perfect warm weather listening and the performances are incredible. Run do not walk to a vinyl version of this one. Beware of bootlegs.

We have a great show lined up for you. A bit of a concept happening in our second hour. I thought we should listen to the first album by The Fall from start to finish. You might have heard this one several times but I was so impressed by the sound quality of the new Cherry Red reissue, I thought we should listen to the whole thing. It’s one of the best first albums of any band I’ve ever heard. Their unique brilliance is so obvious on this one. I hope you enjoy this deep Fall immersion. I think warm weather is perfect for this kind of thing. I listened to this show all the way through yesterday to make sure I still liked it and I do, hopefully, you’ll dig it as well.

My pal from DC, Lydia, just texted me from San Francisco telling me she was watching James Williamson onstage with Cheetah Chrome. Jealous!

Thanks for listening and STAY FANATIC!!!
