KCRW Broadcast 538

Fanatic! If you're living in any part of the world that's enduring high temperatures, hopefully this show provides some relief. I just talked to Ian in DC and he says it's plenty hot but at the same time, it's just another summer day there. He also added that when we were young and on summer vacation from school, we did all the normal things but we did them slower.

Fanatic, if you look below, we have a bit of a concept going on in our second hour. I warned you that we were going to do something like this at least a couple of times this year. I was listening to the Kim Salmon album weeks ago, and it occurred to me that this would be perfect for a total immersion listening experience. I hope you like it. I listened to the album again last night.

You'll also see that we're listening to the Oh Sees Grave Blockers EP from start to finish. The reason is that for me at least, it's not a record that you can pull any single track from and to really appreciate it, we should just play the entire thing. A lot of Oh Sees this month, I know but hey, it's a Fanatic show. The EP reissue was rolled out very artistically. The first press run was clear with a green blob in the middle, then there was a run in green and one in clear. Hopefully, we'll get on that's green with a clear blob in the middle. It's a great record from start to finish and it's out on Castle Face Records right now.

Speaking of the Oh Sees, here’s this reminder once again:

Fanatic, I wanted to give you a heads up on this, should be a great show. On Sunday, August 18, John Dwyer of The Oh Sees will be our guest and we will be playing the new Oh Sees album Face Stabber from start to finish.

Fanatic, I hope you dig the show thanks for listening.

Seek shade, maintain your hydration discipline and STAY FANATIC!!!
