Once again, for those who greatly enjoy our Big Takeover Magazine print issues and this site (I hope that means you!), you might enjoy my weekly radio show too (new show every Monday), as I play a ton of stuff that is covered in our pages and here as well, both old and new:
This week’s show Tafter my son aces The Easybeats: The History of Apple Pie (new!), Sloan (new!), Len Price 3 (new), Bob Mould (new), Jerry Lee Lewis & His Pumping Piano, Elvis Costello & the Attractions, Dum Dum Girls, SPC ECO, Elbow, Teenage Fanclub, Pale Lights, Prophet Hens, Rock City (Big Star), Dusty Springfield, Flower, Stiff Little Fingers (new), Chino, Bevis Frond, and Mountain Man (live). Why not give us a spin?
And for unusual older songs for you as ever to shake things up, check out the “pumping” vintage Jerry Lee Lewis tandem of “John Henry” and “Hang Up My Rock and Roll Shoes,” Dusty Springfield singing a Jimmy Webb song, a pre-Big Star gem from Chris Bell and Jody Stephens, a killer 1978 Elvis Costello and the Attractions single, a post-Nils track from Alex Soria’s Chino, and just another classic from Teenage Fanclub, because they have so many, as well as old Bevis Frond and Flower. Lots of them this week for many a good reason!
Also, as I remind in this space every week (‘cause I think it’s important to reiterate), iif you want to hear any of my previous shows, you can go to my page on the site, and all 316 previous shows (and our several “Rabid Sessions show” can be heard at your leisure there as well!) Many hours of fine music, since we never repeat the same song twice!
Enjoy, ladies and true gents! and scalewags and dips as well.
