This week's "Big Takeover on Breakthru Radio" show: new Jimi Goodwin, Savage Republic, Youngteam, old Xavier Cugat, and more!

19 May 2014

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 after a short bit of 1956 Chuck Berry: Baby Strange, BNLX, Soft Science, Dead Leaf Echo, Mountain Man (live), Prophet Hens, Youngteam, Real Estate, Xavier Cugat (featuring Lina Romay), Mega City Four, Marc Ganancias, X,Wire, Noh Mercy, Jimi Goodwin, Catherine Wheel, Headshy, Savage Republic, andWithered Hand. Why not tune in?

This week’s amusing song is a pre-rock ‘n’ roll classic of the 40s era, in this case a rumba, 1943’s “She’s a Bombshell From Brooklyn” by Xavier Cugat (featuring Lina Romay) —that’s my favorite track this show. I also tell a (hopefully) amusing story about inheriting one of his late ’60s records from my parents that I had heard so often when i was a toddler/pre-teen and really loving his rumba version of the then-brand new Donovan hit single, “Mellow Yellow.” Stuff like that broadens your taste for life, perhaps.

Also, if you want me to solve the mystery (if you’re not British, that is) of just who the titular “Fat Controller” is in the Catherine Wheel song, you’ll just have to listen to the show!

And boy can those three women of Mountain Man sing together. I just plain swoon….

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 306 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!

Enjoys, ladies and gentlemen! And other carbon based life!
