It’s an episode programmed by you, the listeners! This edition of Fan Mail Friday includes songs by Bonny Doon, Concrete Blonde, the Spice Girls with Echo & the Bunnymen (what?), the Lightning Seeds, Better Than Ezra and more. (There’s even a song about poo; it was bound to happen.) Our friend Adam Woodard joins in the fun.
You know that rippin’ theme music for Rockin’ the Suburbs? It’s actually called “Ascension,” and it’s performed by Knoxville, Tenn.’s greatest cosmic power trio, Quartjar. Today, guitarist/singer Randall Brown joins via Skype to reveal his Record Store Day scores (Flaming Lips, The Claypool Lennon Delirium) and discuss Quartjar’s new album, “Squatch: An Odyssey in Space and Time.”
