Fan favorite Echo Park Jimmy returns to the show and gives us a Top 4 countdown of summer jams. This is in a series of phone messages that we’ve been sleeping on since late June.
We conclude Greatest Hits Week with our most popular episode of 2018. You all really enjoyed hearing Nick Scalera talk about the current bands in the Flying Nun Records galaxy of stars. We get it – the Courtneys, Aldous Harding, Fazerdaze, Wax Chattels – they’re great bands.
Our favorite story from 2018. Scott Carney of Wax Fang talks about how an episode of “American Dad” came to be built around his song “Majestic.”
Another of our favorite episodes from 2018. This is the first part of our interview with an artist you need to know: Lee Bains III.
As we change the calendar to 2019, we look back on some favorite episodes of the past year. Let’s start with our interview with Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia. He talks about his music fandom and plays a tune for us on his harmonica.
What’s the most popular episode from our first year? The one where we talked about the Cure’s best songs, featuring Matt Sebastian from the Slicing Up Eyeballs website. Enjoy it again here as we close out First Anniversary Week.
We revisit one of our favorite interviews of our first year, with rock ‘n’ roll savant Dave Bielanko of Marah.
First Anniversary Week continues with a look back at that time our friend Tug Baker told us about playing in a Replacements cover band.
For our first anniversary, we revisit some favorite episodes, starting with the one where our wives hung out in the basement and we talked about marital musical differences.
Tom Petty Week continues. We call Matthew Sweet and Chuck Prophet to get their takes on the rock/pop legend.
