This week, we’re playing records from our personal collections that you can’t easily find on streaming services, if at all. Jim digs out ’90s compilations of cartoon covers — “Schoolhouse Rock Rocks!” and “Saturday Morning.” Featuring Better Than Ezra, Pavement, Biz Markie, Butthole Surfers, and Liz Phair and Material Issue.
Summer is here! This week, Jim and Patrick hang out by friend Greg Wilson’s pool and talk about music that should be the soundtrack to your summer. Plus, a little tribute to Gregg Allman. Rest in power.
Perfect Pop Week continues with two listener picks, one by Texas pop-rockers Fastball (it was the song of the summer in 1998) and the other by New Zealand indie rockers Garageland.
On this edition of Fan Mail Friday: A correction about a soccer song, a story about mixtapes and tunes by: New Order, Pet Shop Boys and Pavement, among others. Plus, some surprises!
Our Perfect Pop series continues, as guest Nate Scott makes a pick. He goes with a tune by Songs: Ohia. You’ll love it (because it’s perfect). Plus, Jim and Patrick play other selections from Nate’s playlist of “perfect songs.”
