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.
The new Guided By Voices release, “August By Cake,” is reportedly Robert Pollard’s 100th album (with GBV or as a solo artist or in side projects). That’s a lot of idiosyncratic indie rock. Jim & Patrick discuss, with special appearances by Jasper Colt and Slicing Up Eyeball’s Matt Sebastian.
