We talk with Mike Marrone, former DJ and program director for The Loft channel on satellite radio. Mike now hosts “From the Basement with Mike Marrone” on Mixcloud. Check out mikemarrone.com for more info. (Thanks to Keith Jacobsen, a patron of the pod, for setting up this interview.)
We answer your correspondence! Ben Montgomery writes about his quest to get Nada Surf CDs autographed. And Kevin Clement calls to talk about how the artists of the 4AD label got him through a health scare.
Sure, Nada Surf was “Popular” for a moment. But there’s so much more to this band’s work than that 1996 song. One Nada Surf album in particular — 2005’s “The Weight is a Gift” — means a lot to Patrick. And we take a call from listener Justin Steiner. It’s all part of a weeklong series on artists whose hit song doesn’t do them justice.
