DJ Andy Bargerstock presents 100% New Music Tracks never played before on FRINGE TOAST MUSIC. Spotlight shines on first hour with vocalist and bass player Britta Phillips (formerly of the band Luna; photo right). In the second hour, the special light shines on North Carolina's Jenks Miller and his new CD Dead Ringers described as "ambient drone psychedelic magic." Also the band River Whyless (photo left) continues with the smooth NC harmonies accompanied by mountain violin. Perhaps, the most satifying track of the evening will be Hope Sandoval formerly of Mazzy Star singing "The Spoils" with the electronic band Massive Attack (2016).

Who knew that I could just go on and on and on with my stories about the Iowa of my youth and other things??? Well it has gone on and on. And by "it" I mean The Feed Store. Tune in next week(thursday october 20 at 10AM CT and sunday october 23 at noon CT) for episode #300. Trust me--there will be no special guests in the studio(that takes time and effort). There will, however, be songs by Little Jimmy Dickens and Three Dog Night. What better way to celebrate.

Two full slabs of vinyl coming your way on the next show. The Love Explosion released its first album recently entitled Movies In Your Mind. I have been playing tracks off of this album already on my shows. Lots of instrumentals in the pop psych vein, and catchy too. We will also listen to a self-titled release by ...Of Sinking Ships. Also mostly instrumental, and the songs sort of pull you into a dreamscape. Compelling stuff from a 2007 release by the band. I am also playing my favorite track from one of my record of the year candidates, Horseback. Plus some Beat Pharmacy, Bob Marley, and The Small Faces. Cool Breeze
Celebrating the Music of Bob Dylan
A show compiled strictly for the pleasure of my wife, you will nevertheless enjoy it as it happens. Come Under Nancy's Tent is an album by The Eagle, a one-off band formed from the ashes of Beacon Street Union. It is also the theme for the show, in which you get to hear three cuts from that rockin' record, and some sweet sounds from all sorts of Nancy derivatives, like Nancy Sinatra, Nancy J, Boxcar Nancy, Nancy Wilson, and The Nancys. New music interspersed: Father John Misty, Magic Trick, Kurt Vile, Whitney, London Souls, Cool Ghouls, and Shakey Graves. The set concludes with a fave cut by Host Country. Prepare to be thoroughly entertained. The G Man
Interviews either click or they don't. Luckily, most of the time, they flow smoothly. Some times they flow like they could go on forever.
It was a real pleasure talking with Julia Turshen, and I actually discovered the "why" near the end of our discussion. Sorry, I can't give the revelation away, but I hope you'll listen and find out for yourself.
Julia has co-authored cookbooks, many for top-notch chefs and cooks like Mario Batali and Dana Cowin, and even the actor, Gwyneth Paltrow. She even hosted her own radio show for a time, Radio Cherry Bombe, on the Heritage Radio Network. Small Victories is her first cookbook, and it is an intimately personal tome full of stories that accompany each recipe.
