It's another week of must listen radio!
On Thu Jun 14 from 9:00 to 10:00 PM, & also from 10:30 to 11:00 PM, I'll be playing--in order--the songs performed by Fountains Of Wayne in their Minneapolis show of Wed Jun 13.
From 10:00 to 10:30 PM, I'll play episode 7 of the short-lived, little-loved sketch comedy radio show KPUT, originally broadcast on KRUI in Iowa City.
Every Thursday night from 10:00 to 10:30 PM, I play a set of comedy built on one or more themes. Tonight's theme is commercials--featuring National Lampoon & KPUT, with a little Saturday Night Live and Duck's Breath.
From 10:30 to 11:00 PM, I play soul, funk and R&B from the 50s, 60s & 70s. Tonight I'll play The Brothers Johnson and The Undisputed Truth, among many others.
From 9:00 to 10:00 PM, I'll play some of the new Fountains Of Wayne album "Traffic And Weather" (released this week) and a new anti-war song from Richard Thompson called "Dad's Gonna Kill Me", from his album "Sweet Warrior" to be released May 29.
