*Background music consisted of various cult classic tunes from the 1980s. They ranged from A-ha to Violent Femmes, from cheesy to epic, covering multiple genres.

In what was described by a handful of our longtime, loyal listeners as "one of [our] most energetic shows", Jim Adair and myself presented the 38th installment of our college radio work of art: Never Mind the Mainstream. It's never a dull moment when the both of us get into that tiny studio and spin the best alternative and indie from yesterday, today, and tomorrow. This week we welcomed two former KUR members from years past onto the show: Manny and Cody. Both of these of two gentlemen have had large impacts on our time at KUR and we enjoyed having them talk on our show and through the airwaves to all of you. This week saw the NMTM crew playing some tunes we've been craving to spin for a while now, including a wintry gem from Bon Iver, a travelin' jingle from R.E.M., and a house jam from The Rapture. New music brought to you by Monsters Of Folk, Editors, The Happy Hollows, and Fionn Regan. Classics for all those old-timers out there presented via Morrissey, Sonic Youth, Ian Dury, and of course, Bruce Springsteen. We were both jacked up on coffee and treated the show like a circus, as it tends to get sometimes. Next week will be a show on the fly, as Jim may or may not go solo. I have to take a comprehensive exam to graduate from this crazy place, so we may be recording the gig and having it go off on Friday. Only time will tell. Regardless, as always, thanks for tuning in and participating by phoning in or messaging us. Tune in next week for another great set.

Bon Iver - "Blood Bank"
