Returning to our normal time-slot (Fridays, 6-8 PM ET), Jim Adair and myself (Mike Pop) brought the best of yesterday's, today's, and tomorrow's alternative and indie rock to the college airwaves, only on 88.3 FM KUR. Last week's Saturday shift was a fun one-off show, but we really love our two hours on Friday nights (and we know you do, too). It was one our first shows in a long time that we were not graced with beautiful, sunny Spring weather. Instead we got hit with a booming thunderstorm and a pounding downpour. Good thing we broadcast in a basement. This week's show was as vibrant and uppity as The Thermals concert in Philadelphia the night before (Jim and I both attended, met the band, and were treated to a great punk rock setlist). So we gushed for a bit and retold some tales from that evening. Music-wise, we brought you the standard "Grade A" college rock we bring every week. New music featured The Black Keys, The Dead Weather, Pete Yorn, Fionn Regan, Toro Y Moi, and Slow Club. The "Cover" brought guilty pleasure Hall & Oats into the scene, the "Trunk" opened with an early 'Mats demo, and the "Boss-Tune" was my personal favorite Springsteen single of all time ("Gotta learn to live with whatcha' can't rise above!"). Thanks to everyone who tuned in and called into the studio. Tune in next week for another great set.
