Always fun realizing that the podcast needs to get done earlier than normal. This whole thing was recorded Tuesday evening, after a very long and hot day, in order to free up all day Wednesday for Warped Tour at Sandstone. Hopefully, I managed to snag a bunch of interviews which will run on next week’s show.
Before all that, we’ve got a lot of loud and fast music, some of which showed up in the mail just hours before I sat down in the Nuthouse basement to put needle to vinyl and record the whole thing. There are also quite a few songs I can’t believe haven’t ever gotten played on the program, despite being some of my favorite tunes. I guess I just assumed they’d made it on during the first few episodes, when I went a little crazy playing my favorite cuts.
During the show, I mentioned that the writers of Paul Revere & the Raiders’ “Kicks,” Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, had been on Sound Opinions a couple weeks back. Check out their appearance here. And you should just go ahead and subscribe to Sound Opinions‘ podcast, anyhow. This week’s episode, on the best releases of the year-to-date, was one of the best they’ve done in ages.
