Have an absolutely beautiful rest of your life.
Episode 40 (#2 from Joe’s Garage) is kind of a landmark as I have finally gotten around to configuring a way to actually pay for the show. If you are already on http://mikemarrone.com simply look to the right and click Donate. If not, please go there and look to the right. Okay? Thanks. Musically speaking, this episode manages to cover all the major musical food groups and features a new remastered material from Matthew Sweet and Ben E. King, rare live stuff from two of our finest humans -- Peter Holsapple with Syd Straw, a jazzy take on Blondie from The Bad Plus, the jazz genius of Dave Brubeck, live stuff from the latest tour from The Dream Syndicate (with Chris Cacavas) and Todd Rundgren recorded in 1971. Also Let’s Active, Game Theory, The dB’s, Simon & Garfunkel, Lou Reed, The Byrds, John Cale, Polar Bear, The Roots, Renaissance, Joe’s Steven Wilson pick, The Grapes Of Wrath, The Posies, eels, Maia Sharp, Split Enz, Yes, Ani Difranco, Lori Carson, Spoon, OMD and even Peter & Quagmire with my current earworm. We remember Dean Ford of Marmalade, who passed last week at age 73 to the Afterparty In The Sky and still manage to fit in Chris Bell, Harry Nilsson and Three Dog Night into the mix, without a trainwreck in sight or sound.
Many have asked how to keep the From The Basement programs afloat, especially now that I am unemployed. Please donate via PayPal below whatever you feel you can afford to help cover my costs. Thank you.
