Have an absolutely beautiful rest of your life.
It seems we say goodbye to someone every episode and this time there are three new all access passes to the afterparty to bid adieu; Daniel Johnston, Eddie Money and Ric Ocasek. A batch of potent power pop centered new releases are also in the mix, headlined by the always brilliant Pernice Brothers, new find The Bishop’s Daredevil Stunt Club and a wonderful new effort from The Anderson Council. New to me Karate Boogaloo wins best new band name prize this episode, while Robbie Robertson and Death Cab For Cutie's latest work rubs elbows with new archival arrivals from Miles Davis, Peter Gabriel, Chicago Transit Authority, Art Pepper and The Cult. There’s also a bit of a tribute to Nick Lowe for no apparent reason and the same goes for Michael Penn. And we haven’t even mentioned that Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, The Mama’s and Papa’s, Laurie Anderson, Hudson-Ford and Ken Nordine are just some of the other boys and girls on the bus. Thanks as always for your generous support (https://paypal.me/pools/c/8beKwFWlHR) and most of all for listening.
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.
