Record Store Day Show

Record Store Day took place on Saturday, April 17th. It is a celebration of the independent record store, manifested through a ton of exclusive releases and lots of freebies and giveaways.

I started doing this show beginning with last year's RSD and it was alot of fun. The kick is that I haven't heard any of these releases -- they're as new to me as they will be to you. This brings some spontaneity and surprise into the mix.

Here's a short list of what you might hear on the show:

The Thermals, The Cribs, The Album Leaf, Devo, Phoenix, Joe Strummer, Sharon Jones, Tuneyards, Dum Dum Girls, Gogol Bordello, Flaming Lips, Telekinesis and much much more. Most of this is on 7" singles.

Tune IN!

Thanks for the requests! I’m always glad when it works out and I or KBOO actually have the songs that people want to hear. Dumpster Dave requested Buzzcocks’ “Ever Fallen In Love” and there just happened to be a live version in the KBOO library. He called back a little later to request The Clash’s “Armagideon Time”, and I was just about to play a different cut off The Clash - Live At Shea Stadium. Serendipity is what I think they call it.

And then there is the guy that calls weekly requesting Ministry’s “N.W.O” - he needs it to make his time at work go by faster. KBOO (and KPSU) used to get me through long evenings doing data entry for the post office, so I can totally relate.

Happy Birthday to my sister Wendy! I played B-52's "Strobelight" for her, even though she was probably asleep. When we were kids we used to laugh so hard at that song, especially when Fred Schneider says "Lemme kiss your PINEAPPLE!"

In other news, I should have a couple of guests on the program next month. Boy Eats Drum Machine is a local one-man band whose album "booomboxxx" is a great listen. Super XX Man also live here in PDX, they have a new album out called "There'll Be Diamonds" and there's a song on there called "Medication" that I think is the best thing they've ever done. I should have more specific information soon as to exact dates and times.

Finally, thanks to those twitter users who have begun following 'anodyneradio'. Feel free to add me and you can even request songs that way if you'd like.

It was difficult getting to and from KBOO for this show, what with the snow and freezing rain and all, but am so glad that I did! Thanks to my mom for loaning me her big red rental sleigh, and for everyone that called in. It feels really good to know that people are out there listening!

Johnny Indovina from Human Drama's new disc

I am hoping you'll add a track from the new disc by Johnny Indovina & Sound of the Blue Heart; I think it's a good fit for the show (I'm here in Portland).

Should I send you the cd?

Here's the links to sample some of the tracks:

Hope to hear from you soon,
