Alpha Consumer members: Mike Lewis, Jeremy Ylvisaker and JT Bates joined Spin w/ Cyn, celebrating their 10th anniversary this week, spinning music from their various music projects over the past 10 years, including Alpha Consumer and Interference – their name b4 AC, Andrew Bird, Bon Iver, and music of Mike and Jeremy's parents (from 1967 album Cool Livin')  Jeremy's son.

I also spun music from artists performing the upcoming KFAI Benefit at Turf Club and the SPMC tribute to Tommy Hallett.

Tonight it's Fowley's Follies: a tribute to writer, producer, performer and pot-stirer Kim Fowley, who passed away on January 15, 2015. Fowley had his hand in tons of projects from the 1960s to present day. This enigmatic svengali worked with everyone—from Blue Cheer to Helen Reddy, the Murmaids, Kiss, and of course, the Runaways. DJ Izzy spins the music, and special call-in guest Paul Metsa spins the tales.

Play list for this week.
