Gave away two copies of the new Clem Snide album, The Meat of Life, out on 429 Records at the end of the month. Chris and Adam will have it before anyone else on their block..er, blocks. We also dipped into The Album Leaf’s new record, and enjoyed the adorable Kitty, Daisy Lewis.
This morning we celebrated the 8th Annual Rejection Day, counter-Valentine’s Day special. This meant songs from Hank, Patsy, Richard Thompson and John Prine—they must be part of every year’s special due to their large catalog of sad songs of rejection. We also heard first-timers to the morning of misery, including Charlie Hunter, Juliana Hatfield and local group the Roe Family Singers debuted their new Radio Round-Up weekly segment on PWB. Check the playlist for more, and thanks for all the great requests!
Some music from New Orleans and Brazil mixed in to this morning’s mix of new music from 2010. We welcomed the 2nd installment of the Roe Family Singers Radio Round-Up:http://www.myspace.com/roefamilysingers at 7:45am, and Robert Everest:http://www.roberteverest.com came in at 8:15 to talk about the 10th annual Carnaval Brasiliero (Friday, Feb. 19th at the Fine Line). New Charlie Hunter, Wanda Jackson, and Juliana Hatfield this morning, too.
