Wow! I hadn’t even thought of how it would affect reissues for the 00 bands. No masters to remaster. What a huge loss. That artist list is unreal. No wonder they didn’t report it. Lawsuit time.
I listened about this yesterday on NPR. So sad… the list of masters lost is hard to comprehend.
Today is College Radio Day.
I credit/blame college radio with my life-long obsession with music.
I started listening to WIDR the college radio station at Western Michigan University back when I was in high school in the mid 70’s. Before that I listened to an “Underground” FM station. WIDR sponsored a lot of great events and music shows around town and promoted new, less popular music that I was and still am drawn to. They had a show called Bits & Pieces that was on at noon every weekday and played an hour of music by a particular band or artist. So many of the artists they picked - it was kind of a best-of format -were favorites of mine. I often taped the shows on cassette. They also had a show called Bottoms and Tops that featured a new album that would fit into their playlist. This was great music and molded my musical views from that point on. I still have many of those tapes and listen to them occasionally out in the studio.
I still listen to college radio. Mostly The Globe in Goshen, Indiana.
Here’s the last three songs they’ve played:
Oklahoma - Keb Mo
Wind Blows Chloe - Foy Vance
I Wanna Be Your Dog - Uncle Tupelo
The DJ who is probably under 20 pronounce their name Uncle Tupey -Low.
Touch my monkey!
That’s one of those garbage links where it loads 10 pages deep so that when you try to use your back button you are in a forever spiral and can never leave unless you go back 10 layers at once.
I always wondered why anyone with a blog would allow such bullshit navigation to be applied to their blog if they actually want people to return and read a second time.
I did not know that Peter Gabriel put of German versions of two of his albums. Since I am not German, I also kind of don’t care. It seems they are taking a novelty and turning into something with some obscure meaning. Like a ‘George Washington slept here’ thing.
Not being negative, it just seems that way.
Sounds like you’re being negative, Bruv.
This sounds pretty horrible.
I’m a fan.
My kids requested “Red Right Hand” every time we took a road trip and this went on for nearly two years.
I think I mentioned we’ve been live streaming like everyone else. On this last one, a guy who usually films live bands (when that used to happen) took our shitty phone stream and up res’d it and put it on YouTube. Anyway, here we are.
I started watching this stream on FB, but got interrupted and missed this song.
One of my favorite songs
You guys are good!
Thank you balv
Great stuff, thanks for sharing!
