The day ahead on WGXC 90.7-FM
1 a.m.: Vital Weekly: Howard Stelzer Episode 960 of weekly experimental new music show, by folks formerly behind Staalplaat. Click on title for playlist 960.
2 a.m.: FFFoxy Podcast: The Hafler Trio This episode of the FFFoxy Podcast (#48) runs the stylistic gamut maybe more noticeably than usual. Throughout the show you’ll hear everything from saccharine pop songs (Piano Movers, Jerry Paper) to blasted riff rock (Exhaustion, Shooting Guns) to text-based shenanigans (Yeast Culture, The Hafler Trio) and several points in between. There simply was a lot of great music to cover; in fact, this might be the most tracks we’ve ever played in a single episode of the show. Hopefully everything flows together in a way that doesn’t sound too jarring on your ears. Throughout the show you’ll also hear the phrase “_____, who put out one of my favorite releases of the year” tossed around a few times, so it’s worth mentioning that we’ll be putting together our year-end “FFFavorites” list once again in the week’s ahead. This year we are going to be featuring 50 titles broken down into the following categories: 20 favorite albums, 20 favorite tapes, 10 favorite reissues/archival releases. We won’t, however, be doing any type of year-end recap on the podcast show itself, we’ve got plenty of other new music and feature shows to get to.
