The day ahead on WGXC 90.7-FM
1 a.m.: Vital Weekly: Chihei Hatakeyama Episode 968 of weekly experimental new music show, by folks formerly behind Staalplaat. Click on title for playlist 968.
2 a.m.: FFFoxy Podcast: Jackie McDowell On this episode #52 of the FFFoxy Podcast, we dug into a stack of incredible new tapes that arrived in the past few weeks and months. We’ve been giving these latest tapes from Excess, Ekin Fil, Hound Dog Taylor’s Hand, and Jackie McDowell some heavy boombox play around the FFF bunker, and the just-arrived works from Three Legged Race and Thomas DeAngelo are sure to occupy some prime deck time over the coming weeks, too. We’ve also been plunging into the two and half hours worth of primo heavy psych from Burnt Hills and their latest release Slip Through Time on Tape Drift. This is a great introduction for anyone interested in checking out what this long-running upstate NY group as been up to. We also plucked out a few older works from James Rushford & Joe Talia, Bob Drake, and Small Cruel Party that all still sound as fresh as ever to these ears. There’s plenty more, of course, but we’ll let you check ‘em out on your own. Hope you enjoy this episode (despite the overuse of “kind of” as brain dead, Sunday morning verbal filler).
