I’m not going to talk about my October 19 radio show, other than this sentence and noting the playlist is below. Instead, I’m going to pump up the forthcoming October 26 show. But first, a little history behind next week’s show.
When I first moved to Mount Vernon, I purchased a 7″ single on eBay of a Seattle band called Tullycraft. After winning the auction, I received a message from one Brett Sandstrom, who noted that he lived in the neighboring town of Sedro-Woolley. We were both a bit shocked to find music obsessed individuals with a penchant for the indie stuff in the area.
Fast forward four years. I invited Brett to join me in the studio for a themed, vinyl only evening. The theme came from my fiance, Andi, who, when asked, immediately requested the ’90s. So I trekked out to Sedro-Woolley with some records the afternoon of the 19th, and we pulled together about 30 optional singles to spin next week.
The above photo is my failed attempt to play “The Fountain” by Creeper Lagoon on air. This particular single is a cool clear yellow and is part of the Sub Pop Singles Club from 1998. As long as KSVR can ensure the turntables are working properly, we’ll be in the studio next week with a big stack of 7″ singles.
