This week’s Brainwaves features a cornucopia of great indie and classic pop tunes, including Blackfield, Pearl Harbor and the Explosions, R.E.M., Madness, 20/20, Of Monsters and Men, and Death Cab for Cutie.
A year ago, the world seemed like it was fracturing into left and right camps. Have we come together? Not so much. Which makes this episode of Brainwaves that much more timely. The first hour of the show features music with “left” in the title. In the second half, we give equal time to the right. But don’t worry – it’s not political. Just great Brainwaves music.
It’s Brian’s birthday on Friday. So let’s celebrate on this week’s Brainwaves with some birthday music. Beatles, Altered Images, Kings of Leon, Ex Cops and String Theory start the show. Plus a Bowie song and a cover of a Bowie song by Peter Gabriel. And a shout out to my vegan wife with the Hermit Crabs.
Music this week on Brainwaves from Fool’s Garden, Kings of Leon, King Crimson, King Charles and King Harvest + Queen. And a Martha and a Molly. It’s eclectic alternative radio with Brian Blum.
Summer music continues this week on Brainwaves – more upbeat summery songs to start the show with the classic 80s college hit “I Wanna be a Lifeguard” from Blotto. Plus Brainwaves favorite Rosi Golan, Mission of Burma, OMD, The Killers and much more.
