@LopsidedWorld Of L -SUNDAY FEBRUARY 18, 8pm

Once there was a band from the late 70s -early 80s that captured the hearts of so many music aficionados. XTC. Many still cite them as a groundbreaking group. Andy Partridge left a lasting impression. Two of the original members Colin Moulding and Terry Chambers have been silent for years, but no more. With new music the two have risen as TC&I. This week on #374 you will hear two songs that not only sound like XTC sans Andy, but are lyrical and pop wonders. I’ve spent time with Colin a couple of times in years past and couldn’t be prouder than to play these gems for you.
