Brainwaves – August 30, 2022 – One more summer song

Written by on 30/08/2022

The summer is starting to wane (even if the temperatures are still on the rise). So Brainwaves has one more summer song for you – the classic Blotto anthem, “I Wanna Be a Lifeguard.” Plus three telephone songs from 10cc, Kraftwerk and ELO. And great music from Interpol, New Order, Rosi Golan, Mission of Burma, Splinter and Tangerine Dream. Bid adieu to summer (or at least to August) by tuning in!
