Brainwaves – Sept. 6, 2022 – Birthday’s come but once a year…

Written by on 05/09/2022

…unless they come twice. This year, Brainwaves is celebrating Brian’s birthday twice – with a special birthday episode this week and another next week, too. Birthday songs from Altered Images, Kings of Leon, Ex Cops and the Beatles (of course). So go out and make some noise, don’t be silent like the Delgados, Thomas Dolby, Goo Goo Dolls and the Dickies (who give us four songs about silence). Happy birthday to everyone who has a special day this week!
