The Difficult Third Basementcast


This is basementcast number three, but I’m still working out the kinks.  For some reason everything seems a bit overmodulated, especially me.  But, I guess I always was a loud talker.  A big thanks to my kid sister and her husband who got me the new microphone for my birthday.  They must have been listening and took pity.  I’m still figuring it out, but it makes it a whole lot more fun talking into a real mic.  As for the music, there’s tons of good stuff coming out every week, especially 7 inch single these days.  I try to cover a bunch of them, but somehow still left out a bunch like the Fresh and Onlys, The Pink Noise and Happy Burger to name only a few.  I guess you can’t play everything, and there’s always next month.

    I was hoping you’d play some of those Hozac Hookup singles. But no argument with your selections. Let’s hear it for the Q1U!

    Oh yeah, I forgot about those too. There is just way too much good stuff. Each one of these things gets a little longer and I still can’t fit it all in.

    abe vigoda – great character actor noted for being in Barney Miller (great 70’s sitcom about life in a police station) as Sgt Fish. A fantastic role. Most people would recognize him from his role in The Godfather as one of the main mafia dudes.
