David Nance

One of the most interesting rock musicians that showed up on the scene in the past few years is David Nance from Nebraska. Last year we heard his excellent album Staunch Honey and now he’s back as a part of the band called Astute Palate. Billy Childish is very active recently and we check out his new album with CTFM. Billy Childish is active but not as active as Daniel Romano, who is here again with yet another project called Spider Bites. Melvins have a new single and it’s a peculiar tribute to Beach Boys. We hear new music from Muck and The Mires and introduce Cleveland’s Red Devil Ryders, Advertisement from Seattle and Isolators from Buffalo.

Radio Days

Twenty years ago, on a Saturday morning of January 14th 2001, I walked into KLSU studio and broadcasted the very first Little Lighthouse over the radio. Soon after that, I had an idea to put mp3 recordings of the show on my website and basically created the first podcast in the world (maybe?!). Twenty years later, I still do this weekly, delighting a negligible amount of listeners. And so we go into the 21st year with some new music from Kelley Stoltz, Radio Days, Mark Crozer, Andy Bopp, Guided By Voices, Pushups. But we start with good old Dukes of Stratosphear that inspired all this that I do and we end with a bouquet of Bob Dylan tunes.
