Lelee

Today we have a couple of new releases from the States. From Milwaukee, we have the new band for us, Rexxx, over in Texas, Night Beats released a new album. Poison Boys from Chicago have a new single for Madd in Chico, CA. Now, the latter artists creates troubles for tracking them down, because we had them previously as Madde and as The Viles, but we’re still keeping an eye on them. In Australia, we check out Brenton Manser and The Disciples of Zen. Over in Italy, Radio Days has a new recrod. And lastly, in Slovenia, Lelee has just released probably the strongest album in Yugoslavia since the breakup of the country. Period! We finish the show with a tribute to Zoran Simjanovic, one of the pioneers of Yugo Rock and an important movie score composer who passed away on April 11 this year.

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.
