I love you matador for putting together this beautiful lineup. You can read more on their blog here.

Listen to Standing on the Verge, they are the ones that gave me the heads up about this.

This coming Wednesday my very special DJ-cohost for almost 2 to 3 years (so long I can’t remember) is joining me and we are *GASP* going to play our favorite albums/singles EVER! I’m nervous, I have to sit down and dig deep into my innermost feelings to do this. I anticipate this may be our greatest show ever.

Listen in this Wednesday 8pm till 10pm on KRUI 89.7fm, you can also listen on line here.

On a side note, Sonic Youth is releasing a new album and a free 128 kb stream on matador. It’s called the eternal.

It seems like I always find out about these things from these crazy kids, you should tune into them too.
