Free Money

September 30, 2009

Listen in tonight to Radio Loveless at KRUI 89.7 fm from 8 to 10 pm or online here. You never know, maybe Patti Smith will offer up some “Free Money”.

1. Patti Smith, Horses (originally released 1975, live album and digitally remastered version released in 2005. Patti’s Horses album also contains one of my all time favorite album covers, if this isn’t the image of feminism and equality I don’t know what is. It has photographer Robert Mapplethorpe’s picture of black and white androgynous Patti.), Free Money
Horses
2. Gordon Gano, Hitting the Ground (2002), Hitting the Ground
3. Black Francis, Bluefinger (2007), She Took All the Money

(On a side note the vocalist Exene Cervenka has a solo album out with Blood Shot Records that I hear is awesome! She just performed live in Brooklyn NY just last weekend. Also through the grape vine, I heard that this classic vocalist has recently been diagnosed with MS. One more reason to admire this woman who is still rocking live venues.)

“Catherine de Barra, you’ve murdered my thinking…”

August 12, 2009

This is one of my all time favorite PJ Harvey songs, I love how angry/sad it is and how she expresses her rage or envy for another person. Whenever I feel some sort of angst, this song always hits the spot.

I’m on again tonight, and it’s the last show of the summer semester. Hopefully, I’ll be on next semester again at a similar time, but for now here’s some of my set. Listen in from 8 to 10 pm at KRUI 89.7 fm or online here.
