I love you.

This show is all about love and sweet sounds. Why? Because, I’m in a sappy mood (due to the dream-boat/newly-acquired-fiance featured in the image below). Join me tonight on KRUI 89.7fm or online here.

Sub Pop

March 23, 2009

This week I’m going to be featuring the record label, Sub Pop. Sub Pop was founded in Seattle, Washington in the mid 80s and rose to fame with bands like Nirvana and Mudhoney. They have also received recent commercial success with bands like the Postal Service and the Shins.
