Another nugget from the Loscalzo vault. This time, it’s Britpop Godfathers Blur with an in-studio performance. This group of lads is still relevant 12 years later as frontman Damon Albarn is currently hot with his cartoon band Gorillaz, Graham Coxon is enjoying solo success and drummer Dave Rowntree has a cartoon project of his own called Empire Square (but it’s on some channel no one gets, so not a soul will see it in the US).
This interview is also highlighted by an appearance of Mrs. Gyrtlebaumer a regular “character” on Loscalzo’s show. “Gyrtlebaumer was a brilliant crank caller and I loved having him…errr…her on the show,” Loscalzo tells us. “This was a fun day for us as we had just opened a new ’state of the art’ studio and nothing was working properly. Blur fanatics will love this as the band’s performance was great.”
Our pal Loscalzo has opened up his vault to us and provided this simply fascinating interview with Greg Dulli from 1994 on WDRE/Long Island. This is from the time when Dulli was red hot with his Afghan Whigs release Gentlemen and the video for the title song was all over MTV. Special appearance by Lenny the Intern (now the King of Indianapolis radio) and Peter Puberty make this a cool treat for any serious Dulli fan.
Loscalzo says, “Great hearing that old tape again, hope Dulli fans enjoy it.”

It was the early 90s and the world was batshit over Nirvana and “modern rock”. However the most dynamic recorded work of the period was this collection of poems by former Buffalo Bills center Adam Lingner. Read by the velvety voiced Ira Westridge, this collection of literary genius is a must listen for any serious fan of the spoken word. While Lingner himself has never fessed up to writing these clever bon mots (he’s now a successful motivational speaker — natch!), it’s clearly motived by modesty and not shame. Enjoy!

Lots of stuff happening this week. WCBS-FM gets blown up, hence our homage to WMCA and Cousin Brucie’s Beatles casts on WABC. Our pal Steve Leeds subjected himself to our grilling at the Time Square Hojo’s. We’ve also included ubiquitous meltdowns from Casey Kasem, Orson Welles and Martin and Lewis.

The Aristocrats #002: Despite the fact that Fink “used to do this for a living” the second installment of the Aristocrats is a little rough technically. However, this week takes us on an exciting audio journey featuring music from Uncle Jimmy’s Dirty Basement, wacky old radio commercials, the obligatory 77 WABC jingles and some cool podsafe music. And now…as the King of all Podcasting Adam Curry would say… here are the Show Notes.
