The Fink File Presents: Blur on WDRE with Loscalzo 1994

Tuesday, April 18th, 2006

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.”

Download Podcast mp3

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.

Show Notes

  • Casey Kasem’s legendary freak out.
  • Cousin Brucie fucking rocks, so do all the ol’ WABC, WMCA, WCBS-FM jocks. Without out reverb, YOU ARE NOT A MAN….much less a DISC JOCKEY.
  • Orson Welles, Martin and Lewis have meltdowns.
  • Steve Leeds - one of our favorite humans (pictured above zonking out in 1975)- subjects himself to lunch at the Times Square Howard Johnson’s with Homer and Qfwfq. He’s our first “real” guest (aside from comic book Dan), mostly because he’s already been on 2 other podcasts (King Curry and that fake tranny guy’s show).
  • Who the fuck is Madge Weinstein?
  • Is Adam Curry really as dreamy as he sounds?
  • He’s not married to a Norwegian porn star. But she was in Stars on 45 and Kayak.
  • Curry worked at Radio Veronica.
  • Archie Comics are still being published.
  • We bought our iRiver at Best Buy, but you should buy it here.
  • Steve quizzes our use of Yiddish.
  • Steve has been to the Curry Cottage!
  • Obligatory Dan mention.
  • Steve asks about Fink merch.
  • Homer met Steve at the 1985 New Music Seminar.
  • Mr. Curry met with Mr. Jobs because Fink asked him why his iPod recording sounded like shit.
  • Dan should date Jenna Bush.
  • Uncle Floyd
  • Mr. Curry has a staff.
  • It’s hard to subscribe to comic books.
  • When is the Hojo closing?
  • Tony Hawk doesn’t wipe out.
  • My pal Maxx is an OK motorcycle driver.
