TAndy 12:11:07 PM
Already this is the ultimate beach soundtrack. Totally not just saying that because I am at the beach
Jawsh 12:11:50 PM
Wow, a cover of Love and Mercy? Amazing
Dana K (host) 12:12:18 PM
It's Hue and the other members of the Pooh Sticks!
Jawsh 12:12:39 PM
So cool!
Jawsh 12:12:42 PM

In honor of the season can you play Summerhead by the Cocteau Twins?

Good pick! That one might go with some songs I'm playing later!
Michael McCool 12:18:52 PM
Thank you!
TAndy 12:35:26 PM
That Fuzzbox song was such a fkn banger 🥰
yoni from kdu 12:40:24 PM
Can I hear the Flys? The hit is fine! It's a good song no complaints about it at all
dan Cochrane 12:41:28 PM
What a set! Ok, the Bangles cover of Merry Go Round original, their YouTube video has an extraordinary picture of one of them alone, posing in her room. I think original might be on a Nuggets comp.
dan Cochrane 12:43:06 PM
Almost a one hit wonder’s quite a category too.
Dana K (host) 12:44:01 PM
It looks like the Merry Go Round song is on Nuggets Vol 4
dan Cochrane 12:44:35 PM
Dana’s Jangle!
dan Cochrane 12:45:24 PM
Wow, is this a Pylon cover?
Dana K (host) 12:46:27 PM
Came out before Pylon were a band!
Dana K (host) 12:46:45 PM
Well, I guess they formed in 78
dan Cochrane 12:47:33 PM
That riff sounded way familiar.
dan Cochrane 12:48:53 PM
I’m a grateful Dad, only enjoying your set, too hot to cut backyard grass.
Dana K (host) 12:49:57 PM
I gotta give my dad a call...
dan Cochrane 12:50:37 PM
I bet you’re a Dave Edmunds, Marshall Crenshaw fan.
Dana K (host) 12:50:46 PM
Oh yes
dan Cochrane 12:50:54 PM
Or he is…
dan Cochrane 12:51:35 PM
Dad play guitar?
Dana K (host) 12:51:49 PM
Nope, I inherited his musical talent (which is none)
dan Cochrane 12:52:34 PM
Peter Buck is Huge fan of The Association I read.

Dana K (host) 1:12:45 PM
Thanks, Casey! Work is bogus!
dan Cochrane 1:16:19 PM
Those background chords are Memories Can’t Wait, Talking Heads. Wild.
Casey 1:18:02 PM
Work shmerk
Michael McCool 1:19:11 PM
The Lucksmiths might fit in nicely to this vibe today
Dana K (host) 1:20:48 PM
Ooh I haven't listened to them in ages
dan Cochrane 1:21:39 PM
Let’s Active too I think.
Michael McCool 1:22:55 PM
I could so go for some Let’s Active right now…
Richard Lyons 1:23:35 PM

dan Cochrane 1:23:43 PM

Dana K (host) 1:26:30 PM

Michael McCool 1:27:00 PM

The better Courtney Love
yoni from kdu 2:25:52 PM
🥭🥭🥭
Dana K (host) 2:26:21 PM
I will assert that the other Courtney Love is pretty good
Dana K (host) 2:26:49 PM
I guess your preference depends on whether you're a sad girl or a mad girl
Michael McCool 2:28:56 PM
I oddly have always preferred anything Courtney Love to anything Kurt Cobain….
Dana K (host) 2:30:29 PM
Same, Michael.
Rob from Maryland 🦅 2:30:49 PM
Oh man, I step away out of earshot for 10 minutes and I miss my favorite Courtney Love (the band) song :-(
Dana K (host) 2:32:12 PM
Aw, shoot
Rob from Maryland 🦅 2:33:49 PM
