Melting Pot

Solid show this week, front loaded with new music, including new Gaslamp Killer (with Adrian Younge & MRR!), JJ Doom, The xx, Menahan Street Band and more. In the second hour we have an interview with Matt Sullivan of Light In The Attic records, one of my favorite reissue labels and a strong contender for label of the year. We discuss how the label started and some of the music from the first 10 years, including a couple of tracks recorded as part of their anniversary celebration (separate post to follow). Gave away a lot of tickets this week and I’ll giving away even more next week due to special programming on Sept. 30th (A Tribute to the Dirty Three) and the upcoming fundraiser, a few will end up here on the blog too, so keep an eye and ear out for it and spread the word.
