Press Record and Play

May 28, 2022 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Music

With Dan Aloi

A curated mixtape of covers, rarities, shoulda-been-hits, audio oddities, and local content, often on a theme.

Let's Get to the Good Part

For the holiday weekend: Power pop of varying stripes; a brand new Wilco album; a couple 'Circles' leftovers from last week; local band The Moles; and songs about baseball and other/darker/timely themes: contrarianism; fuel prices, rainforest destruction; religion and guns; corporate downsizing and abortion. (...enjoyable songs, nonetheless)
