Cristy and I have some new writing at Smile Politely, including a review of Robyn Hitchcock’s new album and his recent performance in Chicago, a tribute to a college radio station, and a review of the Smoking Popes show.

A few episodes of Rock Geek FM have come and gone since my last posting here – string sections, Joe Boyd, songs with brass – but I wanted to post the show we did with Rick Halberg on April 28: Psychedelic Soul

This Saturday Cristy and I have a DUEL. That is right. We are in disagreement over which one of us graduated from high school in a better year for rock.

1987 vs. 1996 pt. 1 / 1987 vs. 1996 pt. 2

Who won?

Cope Cumpston joins Cristy to spin music by women and discuss two lives’ journey in two hours time.

A wonderful dialog across generations set to a great soundtrack.
