Cristy hostesses two hours of women in music with a punk edge, featuring the story of Nico.

Nico. Just Nico.

Nico. Just Nico.


Our work with Anderson doing a show dedicated to the LA Paisley Underground scene, featuring David Roback, Hope Sandoval, and Kendra Smith, is posted here.

Know of any songs that preach ways to live and think (“You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” “If You Love Somebody, Set Them Free”)? We’re looking for songs for a radio show called The Great Philosophers. Suggestions are welcome, and pretentious songs are okay if not unavoidable… Well, here’s what we came up with: a heavy, thoughtful MP3.

And always remember—wise man sing:

one thing leads to another

you can’t always get what you want

if you love somebody, set them free

people will always be tempted to wipe their feet on anything with welcome written on it

life’s like a jigsaw: you get the straight bits, but there’s something missing in the middle; life’s like a firework: you’re only lit once, and you must stand and radiate correctly

arrive without traveling, see all without looking




Sunday, while I attended the Vintage Vinyl sale in search of $1 AC/DC LPs, Cristy took over our radio show and spun songs about animals. Except for the opening track, we decided that songs about dogs and cats, as well as songs about insects, would each merit a separate, future show. But mammals, birds, fish, and arachnids are all represented here.

This Saturday, guest host Anderson will be offering “Nighttime Sunshine”, an exploration of one thread of L.A.’s Paisley Underground scene; the evolution and influence of David Roback and Kendra Smith. At the ungodly hour of 8-9 AM ILLINOIS TIME on, or 90.1 FM for those lucky enough to live in the coolest town in the world.

The original animal.

The original animal.

A pledge drive show during which we claim we can play any requested song, and give away a copy of Ripped, by Greg Kot. Success..?

Well, the station is still on the air.

Just try it!
