So I hear some people over on Sit or Spin were ripping on Atoms for Peace (the supergroup composed of Thom Yorke from Radiohead, Flea from the Chili Peppers, and other fine musicians). That just won’t do. I had the joy of being introduced to their new single Default by a listener a few weeks ago, and that’s some good stuff. I think I’ve gotta play some Radiohead or something tonight to bring balance back into the universe. If you have something good in mind, go ahead and give me a call on our request line, 517-884-8989.
