The Jam of the Day today is a song from the self-described “Spaghetti-Western cooked up in the ovens of Detroit,” Flint Eastwood. Be sure to see this band along with The Soil and the Sun and Kim Vi & the Siblings tomorrow night at Mac’s Bar for our 25th birthday show!
Today’s Jam of the Day comes from a band that we were fortunate enough to have do a Spartan Session with a few months back. More importantly, Kim Vi & The Siblings will be playing at our birthday show at Mac’s Bar on Thursday, February 20th! We’ll see you there!
As our 25th birthday approaches, we at the station have been asking ourselves, “What was playing on the mainstream airwaves in the weeks leading up to our debut in 1989?” After 10 minutes of fierce googling, we found the songs most frequent on the frequencies back 25 Februaries ago. Be warned; we never said it would be pretty (except for maybe in the case of Duran Duran).
Finally able to be heard from the radio, Sit or Spin was fun and sassy tonight. Thanks to all the callers, tweeters and listeners!
