This week’s links/videos/items of interest based on topics discussed during last night’s radio show. As always, I’ve attempted to post them in the order they were played on-air.

Much of this show featured music by the late Alex Chilton.

Steve Scariano of Prisonshake shares some great stories about Chilton from over the years.

Paul Westerberg remembers his mentor in the New York Times.

You can download the Minutes single for free.

Read more about the Joel Phelps demos I was discussing.

This week’s links/videos/items of interest based on topics discussed during last night’s radio show. As always, I’ve attempted to post them in the order they were played on-air.

RIP Chilly B of Newcleus. Check out the Jam On Productions web site for an endless assortment of free downloads from the band, including four track rough mixes, refrences and 24 track rough mixes.

Also passing away this week, Larry Cassidy of Section 25 at the age of 56.

Speed The Plow is back, recruiting new members from within their families!

Don’t get donor fatigue! Help the people of Chile by sending a $10 text message to the Red Cross.

Good to read that Guru from Gang Starr is conscious and recovering from a heart attack on Tuesday.

Finally, the trailer for the Rye Coalition documentary that is still being worked on.
