Great show again. Some really Timeless show. YOu could have thrown in a Guilty Pleasure with the Grateful Dead. Maybe the Music Never Stopped.

Thank YOU again, Thomas! You to be 100% honest, The Grateful Dead is somewhat of a guilty pleasure of mine but I might be a little too guilty to play them on the show. Plus I think Pirate Cat Radio might literally explode if they ever went out on the airwaves. But I'm glad to know that there is at least one other person who likes post-punk and the Dead.

Seems hyprocritcal the grateful dead got much of the start at house parties and pirate radio in the bay area.

I'm gonna give you new show a listen tomorrow. I saw this on you tube though today. The history of Amen break.

I know the youtube video you're talking about. A really interesting little story. A few seconds off an obscure B-side manages to change music.
