When we were young, radio was a blessing, something one turned on to find a smile, a comforting shoulder, or just a nifty tune that made the world shine a bit brighter for a few minutes. Those days – very sadly – are largely past with the commercial radio programming of today, but we at Dirty Impound like to conjecture what a better radio world might sound like. Our fifth installment in this daydream offers Beatles covers, Richard Thompson tackling a Squeeze hit, fresh new talent right at the top, and more with ample nods to the 70s AM radio magnificence of our youth.
Dirty Impound turned two-years-old yesterday, and this week’s mix offers up 24 cuts we dig in honor of DI’s 24 months of existence. This is just a variation on our usual offering – good rockin’ with an emphasis on fun, deep album tracks, juxtapositions you won’t find anywhere else, choice cover tunes, and a firm belief in putting emerging talent shoulder-to-shoulder with established greats. We simply can’t get enough of sharing all the great things that hit our ears, and we thank you so much for hanging around our lil’ aural water cooler from time to time. We promise to keep the conversation lively and entertaining.
