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.

For the next few weeks, Poundings will focus on cool new music that’s come out in 2012, especially the stuff you aren’t hearing on the radio, seeing videos for on cable, or hearing about from the major tastemaker blogs/sites. Anyone who dumbly claims, “There’s no good music coming out,” is simply lazy. It’s out there and DI is ALWAYS sniffing out the truffles for you, kids.
