I'm glad the selections resonated with you, Gary. And thanks for the link to Chris Dedrick's blog. Some other Free Design selections can be heard on these previous shows: http://tinyurl.com/3yohlr9 ; http://tinyurl.com/2wvadew ; http://tinyurl.com/2uveku7 And their albums can be purchased and downloaded through the Light in the Attic Records website: http://lightintheattic.net/artists/9-the-free-design
Glad you dug that Lieber & Stoller tune -- I haven't been able to get it out of my head for the past week, myself. Thanks for dropping by, Gary!
Thanks for your comment, Michael! Sorry I missed last week.

Well, I'd have to say that "Alfie" is one of the most beautiful songs ever written! It's one of a handful of songs that get me choked up every time I hear them. I didn't know it was Hal's favorite, but I'm not surprised. Happy upcoming birthdays, Burt and Hal!
L.V. definitely bears repeating!
OK then, Headz IS Ready!

"The KKK Took My Baby Away" is classic Ramones -- girl-group-style pop song structure, bizarre, funny, slightly disturbing lyrics, power chords, and Joey's fake British accent. And, yeah, "Pleasant Dreams" is a great album, but I don't have it, hence the comp. (Fave later Ramones song: "Somebody Put Something in My Drink," from "Animal Boy.") -- Charlie
Hello Michael -- Youre very welcome! Glad I can do it. -- Charlie
Great show, mon! Love that Gal Costa track (and her, ahem, 'outfit'). As you were... --Chazaloo

Yes! They were very cool, at least as cool as that other duo that got their own TV series. And many other songs have benefited from the Nino and April treatment. (A bunch of great ones are on that comp, now out of print, if you can track it down.) If only they had recorded something by Wittgenstein... -- charlie
You're welcome, R -- glad I could help.

Thanks for your support, Wendy! I've got a few ideas up my sleeve (?) that I hope to foist on the public sometime soon.
