Labor of Love with Katie Gentile

Hear this show now:  Pop‑up player! | Add or read comments

Rob Weisberg and Katie Gentile (Rob's sidekick, psychologist, academic, author, and violinist in the band Special Pillow) play "radio ping-pong", alternating tracks: Rob went first, with Yol Aularong:; then Katie selected a track by Able Tasmens, then Rob played Manu Chao and so on.

This was the seventh annual installment of Labor of Love - and still no fisticuffs! Although there's a fair bit of aggression in the music: The theme this year is rock and rock hybrids from around the world.

Hey Rob -- Yer really blowing my mind tonight with some of these rock things, Spanish Tide by Family has always been a personal favorite. Ed Kuepper clinched the deal. Great flow all along too, thanks WJ

Man, this is a good show! Hats off to Katie too for her picks. I'll be going to the archives for this one.

Wotta show! The back and forth was great. Never in my life have I liked a song so much on the first hearing as I did "Sour Queen." Katie should have her own show - she could be the heir to great Hova!
