Heard a great set of FUV last week. It was an all listener request show and was awesome.
  Sat. 12/7/13 1:06pm Queens L. Bow:

Thanks for this interview....didn't hear it all but will check it later online. Given his past, it's great that Lowe has survived, thrived & gone on to make great music (as different as it is from his '70-80s output). But why all the snark at FUV? (esp. from Scott). If you made a Venn diagram of all the "alternative" (i.e. non-top 40) artists that are played on both stations there'd be a lot of overlap.
