Muerte a Lou Dobbs 45 RPM Bilingual Love Battle with Katie Gentile

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments

Rob fulfills the stationwide 7" imperative by playing 45 rpm bilingual (English / Español) radio ping-pong with his sidekick Katie Gentile. Katie is now an academic, author, and violinist for indie psyche-pop band The Special Pillow. But her bountiful vintage indie rock 7" collection was gathered primarily during her youthful years in the indie-rock label biz and at the great college freeform station WCBN (from whence, not too coincidentally, Rob also sprouted).

The spelling of this title is a little unclear: This pressing of the single by Frankie Dante and his politically charged band is labeled "Venceremos" but the song is listed elsewhere as "Venceramos" - and on this archival video clip shot at the Central Park bandshell in 1972 you can hear the song introduced as "Venceramos."

I'm a work-a-day commenter. Nikki Sudden once told a friend of mine, if you can't play your songs on acoustic guitar, their not really songs.

During a summer being entertained by the man, one of his gems for me was not to change your leather pants when you're on a roll.
  Sat. 10/24/09 8:52pm dc pat:

Katie: exactly.

Wait a minute, do I actually like this Teenage Fanclub tune? Naaahh, can't be...

Hi from the Fee and me. Always love the point-counterpoint shows. "Katie, you ignorant _!" "Rob, you misguided _!" Don't change the leather pants - you're on a roll.
