Kat - I agree. I do some listening to KEXP - last year they had a week dedicated to independent radio histories around the country. It was heaven.

Got to see a screening at The Middle East. Fantastic doc. Made this masshole proud. First radio gig was as a prod intern at 'BCN even tho' I was more of FNX/MBR/ZBc/ERS listener at that point.But 'BCN was the biggest mattress.Amazing history. Definitely will try to catch Monty Hall screening.

@kat in Chicago same here about radio
  9:50pm roni:

love the station...support the station...but shocked no one has done a Cpt Beefheart tribute...it's his birthday...and he is the biggest influence to a radio station of your stature...is there someone out there who identifies with this...I really care...
  9:50pm Mike Sin:

More great insightful programming from EFD!

Do the Flamin' Groovies fit the BCN format? Because I keep hearing them in these tunes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm efd:

I don't have any first-hand memories of hearing them on BCN but I'd think they got airplay there
