When Roger Shepherd conceived his record label Flying Nun in the backroom of a Christchurch, New Zealand record store in the early '80's, he gave birth to one of the most fertile and influential imprints in the independent music world.

The label was sold off in 1990, but returned to its independent self in 2009, and continues to create a platform for New Zealand's music scene. Recently, Shepherd authored his memoir, In Love With These Times, out on Harper-Collins. He stops by Brian's show today with Hamish Kilgour of The Clean in tow for a retrospective on the great Flying Nun, with plenty of rarely-heard live recordings of the label's roster, collected by Brian to complement their visit.

This hand-clapping, finger-snapping, toe-tapping, hip-shaking, body-quaking, back-breaking, bona fide, certified, Southern fried, energetic, authentic, and Northern Hemisphere–centric (sorry, Australia and New Zealand) tradition of airing nothing but the cream of soul 45s on or near the estival solstice (and six months later to celebrate the hibernal solstice) has endured for almost 25 years, with only the abuse of a reverb unit as collateral damage. Enjoy the aural pleasures of two middle-aged guys who don't have fathers anymore and never had children celebrating the only family they've ever really loved (sorry, wife and girlfriend) — the family of soul!

Will Gaylord and Matt play "Color Him Father," by the Winstons? Tune in to the Summer Soul-stice, or read further to learn that the answer is no.

Which is an exciting thing to me.” Hear her perform live on Todd-O-Phonic Todd's show and witness the magic June 16th at The Asbury Park Brewery and June 17th at Union Pool.

Joined by Jason Shelton on clarinet and electronics, the band were kind enough to come down to the WFMU studios and record a set for Spin Age Blasters.

Lamb’s breathy vocals walk the edge between warning and threat, the music shadowing close behind. Tune in to Spin Age Blasters at 3 AM on Sunday, June 4th to hear Parlor Walls before they head out to the West Coast for a tour.

Saturday, May 20th, 2017, 3pm - 6pm
Todd-o-phonic Todd's show
The Big Combo Series mounts a comeback as three bands appear on the Todd-O-Phonic Todd Show:

So What are a brand spanking new glam and high energy power pop band from the Bay Area. Their first full-length on Just Add Water is an explosion of hooks and melodies. Heavily influenced by The Equals, it is fitting that they are Equals' vocalist Derv Gordon's backing band for his shows at Monty Hall on Friday 5/19 and Baby's All Right Saturday 5/20. They will also be doing their own set each night.

In their four star review of her eponymous debut, Record Collector says Holly Macve is like "an ethereal offspring of Nick Cave blessed with the stark musical backdrop of Johnny Cash's American series, 21 year-old Macve turns country music on its head." Check out her new album on Becca Union and see her perform at Rough Trade on May 17th.

RMBLR is the rambunctious brain-child of former Dino's Boys frontman Chase Tail. Beer soaked and gin fueled rock'n'roll is what you would expect and what you get and you'll be damn happy about that. These good ole Southern Boys have a sizzling 7" EP on Fat Possum and will be playing with So What, Daddy Long Legs and Derv Gordon at Baby's All Right on Saturday 5/20.

"Anything Could Happen," the recent album by Bash & Pop is one of 2017's best albums and rivals front man Tommy Stinson's work with The Replacements. Look forward to hearing songs from this great release performed live and perhaps some stories of rock'n'roll debauchery. Bash & Pop perform at The Bell House on May 18th.

Rising from the ashes of Hector's Pets comes one of the rowdiest bands on the Brooklyn scene. Bob Mann and Rolling Thunder's debut cassette, "Champagne Taste On A Beer Budget" displays these righteous dudes in all their rock'n'roll glory. Find out for yourself at Union Pool later the very same evening when the boys play The Real Cool Time Festival.

Tuesday, May 16th, 2017, 7pm - 8pm
Morricone Island with Devon E. Levins
True soundtrack legend Alessandro Alessandroni left us on March 26th in Rome at 92. The prolific Italian multi-instrumentalist, composer and leader of the I Cantori Moderni rose to fame with his signature guitar and whistle on the Leone/Morricone spaghetti western classics A Fistful of Dollars, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and Once Upon a Time in the West. His I Cantori Moderni's wordless vocals would become synonymous with the 60s/70s Italian sound. While his most enduring impact on pop culture might be his and wife Julia De Mutiis' vocals on Piero Umiliani's "Mah Na Mah Na," Alessandroni had even more impact on the avant-garde as a leading figure of the Italian library movement and composing over 50 soundtracks on his own in addition to collaborations with Morricone, Umiliani, De Masi, Macchi, Trovaioli, Brugnolini and Braen Machine. Devon will re-broadcast his discussion with Alessandroni from February 2014.
