oooh, this is good. Unexpected range of folks being interviewed here: Pete Best, Burt Bacharach, Grace Slick (and check out that photo: never woulda recognized her!)... Thanks for the link, bookmarked for sure.

The Pete Best interview is pretty interesting, too, just listening to that right now.

OK, just one more thing: the Pete Best interview ends with a vintage Beatles instrumental "Cry For a Shadow" (which I'd never heard before). Ol' Pete's bangin' the tubs, and there's more lead guitar than you ever heard in a Beatles song! Fabulous!

KGSR is really one of the best stations around. They really catch on to what the 'Austin' thing is, musically.

If you ever get a chance to see Gomez live, go.

Don't forget KEXP's extensive list of in-studio performances either.

I second the Gomez comment. I loves me some Gomez.
