is an excellent program on the legendary free-form radio station WFMU
, showcasing vintage radio. Highlights include the deeply blasphemous Bob Lassiter, the "Paul is Dead" broadcast, and Cleveland DJ Murray "It's FRIIIIDAYYYY!" Saul.

Head Back to Mono
in 32k at the rineke.net records archive
, where a rather consistent curator has digitized a goody chunk of his record collection. It's posted in more-or-less every iteration imaginable. Observe the linked scans
(1 mb page, careful!) of the covers (also in multiple resolutions up to full-size). Note the records themselves
, in sleeve or out
, depending. Most especially, savor the clean, low-res mono mp3s that cry out to be played through the dashboard speakers of a 1967 Dodge Dart
Bonus Big Beat Bonanza:
The site's author is also behind the similarly detailed
archive of shows by ex-WFMU dj The Hound
, from 1987 through 1995, heavy on the rare regional sides
beloved of certain of my pals down New Orleans way.
Last, but not least, rineke.net hosts the adventures of a platoon of Tux clones
, sealing my geek admiration for the overseer of the site. There's more
, of course. My propeller beanie's off to you, sir, and long may you wave, or particle, as is your choice and preference.
(Permission was sought and granted to post this, as I feard for the site's bandwidth. Have at it, Mefites!

Yo La Tengo take your requests
right now live on WFMU (various streams are here
). Best pledge drive gimmick going: right now they're doing some T-Rex. A $60 pledge gets the band to play your selection.
