04 MARCH 1986

Another journey to the past glory of '80s community radio, split into two parts. The first ninety minutes are  a hodgepodge of world music, funk, psych, dub, acid rock and an absolutely slamming Bill Haley track, all hosted by Pat Wright....and then shit gets real good. I like DEVO as much as the next guy (read: not nearly as much as Jon Kortland), this forty five minute special had me mesmerized. Wild primitive demos and live freakouts, like a fan club celebration on air thirty seven years ago today. There's something extra rad about hearing the early sounds exalted while their commercial success was still fresh in listeners' minds. True and actual freaks with no apparent through line...and that's why radio rules.
