Spinning 78 RPM all inspired by Amanda Petrusich's new book, Don't Buy or Sell at Any Price (all about the wild world of 78 record collecting) and the amazing 78 collection of Chris King (that's him down there). All of them made appearances at a Steady Sounds in-store, this past weekend. Enjoy. Otto

I'm in the studio with Trusty Sidekick Lando tonight and we're settling (well not really) the classic "guy talk" debate - who is the greatest American band. Well this is no scholarly affair - just lots of great tunes and some heated conversation. Keep it tuned here.

Tonight's Lost Music Saloon pays tribute to the first men on the moon! Apollo 11 landed on the Moon 45 years ago (as of yesterday). I was 13 years old then and still remember it well. So I'll be airing songs about the Moon, the Apollo 11 astronauts, and all things lunar.
I'm also giving away a pair of tickets to go see one of my fave bands - - the Old 97's! They're playing tomorrow night at The National right here in Richmond. Stay tuned for the ticket giveaway near the end of my show tonight!
