"What the Fontaine?!: You never know what you'll hear next on this fun mix of tunes from across the decades and musical genres."
Today's episode of Sound Opinions focused on the Tony Visconti-produced T. Rex album Electric Warrior. It's been one of my favorite records since a friend turned me on to it back in the 80s. So I thought I'd pick a few songs off it, plus covers, other Visconti-produced songs, some Donovan (closer to early Marc Bolan material), and similar sounds (including Brian Eno). Tune in 9-11pm!
