Friday Clock Out presents:

Anika - "Change"

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Today, LJ will be hosting Friday Clock Out w/ Phil D. !

He’ll be spinning a few songs from the new Anika album, Change! Anika first debuted with her self titled solo album back in 2010. That album was produced by Geoff Barrow (from Portishead) and used Beak> as her backing band. And, as you might guess from those credentials, her debut sounded too cool for school. Or, like it existed in a world far cooler than our usual day-to-day. How does the new album sound? Let’s find out!

End Of The Century presents:

The Indestructible Beat Of Soweto
L.J. hosts End of the Century this week!
It feels like forever ago since he started doing his year snapshot thing , so it’s odd to think that he is only up to 1985! But, yeah, 1985 was an interesting year in music:
  • R.E.M., Tom Waits and Nick Cave were each in the middle of a brilliant string of albums;
  • Sting went solo and adult-contemporary AF;
  • Phil Collins “gifted the world” with “Sussudio”;
  • Prince actually gifts the world with “Raspberry Beret”;
  • Whitney Houston debuts with her self-titled hit factory;
  • David Bowie is the first major artist to have his entire back catalog converted to CD;
  • David Lee Roth leaves Van Halen;
  • Roger Waters announces that Pink Floyd is “a spent force, creatively”
  • Michael Jackson outbids Paul McCartney to purchase the publishing rights to The Beatles back catalog for $47MM;
  • And lest we forget, self-important virtue-signaling is finally given a theme song with “We are the World”.
So, let’s table 2021 for at least a couple hours on Saturday and visit 1985: A more innocent time when the current president was still just a real estate developer and said the following on 60 Minutes to Mike Wallace about the press: “I believe they make me out to be something more sinister than I really am.”

End Of The Century presents:

DAF - Alles ist Gut

When I hosted End of the Century four weeks ago, I focused on 1975 to 1981.   I’m picking up with 1981 and 1982 for this show.  I’m also slowing my roll a little; trying to choose a few songs from each year between 1975 and 1980 proved to be too ambitious.  So, I’m just looking at two years, and maybe dipping my toe into 1983.
