Filling in for Nico Leone on “Coin-Operated Radio,” Saturday night, ‘tween 6-8 p.m., on KDHX 88.1 fm. Will no doubt play a bit of Sonic Youth, in appreciation of the show noted below; plus some good slices of Idlewild, who’ll be in town next week at the Duck Room. If around a radio this weekend, do tune in.
Yesterday, we just happened to switch on the radio to Coin-Operated Radio while driving through East St. Louis after returning from a day of gadabouting in Belleville. Man, the scenery and the music seemed in synch at a few moments, especially when we hit the sunset while driving across the MLK Bridge. That John Vanderslice track was especially cool.
