#WorkdayWrapUp – “The” bands theme 9/4/13
#WorkdayWrapUp – “The” bands theme 9/4/13

An interesting take on which bands really are in fact “the” bands…

With or without the “the” seems acceptable when it comes to The Pixies, but the New York Times does use “the” in their great piece on the new, Kim Deal-less version of the band, so I’m going with that for tonight’s theme!

Oh, and speaking great pieces on classic “college rock” bands of the late 80s/early 90s (who are still going strong btw!), here’s one I saw today on Superchunk (catch ‘em in Cville at The Jefferson 9/23!)

 

Every Weekday at 6pm, we do a request hour with a different theme, started by the New Song of the Day.  Here’s what actually got played among the requests tonight…

Today in entertainment history: Nov. 24

FILE- This is a 1967 handout image from Parlophone of The British group, The Beatles,. From left, are: Ringo Starr, John Lennon, Paul McCartney; and George Harrison. The woman who as a child was the basis for the Beatles song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" is gravely ill. It was thought by many at the time that the psychedelic song from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band was a paean to LSD because of the initials in the title, but it was actually based on a drawing that John Lennon's young son Julian brought home from school. He told his father the drawing was of Lucy in the sky with diamonds. Lucy Vodden, now living in Surrey just outside of London _ drifted apart after schoolyard days, but they have gotten back in touch as Lennon has tried to help Vodden cope with Lupus, a life-threatening disease.
