On the first Sunday of every month, at 7 p.m., Eyedrum does a show on WREK (91.1 FM / www.wrek.org) that features nuggets from Eyedrum's archive of live performances.
After the show airs "live", you can listen to it via WREK's 7-day archive if you forget to tune in. Here are the direct links to Sunday Special streams: lo-fi or hi-fi. These streaming links from WREK expire 7 days after the show airs on the radio. (Note: this month we got a late start, so fast-forward about 20 minutes to get to the beginning of the show.)
But wait, there's more! We now have a podcast available, for those of you who have discovered podcasting. You can also just download the whole show (right click on "download") although be forewarned that the file is over 50 MB in size. These podcast and download links will NOT expire for months to come -- download and listen!
Great show this month! We started with Bangers and then Indigovox, two groups that will be playing at Eyedrum in the next month. Then we had a visit in the studio with the guys from the "Get Off The Road" / "Ride Or Die" bike-themed show happening at Eyedrum on August 15th. In between banter we played music by bands performing at that event, including Diamond Jackie, All The Saints, Zoroaster and Android Not Man. Then we played Parachutes, Psychedelic Horseshit, LaDonna Smith with Killick, an Open Improv excerpt, the Frode Gjerstad Trio (at ED again Aug 29th), Roger Ruzow and The 4th Ward Ensemble (Aug 30th), Marc Ribot and finally Francisco Lopez. During voice breaks you could also hear local electronic/noise artist Rajio playing in the background; with Chairlift, he's opening for Ariel Pink on Aug 4th.
