A Life By The Sea, Mr. Todd

Backpacks returns this week with another hour of music. It's Summer week here at WMBR and I already did my Dirty Surf Special back in June.

Anyways, I'm not even sure how to define this week's playlist. Tracks from David Bowie/NIN, Agent Side Grinder, S U R V I V E, Helium, Frank (Just Frank) and more.

Oh, and the song of the week? This absolute GEM from Thomas Dolby:

It's A Heat Wave

I've been hiding inside all day making this sick playlist for tonight's Backpacks & Magazines. Tune in 10-11pm. Actually, tune in way before that because the whole WMBR Saturday line up is fantastic.
This week I'll be playing tracks from HTRK, The KVB, King Krule, Static Daydream and more.

And if you're in the area, you can listen on your actual radio. Just tune it all the way left, 88.1FM Cambridge.

Summer Vibes

It's high summer so I went with a playlist that makes me feel like putting on the shortest of denim cut-offs, grabbing some friends and hanging out in the backyard. Or sitting indoors and watching 80s comedies about summer camp.

Extended Play

Like all good 80s movies, MaGoGo has trusted me with the keys to his house so the only appropriate thing to do is have a party, right?

This Saturday I will be filling in for The Show Show and the extended playlist is dedicated to the weekend, long may it live. Tune in 8-11pm for tracks from New Fast Automatic Daffodils, Leftfield, Underworld, Anoraak, College, The Charlatans, Stereo MC's, and more.  It will certainly not be boring, I just hope I can do The Show Show some justice.

Added bonus, I uncovered a long lost favorite from my high school days.
