Short Description: 
Back To The Egg's sixth annual Year-End special featuring a top ten albums list and some fave songs

It is time! It only happens once a year, and contains more talking than an entire year of Back To The Eggs put together. We're talking about the SIXTH ANNUAL Back To The Egg Year-End Special. Join Crackity Jones and guest host Michael Keefe (fellow music obsessive and Media Buyer at Annie Bloom's Books in the heart of Multnomah Village) as they wax philosophical about their Top Ten favorite albums of the year, all the while hoping that there'll be a bit of time left over in the three hour show for a BONUS ROUND in which they'll share some of the songs of 2013 that they could not get enough of. Fellow KBOO DJ Devin LaCroix once pronounced this annual year-end special one of his favorite KBOO events. Thanks, Devin, and we hope you'll ALL tune in!

Membership drive special: Australian band The Church
Back To The Egg presents a KBOO membership drive special devoted to Australian 80's band The Church. Within just a couple of albums they went from psychedelic pop to something much darker, perfectly suited for late-night KBOO radio. Join host Crackity Jones for a chronological journey through the Church's discography, including solo albums (Steve Kilbey and Marty Willson-Piper, mostly) and side projects such as Hex and Jack Frost (featuring Grant McLennan of The Go-Betweens).

Taking a cue from the show that precedes mine, I brought in an old mixtape to play on my show this morning.

Titled "Live Studio Audience", the tape consists of various songs culled from audience recordings I made of various concerts I attended in the mid-90's when I was living in upstate New York.

For me it was an audio travelogue of sorts....lots of road trips to cool cities that I was visiting for the first time...Providence, Boston, Ottawa, Ithaca, Montreal.....for YOU I hope it was entertaining in some way, at least to hear what was going on musically in 1994-1995.

Thanks as always for staying up with me!

Midnight Mixtape was in pure MONO this morning, playing alot of the Beatles catalogue, I thought I would continue the theme a bit with some covers and a George Harrison tune off Magical Mystery Tour.

Hi all -

I know summer’s not quite over, but for me it really is. I’ll be gone next week for the last road trip of the season, and then the following week, school starts and we all settle into a routine. Part of me is looking forward to it, but the other half will miss sleeping in late, basking in the sunshine, and general merriment. With all that in mind, I wanted to do something different on the show to celebrate. Nothing says summer like a July concert at Stubbs BBQ in Austin, TX…courtesy of your favorite band SPOON!

Kid Koala will be appearing at Doug Fir next week, so I thought I'd end things with his debut mixtape, Scratchcratchratchatch. Released in 1996 on Ninja Tune.

Fun show! Matt Keating (songwriter from NYC) was my co-host, and brought alot of great and interesting songs to the mix.

He also brought his guitar in and played the following songs live during the course of the show:

"Jacksonville" -- can be found on the album Tilt-A-Whirl

"Louisiana" -- can be found on last year's album Quixotic

"Daddy's On The Roof" -- off this year's Between Customers

"Amplifier" -- cover of a dB's song

"Better Than That" -- off the new album etween Customers.

In between we featured some musical tributes to some artists that have passed away recently: Duane Jarvis (guitarist from here in Portland), Les Paul (no introduction needed), and producer wunderkind Jim Dickinson.

Thanks very much to Matt Keating for coming down, co-hosting, and making it an enjoyable show!


Johnny Indovina from Human Drama's new disc

I am hoping you'll add a track from the new disc by Johnny Indovina & Sound of the Blue Heart; I think it's a good fit for the show (I'm here in Portland).

Should I send you the cd?

Here's the links to sample some of the tracks:

Hope to hear from you soon,
