WBAI-FM Program Highlight
Thump and Growl
The Best of Thump and Growl, Volume 5!
Tuesday, July 30, 2013 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
The Summer Fund Drive episode of Thump and Growl (complete with cliffhanger) is happening this Tuesday, where our gift to you for supporting WBAI will be The Best of Thump and Growl, Volume 5! New to the show, or just now recovering from a two-and-a-half-year long dialing finger injury? Don't fret. You'll be able to snag volumes 1 through 4, as well. Artists are daily being added to the line-up. Don't miss this one, mmmkay? 65% of life's mysteries will be answered on Tuesday, 10-noon.
UPDATE: I'm still tracking down musicians, many of whom are hiding like truffles. Participating artists so far include Red Baraat, The Coup, Kate Nash, Luna, Lilacs & Champagne, Maia Vidal, OK Star Orchestra, The Cannanes, Greg Brown, Kaleidoscope Jukebox, Ariya Astrobeat Arkestra, Braintheft, and my new favorite band Blue Gene, who wanted to know how the hell I found ‘em. Deets are still being worked out with some other big probablies.
PS: I call dibs on the future band name Big Probablies.
ANOTHER FURTHER DIFFERENT UPDATE: The Big Probablies have landed! Rather *I've* landed THEM. That Handsome Devil and Tricky have now joined the line-up. Y'gonna be there, right?
(NOTE: Mr. Kiernan's actual words were "I have no objection." But when I ran it through the Canadian-to-English translator, it came out as the glowing endorsement above.)
