My new obsession is Minnesota Public Radio’s The Current. You can listen to audio streams at a high bit rate, and the station has had pretty excellent in-studio appearances, all of which are archived. (You can support the station here.)
But, you say, the archives aren’t in mp3 format. Well, this is why you come here, yes? I delved into the archives and plucked Rogue Wave’s appearance to convert to mp3. I’m eagerly anticipating Rogue Wave’s Dec. 15 show in Phoenix at Modified with sourceVictoria and Mazarin.
So consider this a preview before the preview next week, when I’ll have RW’s in-studio performance from WOXY and hopefully some new sourceVictoria tracks. (The Rogue Wave setlist includes two songs from the 10:1 EP.)
Rogue Wave, in studio at The Current, Nov. 23, 2005:
1. Publish My Love
2. Bird on a Wire
Just wanna give a shout-out to all the fine peeps who have linked to me the past couple of days (and slap me if I forgot ya): Dodge (who has a raunchy new contest for you), Chris at Gorilla vs. Bear, Muzzle of Bees, Chromewaves, Brooklyn Vegan, Largehearted Boy, FREE Williamsburg, The Test Pilot and the Perm and the Skullet. Go visit all of them.
>>By the way, Bears are 9-3. If there’s any proof to the cliche that defense wins games, it might be true with this team. Kyle Orton tossed for 68 yards, 0 TDs and 1 interception in Sunday’s win over the Packers at Soldier Field (finally!). I’m feeling pretty good about this team after reading what longtime Bears-killer Brett Favre had to say: “All the years I’ve played against them, I think defensively this is as well as I’ve seen them play. They’re just good.”
