FFFoxy Podcast #80

Summer has definitely arrived around these parts since the last show and, no, it’s not a dry heat. I was sweatin’ it out in the studio amongst the heat-radiating equipment assembling this latest episode, which is a fairly jammed packed show of mostly newer releases, some arriving within the last week in fact. Of these…

Summer is fast approaching and plenty of cool things are happening in and around the FFF orbit. For starters, lots of great new music keeps arriving each week. The latest LP from The Bibs has been a recent favorite, not to mention the latest archival titles from Fraser & DeBolt and Sun Ra on the…

Once again, I’ve fallen a bit behind on posting our weekly playlists to this site. Oh well, I’m guessing no one is losing sleep over such minor details anyways. This post, however, takes you through the past couple of months of activity that included discussion of Carl’s Iggy Pop live outing, the sad passing of…

FFFoxy Podcast #78

The smoke from the Canadian wildfires found its way down to southern Minnesota this weekend, so this episode comes to you with itchy eyes and the dank smell of a smoldering early morning campfire. But, I’m excited about all of the music featured on this installment, so that seemed to make up for the lingering…

FFFoxy Podcast #77

It’s been a rather interesting, slightly intense, time around these parts since the last show with, of course, the sad passing of a Minnesota music legend in Prince this week, and then KMSU being a fairly active place with its annual Spring Pledge Drive going on. On top of that, I have also been working…

FFFoxy Podcast #76

I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather over the past few days, so hopefully the talk breaks don’t sound even more scatterbrained than usual on this episode. I wanted to keep things on track with the podcast, though, this time focusing mostly on a bunch of newer music that has arrived in the past…

FFFreakout #501-505

So, here’s what has been happening on the weekly Free Form Freakout show for the past month or so. In that time we’ve taking in another great Wolf Eyes gig, won an insanely packaged box set at a terrific local arts benefit, marked the sad passing of Beatle’s producer George Martin and Dead Moon drummer…
