Beard Radio & The Kosmiche Kid 7.4.08

Raymond Scott

No Age

On tonight's show I was joined by Beard magazine and Texas' (the place, not the rubbish band) own Leah Jaques. And Neil and their little boy Lucas also made a brief, and very sweet, appearance. Lucas is the Kosmiche Kid! He was dancing away to Neu and La Dusseldorf, which we played in tribute to the late, great Klaus Dinger. We also brought you new stuff from No Age, Silver Jews and Times New Viking. Throw in some vintage electronics from Raymond Scott and Toshi Ichiyanagi, Kiwi pop from the Flying Nun stable, Sufi devotional music, funky Nigerian stuff and you have one of our best shows so far.
