October’s Happiness




So, October and I have been in a relationship for about a week now, and I couldn't be happier!

You'll remember I won her affections by making her this mixtape last week  (never underestimate the power of a truly well made mixtape!)

Tonight we'll continue our love affair by sharing a bunch of new music she's turned me onto, and you know what they say about sharing, don't you?

Ahhh love... ain't it grand?

press "PLAY" then kiss me you fool!

POP Goes The Empire



NPR did a story this week on the 20th anniversary of "Britpop", marking the beginning of the era as Sept. 8, 1993 when Suede took home the Mercury Music Prize, Britain and Ireland's "album of the year" award, for its self-titled debut.
While a valid argument could indeed be made for that, on tonight's Pop Goes The World, I'll do my own "Britpop" celebration playing some of my favorite Britpop tracks of the era, taking it back even a few years earlier and extending it to see who's currently picked up the torch.
