Bicycles & College Radio in Cleveland

Riding the trails and filling the air waves.

Vinyl is not just a maintenance free siding option.

After a few years away from a radio mic, outside of  a few times as a sub every now and then, I will be returning to the airways.   Starting next week, every Wednesday from 11:30AM to 12Noon on FM-91.1 WRUW I will be spinning nothing but vinyl.   The show is called ‘Vinyl is not just a maintenance free siding option.’

I am going to try to track down as much material as I can that has never been released on CD or in another digital form.  Something that will be getting a spin or two during an early show will be a few tracks from The Dinner Ladies ‘These Knees Have Seen the World’.  I played it a whole bunch when I had a show back in the late 80’s early 90’s while going to school at Cleveland State University (FM-89.3 WCSB).   WRUW does not have it in their collection, but my wife tracked it down for me a few years ago, and it is sitting safely in my basement.

So what songs or bands do you love, but have never found in a ‘modern’ media format?

The Dinner Ladies wonderful album that has never had a digital release.

    “Don’t Follow Me, I’m Lost, Too” by Pearl E. Gates. My favorite tunes are “Fujiyama Mama” and “Cowboys & Indians.”

    First thing to try to track down. I remember seeing the album cover at some point, somewhere. The question is, was that recently at WRUW, or long ago at WCSB? Interesting that she was once married to Clash member Paul Simonon .
