On The Radio: Brothers on Whatever

Oops- someone gave me a mic & asked my opinions...


On The Radio & Best of 2012

Thanks, Tim Rakel & KDHX. The next DJ to spin Northside Refugees on the air will be Ryan Mifflin, who hosts Dirty Roots Radio, Thursdays from 8-10 pm on 89.5 WGRN FM, Greenville, IL. If you happen to not be in the Greenville area, you can stream it live on the web. Here's a link:


Mr. Mifflin also included me on his Best Music of 2012 listing, under the Best of St. Louis section. I'm sure few would agree with you, Ryan, but I'm embarrassingly appreciative. 5000, buddy. Maybe a couple more. Ahem. here's a link:

MAJOR NEWS (relatively speaking, of couse...)

So here's a piece of news fr the closet music lover in you: The new album will be mixed by superstar engineer Larry Crane from Jackpot! Recording (M. Ward, Elliot Smith, Jenny Lewis, Sleater-Kinney, Stephen Malkmus, Cat Power, etc., etc...). I've heard the mixes of the first 3 tracks- the man knows his business. Album due out next year. Eyes wide open, kids. Happy Sunday.
