An all-vinyl power pop show, everything fitting together neatly, though the last 3 songs in the second hour break the mold a bit, but somehow suggested themselves as I was recording this. I learned interesting stuff about Hollywood Stars (they shared a split 7″ with The Kinks) and Plastic Bertrand while recording this show. The Sweet track is a strong 2021 studio recording from a pandemic inspired LP. The Adverts track had been going through my head for weeks, glad to put it out in the open here. The Jordan Jones, KRGA, Brett Smiley trio that closes the first hour is ‘just right’, while bands to discover in this show are Beachheads, The Trend, Modernettes, The Stiffs, The Lloyds, and The Demons.
