Today’s show has 6 pairings of Television or Tom Verlaine tracks with suitable companions, then a bunch of songs his stuff makes me think of. I did not play Felt, who may be the most Television-like band, but I will have them covered in weeks to come and I wanted to make lass obvious parallels. The tracks that have thrilled me and stuck in my head the most are ‘Penetration’ and it’s New Order pairing (both just incredible), and the TV21 / Psychedelic Furs pairing. I also love the dB’s track ‘I Lie’.
