IDHAS Audio Extravaganza Special - Power Pop Pop Pop Part 1
Apologies for the delays in getting the next two Audio Extravaganzas to you. These have been delayed due to technical issues during the mixing. We'll probably go straight into the 2 part Best Of 2019 Volumes, once they are with you all.
In the meantime, here's something that the Power Pop fans amongst you will enjoy. Those who follow the scene may recognise the targets. My own opinion is that Power Pop in 2019 has been very much like this, so it's a sort of full circle.
Tom Scharpling and Jon Wurster are in fine form on WFMU's The Best Show. This was originally broadcast on 22 May 2007. Most Power Pop fans will know, or make up their own mind about the targets. I can tell you from my experience, that in 2019, the scene is still very much like this.
Robbie Rist, a man even more hilarious than me, no there is someone honest, wrote a nice piece about the show in the current Big Stir Magazine. I listened again tonight and was laughing out loud. It is a splendid 26 minute listen.
Hopefully this will put you listeners on until the Volume 86 of the Audio Extravaganza is ready for your discerning ears You can listen by going to the IDHAS Mixcloud page following the link below or going to the foot of this post and clicking on the embedded show.
