Famous Firsts #Happens On Monday

April 22nd, 2024|

Happy Monday! Hope you had an amazin’ weekend! We kickoff the first day of the week with Dave Levora from KQCJ (Planet 93.9)/Quad Cities sharing Famous Firsts. Don’t miss the funny dead air ending.

Alternative programmers are buzzing about the new Pearl Jam single “Wreckage.” It’s the #1 Most Picked Song on New Music Discovery Picks leading into impact this week.

S.O.B. Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats has announced a new album. I have the details posted on Music Info

Last Friday, Brigitte Calls Me Baby played a KNRK (94/7)/Portland “94/7 Session” and Ella Red was at KTCL (Channel 93.3)/Denver for a “Garage Session.” Ella also made a visit to KRXP (X1039)/Colorado Springs. Check out the smiles on your radio and records Photos page.

ARTIST Glass Animals
SONG “Creatures In Heaven”
LABEL Republic

Glass Animals lead singer David Bayley says, “It’s about a moment in time, be it a split second or a year or whatever, having the capacity to be enormously formative and life-changing. Even if it is over. Or if it doesn’t go as planned. Or if it dies too soon. It is still fucking beautiful. The love and care and the feeling in that moment lives forever. It never really dies. If that’s how you choose to see it.”
