This week: recent addition to the BAS family Anna Kunz talks to indie rock legend Lou Barlow (Dinosaur Jr., Folk Implosion, Sebadoh, Sentridoh, and his own solo work) about the creative process, his music, and other exciting stuff. Lou recently released a spectacular new album out Goodnight Unknown. Richard will kick himself for a long time that he wasn’t there for this interview. Bad at Sports congratulates the Barlow family on the addition of a recent bundle of joy! The baby thing is catching kids, watch out.

On Sept. 9, 2009 I experienced something that I still am having trouble believing happened to me. I came into the possession of a cassette tape containing a Beatles album that was never released. I dont expect you to believe what happened to me, I sure wouldn’t, but thats why I grabbed the tape as proof that my experience was real.

But I know someone will complain so in the end just listen to the best mix album since the Grey Album by Danger Mouse. Check it out, share it while you can cause like the Grey Album this will be on the ghost net in short order al a Grey Tuesday.

Only 1 more day before the switch and at this point we all are done working really. It’s almost Halloween (spelled it right Anna Maria Cerniglia thanks : ) and lets get real many of us are already out downing our second Pabst in anticipation for Saturday. So have a great weekend, see everyone Sunday with a fresh new show among other things. Here is a great music video of David Byrne & BPA’s “Toe Jam” directed by Keith Schofield that is definitely not safe for work [NSFW] but hopefully will get you amped up for a great weekend.

Have fun!
