Hey Baby, it's the 4th of July. So said Mr. Dave Alvin. It was fun smearing the airwaves with tunes on this holiday edition of Freewheelin'. And, it was great to hear from so many people who don't usually get to listen to the show live due to work, school, or other commitments. Ah, holidays, I love the way they bring people together.
It’s “High Fidelity” tonight on the Pop Shop, as Liberty Finch and DJ Izzy welcome guest Dave Biljan—owner of the Flip Side/Crackpot Records—with a surprise appearance by John Eller. Music, stories and a mini recap of the Milwaukee road trip to see the Beach Boys 50th anniversary reunion tour.
