TVD Radar: The Podcast with Evan Toth, Episode 8: Music Monday

Welcome to the first all music episode of Radar which you can listen to right here at The Vinyl District, but also on WFDU, 89.1 FM on your actual radio in New York City! While Radar strives to bring you interviews with current movers and shakers in the entertainment industry, we’d like to also have an opportunity to share all of the great new music that is released every week. While there is much new music to be heard, there are also heaps of reissues and re-releases that we’d like to share as well. Of course, we’ll play you the vinyl copy whenever possible.

For instance, on this week’s episode, you’ll enjoy some reissues from Prince, The Supremes, Richard and Linda Thompson, Lou Reed and more, but we’ll also hear brand new music from Bob Mould, Bette Smith, Sad13 and Joe Wong. We also get to some rarities, Omnivore will reissue two albums by Van Duren who was a contemporary of Big Star in the 1970s Memphis scene. We’ll also take Plantasia out for a spin: you’ve certainly seen the iconic album cover if you’re a record collector, but have you ever really listened? Brooklyn’s Sacred Bones is reissuing this very difficult to find album. It’s scarcity lies in the fact that when it was originally released you could only receive it with a purchase in a plant store, or with the purchase of a Simmons mattress. I’m not kidding.

There’s more to hear in this episode, so I won’t give away all the goods. Consider these shows a sampler: just click play to hear the best of what’s been recently released, then create your own adventure and track down the things you like most to explore them more deeply. And don’t forget to let us know what you like!

In fact, we’d like to hear from you so much that we’ve set up a special hotline to do just that! Simply call 862-239-5885 and leave a message telling us how you feel about something that you heard, or educate us as to a music release we should look into, or, just tell us about the weather in your neck of the woods. It’s your opportunity to be on the radio in NYC, so go for it.

We’ll also look into offering giveaways and contests, but first, the music. Always the music first.
