Question of the Day: #2

by Corny O'Connell

It was a storybook ending for Derek Jeter's final game last night at Yankee Stadium. The Captain drove in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth and the stadium erupted in celebration. The man who wore #2 for twenty years as a Yankee has been one of the most talented, hardest-working and classiest guys in the game. In honor of his career we'll feature songs that mention the number "two". List your favorites below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played: 

The Jayhawks "Two Angels"

A Special Anniversary: John Lennon On the Air with Dennis Elsas

John Lennon was my "surprise" on-air guest on September 28th, 1974, 40 years ago this weekend. What began simply as an opportunity for John to promote his just-released Walls and Bridges album turned into two hours of radio magic: John as the DJ, John discussing his former bandmates and speculating on the possibility of a Beatles reunion, John sharing some of the secrets behind the songs, and John just being John.

Question of the Day: Rainy Days and Thursdays?

by Corny O'Connell

Rainy days and Mondays may get you down, but it's Thursday. So, we're definitely not gonna let today's rain get us down. We're going to celebrate it in song. Give us your favorite songs that mention rain and we'll stomp in the puddles just after 9am.

Here's what we played:

The Ronettes "Walking in the Rain"

John Hiatt "Feels Like Rain"

Neko Case "Buckets of Rain"

Ann Peebles "I Can't Stand the Rain"

Travis "Why Does It Always Rain on Me?"

Tennis - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

Tennis, a husband-and-wife duo, first started making music after they took a very ambitious seven-month long sailing trip. After returning home, Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley began writing songs, influenced by their seafaring adventures. They released their first album, Cape Dory, in 2011 to rave reviews. Evolving from their sailing subject matter over the last few years, Tennis recently released their third album, Ritual in Repeat, and are still basking in praise: Stereogum observes that Tennis finds a way to make “classic rock and radio pop commingle freely into casual grooves and contented sighs" while NPR Music calls Ritual in Repeat “the best record Tennis has done so far."
