Even though tonight's UKNY at 11 sits squarely in the final hour of Valentine's Day, any love songs played will be purely by happenstance, aside from one romantic cover inspired by seeing the great (although not British) Nile Rodgers and Chic—yes, Chic—play at Pacha in New York on Thursday night. Bliss. But we will travel to space with Public Service Broadcasting and hear other fresh offerings from Joanna Gruesome, Laura Doggett, Marika Hackman, Ghostpoet and much more.

The Bottomless Pit With Marshall Crenshaw For February 14

by Marshall Crenshaw
Amoeba Music in Los Angeles

Last August, while I was in California with The Bottle Rockets, I paid a visit one afternoon to Amoeba Music in Hollywood to shop, and to be filmed while shopping. They have a video feature on their website called "What's In My Bag." If you'd like to see a segment of "What's In My Bag" featuring me, watch it here.

I had a super-great time at Amoeba that day, and on tonight's "The Bottomless Pit" at 10, we'll take a listen to all of the records that I bought there, including selections by Sun Ra and The Arkestra, The Staple Singers, Lata Mangeshkar and a good many more.

Vin Scelsa's "Idiot's Delight" For February 14

If you were expecting Vin Scelsa to do an easy, Cupid-themed show for St. Valentine's Day, you might be a little disappointed: there might be more Eire than Eros on tonight's "Idiot's Delight"® at 8. But in addition to traipsing briefly through Ireland following the mossy path of playwright and poet Brendan Behan, Vin does come across some love songs (or something close to that) by Nina Simone, Rhiannon Giddens, Bobby Darin, Wishbone Zoe and others.
