Notes: I have to admit, the programming on this show was the result of something of an ulterior motive. The title of the theme (Journey Thru The Past) is taken from an unreleased film by Neil Young from the early 70's, which I happened to pick up at the bootleg shop in Tokyo. I thought the title fit the show well because the focus was on two old vinyl records I had of albums that have not yet been released in CD format. I actually wanted to convert them to CD, but to do that I had to record them onto cassete first, and I figured I could use that opportunity to play the albums on my radio show, since they really are fantastic albums and would suit my show perfectly.

The first of those two albums is Neil Young's sort-of-live album Time Fades Away, which was released around the same time as Journey Thru The Past. The other album is the debut album by a band known as Fear Itself, featuring a psychedelic bluesy approach to rock with a female vocalist (Ellen McIlwaine). I'm most certain that, if nothing else, it made for a very unique and uncommon radio experience.

For the rest of the show, I played the rest of the tracks from The Rolling Stones' new album A Bigger Bang. I, somewhat comically, finished that block of Stones with a Stones song being covered by David Bowie, which is something I just happened to find lying around in the back.
