Sunday's with DJ Drew on BTR
Today we review the debut solo album from Jonathan Rado, one of the lead members of Foxygen. Law and Order, an ambitious production, was released on September 3rd by Woodsist Records. Rado covers a variety of genres including soul, funk, garage rock, 60s psychedelia, country folk, and noise in the LP, giving a new twist to classic compositions. The albums, experimental at points, is a great display of his musical range and prowess in production.
OOoooohh!!! There's so, so much good music on the show today!! First of all, we've got my absolute favorite album from this summer, Blowout, by Brooklyn's own So So Glos. Plus, brand new Islands AND Bill Callahan AND Someone Still Loves You, Boris Yeltsin. Plus, stay tuned for some super cool Speedy Ortiz news that we have on the station this week. And, as always, check out BTR on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest updates!

Sunday's with DJ Drew on BTR
It's my five year anniversary on BTR!! That's right, five years of Saturday Shows and God Bless Weirdmerica, and I couldn't be happier and more proud to be a part of the BTR family.

Have you ever found a too-good-to-be-true designer deal on eBay? Well, chances are, it might actually BE too good to be true: you could be spending all your hard-earned cash on a fake! On today's Sew & Tell, I'm joined by fashion authentication expert Fei Deyle, whose personal passion for designer goods turned her Herve Leger blog into a sorely-needed online designer goods retail platform called Lollipuff. Unlike most other resale sites, Lollipuff offers 100% authentication of goods bought and sold, and, not surprisingly, it has grown rapidly since its launch just eight months ago. On today's show, you'll hear from Fei about how a personal blog led to a revolutionary retail website, her personal passion for designer goods (and, of course, Herve Leger!), and a few telltale signs that can alert a buyer to a fake. Plus, a great playlist of new music including the latest from Superchunk, The Dismemberment Plan, DIANA, Julia Holter, and more! So turn it up and tune in for some *authentically* stylish radio, on BTR!
