It’s my six year anniversary of DJing the Saturday show! It’s hard to believe that much time has passed, but it’s been great being part of the BTR family. Playing good music every Saturday for the best listeners around is the coolest. Today to celebrate I play all of my absolute favorite tunes from the past six years. It’s a great show, so stick around and party with me!

We’ve got that last part covered for you today on BTR, with new tracks from Anand Wilder of God Bless Weirdmerica favorites, Yesayer, Emby Alexander, and Black Bananas.

Today on the show we're playing two tracks from the resurrected folk hero Linda Perhacs. It doesn't get more New Weird America than Linda. In 1970 she recorded a folk album that was lost to time, until New Weird America folks resurrected it decades later as a forgotten masterpiece. And now she has a brand new album out for us to share! All that and more on today's show, plus don't forget to follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Instagram, Pinterest, and SoundCloud.
Ok, we all do it. Not one of us is immune to it's siren call. No, I'm not talking about the ones who liked to call weary sailors to their deaths. I'm talking about Trader Joes, the store with $2 bottles of wine of course. We thought it would be a great idea to discuss our personal keys to a successful TJ's run.
It's fitness week here on BTR, and I know we're all in that stage of the game where we're wondering if we'll keep our New Year's Resolutions.
