Happy September Saturday!  I hope everyone out there has been enjoying the sweater weather- I know I am.  There’s nothing better than being able to wear something snuggly AND get away with open toed shoes.  If you need your early fall perfectly soundtracked, then BTR is the sweater/sandals music combo you’ve been looking for!  We’ve got amazing new stuff on the show today from a Swedish band named Goat, an Irish band named So Cow, and a Canadian man named, of course, Moonface.  Stay tuned to check it all out!

Well, it’s September.  Summer (aka the party) is over.  Time to get back to school, back to work, back from vacation.  Except one thing that’s NEVER over here on BTR is amazing new music.  Last week we celebrated my six year anniversary by playing all old tracks, and this week we’re turning it around and only playing brand new songs!  Showstoppers include new tracks from Real Estate, Sean Rowe, and Marketa Irglova.  And don’t forget to follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, and SoundCloud!

Ooooh boy, today on the show I get to play you an old song from one of my all time favorite old bands- The Unicorns.  They broke up over ten years ago, and now they’re playing for the first time since!  And speaking of old favorites, we go on a walk down memory lane today with Bishop Allen and Orenda Fink.  It’s all here on BTR, and all you have to do is sit back, relax, and listen.  Oh, and make sure to follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, and Instagram!
It’s Hero Week on BTR! For today’s Sew & Tell, I thought it would be fun to take a look at the world of superhero fashion: joining me is Alan Kistler, author, historian, and expert on comic book and sci fi character evolution. In addition to writing and contributing to several books, Alan delivers a weekly comic/sci-fi entertainment news podcast called “Crazy Sexy Geeks,” and writes “Agents of S.T.Y.L.E.,” a regular column featured on The Mary Sue that examines the fashion and design evolution of superheroes, villains, and sci fi characters. On today’s show, Alan shares his picks for Most Stylish Superheroes, some of the problems behind the industry’s lack of female protagonists, and his opinions on the recently-released, controversial new costume for Wonder Woman as portrayed in the upcoming Batman v Superman movie. Plus, a funky playlist featuring a freak folk set with music from The Amazing Snakeheads, Castanets and Joel Jerome, along with new releases from Orenda Fink, Bishop Allen, and more. So tune in for a Friday of heroic fashion, here on BreakThru Radio!
Tune in today for an all new broadcast of The Folk Wave on BreakThru Radio!
