Today on the show we’re playing some new “old favorites.”  Remember 2009 when Bitte Orca, Veckatemist, and Merriweather Post Pavilion all came out, one right after the other?  I’m not sure there’s been another moment quite like that in the three years since then.  That’s been on my mind lately, so we’re playing these new old giants on the show today- but from different albums, of course!  Who do you think we are, mainstream radio?  Psh.
