The Thursday Show for February 4, 2016 brings you a reworked version of a classic album by John Cale, one of the founding members of The Velvet Underground. Here is some more info from the label, Domino Records: In 1982 John Cale released his solo album Music For a New Society. Now, M:FANS- a rework of that album is a fully remastered version of the original album with and additional three unreleased bonus tracks. During the making of M:FANS, Cale found himself loathing each and every character written about in the original recording sessions but unearthing those tapes reopened those wounds. It was time to decimate the despair from 1981, breathe new energy and re-write the story.
This week, Jason thrills you with an explanation of how reverb is made. Plus, lots of great songs, including a few from the new James Hunter Six LP, and The Magnificent Tape Band.

How will it all turn out???
This week, Jason has some great, finely-matched pairs of songs, from all over the globe. USA, the UK, Spain, Nigeria, Portugal, and possibly one more. So, put on your globe-trotting shoes, and don't forget to let me know where you bought them; as I didn't know that they were a real thing. I just use standard hiking boots. What a loser..

This week, Jason has more songs than the Eurovision Song Contest, minus a bunch of songs. There genuinely is a fantastic variety of styles in today's show though, even if it doesn't quite live up to Eurovision's sheer entertainment value. We definitely make up for that in quality. One of the best shows we've ever done. Yes.
This week, Jason has a plethora of emotions in store for your tiny little brains. Let's see if you can cope with the sheer magnitude of, erm, emotions (dammit, already used that word in this description..), that the, erm, oh, whatever.
Sweet Spirit began as a sort of side project for Austin’s Sabrina Ellis. Launched as a more country and soul-inspired singer-songwriter outlet to balance the wild, punk side of her musical life in the band A Giant Dog, the project quickly changed course, as her AGD bandmate Andrew Cashen joined, and the duo recruited more players to fill out their new songs. Now, a full on wild party of sound onstage -- not to mention, buzzy as hell thanks to praise from Austin heroes Spoon -- Sweet Spirit is dominating their local scene and getting attention nationwide. They reigned the chaos in just enough to rock out for this session at Serious Business Music in DUMBO in the midst of a stop in town for the annual CMJ Music Marathon.
This week, Jason has a New Year's Special for you. Well, sort of. Occasionally he mentions that it's a different year now.. Still, the music is sooper dooper top notch heavy dooty stuff, so what's not to like?
