New favorite internet broadcaster, this week: WOXY Vintage. The regular WOXY isn't my cup of tea, really, heavy on the indie-rock crapola (though back when they were still over-the-air at 97X outta Oxford, OH, they were such a breath of fresh air in the midwest - buddy of mine used to be their MD, too [Hello, Mr. Couché!]), but their recently relaunched Vintage channel is some seriously good shit, all '80s and some early '90s, primo as it gets. Just heard a killer pair of segues, from The Mission UK's "Wasteland" (!) into the Smashing Pumpkins' "Drown" (nice) to Mike Watt's "Against the '70s" (!!! - Eddie Vedder helping on vocals, too!). I'm in my mid-30s, and I don't care. Lick it up, baby, lick. It. Up.
