Playlist for 4-1-09

A baseball theme started the show this week. My world champion Phillies start the season with a game at home against the Braves on Sunday on ESPN. Meanwhile, my second-favorite team, the Brewers, open Tuesday at San Francisco. Can't hardly wait (token Replacements reference).

I started a new independent label spotlight segment I'm calling I Love My Label, a name I stole from the Nick Lowe song. This week I featured the excellent Milwaukee label Easter Records, home of Trolley, the Nice Outfit, Heathrow and a few others. My 7-inch Six-Pack selections all came from WMSE's music rummage sale over the weekend. I picked up a great pile of 50-cent 45's and a wacky Christian Folk record with drug needles, dice and whiskey pictured on the cover. Good times await - I plan on playing a song from it next week.

Finally, fans of the Waco Brothers or Meat Purveyors will want to check out Muskego native Dean Schlabowske from the Waco Brothers recently hooked up with Austin's Meat Purveyors to record an album that you can download for free from their website. Don't forget to tip your guitarslingers.
