Wow, have not heard/listened to Scrawl in a long time! Thanks.

6:31 PM, February 13th, 2016
Steve Kirkland (host)
C.I. -- glad you enjoyed... for me, Scrawl still stand out among the early 90s indie wave...

Maybe it's the Simple Machines stamp of approval. Time to revisit.

Listening from very warm San Diego. I'll take your weather for a day or two! Nice to hear some Michael Head.

Hi, Esther, nice to hear from you. You don't want this weather, unless you're looking out at it through a window... as I write this, it's to a warmmmmmm Californian soundtrack... aaaaahhhh

It's good to listen to music that warms the heart on this freezing cold day. Always loved Tav Falco and just picked up one of his older albums.

Great soundtrack to our family dinner!

That tribute to Arthur Lee is a great compilation and it even has A Television Personalities and a Teenage Fanclub cover. Have you heard the Arthur Lee album with Shack backing him (Michael Head)?

Early Miles wrote a very romantic song somewhere late 50's early 60s, maybe for a movie soundtrack. It is a genuinely affectionate monument to romantic love. That's the impression I retain remembering nothing else about the song.

Thank for all the comments... and for listening in.
