Fanatic! Our second show for September. I can see that you've had a fairly warm week in Berlin. Hopefully, these tracks are a great soundtrack with which to start the weekend.

Iggy's new album Free is out and that being the case, I thought it would be best to start the show with a track from it.

Two other great releases to mention. The new Oh Sees album Face Stabber is out, after a slight delay. Sounds great. Also Mikey Young's You Feelin' Me album also just came out, really cool. Both of these are on Castle Face. We'll get a new Mikey track into the mix as soon as we can.

I think Ty Segall's new album First Taste is his best one yet. We have a track from it for you In our first hour.

Fanatic, we do hope you're checking out these Friday night shows and enjoying them.

Have a great weekend and STAY FANATIC!!!

Fanatic! Welcome to our first September show. Sorry about not having the show notes up last week. I forgot to send them in and by the time I was reminded, it was too late. Ugh! We have posted them nonetheless so you have access to the information.

We have slightly shifted our music mood to what we consider early fall listening. Hopefully, things are starting to cool off in Berlin. In Los Angeles where we’re located, the heat is blasting.

We hope you enjoy the show. We have next week’s tracks already prepared and ready to. Thanks for listening and STAY FANATIC!!!

Fanatic! Our last show for August and in my mind, the last show for the summer. I know that on the calendar, September 1 is not the start of fall but in my mind, it is. We design this show by season, temperature and light cycle. As best we can, at least. Sometimes, the warm weather goes for quite awhile into the later parts of the year in and it doesn’t always feel like the season has changed but nonetheless, in my mind at least, the music must change. We must somehow move with the year, otherwise, what we’re doing is too static and there’s no fun in that.

So, this is our last blast of hot weather music for the year. Next week, we’ll start changing things. I hope that makes you curious and you will tune in to see what we have for you.

Please, if you can, listen to this show every week, either live or at KCRWBerlin.com!

We’re very excited to be able to roll out a show for you once a week. Until next week, enjoy the show and STAY FANATIC!!!

Fanatic! Such a great show we have lined up for you. As the weeks go on, we will be rolling in a lot more tracks from new and newer releases, of course while maintaining our Friday-night-is-the-night-of-nights feel. I wanted to take a few shows to break us all in before we started picking up speed.

I hope you have been digging these shows. Suddenly Engineer Am-Rock and I go from preparing one show a week for KCRW to two, so it's a stretch but if you're digging it, then it's worth it. Please keep listening!

You might want to check this out. Am-Rock and I, along with Engineer X, have a show on KCRW in Santa Monica that goes on at 0500 hrs. Monday morning in Berlin, 2000 hrs. in California on Sunday night. You can hear it later at KCRW.com. This coming Sunday, we will have John Dwyer of the Oh Sees as our guest and we will be premiering the band's new album, Face Stabber in its entirety. It should be a great one.

Keep cool and STAY FANATIC!!!

Fanatic! I’m back in Los Angeles. I had a great week in Germany at the Wacken Festival.

Fanatic, we have such a great show lined up for you. The Cigarettes track is really smart. I’ve had that 7” for decades.

If you notice, we have a track credited to Dee Dee Ramone, from his solo album Zonked but if the vocals sound like Joey Ramone, that’s because it is. One of the few guest appearances Joey ever did.

In our second hour, the Gun Club track Nobody’s City is one of my favorites of theirs, also that it was a B side, makes it even cooler.

I thought I should explain a little about the last track of the night, the Roll Call with JJ Starr. Mr. Starr was a dj in Washington, DC and about forty years ago, part of his radio show was for listeners to leave their names on the station’s message machine, and JJ would read them out. Some of the names are so intense. Whenever I was in DC in those days, I would try to record the roll call. I hope you like it in all its compressed AM mono glory

Thanks for listening and until next week, STAY FANATIC!!!

Fanatic! What a great deal, we're together again on the radio. We have a fantastic show for you. I know, we're starting with David Bowie again. How bad can that be? Have you ever heard him cover White Light/White Heat? Wow!

We have, yet again, another great mix tape masquerading as a radio show, which is totally working for me, Fanatic.

Engineer Am-Rock and I tried to design a perfect warm weather soundtrack for a Friday night. I know it's hot there right now. I'm writing to you from Los Angeles, it's a desert.

I'll be in Germany next week at Wacken. Looking forward to that.

Next week's show is already done. Please tune in if you can.

Thanks for listening and STAY FANATIC!!!

Fanatic! Here we are back for our second show. Again, I can’t explain how happy Engineer Am-Rock and I are to be back with you for our second show.

It’s Friday night, for me at least, the best night of the week. I think for me, it’s from the memory of how much I didn’t enjoy school and Friday night was the beginning of at least one day of freedom. Sundays were a drag and still are, so I’m all about Friday.

We design our show according to season, which obviously takes in temperature and light cycle. Knowing it’s going to be hot in Berlin when we’re on the air with you, we planned what will hopefully be a great soundtrack to get the weekend off to a great start.

Sister Midnight is one of the best songs ever, and a perfect way to get us into the rest of the show. That was a Carlos Alomar riff that he and Bowie used again on the Lodger album for the last track, Red Money. The version Bowie and his band do on the 1976 Vancouver Rehearsals album is fantastic.

If you look down at our play list, you’ll see in our first hour, track 5, the great Molly Nilsson, from Sweden I believe, who lives in Berlin. I’ve seen her perform twice now and she’s always great. You should see her play if you get a chance.

The track after Molly’s, Felt Letters' 600,00 Bands is one of my favorite songs of all time. It’s the great Ian Svenonius teamed up with Brendan Canty, from some band called Fugazi, and you have the Felt Letters. Recently Mr. Ian was on our show on KCRW Santa Monica and he said the lyrics for the song were improvised. No way!

Fanatic, I am 100% sold on our line-up for this show. It’s a perfect mix tape. If you can, listen all the way through. Twice if possible. If all goes according to plan, we’ll be back with you next week.

Thanks for listening and STAY FANATIC!!!

KCRW BERLIN #001

Fanatic! As promised on the show, here are the show notes for tonight’s broadcast.

I’ve had a show on KCRW FM in Santa Monica, California, since 2009. For the last few years, I've worked with an engineer there named Amy Rocen, who I dubbed Engineer Am-Rock.

Recently, we were asked if we wanted to do a show on KCRW Berlin. Of course, we said yes. Am-Rock and I got right to work on putting together shows for you.

Our “big idea” if you will, is that we only play one kind of music; good music. What we try to do with every show is prove that you can find great jams all over the place. Hopefully you will enjoy what we’re rolling out for you every Friday night at 2100 hrs.

I know it’s asking a lot but if possible, LISTEN TO US EVERY WEEK! What else do you think I would advise?!

We will post these notes every Wednesday, at the latest, Thursday. This will allow you to see what’s happening, or if you wanted to check on a certain song and didn’t catch the information the first time around, you have it all right here.

Remember, KCRWBerlin.com is the place in case your radio isn't picking up the signal.

We are very happy to be on the air with you! I started coming to Berlin in 1983 and it’s been a great time every time.

Enjoy the show and STAY FANATIC!!!
