The Western Reserve – Episode 18

No themes for episode 18 of The Western Reserve. Just an hour of great music from all around Ohio kicked off with a special tribute to our friend, the late Uncle Fun, and his band Bargoyle. The show is rounded out with Swearing at Motorists, Blueprint, Terrestials, Swim Team, and many more. Unrelated note: I will say that I recently took a short trip to Atlanta with Sherri for a conference she had (I had nothing to do but watch the World Cup and go to record stores and historic sites) and we flew both ways. And on my way to Atlanta I sat next to a very nice British man who was headed back to Machester, but had just finished a work trip to Canton. On the trip he was recording the Brass Band of the Western Reserve in a big auditorium studio somewhere. I thought that was pretty wild. I told him about my work at a theater but we did not chat much really once the plane went up, so my podcast didn’t come up. Missed opportunity. Well, as we say on my now very seldom seen podcast 6 Bs and a P: “Brass Band of the Western Reserve, we would love to have you on the show.” We’ll play some of their tunes in the future.

Bargoyle – “Doesn’t Matter”
Swim Team – “Re-Animator”
Swearing at Motorists – “Creature of Habits (Theme From the Big Spill)”
Blueprint – “Night Writers”
Goldmines – “September”
Blake Skidmore – “Blame Benji”
The 1984 Draft  – “Megaphone”
Terrestials – “Moonblade”
Penny Wishes – “Do the Trick”
Sinkane – “U’Huh”
Time and Temperature – “Let It”
Smug Brothers – “Get Some Sweet”
Cheap Clone – “Isaac Newton’s Eye”
Neutrals – “Cleveland”
