Each week it’s ”From The Phans” on Phillies 24/7. You can find it on your HD Radio at 98.1 HD-4 every Thursday at 3pm, or you can find it right here! If you would like to be a part of next week’s episode please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s a show about being a Phillies fan, made by Phillies fans.
This week we ponder “the MRI” and BradLidge‘s retirement with Kevin Schilling, and get ready for the Nationals series with Joe Drugan from TheNatsBlog.com.
A few miles and many years north of Saves The Day, is another Jersey band that packs massive amounts of words and heart into three-minute pop songs.
This week, “Talon Of The Hawk“, marked the return of The Front Bottoms. Everything here is tighter and more focused than their full length debut two years ago. Gone is some of the violence and sex, making way for more pointed lyrical gems like “I want to be stronger than your dad was for your mom” and “goodbye future once so bright, meet my pregnant girlfriend“.
In other news, tell your girlfriend to check out the Laura Mvula album, and your little brother to check out Cam Meekins…but keep this one for yourself.
Last Friday night, Gordon and I went back to 1995 when Spacehog played Kung Fu Necktie in Philadelphia.
They put out a new album this year. It doesn’t have “In The Meantime” or “Mungo City” on it, soooooooo.
None the less, they ripped through a tight set, and I got to scream “From Mungo City!” in an appropriate setting for the first time ever.
After the show when Gordon wandered off to take care of some business, I noticed lead singer Royston Langdon sitting at the merch table. When the flow of picture-takers had slowed and I was clutching an empty “Natty Bo”, I decided to make my way over and talk with Royston for a bit.
