45 RPM Love Battle with Katie Gentile

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments

Radio ping-pong: Rob trades tracks with his sidekick Katie Gentile, academic, author, and violinist for indie psyche-pop band The Special Pillow. An annual tradition, but with a twist this year, as per this week's station-wide imperative. Katie's vintage indie rock goes head to head with Rob's vintage global sounds - but this time around, exclusively at 45 revolutions per minute.
