Singles Going Steady 45 RPM Love Battle - Segue Impossible 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 and the expanded version of The Mad Scene. Katie's mostly vintage indie rock (with Aussie / NZ emphasis) goes head to head with Rob's vintage and contemporary global sounds - exclusively on 7" vinyl.
