45 RPM Love Battle with Katie Gentile

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments




Radio ping-pong: In our second and final annual radio showdown, Yours truly (Rob that is) trade tracks with my connubial companion Katie Gentile. Among other things, Katie is an academic, author, open water swimmer, violinist for indie bands Special Pillow and Mad Scene, and former WCBN radio DJ. Somehow she makes time to come down to FMU and pit her collection of rare and classic vintage indie rock (with special Aussie / NZ emphasis) against my vintage and contemporary global sounds - exclusively on 7" vinyl.

This is also my last show during WFMU's online fund drive which ends Monday night. I'm still about $200 shy of the goal for my shift. Help me reach my goal and save face so I won't have to commit radio seppuku!
