Inflatable Squirrel Carcass with Rich Hazelton
Three hours of spoken word recordings. That’s the kind of talk radio I like, and perhaps you will too. Samuel Beckett radio plays, Boris Karloff, Leonard Nimoy, John Barth, myths, legends, sound poetry, unsound poetry, instructional records, perhaps a piece or two from some of our DJs, these are a few of the things you may or may not hear tonight.

Marika Hackman
Friday, October 25th, 3pm - 6pm
Sophisticated Boom Boom with Sheila B.
Music writer Sophie Kemp called Marika Hackman’s third and most recent album, Any Human Friend (Sub Pop), “a singular, extraordinarily horny, and occasionally bleak pop record.” Pleasures of the flesh are explored both alone (“Hand Solo”) and with partners (“Come Undone”), but the sharp guitars, chilly melodies, and Marika’s soft yet serious voice don't quite evoke feelings of sensuousness as much as they do loneliness and a longing for connection. British born and London based, Marika is currently touring the US in support of Any Human Friend, and will be performing live on Sophisticated Boom Boom with her backing band, Girl Friday.
