Originally broadcast 01/15/16. Here’s the original show post:

CLAR162-SinAndConsequence-Banner

Oh, this will be grand fun!

Courtesy of Tribble guest host Matthew Berg (someone remarkably conversant with music recorded a half-century before he was born, as he proves every week during the Duane FM request show on Saturday nights), the next ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse […]) will concern itself with very bad things, and what happens (or should) when one does very bad things.

Matthew has put together a truly magnificent set list. Attendance is mandatory. It will be on the final.

Matthew also put together some great show notes, which I highly recommend you check out here.

Hope you can stop by and listen, and join us in chat.

The Spotify playlist is here. (Songs that are not available on Spotify–there are three–are indicated with an asterisk.)

CLA Radio 05/12/17: Exile On Main St.

What: ConservativeLA Radio will mark the 45th anniversary (yikes!) of the release of The Rolling Stones’ Exile On Main St.:

On the response to the album, Richards said, “When [Exile] came out it didn’t sell particularly well at the beginning, and it was also pretty much universally panned. But within a few years the people who had written the reviews saying it was a piece of crap were extolling it as the best frigging album in the world.”

I wouldn’t go that far, but it’s my favorite Stones album, and has to be included on any rational Top Five Stones Albums list.

Somehow I missed the bonus tracks that were released in 2010 until I assembled this show. Fun stuff!

The first hour of the show will consist of documentary material, so if you’re averse to bad language, or to tales of rock ‘n roll debauchery, drug addiction, moral turpitude, and the like, then you might want to take a pass on this particular show.

When: Friday, May 12, 2017; 6:00 PM Pacific/9:00 PM Eastern. The show will run nearly three hours.

Where: Duane FM in the Hughniverse.

Spotify playlist: Here. (Material marked with an asterisk not included on the Spotify playlist.)
