#1422: Silly Love
Love can be extremely restorative or intensely destructive, and everything in between. This set isn’t exactly all about that, but the songs go out to all the folks I know who are afflicted on both sides of the spectrum. Enjoy and share, and hang in there!

Weeks and weeks of my kids bringing home every possible combination of illness finally caught up with me and I’ve been bedridden with the most awful flu I’ve had in years. Loathe as I usually am to run repeats it’s a necessity this week but don’t worry! I’ve chosen one with all the fire and spirit needed to keep your head about you in our time of collective absurdity!
From classic rabble-rousers like John Lennon, AC/DC & Creedence Clearwater Revival to new dissenters like Sam Kogon & The Resonars, many voices heard from here. Plus new (at the time) releases from the Beyond Beyond is Beyond & Sunrise Ocean Bender labels and a premiere from King Gizzard. All the tunes to keep your upper lip stiff in the face of this insanity.
You can find the full playlist here, and I’ll see you next week with a brand new episode on Affinity Radio!
Some of the newer listeners may not know this, but not long ago this show was about purely vintage music. Although I gravitated towards psych and garage, no genre was off limits but the song had to be recorded between 1960-1979. At the end of last summer I decided to incorporate more modern tunes and draw more comparisons between old and new, and it’s been great so far.
I really loved that hour-long history lesson every Wednesday night, though. So while I’m still out on the road here are the final two episodes from the original iteration of Old Time Religion Radio Hour, mashed together into a 120 minute aural time machine. All vintage tunes, some classic and most not so widely known. For me, it was a transition. For you it’s a flashback.

Aw hell, it’s time to relive that “first episode” splendor!
Unfortunately I’m unable to be live in the BBOX studio this week! Everything’s fine, it’s just one of those weekends where life catches up with birthday parties and unexpected workdays, you know the drill.
However, if you have to air a rerun this episode is well worth it. At the end of 2015 I compiled the releases of my favorite label (and radio show) Beyond Beyond Is Beyond, and did an entire two hours exploring their output from the last three years. It turned out as an awesome exploration of psychedelic fuzz, and this aired before this 2016’s releases from Eerie Wanda, Our Solar System, and the Myrrors.
So as long as we’re looking back let’s enjoy the trip through this great label’s output. If you like what you hear, check out all things BBiB (including their fantastic Jamscripition program) at BeyondBeyondIsBeyond.com

Last summer I ran a special 6-part series covering the progression of popular music between 1960-1979. I’m on the road for the next two days so tonight I’ll be rerunning the episode on 1968, but I’ll include all 6 episodes after the jump for you to listen at your leisure.
Hope you enjoy, have a great week and I’ll see you next Weds with a new LIVE episode!

I’m always sorry to have to rerun an old show, but sometimes it’s necessary and this week I tried to select an old episode that was pertinent to what’s going on in the world today.
