so, we're over the hurdle of bottle rocket's first FM broadcast (106.6 donchaknow), and i'm gonna judge it... a success! (in so much as we didn't swear or break anything). the theme was movies (a sequel to the feb 12th show), and though we seemed to wander off topic here and there, at least the tunes remained topical. its up now to listen again on the subcity.org site, as are all the other shows (including the original movie special - don't worry, the plot's pretty easy to pick up so you don't have to listen to em in order or nuffin).
when we weren't gasping at the neverending story remake news or chatting about the Glasgow film festival and the Oscars, here's what we played:
- Toots and the Maytals - 54 46 Was My Number
- The Notwist - Consequence
- Aimee Mann - Wise Up
- Nina Simone - Sinnerman
- Dusty Springfield - Son of a Preacher Man
- Badly Drawn Boy - Something To Talk About
- Yann Tiersen - La Valse D'Amelie
- Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova - Falling Slowly
- Pixies - Hey
- Lou Reed - This Magic Moment
- Isaac Hayes - Theme From Shaft
plus some splendid background music from such silver screen classics as the magnificent seven, the terminator, 633 squadron, e.t., requiem for a dream and escape from new york.
tune in next week for a return to the more traditional bottle rocket radio - new bands, touring bands and such like.
