Toadcast #268 - The Schoolcast

Playing tracks by

Pink Floyd, Lee Noble, Jake McKelvie & the Countertops, Neil Young, Thirty Pounds of Bone and more.

Welcome to The Schoolcast wherein I acknowledge a few of the people who have educated my music taste more than most. Without a Musical Big Brother figure in my life I have relied on a motley crew of people from all over to get me into music to which I might otherwise never have been exposed, and the process continues today of course.

For someone who is an accidentally self-appointed arbiter of taste* I actually know relatively little about music, and particularly the history of pop music. I don't know much Neil Young, for example, I don't know much Pink Floyd, I don't know much Dinosaur Jr. or Guided By Voices, or even Can - and those are just the ones for which I have been directly chided.

Anyhow, I am making inroads into some of this ignorance, and it's actually a shitload of fun, as you can imagine. As with last week's Neil Young write-up, I think I'll start covering some of these records on the blog a bit more often, as I think the blend of new and old music will work well.

The intro to this episode blows my mind in that it pretty much parallels my self inflated musical flatulations, What I took away from this is there is always something to learn. Thanks so much!!
