RADIOHEAD AND SPIRITUALIZED ON THE NPR CONCERT SERIES



THE NPR CONCERT SERIES is just one of many reasons why NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO is one of the greatest media outlets this fine nation has to offer. Thank Gawd McDonaldland Mogul Ray Kroc's Wife died and left this left-leaning organization a fortune a few years back, because I am sure the sale of all those greasy cardboard cheeseburgers made shit like this possible.



This RADIOHEAD show was recorded way back in late August at the utterly beautiful Santa Barbara Bowl and finally released to the public this past Saturday night. You can go to this page just like most of the other episodes they offer and DOWNLOAD the whole 2 plus hour show.

...And as an added bonus to you my Doritos, I added a broadcast of another brilliant band by the name of SPIRITUALIZED taken from their 9:30 Club Show in July. While it isn't as mind-melting as their 1999 CD release LIVE AT THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL (One of the best live albums ever if you're zonked on pharmaceuticals...) it is a fine fine performance.

SPIRITUALIZED SET LIST-
"You Lie You Cheat"
"Shine a Light"
"Cheapster"
"Electricity"
"Soul on Fire"
"Sweet Talk"
"Sitting on Fire"
"Walkin' With Jesus"
"Oh Baby"
"Rated X"
"Lay Back in the Sun"
"Death Take Your Fiddle"
"She Kissed Me (It Felt Like a Hit)"
