Old Zoo Revue, Coming Right at You
Perhaps you missed it on Friday, when XM went all KLIF circa late 1960s. So on this Monday, here's your chance to check out local radio in 1974 -- July 4, 1974, specifically, when Procol Harum appeared up on the late, great KZEW-FM during a trip to Dallas to play some Independence Day gig. The boot's been long circulated amongst PH fans; me, I'm just a fan of old local radio bumpers. And here's a transcript from the interview The Zoo's Ken Rundell conducted during the show with frontman Keith Reid.
And if post-"Whiter Shade of Pale" Procol Harum ain't your thing because you have ears, go here to hear the song "Dark Stranger" from Kristy Krüger, which appears on the just-released New Arrivals, Volume 2 collection. Oh, and in case you were unaware of this, Centro-matic has a new album out -- well, a recent album made of songs left off the band's 2006 release Fort Recovery. It's called Operation Motorcide, and you can hear the song "74 Cuts, 74 Scars" from it here -- or on the band's MySpace page, where most of it's currently streaming. --Robert Wilonsky
