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
