New Viva show (#98) in archives.
Thanks again to all who contributed to the 1997 project. I ended up using only a handful of the picks (in truth, I had 40 of 60 minutes programmed before I asked for help!), but I listened to all and enjoyed them immensely.
Considering an all-acapella playlist. You know, Prelude: "After the Goldrush", Bobby McFerrin, Guillaume de Machaut, selections from that Bjork album, etc. Is there enough good acapella material out there to warrant such an endeavor? Let me know if you have ideas...

Deerhoof - Polly Bee
Getting pumped for the big show at Poisson Rouge tonight: Deerhoof. A band who continue to expand the rock idiom both harmonically and melodically (as opposed to merely texturally and rhythmically). Tickets still available!
Meanwhile, the 1997 project rolls along. Keep sending me your suggestions for a playlist of all songs from 1997, the last year when everything was shiny and the world was perfect. Deadline is this Friday.

Beck - Deadweight (edit)
I'm working on an all-1997 playlist for Viva Radio. This is one of the signature jams I remember from that gleaming year. Please write in with further suggestions for the playlist. Any organized sound created and/or distributed in 1997 qualifies. Deadline is this Friday 10/15!
P.S. Enjoy the authentic digi-rot at 0:43.
