About this Episode

Velvet Underground [00:33]
a side: "Who Loves the Sun (mono)"

A suitably Lou Reed-esque lyric, sung but Doug Yule.

Deerhoof w/ special Guest Marc Ribot a side: "Who Sleeps, Only Dreams" [06:09]
Ceramic Dog b side: "Hide with Me" [09:20]
Northern Spy Records NS 053 2014
Yup, this is pretty much my dream split. The first Bay Area band that flipped my switch after moving out here, and my favorite guitarist that I tried to see at every opportunity when I live in NYC.

The Archies [14:48]
a side: "Who's Your Baby"
b side: "Senorita Rita"
Kirshner Records 63-5003 1969
Bubblegum pop with a gospel break on the a-side, and a latin themed flipside? The Archies covering all the bases with this 45.

DeBarge [20:17]
a side: "Who's Holding Donna Now?"
b side: "Be My Lady"
Gordy Records 1793GF 1985
Now that is some smooth r&b. No wonder it made it all the way to number 6 on the Hot 100.

Eurythmics [29:25]
a side: "Who's that Girl?"
b side: "Aqua"

b side: "Wildman/She's a Dork and I Like Her/Twist 'n' Shout"
