Jellyfish - Spilt Milk

Season 3, Ep. 39

Hope you're ready to join a fan club, because this episode is new and NOT a mistake! Now Hear This welcomes special guest Joe Pierandozzi to walk us through the wild, whacky and otherwise wonderful 1993 Jellyfish LP Spilt Milk. This Sturmer/Manning masterwork came in over-time, over-budget and over-blown, but has evolved into the kind of cult record that would spawn a million indie darlings - and continues to inspire to this day. Now hear this: "New Mistake," "Russian Hill," and "He's My Best Friend."

  • 37. Ringo Starr - Old Wave

    01:24:29
    What's his name? It's RINGO! What's the album we're talking about today? OLD WAVE! The best Ringo album you've likely...never heard? In 1983 when former Beatle Ringo Starr needed a new sound to revitalize his solo career, ol' Ritchie enlisted the help of Eagles rocker Joe Walsh to craft a clean, catchy, up-tempo record that embodied the very best in Starr's capabilities. But a string of flops wrecked label havoc with this collection, and its contents would take years to surface in the US and GB. Discussing Old Wave with us today is founder of the hit Yesterday & Today podcast, Wayne Kaminski - who's here to talk Ringo, Caveman, tracking down dutch imports in the early 80's, and much more.
