DJS OF THE WEEK
BEN FREEDMAN '09 AND MICAH MCKAY'09
Top five desert island albums?
BF: Bob Dylan: "Bob Dylan."
The Anthology of American Folk Music (Compiled by Harry Smith).
Dave van Ronk: "The Folkways Years."
Townes van Zandt: "Live at the Old Quarter."
Travelling Wilburys: "Volume 1."
MM: Wow that's way too hard but here are five albums I'm really enjoing at the moment:
Pavement: "Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain."
Bob Dylan: "Blonde on Blonde."
M. Ward: "Transfiguration of Vincent."
My Morning Jacket: "It Still Moves."
Dr. Dog : "We All Belong."
Theme song on a Monday morning?
BF: "So Long Marianne," Leonard Cohen.
MM: I'm not sure my Monday morning deserves a theme song, but I think the Black Keys' "10 A.M. Automatic" would get the day off to a good start.
Soundtrack on a Saturday night?
BF: "Wake Up," Dr. Dog, over and over again, stressing the second half of course.
MM: Lionel Richie "Dancing on the Ceiling." No, no wait just kidding, definitely Lionel Richie "All Night Long."
What's the first album you ever bought?
BF: "Magical Mystery Tour," the Beatles.
MM: I'm not sure if I bought this album or if it was given to me, but I remember getting down at a very early age to a CD titled "Millennium Funk Party." Kool & The Gang, Curtis Mayfield, Parliament...hell yes.
What's your music guilty pleasure?
BF: The theme songs to "Saved by the Bell," "Family Matters," and "Step by Step."
MM: Hall and Oats "Rich Girl" or anything from Matt Eshelman's "Babies Making Babies" playlist.
What's the best live show you've ever seen?
BF: Bob Dylan and the Raconteurs last year down in Portland. Dylan's predictability was totally outdone by the sheer ear-bleeding capabilities of the Raconteurs.
MM: Wilco and My Morning Jacket in 2005 at the Albright Knox, Buffalo, NY. Two of my favorite bands together for an all-around super show.
If you were the dictator of a small country, what would your national anthem be?
BF: "Quinn the Eskimo" or "Mozambique," Bob Dylan.
MM: Robert Goulet: "Begin to Love."
If you were going into battle, what song would be blasting on your iPod?
BF: "Right Now," Van Halen, but I'd prefer listening on a walkman.
MM: Rage Against the Machine: "Bulls On Parade."
Artist/band you banked on making it big and then they broke up:
BF: Gustafer Yellowgold. The dude could play and his cute yellow friend sure could dance.
MM: The KPR Revolution...so much potential.
