Sinking Radio: Radar Bros. "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey"

This is my weekly reminder to point your internet browser to Little Radio each Friday from Noon to 2:00 PM for the Sinking Radio show. 

Each week, the hosts play an official You Set the Scene pick. My pick for tomorrow's show is the Radar Bros.' cover of Paul McCartney's "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey." The track comes a cool new release from Aquarium Drunkard/Autumn Tone Records. The record features 11 Los Angeles artists paying homage to my favorite McCartney solo record, RAM.  

Also featured on the compilation are You Set the Scene favorites: Le Switch, The Broken West, Amnion, Frankel, Parson Red Heads and Earlimart. Lots of fun stuff on the compilation, but my favorite has to be the Radar Bros. Jim Putnam totally nailed it. The cover maintains the spirit of the original, but showcases the Radar Bros. talent as well.

The compilation's totally free (they recommend donating to No More Landmines) and will be available starting Monday from the Aquarium Drunkard. If you don't own the original record, pick that up too. 

Tune in to Sinking Radio tomorrow to check it out.
