7am Swim with Sperber Dan: February 11, 2017

We opened the show with Steely Dan's 'Things I Miss The Most', a deeply cynical modern consumerist take on the break up song.

We spoke to Laura Biding-Citizen about waste reduction in the home.

We spoke to Aidan Assist about gender and identity politics in comic books

We dropped (and lifted) some dusty needles on some pretty crackly records; 

  • The Pat Williams Band - Think (an instrumental of the song made famous by Aretha Franklin)
  • Caroline Crawford - Coming On Strong
  • Enoch Light - I Feel Love (yes, the Donna Summer song)
  • Esther Phillips - Our Day Will Come
  • Elliott Murphy - White Middle Class Blues 
  • Country Joe McDonald - Love Is A Fire


And we finished with this very clever piece of songsmithery by Dr Downes;
The Verlaines - Beauty Is Truth

Ariel Pink & Weyes Blood - Tears on Fire
Cage The Elephant - Cold, Cold, Cold
