  • FFRW 20 I'm Not Afraid To Be A Morning Glory Aired: Tuesday, November 19, 2019

     They've all been trying to frighten me. They've been trying to frighten me into being sensible, but they can't do it. Not now. Not yet. They've got to let me be as foolish as I want to be. I-I want to ride through the crowd. I want to- I want to go buy me a mink coat. And I'll buy you a beautiful present. And Mr. Hedges! I'll buy Mr. Hedges a little house. And it'll have rooms full of white orchids. And they've got to tell me that I'm much more wonderful than anyone else because, Nellie - Nellie, I'm not afraid. I'm not afraid of being just a morning glory. I'm not afraid. I'm not afraid.

  • FFRW 19 Bennington College mixtape Aired: Tuesday, November 12, 2019

    I don't know who made this cassette.

    I do know it came from Bennington College and was made in the early 1980's.

    I grew up in Bennington VT and attended a few parties there around that time so maybe I found it or possibly my brother grabbed it, who knows?

    The tape is low quality and in rough shape but has great songs on it!


  • FFRW 18 Beginning of November Aired: Tuesday, November 5, 2019

    Seven days and seven nights  I dreamt a sailor's dream of me
    You must sprinkle dust all around my bed  You musta had a black cat bone
    Inside your pretending  Crimes have been swept aside
    Til I wake you ghost.  Let him walk down your hallway
    Madness in the wind's got something to say
    I've got a crystal ball and a divining rod  Magnifying glass and a pack of dogs
    Uncle Bill, well, he took ill, and they sent for me to come
    Well, I had to pass by the old graveyard so I went on the run

  • FFRW 17 End of October Aired: Tuesday, October 29, 2019

  • FFRW 16 Broken Arrow Aired: Tuesday, October 15, 2019

    The lights turned on and the curtain fell down
    And when it was over it felt like a dream
    They stood at the stage door and begged for a scream
    The agents had paid for the black limousine
    That waited outside in the rain
    Did you see them?

  • FFRW 15 Clouds Coming In Aired: Tuesday, October 8, 2019

    In 2013, Kim Shattuck replaced Kim Deal in the Pixies, who had abruptly quit the band the month before. She was fired later that year, she guessed for taking a stage dive at a show in LA. “When I got offstage, the manager told me not to do that again. I said, ‘Really, for my own safety?’ And he said, ‘No, because the Pixies don’t do that.’”

  • FFRW 14 Todd's Stuff 85 Aired: Tuesday, October 1, 2019

    Todd Reynold's recorded this cassette in 1985 and he hadn't heard it for many years...
