Were you awake this morning at the ungodly hour of 9am?
I was, and honestly, I don’t know how you people do it. But with a little help from the amphetamine juice called 5 Hour Energy Boost, a few fruitty bottles of Powerade Zero and my Little Jetta That Could ambitiously motoring up Route 1A all the way to Lynn, I dropped by the WFNX radio studio this morning to be a guest on the Breakfast Show with Fletcher and Henry Santoro.
The subject was this week’s “Class of 2011: Boston’s 11 Best New Bands” feature in the Boston Phoenix, with Stereo Telescope’s “Geography” and RIBS‘ “Please Don’t Go” getting some early drive-time airplay. The former was our MP3 of the Week back in August, and the latter will take that high honor later this month before their Locrian Singles release party at TT The Bear’s Place on January 28 (don’t tip off competing news outlets, k?).
So yeah, in case you slept in (mad jellz) or had a board meeting or whatever it is that normal people do at 9am, check out an mp3 of the appearance below.
