(Welcome to Something for the Weekend. What follows is a list of some of our shows, some shows that aren’t our shows, and some links from around the Internet that we think you’ll enjoy. Give them a listen/glance. Thank you.)
KARINA’S BACK: You Must Remember This makes a triumphant return with the first in a series on Charles Manson and Hollywood. The Sordidness Tracker had plenty of material, obviously.
THE TRIP: As referenced by Karina on the show, this trailer for Jack Nicholson and Peter Fonda’s The Trip is pure, uncut Sixties.
REJECTION: A Tiny Sense of Accomplishment is live from Infinite Guest’s hometown of St. Paul, Minnesota. MPR’s Kerri Miller grills Sherman and Jess about rejection, favorite books, and the Twin Cities.
THIS WEEK ON WITS: Fred Willard, Shinyribs, and Carrie Rodriguez, live from Austin, Texas.
NO TREBLE: Shinyribs’ cover of Meghan Trainor’s omnipresent “All About That Bass” is worth your time.(If you’ve not heard Kevin “Shinyribs” Russell’s former band, The Gourds, burn “Gin and Juice” to the ground, check that out as well.)
RECONSIDERING MID-PERIOD HEART: On The Soundtrack Series, Amber Drea tells a heartbreaking story about how a mid-’80s Heart song helped her through a not great part of her childhood. Plus, Dana tells the story of her “double” autograph from David Letterman.
REASONABLY WROTE: Reasonably Sound was a blog post instead of a podcast this week, and considered Vines that lodge themselves in Mike Rugnetta’s head. Like this one.
