After two very successful albums as Bahamas, Canadian singer-songwriter and guitarist Afie Jurvanen is stepping out from behind the curtain to reveal his most self-assured album yet. Bahamas is Afie is a breezy collection of songs that are perfect for the late summer. Ahead of the release of the album (which is out tomorrow), Afie and his band performed an FUV Live show for a crowd of WFUV Marquee members at Rockwood Music Hall, which you can listen to right here.

Bottomless

by Rich Conaty

Not long ago, a "Big Broadcast" listener, a retired pharmacist from Fishkill, passed away. We'd met a few times. And he kindly gave me a two volume "Dance Band" discography, even a spare three-speed turntable. We even had a preliminary chat regarding his record collection. (Nowadays, people ask me if I've made "arrangements" for my collection, and wish they'd stop!) The next contact was from his widow. The other day I filled my station wagon with around 1000 records, and that's just the first trip.

On UKNY at 11 tonight, cool new British releases from a diverse batch of artists, like Scottish luminaries and Nirvana favorites The Vaselines; French-warbling, Glasgow-based chanteuse Ella the Bird (pictured); Birmingham's Laura Mvula, backed by a 52-piece Dutch orchestra; and London's Grumbling Fur, a duo that's neither tetchy or hirsute—but definitely psychedelic.

The Bottomless Pit With Marshall Crenshaw For August 16

Doc Pomus

On "The Bottomless Pit" tonight at 10, a one-hour salute to one of the greatest of the greats, songwriter Doc Pomus (1925-1991, born Jerome Solon Felder). I had great respect and admiration for Doc and was a friend of his for many years. He wrote and co-wrote some of the best and most beloved songs of all time, and lived a life that was absolutely epic. I encourage you to see, as soon as you can, the outstanding movie "AKA Doc Pomus," directed by Peter Miller and Will Hechter and edited by Amy Linton. If you enjoy books, there's the great biography Lonely Avenue by Alex Halberstadt, which is a real spellbinder.
