The Bottomless Pit With Marshall Crenshaw For July 12

by Marshall Crenshaw

Voice of the Beehive

Tonight's "The Bottomless Pit" at 10 centers around the story and the music of the great songmakers, song stylists and record makers Voice of The Beehive, circa 1988-1992. They've been somewhat forgotten lately and are "underappreciated," but not by me. For my money, they deserve to be widely acknowledged in praiseful terms. Their stuff should be on clothing store soundsystems all over the world, causing people to say to themselves, "Wow, what great song is this?" or "Wow, I remember them! They were excellent!"

The group was founded and fronted by Tracey Bryn and Melissa Brooke Belland, two sisters from L.A. who ventured to London, England to launch their careers. In fact, it was in England where I first heard them on the radio, saw them on TV and bought their first album on a cassette.

On the show we'll also hear from some other Americans who took the same path over the years. The Belland sisters are from a musical/show business family and their story covers a lot of bases. That story, and their great music, are perfect fodder for "The Bottomless Pit."

And I hope you'll tune in for this edition of "The Bottomless Pit," tonight at 10pm EDT, on 90.7FM WFUV and streaming online.

You can also find The Bottomless Pit in the FUV archives for up to two weeks after broadcast.
