Question of the Day: Addicted to Love

by Corny O'Connell

Last week when we asked for songs about being sick, several listeners suggested songs about addiction. So let's explore that topic today. There are songs about drug addiction and there are songs that compare love to addiction. Either fit the bill. Let us know what you want to hear in the comments below. We'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Aimee Mann "I Was Thinking I Could Clean Up for Christmas"

Jane's Addiction "Jane Says"

John Fullbright - Sunday Breakfast - 2014

by John Platt

John Fullbright, the prodigiously talented young folksinger from Woody Guthrie's hometown, Okemah, OK, has been winning fans (along with a Grammy nomination) with the power of his songwriting and his performances. But he hasn't let the acclaim go to his head, just concentrating on his craft. He shared his thoughts about that and performed three songs (including a deep blues cover) in this return visit to Studio A.

Question of the Day: Musical Band Names

Tonight at 9 we've got a session from our studios to get you better acquainted with the band tUnE-yArDs. Despite the unusual use of upper and lowercase letters, the band follows the tradition of using a musical term in its name. That's been done by everyone from the the Chordettes to the Beatles to Ziggy Marley & the Melody Makers. Can you think of any others? Note them below and we'll spin a set after 9am. 

Here's what we played:

The Meters "Cissy Strut"

FUV's New Dig: Spoon

by Russ Borris

Spoon
They Want My Soul
Loma Vista Records

You may not even realize it, but Spoon is a twenty-year-old band. They got together in Austin, Texas in late 1993, and they've spent years forging their identity and honing their craft as they watched other indie rock darlings come and go.
