Track 11: the Mr. T Experience – Up and Down
Someone on Mastodon posted about this album recently, reminding of my first radio show back in Ohio. Many many many years ago I was playing a tape recording of my radio show for my mom, and when this track came on she said “Oh you used to love this song when you were little.” At the time I was confused, as I had no idea it was a cover of a Sesame Street song 🙂

Found via WFMU’s Heavily Played Records list.
Track 13: Braid – Never Will Come for Us (Remastered 2023)
A throw back track to my late 90s era radio show, apparently Braid remastered this album and are on tour playing it.
