Suburban Dance Radio for June 23, 2020
The soundtrack to your suburban existence. Scrape those desiccated lizard parts off the grill dome and evict the raccoons that have taken over the she shed… It’s time to relax to a solid blend of post punk, jazz, funk, experimental, hip hop, blues, dub, noise rock and more. Sounds from across the ages and around the planet. Specializing in rare cuts that look good next to the ping pong table.
