It may be a cliche, but it's certainly no exaggeration when I
say that we've got a fantastic show for you this week. Not
only do we have six great tracks from The
World Famous Scraps, but also a great interview that is
both witty and
intelligent. How often does that happen simultaneously around
here? Top that off with our favorite co-host, the inimitable
Jenn Cristy -- just to add a little sizzle to the show -- and
you've got a recipe for an hour of auditory bliss.
The World Famous Scraps (aka: The Scraps ... formerly known as
The Binkleys ... occasionally known as Odang) are a three-piece
punk/rock/indie band from Bloomington in the fine tradition of
anti-establishment, anti-corporate, observational-based lyrics
played against an angry tongue-in-cheek barrage of power cords and
up-tempo drum bashing. The interview, recorded at the IU
Student Union in Bloomington, covers everything from their
political and environmental views, to crazy road stories, studio
nightmares, roller derby, and a few interesting little personal
tidbits that you may find entertaining.

this year. I believe is a record amount of air-time, thus we've
officially made her part of the staff here -- which is possibly the
only job that pays worse than "Original
Music Artist in Indiana."
