Ben's in Seattle, resulting in a disastrous drop in random, wide-ranging conversations at Eclectic Kettle HQ. To make up the shortfall, Simon is filling talk breaks with surprising facts about Seattle.
Did you know that the 1962 World's Fair in Seattle included space-themed striptease shows? And that one was closed down briefly by the local board of censors due to "excessive gyration"? Neither did we! And now none of us will ever un-know that fact! You're welcome!
In between the Seattle knowledge-drops there's a ton of new music including the returns of Garbage, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Band of Horses, and a wonderful track from the African Island nation of Cabo Verde, whose origin story is bizarre, wonderful and almost impossible to believe.
