LISTEN: The Big Beat 'cast 42

Nearly a dozen artists make their first appearance in the 'cast this week including ANDREW BIRD, BEACH FOSSILS, SCUBA, BARRY ADAMSON, ADMIRAL FALLOW, ROYAL BATHS, THE MARY ONETTES, FRANKIE ROSE, FAST YEARS, KINNIE THE EXPLORER, and M.I.A. My Wild Card pick is from another artist that’s probably never been heard on DIY Radio before. They just released their first album in nearly 15 years. I hope you'll listen to find out who it is. Just press play & let 'er rip.

By the way, if you ever want to listen to a previous TBB show, hit the DIY Radio link on the upper right side of the page. The last 6 months worth of shows are there. You can also look at my KUT playlists (no archived audio, sorry) and coming soon, I'll try to have all of my Amazing Radio shows stored in one place. Until then, just look for 'em on the blog.

On another note, The Big Beat Facebook page just passed 400 'Likes'. Thank You!
