WTTS OverEasy, April 22, 2012

Comments Off 21 April 2012

This week on WTTS Overeasy, an ambitious new release from World Party. About as comprehensive as a B-side compilation can get, Arkeology is a career spanning, 5 CD collection of over 70 previously unreleased demos, covers, live sessions, and interviews. Brad Holtz will sample that this week, before revisiting the latest from Bonnie Raitt and Tedeschi Trucks Band.

As usual, he’ll thrown in a few Sun King Studio 92 tracks from our rapidly expanding vault, including Steven Page, KT Tunstall, and a more recent session with The Civil Wars. This Sunday, 7-11 AM and PM, it’s WTTS Overeasy.
