We at Respect is Due are back in action... well, at least for this week. Next week's show and the week after's will be canceled due to Spring Break over at CMU. But what's important, at least for now, is that there is no sports pre-emptions anymore.
Today's playlist was standard and straightforward compared to other shows. I have, however, been digging through the 7" singles part of the library more often than I used to, and trying to play more singles I've never heard before instead of just looking for "Frog" by Versus yet again. Granted, "Frog" is an awesome song, and Versus are an awesome and fitting addition to the K/International Pop Underground canon. I just play it too much, probably because "Frog"'s never been released (to my knowledge) in any other way except for on one 7" single. And you can guess what the next thing I'm going to say is: I don't know of any other place you can hear stuff like this on the air except for this show.
By the way, if you do know of any good college radio shows that play the type of old-school indie rock I tend to play, please tell me. A lot of the music I listen to I learned about due to a number of great shows (most of which aren't around anymore, sadly) on Boston College's still-excellent WZBC that played lots of British post-punk and shoegaze as well as '90s American indie.
