This week’s show is kind of shameless, as I’ve already written about several of these songs for Popdose. Does that make this the podcast equivalent of a clip show?

The evidence, your honor.

Alphabeat, ”Boyfriend”

Cheap Trick, ”All We Need is a Dream”

The Second (or Third) Popdose Interview with Marshall Crenshaw

Lots of musical territory covered here, from bouncy pop to, well, more bouncy pop, to power pop, to yacht rock, to Brit pop, to a 2009 love letter to Burt Bacharach. Also, I talk way too much, and I’m sorry for that, but I had a lot to say this week. I’ll do better to keep my fool mouth shut going forward.

Oh, and the person I meant to mention in the second break, but didn’t: Alan Cumming. Dizzy Heights regrets the error.

Thank you, as always, for listening.
