The Real Congregation :: Wool Hat Optional! 11/08/2011
Nerdy Show is proud to welcome Marc With a C’s amazing radio show to its new home on the internet as a part of Nerdy Showcase! The Real Congregation is a weekly journey into Marc’s record collection and an amazing dose of music geekery. Look forward to new episodes every Tuesday, and if you’d like to check out his two-year run on the radio waves, just click here and dial up some past episodes. Now… I’ll pass the mic over to Marc!
Oh man! For the first episode of Season Two of The Real Congregation, Marc With a C is joined by Cap and Hex of Nerdy Show. Lots of discussion abounds, and the topics of the day include Michael Nesmith, Thomas Dolby’s new stuff, Hex geeking out about Oingo Boingo, The Evolution Control Committee’s “Wheel Of Mashup”, the new Beach Boy’s Smile Sessions box set, possibly the most odd Monkees reissue ever, plus our new segment, “Strange Record Of The Week”!
