In this week’s edition of Saturday Night Shut-In Mr. Moderator needs to keep his mouth shut. Sorry, kids, but this week’s episode is a music-only editon as your host gives his usual ROCKTOBER nasal drip a rest. It was a cool week in the Hall, featuring an interview with critic Simon Reynolds, the pros and cons of Nick Lowe’s latest album, rock’s most over-the-top box sets, an ongoing Last Man Standing that cannot be described without the use of adjectives, and the Internet’s first-ever discussion of rockers we’d most entrust to grill a steak. I’d love to discuss this and other recent happenings with you tonight, but trust me, I’m nothing without my dulcet tones. Instead, enjoy this mix of everything from Simply Saucer to Sleater-Kinney t0 Jon Hassell to Moondog to The Lovin’ Spoonful to Beulah to Charles Mingus. I promise to have my voice back in working order next week, when I broadcast episode 50 “LIVE” from San Franciso!
