Modcast #494: The Triple Play

Modcast 494 The Triple PlayIt's the end of the season, the pennant race is on, the fall classic is looming. So, of course I had to call up some ringers to talk baseball and music.

Modcast #493: Diver Down

Modcast #493: Diver DownYou know the artists but do you remember these tracks? I've got deep cuts from the back catalogs of some of our favorite bands on this week's show. These are the songs that often get forgotten, or overshadowed by the bigger hits. We all know their hits, everyone knows their popular albums, and the true fans will know a lot of the back catalog for all the bands here, I'm sure. But I'm guessing even those diehards don't play many of these tracks very often.

The Who -- The Good's Gone (1965)
The Jetset -- The Wheel's Of Love (1986)
The Decibels -- It's Not Me (2018)
The Beatles -- Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey (1968)
Ocean Color Scene -- I Told You So (2007)
The Creation -- Midway Down (1968)
Georgie Fame & The Blue Fames -- Bend A Little (1964)

The Ramones -- Today Your Love, Tomorrow The World (1977)
The Standells -- Our Candidate (1966)
The Heartdrops -- Coming Back (1999)
Squeeze -- Vicky Verky (1980)
Oasis -- Step Out (1995)
