As you may know, Old 97’s were interviewed by David Dye of the World Cafe when they rolled through Philly back in December. That broadcast will air tomorrow, January 14 on WYEP in Pittsburgh from 6-7pm Eastern time. Fortunately, everyone can listen live via the station’s website here. If you miss this original broadcast, you can still track down the rebroadcast on 1/31.
To tide y’all over until that interview airs, here’s a little treat from the past. Young guns (circa 1996?) Old 97’s chatting up and charming KCRW’s Rancho Loco host, Liza Richardson. Besides hearing some rarely played tunes live (You Belong To My Heart, Dancing With Tears In My Eyes), you can witness Rhett tell of his crush for Exene Cervenka, touch a little on Ryan Adams and lots more fun stuff. Best of all, it’s a free download.
Get it from the nice folks at A Truer Sound here.
Enjoy. Thanks to devout Wrecker, Joslyn for the heads up on the download. Merci!
