Lo-Fi Groovy

Updated: Jun 26


This week's Show Is Called Lo-Fi Groovy.

It is a Better Than K-tel show, which means it is an all-indie show, With Music From The Mommyheads, The Church, Love, And Rockets & More. This mix has a very special Churchie Blend and features new and old music from artists featured on some of my first “Better Than K-tel Mixes” from back in the day.

Originally, “Better Than K-Tel” was the name of a weekly mixtape I made for friends. It has always been a Mix of Old and New music that I want to share and chat about.

Back In The Day, K-Tel made cheap Mixtapes & Records. They were known as the least expensive way to buy all the popular songs you would hear on the radio.

I started making these mixtapes when I started listening to more alternative music and trying to convert my friends. I was hoping to get them interested in Newer Music. “Better Than K-Tel” was born.

Later, this became a Weekly Blog List and a Mix CD I would Share with friends.  I started to have more and more friends in indie bands, and I would often share some of my new favorite songs that my musician friends gave me.

I am EXCITED to share some of my favorite bands with you; most of these go way back to when I was in High School and College. The newer bands I am playing today are related in some way to the older bands. Do you know how?
