Iowa Basement Tapes #10 9-6-2018 | Guest: Luke Dickens

Night Listeners of 98.9FM KFMG –

It’s September and it is our tenth week on air. Who could have imagined I could keep this up for this long? Most of my friends can’t, but that’s OK. This week I have Luke Dickens on the program who recently opened the doors to his own record shop in the Beaverdale neighborhood in Des Moines called Vinyl Cup. Luke brings a playlist of tunes that I have never played on the show before. I felt like the odd man out as he and studio manager Gary Monte connected on their mutual love for Catfish Keith. Luke’s choices are a breath of fresh air, although I disagree with him on the idea that William Elliot Whitmore is underappreciated… especially among his lady fans. So to offset his playlist I spin some tracks from Captain Three Leg, Broken Ones, and Fetal Pig. Also, a long forgotten band called Beef Wellington from Cedar Rapids makes their debut tonight.
