Iowa Basement Tapes #30 1-24-2019

Night Listeners –

Welcome to episode 30 of Iowa Basement Tapes and two new radio stations: KWIT 90.3FM & KOJI 90.7FM on Siouxland Public Media which covers the western Iowa area of Sioux City, northeastern Nebraska and the southeast edge of South Dakota. I’m stoked to be hitting their listeners every Friday night from 11PM to midnight. Don’t forget you can also listen to the show every Thursday from 9PM to 10PM on 98.9FM KFMG in Des Moines and KCOE Coe College in Cedar Rapids. Lots of new material for tonight’s show and I’d also like to finally share with everyone the Iowa Basement Tapes Bandcamp Archive. I was inspired by the archives on and the pages to curate my own collection of musical artifacts. Many of these recordings have already been heard on the show once or twice before but there are some new ones. If anyone would like to send over any recordings for me to add please do! The purpose is to preserve and circulate these recordings so they don’t fall away into that great black hole that we all are aware of…
