It's time for episode 86 of Love That Album podcast.....which is also part 2 of the end-of-year special with the other members of the Shooting The Shit Crew to discuss favourite first time listens in 2015.

 

 

This time around, I am joined by LTA regular contributor Eric Peterson in Ann Arbor, and ardent Springsteen fan Geoff Smith from the northern end of Melbourne. I merely mediate this time.

 

 

Like episode 85 where I was joined by Michael Pursche and Tim Merrill, versatility is the keyword here. Geoff and Eric's selections are wildly different, but all worthy of your consideration. Join us, won't you?

 

 

Since this is the final episode of 2015, I want to say a big thank you to anyone who participated in an episode or made the time to listen to an episode this year. I hope you'll continue to do so in 2016.

 

 

You can download the show by searching for Love That Album in the iTunes store or downloading streaming directly from  http://lovethatalbum.blogspot.com

 

 

Send the show feedback at rrrkitchen@yahoo.com.au (written or mp3 voicemail) or join the Facebook group at http://www.facebook.com/groups/lovethatalbum.

 

 

If you’d consider writing an iTunes review or recommending the show to a friend, I’d be immensely grateful.

 

 

If you enjoy what you hear, please tell a friend or ten to tune in.

It's time for Eric's final Compilation Edition LTA for 2015. I'll let him describe it.

 

 ****************************************************

 

For the most part I use these compilation editions to highlight soundtracks, Comp album, boxsets and all that jazz… but this time around I have used this episode to play a bunch of tracks from various bands that I haven’t been able to fit into either the Compilation Editions or my Album I Love Segments.  This play list covers a range of Garage Punk tunes, some power pop, and a few Hard Rock and Lite Metal tunes. Some of these were songs of the moment in their day, others are underground or local classics and a few are just gems that have yet to be embraced. So sit back, listen, enjoy.

It’s December, so it must be time for another Love That Album end-of-year Shooting The Shit session.

 

In case you’re not familiar with the term, LTA has done a small number of panel shows under the Shooting The Shit moniker. We haven’t held a more general discussion in a long while, but the tradition holds that we do our “favourite first time listens of the year” show. As long as the panellists heard a particular album for the first time in 2015 (regardless of the year of release), it’s up for discussion.

 

Because the crew is comprised of 6 of us, we’re doing this over two shows so you’re not listening for 4 hours straight!!! For episode 85, and the first of the STS faves specials, I am joined by my See Hear co-host Tim Merrill and Sitting In a Bar In Adelaide podcast host, Michael Pursche. We offer 5 albums each for your consideration as our favourite first time listens in 2015. Let me tell you folks, the key word here is “diversity”. There are a range of styles on offer here, so there will be something that will appeal to all tastes.

 

I even have some feedback from listeners as to their favourite albums of the year. I love getting feedback for the same reason Sally Field loves getting Academy Awards….

 

Episode 86 will be part 2 of the end-of-year shows, and will be online in a couple of weeks. That will feature Geoff Smith, John Stirrat, and Eric Reanimator giving their well-considered choices.

 

My thanks to my co-presenters for taking the time to record these shows with me, and my thanks to anyone who listens to the shows. There are a lot of podcasts out there to demand your time, so if you’ve let me into your headphones, I’m grateful to be included a part of your listening schedule.
