Left of the Dial “The Stay -at- Home Astronaut”

Written by on October 6, 2018

Tune back into Left of the Dial, as we journey through deep cuts from the classic age of vinyl and beyond. Another delectably interesting smorgasbord to choose from, our selections range from the bygone era of 60’s Garage Rock burgeoning into a new psychedelia (The ByrdsThe Electric Prunes), Outlaw Country western tall-tales (Lorne Greene and his dastardly tale of Ringo; the fastest hand in the West) and some quirky cover renditions of beloved songs, most notably The Cardigans and their Swedish Bossa-Nova interpretation of a Black Sabbath megahit.


So buckle in and disengage, another episode of Left of the Dial is here to stay.

And for all of our streaming moguls out there, LotD has a Spotify featuring every song featured on the program.
