ROB SEZ: Not every radio station is loaded with money to archive their live sessions in the highest quality. It's hard to criticize the non-commercial WFMU in New Jersey, since they do such a great job promoting amazing lesser-known bands like Philadelphia's Bigger Lovers. Even though the webstreams I recorded are lower quality than usual, they're still worth a careful listen — and where else can you find live material by these guys? If you like Big Star and more recent bands like Waxwings, you might want to know about Bigger Lovers. Hot tip: Haper's got more goodies by this band at his Popfair blog.
