Radio Kampus. 9th August 2017

It’s become a slightly annoying trait over the last month or so that the podcasts have been getting later and later – this very one is 3 weeks late, and once I get it up, I’ve another two to get up. So I owe the world – or more specifically, the small band of listeners – an apology.

This show features some great new music including Mr. Postal Service covering Bellshill’s finest; and in memoriam; something from Glen Campbell.

1. Benjamin Gibbard – The Concept (Atlantic)

2. Muzyka Końca Lata – Gorzej już nie może być (Thin Man)

9. Daughter – Burn It Down (Glassnote)

10. Glen Campbell – Wichita Lineman (Capitol)
