For this episode of Songs of Our Lives, I invite Marc Masters on the show! When I think about music writers that cover experimental music and sound in the margins, Marc is the first name on the team sheet. His new book, “High Bias: The Distorted History of the Cassette Tape” is out now and is essential reading for the heads. On this episode, we wonder how The Eels’ friend Fred died, pizza-themed cover songs, the greatness of Syl Johnson, The Velvet Underground, and loads more!
Songs of Our Lives is a podcast series hosted by Brad Rose of Foxy Digitalis that explores the music that’s made us and left a certain mark. Whether it’s a song we associate with our most important moments, something that makes us cry, the things we love that nobody else does, or our favorite lyrics, we all have our own personal soundtrack.
