love & the needing of it: the frow show’s 2012 WFMU marathon premium


I’m thrilled (and I mean, thrilled) to announce The Frow Show’s 2012 WFMU Marathon Premium: Love & The Needing Of It: A no-fi adventure in international love-needing.

Same sentiment, same name, hundreds (maybe thousands) of different songs titled “I Need Your Love” span continents, genres, and decades. “Love & The Needing of It” whittles it down to 19, leaving out the crappy Macedonian pop, though including the New Zealand disco. It ignores Elvis Presley and The Ramones, but has the infamous Nirvana (UK) and Jeff “Don’t Call Me Jeff Lynne” Lynn of Swedish fuzz-rockers The Wizards, and a host of local singles from Jamaica, Baltimore, South Africa, and beyond, all presented with the stunning no-fi compression one has come to expect from globe-spanning YouTube treasure hunts. Just in time for Valentine’s Day 2013 or any mixes you might make before then! Significant others Thanks to Rich Arcoleo for the great cover art.
