[Music] I noticed KRCL 90.9 has been playing a lot of Nick Drake recently--this afternoon Ebay Hamilton spun "One of These Things First," a lovely tune. It's been good to hear the beautiful finger-picking goodness of this morose, tragic English folkie. (Drake OD'ed on antidepressants in the 1970s, and his music did not become widely appreciated until sometime in the '80s.)
So I checked the playlists to make sure this wasn't just a trick of the imagination. Apparently, I wasn't dreaming: Drake is KRCL's "artist of the week." Until now, I didn't even know KRCL had an artist of the week, and I'm curious to know how this artist is selected.
But good on 'em for this week's fine selection.
