Today’s show lets you hear and compare original British and American mono Rolling Stones records with the new The Rolling Stones in Mono box set.

The idea was to produce a show exclusively from old, gnarly-sounding 45 played back on a modest turntable to truly reproduce how "Boomers" heard their music at home. "Cleaned up" and sterilized on CD is just not the same. Then came the grim news that both Leonard Cohen and Leon Russell had passed away.

"Bob Dylan" stops by the WFDU-HD2 studios to talk with AnalogPlanet editor "Michael Fremer" about his Nobel Prize for Literature and his career. The "two" spin records and Bob recollects leaving Hibbing, MN for Minneapolis, Chicago and then New York City.

Today's AnalogPlanet radio show is mostly sourced from a cassette mix tape I made in the mid-seventies. I pulled it out of a box and transferred it to CDs for use in my Pilates class after the others in the class complained about what my iPhone shuffle program dredged up, which often included dark Scott Walker songs.

Today's AnalogPlanet Radio Show makes a great soundtrack for tonight and tomorrow. All of the songs are either obliquely or directly political. Many are Rorschach test type tunes that can be taken "either way" while others are clearly targeted.

(Originally aired October, 2016) Perfect for playing tonight when the kids come Trick-or-Treating! Includes a tribute to the late John Zacherle and includes excerpts from his Philly and New York television shows. Enjoy! (Picture: John Zacherle and me, meatpacking district 1980 something or other).

The great Glyn Johns produced and engineered Eric Clapton’s upcoming album all-analog. It was recorded to 2 inch tape, mixed to ½ inch tape and Bernie Grundman cut lacquers from the tape—this according to my friend Tom Biery.

Prince gone at 57? Who would have thought? There was just enough time to put together this mostly vinyl-sourced show, paying tribute to the one-of-a-kind Prince (image is of wall outside First Avenue club).

This week's Analogplanet radio show can be streamed here or on the website. The concept was to play a classical music excerpt followed by a rock, jazz or pop tune that was influenced (or in some cases lifted) by that track.

This week’s Analogplanet radio show celebrates spring Perusing the spring related songs in the record collection demonstrated that many were tinged with melancholy and sadness, which was not at all what was expected.

As you’ll hear, I woke up the other morning with, for some reason, thoughts of WTFM, the first FM radio station in the New York metropolitan area to broadcast in multiplex stereo.

This week’s show features songs about dreams. Unbelievably, the library does not contain either “Sweet Dreams” by The Eurythmics or “Dream Weaver” by Gary Wright. While “Dream” by The Everly Brothers was supposed to be included, an editing error omitted it as you’ll hear. Due to time issues, there are a few more than usual digital clips for which I apologize.

While the name of today’s show is “Peter, Paul & Mary”, it doesn’t feature any of that folk group’s songs. Instead, the songs are by artists whose name begins with either Peter, Paul or Mary. Also there are a few songs with Mary in the title and one, with a “Paul” name and a “Mary” in the lyrics (I’m sure you can figure out which that is!).

Spend a few hours with editor Michael Fremer as he spins David Bowie vinyl from original American, UK, German and Japanese pressings along with a few reissues.
