Exploding Head Movies Episode September 17, 2012

XHM #133 - "But does he live in a garbage can?" (2012 September 17)

7:30am - 9:04am

Nilsson's soundtrack to Robert Altman's 1980 adaptation of Popeye anchors this flimsy vessel. Plenty of wacky Canadiana and other warped indie onboard. For a time, this set was going to be yet another easy listening episode, but a recent influx of new Canadian albums added to CITR's library provided the opportunity to mix this show up in a more fun manner.

Set sails for bewilderment!
