XHM #33 - "I'm coco for cuckoo clocks" (2010 September 06)

7:28am - 9:02am

Anton Karas' zither score to the 1949 film The Third Man gets a spotlight, along with similar plucked strings or guitar instrumentals. A profile on Pavement appears along with the usual motley assemblage. Happy Labour Day, y'all. This episode should have been brought to you by fried chicken and beer but the sponsors bolted. Or stores were closed.

These are the latest tales from Vancouver.
