RA/OR 164 - THE ONLY ONES





Another band, another episode. The Only Ones had something special, but they came along at a time when it was difficult to stand out and easy to implode. Yet as you'll hear on this episode the band made some great music in the short time that it existed.

RA/OR 163 - NILS LOFGREN





Nils Lofgren got his first record deal before he was out of his teens and he made four records with that band, Grin, before launching a solo career in 1975 with one of the best records of that decade. Although he never matched the quality of his first solo record Lofgren has had a long and very respectable career as a songwriter and as a member of the E Street Band. Listen as BJ plays his favorites from the Nils Lofgren discography.
