A Fistful Of Vinyl

Alec and John are just two dudes who love folk, punk, and especially folk-punk. On their radio show (Mondays at 11pm PST) they enjoy creating and sharing playlists, giving away free tickets to concerts and events, hosting guests for interviews and performances, and meandering conversation that sometimes approaches profundity. Or maybe they just talk in circles and they’re flattering ourselves. Any

Hey it's the one time a year where we ask for donations on behalf of @kxlu - literally the best independent, commercial free, public, student run, freeform, major hyphen label hyphen influence hyphen free terrestrial & online radio station.

Tune in, give what you can afford to give to an awesome cause, get some awesome KXLU thank-you gifts from us, and then act all superior to your friends because you donated to such a worthy endeavor.

Seriously though, KXLU is one of the last stations of its kind, and like we've all seen with DIY venues, when one goes away, it tends not to come back. So let's keep KXLU, and the best goddamn radio station around alive another year!

NEW EPISODE TONIGHT AT 9PM!

What's new you ask? Well if you listen tonight, you'll hear some good news in the realm of this show. Aside from that, personally, I'm excited to be experimenting with this new formatting option. I just learned that you can bold things on Instagram. Look at that! Tell me you're not psyched about that. Well if you're not psyched about formatting, at least be psyched about the playlist. Look down now.

Pre-recording is fun, and lets me do some stuff I can't do live, but in earnest, I miss the hell out of KXLU Los Angeles 88.9 FM. I haven't been in the station in like 20 months. I haven't done a live episode in 20 months.

I don't know when it will be, but I'm looking forward to the day I can go back and do live radio again.

Until then, the episode I recorded last night is broadcasting Thursday.

Tonight's playlist (hear it live 9p Pacific on @kxlu ), and a totally unrelated pic of me getting followed around by a gaggle of chickens. They accepted me as their leader, briefly. Is a gaggle the correct collective noun (googles...) Ah, a *brood* of chickens.

I guess it's not totally unrelated since I'm wearing my #kxlu tank top. Don't ask me where to get them - it's from like 2006 and I'm pretty sure me and @danielguydude are the only two people who still have them.

Onwards and upwards comrades! • • • • • • #afistfullofvinyl #kxlu #heartbreakforheroes #crisisactor #band #new #tracks #radio #punk #rock #punkrock #postpunk #alternativerock #alternative #la #losangeles
I have a question. Whenever I whatch any of your videos, YouTube offers me yo buy your merch on Teespring. Is it really yours? Do you get anyhing out of it? Those are two questions... I wouldn't mind having a AFoV hoodie. Thanks
Our friends at KXLU Los Angeles 88.9 FM’s A Fistful Of Vinyl filmed an awesome live session during Laura Jane Grace & The Devouring Mothers' soundcheck last year. Check out "The Airplane Song" below.
New A Fistful Of Vinyl live, baby. I think this is the most personal performance Frank's ever done. SHARE WITH EVERYONE so the world can fu***ng see Frank is someone to respect. Hobo Johnson live session X A Fistful of Vinyl
Hey, so I rediscovered a band I used to listen to all the time and forgot about, Little Ghost Things. I wanted to see if they ever had side projects or had more releases other than their self-titled, but I found nothing. They basically don't exist on the internet except the album upload by someone unrelated on YouTube. I did see that y'all played a song from their self-titled (The Girl with Photo Emulsion Hair), so I was wondering if you knew anything. That self-titled was so, so, so good
Hi, Friends. We wanted bring a song back that we haven't played in a little while but that means a lot to us. "Don't Wait Up" was written for our self-titled record - and we almost left it off. It's about the civil rights struggles that have been raging in our country for centuries, and how it affects families, especially the trauma experienced between sons and fathers. Now more than ever, stories matter. Words matter. Cheers to A Fistful Of Vinyl for shooting and editing live at our beloved Troubadour. Were you there with us in February? If you grab our album on Bandcamp today all proceeds go directly to the band: https://dustbowlrevival.bandcamp.com/... https://thedustbowlrevival.bandcamp.com/
