264: Sunday Brunch

One of the very first listeners to contact us, all the way back when we were still a streaming 24/7 online radio station, was Greg (pictured above on the left), who played guitar for a ’90s band from Connecticut called Monsterland. Greg was stoked to have found our station (and to hear us playing his music) and promptly sent us a vinyl copy of his band’s out-of-print LP, “Destroy What You Love”. We’re happy to make Monsterland our cover stars this week and announce that they’ve reformed to play a benefit show for WFDU, a college station (!!), later this month and that their discography will soon be back in print. There are lots of big names in this week’s Brunch (per usual), but as always I want to make sure you are exposed to some possibly new-to-you groups, too. So check out Monsterland!
