Dulli ABC Interview

You can check out an interview with Greg Dulli on ABC (Australia) radio online. Highlights include a discussion of the Afghan Whigs opening up for the Flaming Lips in 1987. Hard to imagine Greg as Wayne Coyne’s roadie. You even get a little bit of Clyde (Greg’s cat) chiming in at the end of the piece, which was cut short due to neighborhood evacuations in response to the November wildfires.

Happy Birthday Greg!

To celebrate, pour yourself a glass of Maker’s Mark, or mix up a Greg Dulli cocktail, put on the May 10, ’96 Portland Show (in which Greg begins celebrating at midnight), and invite over the neighbors. Enjoy. -Thanks to Mala for the reminder!

WOXY Memories

WOXY, Cincinnati’s alternative rock format radio station, is leaving the airwaves this week. The station hoped to carry on in internet-only format; but monetary restraints are preventing that from happening. WOXY has been a big supporter of local boys The Afghan Whigs and continued to spin Dulli with The Twilight Singers. The Cincinnati Enquirer is running a story called WOXY Memories today.
