Love Is A Chain Store! Show tracks for Sat. Nov. 22/14

The return of Ride and S*M*A*S*H but in very different ways. Ride announcing a reunion tour with stops in Toronto and New York in early June. Let's hope for a more expansive US/Canada tour a little later in the year. S*M*A*S*H releasing a new EP "Without Regret", their first new material in a few years as far as I can tell. See below.
Also, another themed Mixtape Memories as we delve into the 4AD back catalogue. I do love Sloppy Heart!
*PROGRAM NOTE* Next week's show will be one hour shorter due to a Lancer Sports broadcast. So next week we start at 10PM and will forgo the Northern Soul spotlight and Mixtape Memories segments for one week. They will return Dec. 6th as return to our 9PM start time.
