Episode 8: Talking Big Star with Don Thrasher
Release Date: 08/23/2017
This episode features the triumphant return of Don Thrasher. Thrasher has written about music in Dayton, Ohio since the early 1990s. He has also played drums for influential bands like Swearing at Motorists and Guided by Voices. He currently mans the skins for Smug Brothers.
Under the microscope this time: Big Star’s 1970s albums. Thrasher begins with a thorough history of the band and talks about why he loves them so much. Album discussions include: “#1 Record” (29:26), “Radio City” (39:50) and “Third/Sister Lovers” (45:46).
