Combo stubble and axle grease             KFSR DJ PROFILE

BRAD "THE SLAM" ROGERS

Brad's 2 biggest loves in life are his car -- an ugly 442, and his other car -- a 1951 Studebaker. Brad is an self-confessed Okie who went punk and finally settled on the Cramps. He got the name "SLAM" after he broke his glasses slam-dancing at the Translator concert. Being somewhat of a workhorse, Brad does 2 airshifts -- a Monday 12-4 Progressive show and the Memphis Jukebox conslameration of Rockabilly and Blues. Brad's major contribution to KFSR, besides serving as Program Director for a year, is his unique sense of humor, and his spelling. Brad is the only person who could misspell a stop sign -- but that's O.K., we still tolerate him.

ALBUM PICKS AND REVIEWS

TALKING HEADS - SPEAKING IN TONGUES:    "Tongues" experiments further with Blues, Soul, and Funk. The Heads manage to make every song on this album equally dancable, without becoming boring. For all Talking Heads enthusiasts -- well, actually for everyone. Destined to be one of the year's best albums. Check out the cassette for an extra track and extended versions of several songs. Standout Tracks: "This Must Be The Place," "Burning Down The House," "Girlfriend is Better."

-- K.I.R.K.

THE POLICE - SYNCHRONICITY:    Yes, the lyrics are depressing, and yes, MTV's hype-job is pathetic, but the Police have released yet another fine piece of vinyl art. Although it might take a few listenings, songs like "O My God," "King of Pain," and "Wrapped Around Your Finger" leave no doubt that The Police are still in the forefront of the new music movement.

-- Sydney

VIOLENT FEMMES - VIOLENT FEMMES    Acoustic Folk Punk with a 60's influence. Adventurous and innovative. A thoroughly unique debut album which succeeds through its sheer power, musical finesse and harshly realistic lyrics. Warning: not meant for queezy electro-pop ears. Standout cuts: All.
-- K.I.R.K.

R.E.M. - MURMUR    A hypnotic, dreamy trip into ringing guitars, driving drums and exquisite harmonies that is at once beautiful and powerful. And with music this incredible, who cares that you can't understand any of the words? Buy this album, you'll listen to it over & over & over & over & over & over. No bad tracks, but the best are: "Pilgrimage," "9-9," "Talk About the Passion"

-- Boy Wonder

SPARKS - IN OUTER SPACE    Even if you might barf if you hear "Cool Places again, still buy IN OUTER SPACE. It's perhaps the finest (and funniest) pop LP of the year. IN OUTER SPACE contains such glorious gems as "I Wish I Looked A Little Better," "Popularity," and "Please Baby Please."

-- Sydney

THE DIRECTIONS - ROCKIN' JAVE REVUE EP    Our favorite local band has put out a fine 4-song EP dominated by Paul Ruxton's unique keyboard sound. Standout Tunes: "The Ragged Edge," "Won't Do You No Good," "Emerald Isle," and "Lost (In The Land of Lonliness)."

-- Boy Wonder
AND KEEP YOUR EARS PEELED FOR: Elvis Costello - Punch The Clock, Men Without Hats - Rhythm of Youth & Tracie - "The House that Jack Built" (Single)
