The Beatles -- Help!

A Labor Of Love Has Given Birth To A Radio Show, Accidental Nostalgia.

March 13, 2009. – FULL FRONTAL LOBE, USA - “I like the built-in nostalgia of vinyl - whether it's a 1964, Top 40, one-hit wonder or a super rare, private press, psychedelic LP” said co-host Norm Geddis.

He’s been collecting records since he got kicked out of a record store in 1978 for trying to order "Black Market Clash". Norm met his wife, Jane, a Grateful Dead concert in 1985.

Twenty-four years later, they’re the owners of Counter-Clock Records, an eBay store, which houses a vast collection of records, mostly 45s.

Jane and Norm buy collections from individuals, closed record stores and from eBay. Their tastes are eclectic and intuitive. They look through a stack of records and sense what's interesting, unusual, weird . . . just enjoyable. Norm has an encyclopedic knowledge of music history, but their show is far from esoteric.

Featuring random juxtapositions , unusual pairings and occasional divine accidents, each show is a voyage of discovery interspersed with short music news segments and trivia.

“We have something unique and something we're proud of. We play what we find. I call the programming style Accidental Nostalgia," said Jane.

"I'll do artists like Etta James, Grateful Dead, Joni Mitchell, The Band, Bill Monroe, Renaissance, Mazzy Star, Opal, Joan Armatrading, CSNY," Jane continued. "While Norm stirs in the Moody Blues, Sandi Sheldon Small Faces, Pink Floyd, The Intruders and hundreds of others . We never know what the result will sound like until we play it.”

"The community record store used to be a hub for music lovers. You got to browse, explore, chart and share.” said Norm. “The Internet cannot deliver that. We can’t begin to replace the chill up your spine dirty tile smell of your record store, but we can begin to replace the sense of community and shared interests.”

And that’s the goal of Accidental Nostalgia weekly Thursday Nights at 7:00 starting March 19th only on Radio Dentata.

Jack White unveils two new projects in Nashville

White has opened a brand new downtown office for Third Man Records and revealed his new band, Dead Weather

written by Matt Kappel

Jack White constantly keeps himself busy. Some would think that, between handling a record company, The White Stripes and The Raconteurs, that activity would be enough. However, this is clearly not enough for this rock great. White unveiled two new projects in his hometown of Nashville, TN this week.

White has opened a downtown location for Third Man Records, his record company that has offered White Stripe and Raconteur releases. This new location will also come equipped with an office for the label, a vinyl record store, photo studio/dark room and a rehearsal space.

White’s second project will take him from usual front-man position and sit him behind the drum kit. The new band is called Dead Weather and the members of the band all come from various places.

Alison Mosshart of The Kills will take over singing duties, Jack Lawrence of the Raconteurs will handle the bass and Dan Fertita of both the Raconteurs and Queens of the Stone Age will man the guitar. White has produced the first LP entitled Horehound being released on Third Man Records in June 2009, according to Rolling Stone.

Dead Weather performed a five song set for close friends in the new rehearsal space at Third Man Records just to give people a little taste of what’s to come.

The new band will carry-on more of that blues rock sound. It will include the volatile drumming people that people have come to love from White’s other projects. The band’s inception is pretty neat as well. According to, White had bronchitis at the end of his tour with the Raconteurs. Instead of ruining his voice, he brought Mosshart on to sing his parts, specifically “Steady as She Goes.” There was so much energy and love it spawned a new band. They would visit each other and discuss music and eventually the idea to release a seven-inch record was born.
