Part 2 of my conversation with guest Brian Salvatore as we look back at the music of 1996. I've also got music from King Tuff, Purling Hiss and Young Adults.

Show notes:

- Recorded via Skype

- Check out Brian's comics podcast The Hour Cosmic

- Brian: Beck's Odelay was just outside my top 5

- New album's okay, but not great

- Brian: Cake, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Wrens' Secaucus

- The endless wait for the new Wrens album

- Brian was supposed to play piano with the Wrens but got sick

- Sticking up for Stone Temple Pilots' album

- Jay: STP were equal opportunity ripoff artists

- The '90s brought new wave of festivals: Lolla, Gathering of the Vibes, HORDE, Ozzfest

- Jay: No desire to go to Bonnaroo or Coachella

- Nothing better than seeing a band in a club

- Jay: Dug albums from D Generation, Sebadoh, Luscious Jackson, Johnny Cash, Chixdiggit, Brainiac, GBV, Maxwell, Westerberg

- Singing the praises of Live at Drew's

- Brian: Belle and Sebastian, Bill Frisell

- Frisell did the soundtrack to a Far Side cartoon

-  To be continued
