And here, I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW Alice Cooper had a syndicated radio show. After Little Steven's (Van Zandt) Underground Garage, and the subsequent Satelite-radio signings (Dylan, Petty), and terrestrial radio catastrophes (Diamond Dave), I thought we'd seen the tail end of aging-rocker turned DJ.
Now, Ms. Sykes, according to her MySpace, claims to be a fan of said show -- she must hear it on the road, as it's not broadcast on any Seattle-area stations -- and is expecting to hear a Sweet Hereafter track on Cooper's set on Thanksgiving (that's tomorrow, and it's too late to start thawing a turkey. trust me).
Sykes, via a MySpace Message: "We are happy to announce that one of our songs will be appearing on Alice Cooper's syndicated radio show on Thanksgiving Day...we often listen to this show when we are on tour, and get a real kick out of it-so tune in if you can-it's pretty funny!"
Bellingham's KISM carries the show, and you can hear it streaming on the station's web site. BTW, while listening this morning, I heard the DJ note that they'll also be spinning Alice's Restaurant in its entirety at 9 a.m. tomorrow.
