On the new More Lost Time, music archivist Ric Dube shares a secret for dulling the sting of aging (hint: it involves being around people even older than yourself). Also, live music from the UK's legendary Jam, power pop by Scotland's the Questions, stoner rock by Dutch bands Dragonfly and Bag. The episode is sponsored by an offer for a record you may not borrow: "My brother, you've got to buy your own."
Host Ric Dube celebrates the 50th More Lost Time with rare punk by the Purple Hearts and Woody and the Splinters, neglected soul by the Temptations and the Foundations, and lost pop singles by the Uniques and the Next Exit. The value of designating official state rock and roll songs is addressed and mocked. Guests Jay Kumar (of the Completely Conspicuous podcast) and Jay Breitling (ClickyClickyMusic.com) drop by the studio to congratulate Ric on 50 podcasts.
On the first More Lost Time of 2013, host Ric Dube plays rare recordings by the usual broad range of acts including a pair of career re-defining cuts by Bo Diddley, '80s UK pop by the Bluebells, regretfully forgotten '70s punk by the Desperate Bicycles, lost '60s garage rock by the Todds, and unfamiliar 60's French novelty pop by Edouard. Also, a briefly notable supergroup of the late '70s that, while not particularly distinguishable from other acts of its sort, represents a method of charity fundraising wildly preferable to equipping Trick or Treaters with coin boxes. Listeners are encouraged to help grow the audience.
Music archivist Ric Dube selects rare music from his collection once again, including Huntington Beach punks the Crowd, Brighton UK's Emma Sharpe and the Features, and both sides of a lost soul 45 by Joe Matthews. Speaker melting guitar and organ garage rock by the Ultimates and Grapple is showcased and More Lost Time bids goodbye to its fall intern.

The latest More Lost Time features Dutch power trio Big Wheel, whose initial vocalist, Cyril Havermans, left to join Focus, and included in a later lineup guitarist Aad van der Kreeft, who’d left Blue Planet. Neither Havermans nor van der Kreeft are featured on the 45 featured on the podcast, though host Ric Dube pleads a case for using whatever trivia he could find. Listeners of the show are asked to research the origin of a famous lie from old TV commercials for mail order records. Other rare music included in this installment include cuts by Johnny Foreigner, Mary Timony, 60's garage rockers the Legends and Thursday's Children, and an acoustic track by Teenage Fanclub.
It's not THE Scorpions, it's just SCORPIONS, explains More Lost Time host Ric Dube, as a premise to spinning no records by the iconic German hard rock act. Instead it's rare pop by Bishop Allen and Banjo Spiders, funk and soul by the Counts and Brenton Wood -- and both sides of a lost 46 by Long Island legends, the Good Rats. Also, Mark Spitz and Paul Westerberg, in that order.
For what might the most globally diverse installment of More Lost Time yet, host Ric Dube plays rare recordings from Nova Scotia, Solihull (UK) -- as well as 60s Indonesian legends Dara Puspita. US acts are represented by Boston, Seattle, New York and where ever Mac Davis is from. That's right. Mac Davis.
For a Labor Day weekend installment of More Lost Time, record collector Ric Dube does not mention Labor Day even once, though he does point out that it has become easier to see a drive-in movie than shop for rare records. He also plays selections by Wales Wallace, the Ramones, the Miracle Workers, Vince Mole and his Calcium Orchestra, as well as Davy Jones. Not that Davy Jones, another Davy Jones. And not that other Davy Jones, a different one. Also, Dube attempts to defend a commonly maligned British Invasion act, with either successful or unsuccessful results, depending on how you look at it.
In the second of an ongoing Summer series of special More Lost Time shows in appreciation of the new book, "Big Day Coming: Yo La Tengo and the Rise of Indie Rock," solo music by YLT member James McNew is featured. It's worth a listen for the Ronettes cover alone, but there's a lot more than that.
In the latest More Lost Time, host Ric Dube recognizes the 20th anniversary of the Drop Nineteens debut, recalls Deep Wound, the Embarrassment, digs up a lost Joe Jackson single, showcases a pair of overlooked fuzz-drenched garage rockers and wonders why the Fall have never covered a Connie Francis tune.
