I was really sad to hear about Trish Keenan’s untimely death today. I am a fan of Broadcast and was always curious to learn more. There choice of album titles always impressed me and even gave me a good chuckle now and then. Names like Broadcast & The Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age
surely require a chance and time on your media player.
Here is a very good write-up on her, her performances, and the feelings she created in many. MUSIC: RIP Trish Keenan | The Spectator
