    Covers of BK music

    Pretty rad, dude! I wish I could find people to play BK and Raidsh songs with around here.

    Re-Release of Radish on streaming

    That's a VERY good question. What say ye, @Ben?

    Radish vinyl reissues

    He keeps saying he's going to release more Radish stuff, but I don't know what the timeline for that would be. Best case scenario would be after this album cycle. At the very least he could make Hello and Dizzy available digitally, but there very well could be bigger things on the horizon, but not any time soon I don't think.
  5. I'm sure @Ben can answer the Melange and Bromeo questions. As far as Caddo Mills and Discount go, any physical copies are just burned copies as far as I know. No actual mass-produced copies exist that I've ever heard about.

    Favorite Covers by BK

    The first time I saw Radish they played "Mickey" (the big Toni Basil hit from the 80s) which morphed into a song that went "When I grow up I wanna be a surfer" which sounded like a cover, but I can't confirm. @Ben, what song was that?

    Your First Love (Musically Speaking)

    That's cool that Weezer fans helped to get other fans into BK/Radish. I was never a huge Weezer fan, but a few years ago, some friends of mine recruited me to play drums in a Weezer tribute band, so I started really delving into their music (or at least the songs I was learning). I was amazed by how much Weezer influence there was in Radish songs, especially some of the stuff on Discount Fireworks. It made it easier to learn the songs pretending they were unreleased Radish songs...haha I'm older than most of you guys, so my first big musical love was (and still is) KISS. Radish being on the same label as KISS, Mercury Records, partially had something to do with me getting into Radish.

    Discount Fireworks

    Nah, it's definitely Discount Fireworks that has Cally on it and not Restraining Bolt. That's my favorite too. I thought that was going to be the hit on the album. But what do I know...I don't know why the general public didn't make Restraining Bolt a platinum album.

    Discount Fireworks

    Was Discount Fireworks completely mixed, mastered, and in the can by the time its plug got pulled? It's been awhile since I've listened to my copy, but I seem to remember it being a little unpolished still. I wasn't sure if it was supposed to be like that though.

    show recordings

    I got a couple of them. One for sure was in Baton Rouge. I think he did Panamanian Girl on that one. I'll have to look at home and see what the other one was that I have. I haven't thought about "Tylenol" in forever! What era was that from exactly, @Ben ?

    Weeeelll, EPKs were a thing before DVDs were a thing. We definitely got some EPKs on VHS at the radio station back in the day. I've got a Bad 4 Good one for sure. I think the closest thing we got for a Radish EPK from Mercury was an official-looking VHS of "My Guitar" from Letterman. Damn, that's not on YouTube either! Is that something you can legally put up or nah? I'm guessing nah.
  13. The only BK, er...Radish song I ever learned (when I had a guitar...which was sold to a pawn shop by an old roommate for drug money a long time ago...grr) was Simple Sincerity. I think I told JK once he needed to turn that into a country song and play it in JDK, but I don't think it ever happened.

    Favorite BK Memories

    Too many to pick just one, but I'll tell you what random thing I do maybe a couple of times a month that makes me think of @Ben is how to make yourself sneeze if you feel one coming on but can't. We were following Radish around for what ended up being their final 2 shows May of 1999. Hanging out in the hotel parking lot (in Austin, I believe) just chatting, and I can't remember if I had to sneeze, or my friend, or if Ben did, but somehow he graced me with the knowledge to look at the sun or a bright light if the sneeze isn't coming, and somehow it makes it happen. So I've been doing that ever since, and it works like a charm! In the same hotel parking lot chat, I first heard Ben's nickname for AirTran Airways was ScareTran, which my buddy Jack and I still laugh about.

    Got this off eBay a few days ago since I didn't see that it was on YouTube. It's pretty rad. What's the story behind it, @Ben? I'm gonna a guess it was a promo either sent to radio stations or more likely to indie record stores.
