Live Ledge #311: Who Is Lydia Loveless? Hits Stores

What a busy show tonight!

The main focus of tonight's show are two releases related to Lydia Loveless, and director Gorman Bechard is on to chat about both of them. First off, the DVD of "Who Is Lydia Loveless?" has finally arrived in stores, and is chock full of great DVD extras. (Rumor is that some of the footage was recorded in a certain internet radio personality's home.)

Record Store Day fans also had the opportunity to purchase some of the music included in that movie. The centerpiece of "Who Is Lydia Loveless?" is a hometown concert that was such a blistering showcase of the band's powerful live sound that Bechard was able to convince Loveless and her management that it should be released. The six-song EP definitely lives up to that billing.

Bechard is on tonight's show to chat about both of those releases, but inevitably we chat about so much more. He gives us updates on projects involving Sarah Shook and Jay Bennett, and tells a heartbreaking story about receiving a postcard from Grant Hart a week after he passed away.

We also spend a little time talking about one of our favorite power pop artists, Tommy Keene, who passed away earlier this week. I also begin the show with a little tribute to David Cassidy in the form of a Paul Westerberg cover of "I Think I Love You".

Gorman also picks out a few songs that's been rocking his world, and the rest of the show is filled up with other Record Store Day finds. Grab this show from your regular podcast providers, or...
