Thank you to everyone who tuned-into the Friday's BumbleBee Brunch LIVE. There was a ton of great new tunes including the latest single from Boston duo Ex-Hyena. "Instant Fire" will be released next Friday 11/20/2020 and we have word that their debut LP will be entitled "Artificial Pulse" with a tentative release date in early 2021!
We also heard from Boston's Idler Wheel, who released their new album, "Breakers" on 11/13/2020. You can find that streaming on Spotify & Apple Music (among others) and can purchase it digitally on Amazon!

We had a few tunes that could have qualified as Forgotten Treasures this week, but my favorite of the lot was a tune from Depeche Mode that was originally only available as a B-Side on a 45-RPM record. "Now This Is Fun" was recorded during the sessions for the 1982 LP, "A Broken Frame," but didn't make the cut for the album. It instead was released as the B-side to the UK single, "See You." The song wouldn't reach America until it was included on the 1984 compilation album, "People Are People," which is when I first heard it. While it remained overshadowed by the #13 chart performance of the album's title track here in the United States, it's still a great tune and worth an ADD to your 80's playlist!
Don't forget that the BumbleBee Radio APP for Android is now available for FREE in the Google Play Store! An iPhone APP will be available in the Apple Store soon. As always thank you for listening! -Kristen
