This Sunday on Neu-Matic: DE LA SOUL vs. STEELY DAN Print E-mail


Jim Bear brings you a special edition of Neu-Matic pitting the best of De La Soul against Steely Dan's finest. Mase, Pos & Dave square off versus Becker & Fagan this Sunday for two hours. From the Native Tongues, D.A.I.S.Y. Age and beyond to sinister jazz-rock for strung out music nerds these two bands made music like no one else before. Hearing them here together sounds pretty great, too. Listen for yourself from 3-5 PM on G-town Radio (8/21/2011). Click through for some random facts about both bands and the playlist from the show.
