For our pilot season, School days on the Seven, we relied heavily on easy-to-secure music from nearby friends. This limitation proved to be fortuitous. So much so that, for the near future, nearby music will be a show feature.
I have been listening to Wes Houp’s “Quaalude Santa Clause” for nearly a decade. It took revising our episode on northside gentrification, however, to hear its noodling guitarwork as the perfect anthem of the creative class and its slick guru,Richard Florida. It worked perfectly for episodes five and six.
Listen to Wes’s song in its entirety here.
