    thanks to Jeremiah we found out about a very cool song by the singer and musician Andy Labrecque: it’s called ‘You Can Be Love If you Want To’ and it has been recorded in 2001 at J’s home studio, Bob’s place…. even more thrilling: J himself played drums & lead guitar on it!

    On Andy Labrecque’s website, there is a link to download this and other fine songs!

    The British radio station BBC6 broadcast the Dinosaur Jr show at the Brixton Academy 1994 on Wednesday, Oct 15th in their radio show BBC6 "Dream Ticket".

    As there is the possibility on the BBC6 website to tell their editors which gigs/bands/venues we all want to listen to most and many of us voted for Dinosaur Jr a while back, it looks like it has worked great! Thanks to FreakScene member rambleon for the hint !!!

    It’s still possible to listen online to the show on BB6 :mrgreen:

    That radio show will be online for a few days after it has been broadcast.
