    Would it be possible to hear more of McCartney’s new album? I love “Alligator.” Thanks!

    I can’t believe that I haven’t heard ANY of McCartney’s new album on FM-100 yet.

    Sounds like a lot of great music in the near future! What is the news on a new album from the Alabama Shakes? That’s one I am certainly waiting for.
