Great to have April Richardson back with us this week for a bit. For those new to the program, April was a frequent guest sidekick a while back and we have her on from time to time as her TV schedule at E! ‘s Chelsea Lately permits.
Dresden Dolls singer Amanda Palmer made quite a stir this week suggesting that Morrissey consider a site like Kickstarter or “crowdsourcing” as a way to raise funds for his next album. Kristeen Young fired back on her Facebook page with a “no duh”.
What say you, Breakfast Champions? Is crowdsourcing beneath an artist like Morrissey or will this be the only way we get to hear new music from our hero? Are we holding out hope that he will get that record deal he so rightly deserves? These issues we’ll discuss this week, along with all of your great song requests. Thanks for listening.
