Saturday is Free Comic Book Day, your annual opportunity to visit comic book stores across America and score free comic books. Most of us will also buy comics during our FCBD visit, so everyone winds up happier'n Forbush-Man finally joining the ranks of The Mighty Avengers. Full details on FCBD 2016 can be found HERE; if you're in Syracuse, Boppin' (Like The Hip Folks Do) recommends a visit to Comix Zone on Main Street in North Syracuse, which is CC's preferred One Stop Comics Shop.
In 2012, pop fan and FCBD creator Joe Field, owner of Flying Colors Comics & Other Cool Stuff, contacted This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio with Dana & Carl about the idea of a Free Comic Book Day edition of TIRnRR, playing nothing but comics-related pop tunes for three hours. We thought it was a fabulous idea, and the result is detailed below.
This past week's edition of This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio with Dana & Carl was devoted solely to FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, and it was programmed in part by FCBD's creator, Joe Field. The challenge was to create a solid three-hour show of cool tunes inspired by or otherwise linked to the broad 'n' diverse world of comics, and we met that challenge as surely as Superman saved the world from Solomon Grundy. The show itself is super, amazing, astonishing, astounding, brave and bold, incredible, a marvel, top-notch, an American splendor and frankly, the world's finest. Also weird, but more fun. 'Nuff said. Thanks, Joe! And this is what rock 'n' roll radio sounded like on a four-color Sunday night in Syracuse this week. Excelsior!
