Preview Foo Fighters' newly released four-track 'Live On The Radio 1996' EP from Amazon Music

2020 was supposed to the be the year of the Foo ... 


Dave Grohl and his band of Foo Fighters were going to celebrate their 25th anniversary in grand fashion ... first- they were going to embark on their US Van Tour ... and then they were slated to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their first record with a massive all day festival at FedEx Field in DC ... but ... ya know ... 2020 happened. 


But Dave Grohl is the king of pivoting. I mean - the man played a show with a broken leg sitting on a throne made of guitars! 


So in 2020, we've seen him get into a virtual battle of the bands, release a story telling IG account, start a fanzine, lead Zoom sing a longs -  and now - Foo Fighters have released a new / old live recording of a radio show from 1996. 


The story goes ... a DJ named Scott Weiss found a tape he forgot he had of the Foos from 1996 from a radio show called ROCKLINE.  The set features the tracks For All The Cows, How I Miss You, Wattershed and Up In Arms ... 


“I was cleaning my garage and came across this DAT tape in an old box .. I thought ‘Oh yeah, this is from that time I recorded the Foo Fighters for a nationwide radio broadcast!’ ... In 1996, I was working at a small recording studio in Seattle. The studio took a booking to do a radio interview session with the Foo Fighters and I was booked as the audio engineer. It was a really fun night. Putting this tape in and giving it a listen after all these years was such a flashback! It’s a unique recording and I don’t think Foo fans often get a chance to hear Dave sing like he did that night. And the Watershed improve was a show-stopper! Thanks for the memories guys!”

Scott posted a pic of the tape online and the band caught wind of it ... 




One thing led to another - I mean, c'mon  ... if Dave Grohl and Jeff Bezos asked you for a cassette - are you turning them down? 


And here you have Foo Fighters Live On The Radio 1996:
