Mike Nikolich DJ Profile

I host The Thursday Spin at 10 pm CST every Thursday. My show is a mix of new and old indie, world, alternative, punk, rock, jazz, prog, ambient, blues, soul and anything else that works. The Thursday Spin airs until midnight, but if enough listeners make the request, I will stay on much later. Either way, I guarantee that you will hear artists that aren't played anywhere else -- and I love to play your requests!

Check out Mike's two most recent shows here.

Sublime - Sublime album artwork 11:35pm Sublime Doin' Time Sublime (Gasoline Alley)
Track Notes: This one was covered brilliantly by Lana Del Rey. The lyrics tell of a cheating girlfriend, whose infidelities and poor treatment of her lover makes him feel like he is in prison. It was released as a single on November 25, 1997; the disc contained alternate versions of the song by Wyclef Jean and The Pharcyde. Additional versions appeared on the post-Bradley Nowell compilation album Second-hand Smoke and several bootlegs, including one with Snoop Dogg. This song reached number 87 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 28 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart.
