Episode 289- 04-09-2024 – Kurt Cobain 30 years WTF

Apr 7, 2024 | Episode notes | 0 comments

Happy Sunday evening, everybody,

I just wrapped up this weeks episode. I decided to take a break from doing albums released on a specific date for something quite important. 30 years ago on 5 April Kurt Cobain committed suicide. There are some people that say this completely changed music and I guess in someways yes it did, the driving force of the 90s or one of them was gone. For many people this left a giant hole. I suppose in someways I was one of them.

You may not know that Nirvana has a connection to Madison. They started recording the album Nevermind at Smart Studios.

 The building is still there, but the studio has since been turned into an Airbnb. There’s part of me that is completely bummed out by that. Smart Studios put out some great albums. 


In 2021 Kurt Stream wrote a great article about nirvana’s adventures in Madison, if you haven’t read it, you can do so here.  https://www.channel3000.com/madison-magazine/arts-and-culture/when-nirvana-came-to-madison/article_1a4b1182-3c24-5a2e-8fca-b3983f425d70.html
