Even within the eclectic world of alternative rock, few bands were so brave, so frequently brilliant, and so deliciously weird as the Flaming Lips.

An acid-bubblegum band with as much alTmity for sweet melo- dies as blistering noise assaults, their off-kilter sound, uncommon emotional depth, and bizarre history firmly es- tablished them as true originals.The ITALIAN RADIO PROGRAMS "The Sicilian Corner" i0:00 am to 12 Noon every Friday with hosts Tom Zappala and Mike Lomazzo and "The Italian Show" with Nunzio DiMarca every Sunday from I0:00 am-l:00 pm.
