Foo Fighters Release 1996 EP Live On The Radio
And this time they’ve found another gem: a four-track broadcast recoded back in 1996 for radio show ROCKLINE, featuring For All The Cows, How I Miss You, Wattershed and Up In Arms.
The show’s own Scott Weiss, who found the forgotten-about set, recently teased it on Twitter and the band’s awesome new The People Of Rock And Roll digital zine, with Live On The Radio 1996 now officially released in collaboration with Amazon Music.

“I was cleaning my garage and came across this DAT tape in an old box,” explains Scott. “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!”
