New old things from Dan and Letha Melchior

Dan Melchior has put together a compilation of old things, and resulting from this putting together of things, John Dwyer's Castle Face will release Hunger, by Dan Melchior und Das Menace, on June 24. You can pre-order it here. Have a listen to "A Wizard Doesn't Need a Computer," one of its included tracks, at the AV Club's website or via WFMU (originally posted 2009).

I've written here about his wife Letha's battle with stage four cancer, and while she generally appears to be going through a better quality of life thanks to a change in medication, Dan and Letha could still use some assistance with paying the bills and getting her the necessary care.

How can you help?

1. Buy the previously mentioned Hunger, of which a portion will be directed to them.
2. Donate directly through the Letha Rodman Melchior Cancer Fund.
3. Purchase an album or several from Dan Melchior's record collection. The man's got good taste!
4. Purchase a solo album by Dan or Letha Melchior.
5. If you can't offer any funds, send Letha well wishes and check out her blog.
