Radiohead, Kanye West, Wire, Sonic Youth, Spoon and David Bowie are just a few of the musicians who have been influenced by the experimental German rock band Can. This Sunday on Fine Tuning I’ll spotlight “Live in Stuttgart 1975,” a previously unreleased concert recording made during Can’s heyday and remastered by founding member Irmin Schmidt and the band’s longtime producer Rene Tinner. Also in the mix will be birthday tributes to Ray Davies of the Kinks (who turns 77 on June 21) and Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys (who turns 79 on June 20). Fine Tuning: Sundays from 4 to 6 p.m. on ann arbor’s 107one.
