Well here ya go. So many songs. So many great tunes for you to note and then go purchase, and perhaps, if these bands are still around, go and see perform live and in concert, like I did last Saturday, at The Chapel, seeing Roky Erickson.

Oh Roky, you’re wonderful, but it might be time to hang it up. Yes, we are going to miss you, but that was rough. The sound was great! The band was great, but it’s hard seeing a musical hero, who has already had his boughts with some serious mental health issues, sit up there forgetting not only the words, but also the melody of some of his most-cherished songs. We love you, Roky, and we’re thrilled you found a pathway to health over the past 20 years.

Tune in tonight, 8-10PM for more new music and music that’s new to you.

Enjoy.

Sometimes absence does make the heart grow fonder. It’s been a few weeks, I know, but don’t let that be a reason you forget about dear old Hell. Taking time off allows me to amass more music to share with you. Most of the music on this show I haven’t shared with you before, so count yourself lucky.

I hope you’re tuning in with Shazam running. Or at the very least grab a pen and paper!

I paid tribute to word jazz stalwart Ken Nordine throughout the show. There’s also new music from Frisco, and Tae. It’s also the 50th anniversary of the Allman Brothers Band, and I have just cracked open the Holy Grail for live Allman’s. I’ll have more to share with you over time.

I’m not on this coming Monday night (family duty calls), but the after I should have Little Lauson Hell in the studio with me, and new music from Ty Segall (live) and OCS (live!!!), and whatever Lauson throws on. Her tastes have really evolved since last she was on a few months back.

Tune in Monday’s 8-10PM (PDST)

See you on the “radio”

Did ya hear the news, it’s all over town. If you ain’t heard it boy, you better sit down. I’ve got the story here, it’s hot off the press. Brace yourself now and take a deep breath. Grab a hold of something, hold on tight. John Hell is on the loose tonight.

Whew, now that I have got that Bob Segar lyric off my chest, let’s get on with the show. There’s lots of new music represented tonight, as well as some classics you have probably never heard before. I completely failed to play any Ken Nordine, who passed away this past weekend. Dang. I had a few brilliant tracks of his lined up, too.

Check out new music from Gringo StarPerfect SonCherry GlazerrSunflower BeanDeer TickRoyal CanoeBrownout, and Jon Spencer. I gave tickets away to see Jon Spencer at Slims. You seem you need to tune in so you too can have the chance of winning tickets to shows. You really need to get out more. Work to live, don’t live to work. You need more balance in your life.

You may have noticed, i’ve taken to closing my show with Louis Armstrong. A lot of DJs will have an opening and closing theme songs. I’ve played with this over the years, and I feel it’s time to throw it back into the mix. Many DJs also have music they speak over; known as a music bed. The only reason you don’t hear me doing this much at Radio Valencia is my own prep. Just another goal of mine for 2019. You would think 350+ shows into my RV tenure, and about 30 years in radio I would have this figured out already? I’m pretty lazy it would appear.

Who loves ya, baby?

I’m the luckiest DJ I know. I got to interview the love duo that makes up San Francisco’s Love Jerks!!! The last time I saw Rebecca Garza-Bortman she was the better third of Happy Fangs (sorry Michael…love ya), and the last time I saw Bryan Bortman, he was rockin’ out with Scissors for Lefty. Little did I know at that time that these two were worshipping one another from afar. Not only did they meet and fall in love, but their wedding was epic!

Now they have their own band, Love Jerks. The came on last Monday night to talk up their Valentine’s Day show at the Rickshaw Stop. Have you seen their Facebook Page? Have you seen the promotional videos they have made for this gig? These two are the future; you better get on the bus now! They have a new LP out Million Movies (that’s right, VINYL!), which they were kind enough to donate…no payola here, folks. We’re straight on the up and up…now. Buy their music here.

They come on during the second hour and we have lots of fun. Check out the music and the interview, where I really don’t hold back. How many couple have been in bands together just to watch their love come crumbling down? My money is on these two to make it big and to make it last.

Tune in tonight 8-10PM on Radio Valencia for your chance to win a pair of tickets to go see Jon Spencer this Sunday at Slims.

Enjoy.

Some nights I just need to ROCK! And since we have no constraints on what we can or cannot play here at Radio Valencia, I felt obliged to feed my urge. Join me, will you?

WARNING: There is one, I repeat, one polka song. Then again it’s by Polkacide, so I’m forgiven. If you have never witnessed Polkacide live I feel sorry for you. There a band that MUST be seen live to really understand the attraction. Their “final show” (of which I’ve seen more than my fair share) was just days after my son was born, October 8th, 2017. I look forward to their next final show, as I’m confident it will polka hard. Join my in the polka pit and you’ll see what I mean.

Take a look at the playlist below and prepare for a quality neck ache, ala head banging for two sweet hours.

Enjoy.

It’s nice to have a few weeks off to recharge one’s batteries, but considering my weekly show is exactly what I use to recharge my batteries, I felt more empty than ever stepping into the studio on Monday night. True story. I had a few weeks off from work, since I’m a teacher, and you would think I would be traveling the southern continent, or spending many relaxing hours at home, sleeping in late, taking leisurely strolls in my hood. Yeah, you would think that. The truth could not be farther from this. Who am I to complain?

I did buy some tasty vinyl over the break, however. Some rare Grateful Dead, released between 71-75, and some blues LPs that I needed. Yes, needed. I need music. It’s my drug of choice. I was thinking of buying some much-needed shoes over the holidays, but instead I bought a Muddy Waters LP, and a Sony Terry and Brownie McGhee LP. Priorities.

I don’t have any resolutions for the new year. Resolutions are for suckers. I just keep on keepin’ on and let choice be my voice. I should probably cut down on the sugary sweets. Sure, why not? I have switched to black coffee though. No more mocha’s for John Hell! It’s saving me money, which I can put towards my vinyl addiction, er…um obsession.

Speaking of obsession, my playlist is below and the links to the stream and download are above.

It’s December so it’s time for my obligatory BEST of show…kinda. If anything it’s a chance to play great music! And isn’t that why you tune in week after week? You do tune in, don’t you? That’s interesting. I just realized that I asked “don’t you”, and not “do not you”. Huh.

My show isn’t all about 2018 music, however. Just take a gander at the playlist below and you’ll note the diversity in the sets. Yes folks, we here at Radio Valencia believe the only good radio is diverse radio. Why I play all kinds of diverse genres: metal, heavy metal, death metal, speed metal, stoner metal, and doom metal. Don’t be fooled by our competitors, they only program to the lowest common denominator. We have discovered a way to much much lower.

That being said, there was a lot of great music in 2018. Albums by King TuffOh SeesMudhoneySleep, and of course a few by Ty Segall, are just a glimpse into what was another stellar year for the indie rock/garage scene.

I encourage you to tune in to Radio Valencia throughout the rest of 2018 for more Best of shows from some of the finest DJs west of East Orange, New Jersey.

I’m taking the next two weeks off to celebrate family and friends. I suggest you do the same. I’ll be scheduling some of my favorite Hell’s Kitchen Radio programs to play in my absence. I encourage you to have it playing in the background during your family celebrations. I’m available for Bar Mitzvah’s too!

Happy Holidaze to you and yours from me, and all of us at Radio Valencia. See you in 2019!

Sometimes inspiration arrives in the strangest of moments. I was actually about three minutes late for my show tonight. Thanks to Dial-A-Shot for keeping it rockin’ until I arrived. I quickly threw my first tune on, “Porno” by local SF funk-punksters Limbomaniacs (if you saw them back in the 90s then you know), and as I was contemplating my own porn addiction (tongue in cheek, folks, seriously), I thought about what other addictions people are known to enjoy. Hence tonight’s theme: substance use!

Oh the joys of the holidays, when we look for any coping mechanism within reach. So whether it’s tasty treat that is alcohol, aromatic marijuana, a psychedelic journey, cocaine blues, or maybe you’re into the needle, this is the show for you.

Make this the holiday soundtrack your family didn’t know they needed.

See you on the other side.

Has it been a year already? Who am I kidding, November can’t come fast enough. Seriously, I anxiously await this time of year to comb through the music and media of one specific year to share with you all. This year it took a bit of head scratching to make a final decision. I was considering something from the 80’s when I was a teen, and when I started purchasing music on my own. I would like to thank my brother-from-another-mother, Eric Wilcox for suggesting 1983. Debut records from Metallica, Slayer, Exploited, Suicidal Tendencies, Weird Al, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and so many more!

What did 1983 mean to you? To me it was a very awkward 8th grade (my eighth school in eight years), very poor Bar Mitzvah prep, and my parents marriage falling apart. Yay! It’s also the year that I began noticing more than what was playing on popular radio. I was used to Huey Lewis, Van Halen and ZZ Top, but my friend Etienne was turning me onto bands like Dio, Judas Priest, Ozzy (solo) and Iron Maiden. So I had that going for me.

If you’re interested you can check out the Billboard top whatever here. I do my best to stay away from the hits, though the Donna Summer video was always a favorite of mine. I do talk up some 1983 history and throw some old commercials in there for good measure.

I never have enough time to get through every act I want to, but this will need to suffice. Check out the playlist below, and for Christ’s sake go purchase some of this fine music, and as always go out and see live music from time to time.

Speaking of which, there are some great live shows coming to the Bay Area in the next few weeks. Ty and Denée Segall’s band CIA is playing at El Rio in SF on December 9th, Redd Kross and Dale Crover Band are playing Slims on December 19th, and the Melvins have announced a show at Cornerstone Brewery in Berkeley for January 21st. For more info on live shows coming to town check out THE LIST, which has been my go-to since it was in print form many moons ago.

I admit it, I have a serious crush on Garage/Psych rocker Ty Segall. In the past 10+ years he has taken the garage rock revival by storm, and continues to reinvent himself with each successive release. He’s known for releasing something new, whether on a 7″, LP, or even cassette(why???) every few months, with a rotating cast of very talented characters, mostly including guitarist/drummer Charles Moothart and bassist Mikal Cronin.

Honestly, I could have used another two solid hours to showcase his music.

Segall left San Francisco a few years back after he acknowledged that artists couldn’t not afford to live in a city that is quickly becoming the playground for the rich. Heading back to his birthplace, SoCal, he set up a new home studio and committed to producing quality rock 24/7. He hasn’t let us down.

On this show I try my best to present his music in a chronological order, but because of time constraints I couldn’t include each release of his over his short but prolific career. Take this as a snapshot of a genius in the making.

I also take the opportunity to talk about the California propositions for the November 6th ballot. How did you vote? Even if you aren’t happy with the outcome, please stay involved in politics. We need every voice to count.

Enjoy.
