Tonight is Part 2 of my “Best of 2011” show. Last week was a lot of fun. There was so much great music out there this year, that two hours wasn’t nearly enough time to get through all of it. Tune in tonight to A Season in Hell with John Hell, 8-10pm, to hear more of what I consider to be the best of the year.

Go here to see last week’s playlist, as well as the link to hear the show.

Rock Fight 7 Playlist and Links

December 13, 2011
12:06 pm

It’s on! John Hell and Rotten Ronnie Donovan go toe to toe, head to head, mano a mano for the 7th installment of the bootleg matchup to end all bootleg matchups: ROCK FIGHT 7!!!

What a great show tonight. And once again, I kicked Ron’s ass. Seriously Ron, you really can’t play crappy audience recordings and actually think you’re going to win?

We were blessed with some special guests in the studio tonight. In the 7 o’clock hour Ralph Spight of Victim’s Family and Jello Biafra’s Guantanamo School of Medicine came by to talk about this Sunday’s San Francisco Rock Project benefit at Rickshaw Shop. Zeda, a ten year old bassist, and Cody a fifteen year old guitarist joined him to talk about the show. Check out their website for more info. This is a really excellent cause.

Around 9:30 the greatest guitarist you’ve never heard of, Eric McFadden came in to talk about his new sauce he’s been cooking up. Actually, he was talking about a lot of things, including waffles and an apple pie that one first place at a Thanksgiving dinner. It’s always such a pleasure to see Eric and Super D. They’re on the road so often that one wonders how they feel when they actually have time to relax.

As for the show, you can download it and listen to it at your leisure here for part one, and here for part two.

I love interviewing local bands, and tonight I had in a great singer: Xandra Corpora of Con Brio. She likens the band to Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, but I think they have a really original sound. Check out the two tracks we played on the show.

Also, next week is Rock Fight 7. See below for details. Rotten Ronnie Donovan phoned in to talk smack, but I put him in his place and hung up.

Tonight, some brand spankin’ new Mark Lanegan, which will knock your socks off.
