It’s been six long months, and you’ve been oh so patient, but the wait is over!
6-10PM (PST) John Hell and Ron Donovan will engage in the bootleg battle to end all bootleg battles!

As many of you already know, John and Ron have been collecting bootlegs (live recordings of your favorite bands) for nearly two decades. We have vinyl, cassette, CD and digital (no MP3s – lossless only!) shows of THOUSANDS  of bands from all over the world.

Every six months John and Ron get together to once and for all prove who has the best selection (we all know it’s John ).

We have special guests in the studio, including Bay Area band
Illogical Resources Dept.
More guests are expected, including a

We need judges too. You can go to the homepage here, and use our fabulous “CHATTERBOX” to let us know what you think of the show, as well as vote for the winner. We’ll have many sets that you can vote on.

Post pics of where you’re listening to us!

Listen in on the pop-up player.

Let the battle begin!

Best of 2012 with John Hell

December 10, 2012
11:35 pm

Well, here we go again. Can you believe it’s already been a year?!?!

There was so much great music this past year. I have to admit, I really love this particular show. Every year I get to showcase what I believe to be the best music of the year, and this year there are some choice cuts to choose from.

If you listen to my show regularly, then you know that I jump around from genre to genre. Tonight my show features a lot of pop, some metal, some psych. There’s no jazz or hip-hop in my list for tonight. That doesn’t mean there weren’t some fabulous tracks out there, just that none of them really struck my fancy enough to feature them in my Best of 2012. Don’t be a hater. There will be plenty of hip hop and jazz in upcoming shows.

In the meantime, enjoy the show, and spread it around, and for God’s sake, go buy some of this great music, and support live, local music every chance you get!

You can download this Best of, and take it with you everywhere you go.
You can stream this awe-inspiring showcase, and play it for your friends at work.
Perhaps you wish to listen to all of my shows, click here, or just scroll down.

As always, enjoy.
