Wednesday, February 20
It’s President’s Day in the US, and that means that…um, well, er…I’m not sure what that means. We used to have to holidays in February, one for Washington’s birthday, and one for Lincoln’s birthday. Now it’s all on one day. I guess they figured George and Honest Abe are good guys, but why should they get all the glory? I mean, come on, how about Millard Fillmore, or William Howard Taft? And hey, let’s give it up for my boy James K. Polk!!! Or how about Lester Young?
I got the day off today, which was nice. So I took the time to prepare a tasty treat of a show for you. The first hour features the holiday theme, some of which are a bit subversive. GASP!
Today also marks the 39th anniversary of the release of the first Kiss album, “Kiss”. I pay homage to my first favorite group. I was in the Kiss Army at the age of 5. I truly do want to rock and roll all night, and party every day.
The second hour is all new music, including the great new Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds track “Jubille Street”. I can’t wait to see them live at the Civic in San Francisco in April. There is never a lack of great new sounds out there, and leave it to the best radio station west of East Orange, New Jersey to give it to you. I share links for then stuff. Click on it, and go buy their music.
As always, support live, local music.
