Although Radio Valencia as an entity does not identify with a political ideology, we don’t censor our DJs when it comes to them voicing what they believe in. When I was involved with San Francisco Liberation Radio (2000-2003), we were very vocal about our stance against the Bush administration and its march to war. We were so loud that it got us shut down by the FCC, with guns blazing. Fun times.

Monday night LawWorksAction.org streamed a 90 minute live reading of parts of the Muller Report, as recited by professional actors. I thought it important that as a show host/producer I have the responsibility to make this available to my listeners. I did not play the program straight through, beginning to end. Instead, I played to ~15 minute sections, peppered through my show.

When is the last time you read the US Constitution? Have you ever read it? Have you ever discussed it? Are you aware that every action that takes place in our nation has a direct connection to this document?

As for the music, it rocks!

Enjoy.

Some shows I’m just inspired to dig a little deeper. This is one of those shows. Are you as tired of the commercial radio dreck as I am? And who can blame you, really? They play the same 40-50 songs over and over throughout the day. It’s insulting. I don’t want to insult you. I want to inspire you.

Leon Redbone passed away a couple of weeks back; the day before Roky Erickson as a matter of fact.

Genres-a-plenty across these two hours, with my ongoing desire to share my recent live show acquisitions with you during the second hour. Some live Bob Dylan from the recent Rolling Thunder Revue 17 disc set, Muddy Waters from 1963, and Grand Funk from 1972 to rock your bones.

Get out and dance this week!

Enjoy.

It’s beginning to feel a lot like 2016 around here. too many fabulous musicians are passing away.

Tonight I offer my tribute to the great Malcolm John Rebennack Jr, better known as Dr. John, The Night Tripper, who passed away at the tender age of 77 on June 6, 2019. Considering he was born and raised in New Orleans with its amazing culture and rich cuisine, and had a heroin addiction until late 1989, it’s a wonder he lived as long as he did. We’re lucky just to have had him for the time we did.

I start my show with a 30 minute live tribute from a blazing hot show in 1987.

I welcome DJ Doug back into the studio with me tonight. He is starting a new show, Tuesday mornings, midnight-2AM on Radio Valencia. Be sure to tune in. He has excellent musical taste, if I say so myself. I always enjoy training new DJs. DJ Doug is a natural.

Enjoy.

Well Roky Erickson died. So there’s that. Damn. sigh. What a life he led. Have you seen the documentary of his life, “You’re Gonna Miss Me“? No? Go see it now.

I was lucky to have seen Roky perform four times since 1993. The first time I saw him was at the Austin City Music Awards, when he was walked out onto the stage to perform. My mouth was agape as he shuffled onto the stage, timidly, only to belt out three songs in perfect pitch. It made me shudder. The last time I saw him was he final performance, at The Chapel in SF, this past April 20th. I wish I could say he went out on top, but it was a sub-par performance by this legend. Still, it was so wonderful to see him up there sharing his love with the audience.

The first hour of this show focuses on a number of new releases. Support new artist releases!!! I offer links to the new artists below.

The second hour is all about Roky. I have some rare and live treats, as well as some excellent cover versions of Roky solo and 13th Floor Elevator tracks.

There’s a lot to enjoy here.
