OK, so someone posted this fabulous YouTube clip recently of every sample used in Paul’s Boutique (though I think a few are missing), and I of course just had to track down each and every sample, 99 in all. I already had about 60 of the tracks, but the hunt for the remainder has been fun, nevertheless. And you, my dear listener, are the one’s to benefit from this scavenger hunt. This is why you tune in, right? Right.

Anyway, I start the second hour with eight tracks used to sample “Egg Man” and then follow it up with said Beastie Boys track. I’ll be doing this for each of the tracks on this classic LP in the weeks to come. Tune in and enjoy.

I also took this holiday show to share some longer and stranger tracks as you can see from the playlist below. I picked up a couple of James Brown/JBs LPs this past week, as well as some 80s and 90s punk 7″s . I also close out the show with a few live cuts that I think are worthy for your ears. If you’re playing the LDB game (and why would you?) then you better stop following the Abbey Lincoln track. Then again, the Lou Rawls version is my favorite LDB produced.

Happy holidaze and Treason’s Greetings to you all.

I like to rock. I like to do a lot of things. I like to get mellow with some swinging jazz. I like to get deep with some heart-felt blues and soul. I like to get my groove on with some sticky funk. But my go to is guitar-driven, vocals-howlin’, drums-poundin’ ROCK! I’ll be the first to admit I have a tad bit of aggression that builds up from time to time. Instead of taking it out on my loved ones, I prefer to take it out on my music collection.

This show has a lot of rock that helped my through 2019. I don’t think I’m going to host a Best of 2019 show, so this one will need to do. Almost all these tracks were released this year. There’s also some other tasty treats, including a recent addition to my live music library, that doesn’t rock, but certainly soothes.

It’s also been a year already since the death of Pete Shelley of the Buzzcocks, so I not only have a favorite tune of theirs, but a brilliant cover by Le Butcherettes, a band you really must see live.

I’m headed to some record stores this weekend. I can’t wait to share what I find on my show next Monday. Tune in!

Enjoy.

Tribute shows give me little joy. But at least I have this platform to share music from those who passed on. Robert Hunter, lyricist from the Grateful Dead, Kim Shattuck of Pandoras and the Muffs, and Ginger Baker, drummer from Cream, Blind Faith, Air Force, and Fela Kuti’s Africa ’70 all passed on recently, so I’m obliged to pay tribute in the second hour.

Enjoy.

Hell’s Kitchen Radio #382: You’re Comped

Download an Instant Classic HERE!

I have a lot of records. I don’t have as much as some, but what I have a like…a lot. I actually donated a few thousand LPs to Radio Valencia about 7 years ago, but turns out most of that music was shlocky 70s and 80s classic rock dreck and no one wanted it. I can’t blame them, neither did I. I’m way beyond quantity over quality.

I own about 2000 LPs today of multiple genres. And I purchase 4-8 LPs a month from numerous records stores around the East Bay and San Francisco. I have a rule that whenever I’m going to purchase at least three items, one of those items needs to be of an international variety, and one needs to be a compilation.

Now, there are varieties of comps that one could choose. There are record label “Best of..” comps, artist tribute comps, reissue comps, geographic comps, genre-centered comps, era comps, and rare never released and b-side comps. The latter are my favorites. Clubs have been known to put out comps as well. When crate digging, finding the perfect comp can really make my day.

On this show I feature some real tasty treats from all areas mentioned above. A two hour special only scratches the surface of the music I have (pun intended). Links are provided for your convenience.

FYI: ONLY TOUCH THE EDGE OF YOUR VINYL. The oils from your fingers will harm the grooves. You have been warned.

Enjoy.
