A Season In Hell

A Season in Hell #71: Radio Valencia: Birthday Theme

January 9, 2012
7:56 pm


The first hour tonight was a lot of fun. Check out the Marvin Pontiac and Michael Kiwanuka tracks. There is so much good music out there.

If you like drum solos then you’re going to LOVE Deep Purple’s live version of Paint it Black. If you don’t then I promise that you will absolutely HATE it. ’nuff said.

I did a bit of a birthday set for John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page, David Bowie, Syd Barrett and others.

A Season in Hell #63: Radio Valencia: 1971, It Was A Very Good Year

November 14, 2011

I’ve always held a special place in my heart for 1971. I wasn’t born in that year. I was born in 1970, but the music from ’71 was simply amazing in so many ways. It was that year that we begin to see the emergence of many genres: R&B, Soul, Blues, and Jazz had already been around for a while, but now more genres of Rock n’ Roll begin to emerge. This is not your father’s Rock n’ Roll. Funk, psychedelic, progressive, and ambient genres begin to really showcase themselves at this time. And of course, some truly classic albums (remember albums?) that the classic rock radio stations play too much of, were released that year.

Tonight on A Season in Hell, with John Hell, I play some of my favorite tunes from that great year. Tune in and enjoy. Heck, you can even download the archived show as well, and enjoy it in 2071.
