A Season In Hell

A Season in Hell #66: Radio Valencia: I’m Too Jaded

December 5, 2011

I love interviewing local bands, and tonight I had in a great singer: Xandra Corpora of Con Brio. She likens the band to Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, but I think they have a really original sound. Check out the two tracks we played on the show.

Also, next week is Rock Fight 7. See below for details. Rotten Ronnie Donovan phoned in to talk smack, but I put him in his place and hung up.

Tonight, some brand spankin’ new Mark Lanegan, which will knock your socks off.

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

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.
