A Season In Hell

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

December 5, 2011
7:58 pm


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 #19: Radio Valencia: Best of 2010

December 27, 2010

I missed my show last week, because I was up in the snow. A lot of snow too. I didn’t move my car for two full days, and it had about three feet of snow covering it when I left. Lots of snow. Went sledding too, with the little one.

Anyway, I thought a great way to make up for my absence would be to do a three hour Best of… show. So I did a five hour show. Feast from FCCFreeRadio came over for a little while, as did KROB. We played a lot of fine 2010 music in the first two hours, before jumping to some great live shows from 2010. The last two hours included some fine ditties I picked up this year; all of them live. The show ends with two amazing live cuts: Zeppelin and the Dead.

As always these shows are available to download. Just click on the “hour” links.
