What a great night for radio!!! 8-10PM (PDST) tonight, I’ll be featuring some of the finest James Brown in celebration of his upcoming birthday, in the first hour. In hour numero dos, it’s week for of eight (read: 4/8) of my tribute to the 40th anniversary of the Grateful Dead’s 1972 European tour which culminated in a  fine triple-LP set, “Europe 72”. I have all of the shows and I thought “Hey, let’s make this happen”. Therefore the second hour tonight and the following four Monday nights is all live Dead from the Europe 72 tour.

Also, this Thursday, May 3rd, from 6-10pm I’ll be co-hosting the annual 24 hour “Doin’ it to Death” James Brown birthday special on KFJC, 89.7FM in the Bay Area, http://kfjc.org

WOW, what an amazing Record Store Day that was. Did you all get out and purchase some tasty vinyl? I know I did. I spent the day broadcasting at Vinyl Solution Records in San Mateo on Saturday with M. Dung and Jack Champion. Juan Rapido and the Cheap Hooch gals showed up later in the afternoon to throw down as well. There was so much fine vinyl to choose from, that I had a very hard time deciding, so I just bought it all. Ha! I wish. I’ll be playing so of the exclusive releases tonight in the first hour of my show, 8-9pm (PDST).

In hour 2, at 9PM I’ll be featuring week three of eight (3/8) of my celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Grateful Dead’s Europe 72 tour. Tonight it’ll be cuts from the 04/17/21 Tivoli Concert Hall, Copenhagen, Denmark and 04/21/72 Beat Club in Bremen, Germany. The 4/21 show was a short, jaunt for the band in a small theater. Oh, to have been there.

Tune in and enjoy some exclusive sweet sounds, 8-10pm (PDST) tonight.

In the 8pm hour it’s all new music. So many great releases in the past few weeks, it’s hard to choose what to share.
