Another winner of a broadcast for this week. I think I’m finally getting the hang of this. Lots of tasty library choices on this night. For you not used to the library lingo, “library” means older releases. Some older tunes, some afro-funk, stoner-rock, alt-country, live Iggy and live Dead! What else could you ask for? A few long jams? Sure, I’ve got that in the show as well. Some jazz and blues? Why not?! Some prog-rock and English punk? Ok, if you say so.

Happy Forfa to all of you. Please celebrate responsibly as you blow up a little bit of our nation, and perhaps a small part of your body.

See you Monday night at 8.

Also, Flint still has no clean drinking water, and Puerto Rico is mostly out of power.

Enjoy.

I promised I wasn’t going to go on a rant tonight. I almost got through the entire show too. It was worth it. But it’s all about the music, right? That’s why you tune in. You want to hear what I’m going to play, and in what order I’ll be playing it. I get it. That’s why I listen to quality radio programs, and often with a pen and paper at hand. I want to get excited about a tune I haven’t heard before so I can run on out and purchase it, and perhaps get turned on to an artist that has deftly escaped my attention until now.

Recently, a friend of mine was telling me that I should contact a commercial radio station and ask for the opportunity to be their music director for one day. Yes, the music heard on most commercial stations, most of the time, makes me want to puke. Much of what I’m perplexed about is the order of their songs. They can hand me the list of all artists/songs they want played for that day and allow me to place it in an order that actually makes sense. Don’t hold your breath for me to do this anytime soon, but I do like the idea.

If you have been enjoying the second hour live sets I’ve been doing then I believe you’re really going to enjoy what I have in store for you on this show. Check out the playlist below, and click the stream/download links above.

Enjoy.

Spinning a two hour set is always a hoot for me, but having a co-host who meshes with my style, and also knows how to throw me a surprise of three is always a real pleasure. On Monday’s show I was thrilled to have Radio Valencia‘s Gatsby Fassbinder, host of Tighten Up Your Wig, Thursday’s 4-6PM. If you like my show you’re going to love his. Like myself, Gatsby is a walking encyclopedia for all things that he knows he knows. His tracks are marked by “GB”.

New music from Melvins side project, Crystal Fairy, featuring Teri Gender Bender of Le Butcherettes. Also, new music from Meatbodies from their latest LP “Alice”. A brand new 7″ is out from Zig Zags that is more metal-y than previous tracks, but no less scary. A classic Iggy Pop/James Williamson track from “Kill City”, a love song from Diamanda Galas, and the greatest fucking rock band of all time (next to the Melvins) SLEEP!

It’s safe to say that tonight was all about the ROCK! The talk is cheap and so are we. Not much more to add. I’d prefer to allow the music do the rocking.

Enjoy.
