This ain’t no bar fight (though I’m fairly confident that Cash would win). No, this is a love fest. Johnny Cash and Nick Cave have more in common, musically, than many other combos. Cave has claimed that it was the fire and brimstone preachers of the American south that have inspired him the most in his songwriting, while Cash lived it by being raised there!

I’ve been wanting to host this special for a while now, but it’s not easy with only two hours to cover two men of such musical prominence. I’m sure the critics can tear my sets apart, which is fine. How would you improve on this show? Leave comments. In retrospect, I could have played Cave’s version of “The Singer”, and left out the Cash/Dylan duet. Other than that I could have used about six more hours to really do them justice. Thanks to everyone who offered their suggestions on my FB thread.

Next Monday night will feature lots of new music and some psych jams.

Enjoy.

Sorry to have missed last week. I just had to watch the Warriors beat up on the Cavs. Thanks to DJ dialashot for taking the controls. I trust he did me proud.

The heat of our studio makes me want to rock out and sweat! Full disclosure: turntable two was out of commission tonight, but thanks to my many years of radio experience I come prepared. I was taught years ago to always have something cued up and ready to go. That’s why I bring my trusted iPod with me just to be safe. Junior DJs take note.

The second hour of the broadcast featured some live cuts, including a new release from the “Sonic Journals” of Owsley “Bear” Stanley, and a 12 minute rendition of “Come in my Kitchen” from Johnny Winter. Also, a new release from Seattle’s The Monkeywrench, featuring Mark Arm and Steve Turner of Mudhoney. It’s a live album released by Valley King Records.

I’m in the planning stages for my next Rock Fight, which will feature myself and recording engineer John Karr. I’m nervous about this one. He’s got more quality live shows that he himself engineered and recorded than all the shows I’ve downloaded over the years. I’m hoping my years of radio experience distract him enough so I can continue my string of Rock Fight wins. Stay tuned.

Enjoy.

Say what you will about Record Store Day, my friend Dan shared some arguments against it, but I’m just fine with my obsession. I spent an hour in line at 1-2-3-4 Go! Records on Valencia last Saturday morning before being able to enter and peruse the annual selection. I also stepped across the street to Stranded Records to pick up a few more. I did not find parking by Thrillhouse Records and my wallet really ended the conversation for me by that point.

I’m not in it for the reissues of some major label dreck. I have no need for the Stevie Nicks rarities LP. As much as I love Prince, I really see no reason why to purchase the 1999 reissue. This is supposed to be about getting people to visit independent record stores to see what they’ve been missing by choosing to download or stream music, only. And there is a lot that you have been missing. You can see the full list of 2017 Record Store Day releases here.

The first hour of this show features my purchases. The second hour starts with a Prince “Deliverance” EP that a judge recently ruled won’t be allowed for release until a hearing in May. You get first listen. Lots of live treats follow, including a rare Os Mutantes soundboard, and the night that Ziggy Stardust died on stage.

Enjoy.
