There are good shows, and then there are shows when I am truly inspired. And tonight was such a night. And I can honestly say it was all about you, the listeners. So many great comments and inspirations. It’s like I jump start the show, and then you all chime in, getting me to go farther than I thought I could!?!?

Maybe I’m just excited to be losing 280 pounds on January 20th? I don’t know, but this was a fun show to host. 

So this is a new dawn, yes? How are you going to approach it? What are going to do differently leading into the next four years? What are your hopes and your fears?

There are so many opportunities standing there in front of us. Let’s not lose focus on what makes us great. And let’s allow music to be a binding force for good.

RUN FOR THE LILLIES 2021

The rules are simple:

  • You choose ten celebrities (from any industry) you believe will meet their demise by December 31, 2021.

Well that was a weird week. Once you think you’ve seen it all, our President gets impeached a second time. I was really hoping it would be an unanimous vote, but obviously I live in la la land. 

Anywho (I hate that colloquialism), you’re here for the music, not the commentary. Right? Hmmmm. Maybe you want more commentary. Do you want more commentary? I am a civics teacher, you know?

I offer you my latest, greatest creation: two hours of whatever the hell lit a fire under my butt as the current song was playing. There are some real treats, and a few surprises. And the banter isn’t too shabby. I think it flows right on by. You tell me what you think. No one ever leaves comments, except those Q-Anon COVIDiots.

Happy New Year, to you all! How did you celebrate the completion of one of the top 10 worst years in the history of our nation? I sat at home and watched the Melvins NYE special. Thanks fellas, that was a hoot!

Tonight was a night of firsts. I have never played Hank III before. Nor have I played Jake Blount (thanks Derlyn!!!), nor has Larry Boothroyd been played on my show as a session leader, though I have played plenty of Victim’s Family in the past. And though Buddy Rich has graced these “airwaves”, this record with Alla Rakha has never been on, though I look forward to sharing more from all of these artists in the future.

As for what 2021 has in store, it’s all about this Georgia special election that’s happening on Tuesday. I predict the two Democrats will win by slim margins. I also don’t think the GOP candidates will do as well as Trump did. If the two Dems do win, I have to wonder how much sway Trump will have with the House and Senate GOP members with the electoral certification on Wednesday? By the time you are reading this, it’ll probably be long over. How close were my predictions?

The end is nigh. And what are your plans? Are you going to head out and revel with your friends, sans mask, giving hugs, kisses, high fives and COVID to each other, and your beloved Nana upon returning home? Good for you for removing yourself from the gene pool. Unfortunately, you’re also risking others just to play around on amateur night. 

Stay home, watch a movie, drink a glass of bubbly (alcoholic or non), and head off to bed without anything to regret. We have next year, and all of our loved ones to consider.

Thanks in advance. 

This here is my year-end show. There’s a bunch of my faves from 2020, but this isn’t a “Best of…” show in the least. There’s a bunch of other tunes tossed in from across the ages. In retrospect I really should have played “I Want To Be Sedated”. Hmmmmm, just pretend I did, and click on the video link at the bottom.

Let’s all just agree that 2020 was relatively bad for everyone around the world, and move on, shall we? I mean really now, a pandemic puts everything else into perspective. You had a bad year? Oh, I am so sorry. WE ALL HAD A BAD YEAR. Your year sucked extra special bad? WOW! You must really want to win some award. This show is for you then. And only you. 

Enjoy.

And we’ve made it to Christmas Day!!! How the Hell did that happen so quickly? Seriously though, with all of this staying at home crap since March, one would think this year would have crawled by? Time always seemed to flow when I had to commute most days, pay the bills, do the dishes, and repeat. I’ve been home since mid-March, and December came in like a limping, gasping, clawing gazelle, after having been chewed on and spit out for the rancid meat that COVID and Trump’s allies turned 2020 into. 

What kind of fresh Hell is this?

So let’s stick with this musical lane for the next two hours shall we?

As you will see below the first hour contains a fistful of holiday music that is as off-kilter as yours truly. And isn’t that why you tune in in the fist place? The second hour is something else entirely. I really enjoyed the entire show, but the two hours are as different as Christmas is to Hanukkah. Take that for whatever you think it means.

If you live in the Bay Area of California, you really owe it to yourself to take a drive to either Christmas Tree Lane (Thompson Lane) in Alameda, or Chestnut Lights (Woodside Court) in South San Francisco. Regardless of your religious beliefs, the creativity that went into these houses is worth the trip. There are a number of other locations to go check out. Here’s the link for a bunch of them. Take a ride!

Go ho, ho, ho yourself, and I’ll see you all next Monday night to get you good and ready to say so long and fuck you to 2020. 

If you haven’t tuned into my Live Bootleg Bonanza show, tune in Monday’s 6-8PM, before my regular Hell’s Kitchen show, to check out shows from my vast live vault (it’s really just TBs of live shows) of thousands of shows from hundreds of bands. Most are soundboard quality, of varying genres. I played two Frank Zappa shows last week to celebrate what would have been his 80th birthday. 

Enjoy.

I’m so pleased that I have this outlet available to me, that on my honor I promise never to phone it in. I gave up my AOL dial up many moons ago.

This show has a lot of date-oriented music associated with it. I won’t give away the easter eggs; I just know you want to find them on your own. Feel free to leave a comment. 

I’m not certain how Angelisxvi showed up in this set. I have a folder for music I want to play on this show, and somehow it made its way in there. I’m guessing there’s a story I have chosen to forget. Or perhaps Little Lauson Hell (who made a brief appearance during this show) snuck it in there? 

There are a few artists who are making their debut on Hell’s Kitchen Radio: Bad Livers, Timothy Leary, Koko Taylor, Clairo, and yes, Angelisxvi. Why, oh why has it taken me this long to share Bad Livers?!?!?!?! And it’s FDR’s first appearance as well I believe. 

Never forget Pearl Harbor…or The Maine. Though I think it’s safe to say 122 years after, The Maine probably was an accident the US Navy used as an excuse to go to war with Spain, the weakest of all the world powers by 1898. Don’t get me started.

I think my vote for BEST SET has to go near the end with the set that starts with Electric Masada and ends with James Brown. That was about 20 minutes that will kick you in the groove thang.

You’re welcome.

Monday’s 6-8pm I’ve taken over to feature my live bootleg collection. If you tuned in you caught an hour of Mudhoney from 1990 in Australia, followed by an hour from the birthday boy, Tom Waits (71 years young) from 1999. I plan on doing this every Monday until we have a new show in place. Considering I download an average of five shows (from five different artists) a day, not including the Grateful Dead (5+ shows a day from them, alone), it’s a toss up what I’m going to share. I like playing more than one artist during that slot, unless it’s a tribute. Tune in Monday at 6pm (Pacific) to hear what I have in store. Then stay from 8-10 for my weekly mix.

Thanks for all of your continued support. 

I started hosting Monday’s 8pm back in 2000 when I joined San Francisco Liberation Radio, moved over to Pirate Cat Radio in July 2007, then to FCCFree Radio in 2008, and then Radio Valencia in 2010. Other than a few short breaks between stations, it’s been 20 years in the same slot. That in combination with my nine wonderful years at KFJC (88-97), and this has been a very fulfilling radio dream come true for me. I may need to write more about this later. 

Enjoy.

Each November I choose a year that I want to showcase for two hours. It’s a random selection. For my tenth annual Annual Annual I have chosen 1980. I turned 10 that year, and was already enjoying a growing record collection I could call my own. We owned a jukebox stocked with 45s from the 60s and 70s, and my dad always enjoyed having music playing throughout the house. My two older sisters (6 and 8 years older) often had the rock hits of the day playing in their rooms or on our family room stereo. 

1980 was a strange year for music. So many subgenres had crept into the aural vernacular by this time. It was no longer just a Jazz, Rock, Soul world. By 1980 Heavy Metal, Funk, Punk, and New Wave had infiltrated the discussion, and there’s nothing wrong with that, except commercial radio stations continued to divide us based on their perceived belief that we wanted stations that specialized in one particular genre, and that led to the continuing watering down of quality radio programming. 

Thank Yahweh for college radio!

The former and extremely boring KFOG used to have their daily “10 At 10” show that focused on one year at a time, but rarely, if ever, would they take a chance on some of the artist and genres that I feature on this annual special you see before you.

1980 had a lot of tasty bites to offer however. This show showcases a few commercial tunes (yes, I play the #3 most popular song based on Billboard charts. Sue me), as well as some underground morsels I’m sure you’ll enjoy chewing on. 

If you dig this Annual Annual and you want to check out my previous specials take a look at the link below and have at it. 

Enjoy.

I never enjoy missing my show, and last week was going to two hours of some serious celebrating, but family first, last, and always. So there ya go. I saved it all up for this show…kinda. I mean, the polish has sort of worn off, since el douche bag (I won’t even capitalize that) won’t concede. What a little prince he is.

I admit, the slow burn is fun to watch, but not at the cost of our democracy, which this fool doesn’t care a lick for. It’s all about the ratings, and possibly because he knows that he’s about to have a few indictments handed down within the next year. So long, Donnie. I would really love to see him taken out of the White House in handcuffs, but that’s not going to happen, and it really shouldn’t end that way for this guy. Not that he doesn’t deserve it. It’s just not good for the country. The world isn’t exactly laughing at us right now as much as looking on with eyes wide and mouth agape. 

So I do what I always do when the adulting gets too much, I listen to music. And just take a gander of what I have in store for your next two hours. I want to thank my dear friend, singer/songwriter and all around fabulous human, Adam MacKinstosh for throwing a bunch of recommendations my way tonight. Some days I get so overwhelmed with my music library that it helps to have someone else’s ears around to lend a hand. Thank you Adam. 

New music from FUZZ, Neil Young, and local power trio KnightressM1. There’s also a celebration for the 45th anniversary release of Patti Smith’s “Horses”, and much much more to satisfy even the pickiest listener, including a 16 minute funky/acid-drenched Grateful Dead “Dancin’ in the Streets”, that’s sure to get you shakin’ your groove thang until the orange cheeto vacates 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

In the meantime, enjoy.

So here we are, four years later, and another election where we tell ourselves “this is the most important election of our lives”. And yet I think it is. Let’s go into Tuesday with our hopes held high, regardless of the outcome. No matter who wins we have a lot of work to do. Get involved in this great American experiment. Get to have a working knowledge of the US Constitution, as well as your state Constitution. Know who your elected representatives are and hold them accountable, regularly. 

If you’re going to be watching the results tonight, please be wary of the “blue mirage”. Most mail-in ballots are from Democrats, so it’s going to look like Biden is in the lead and will win the state, just to have much of that lead disappear once the election day-cast ballots are counted. 

Take a deep breath, it’s going to be a long night.

I’m going to be watching North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Texas, Arizona, Michigan and Wisconsin. These are the states that can throw the election from one candidate to the other.

There’s more I could say about this (and I have to my students), but you’re an adult, and you know we have to be patient. 

Enjoy the ride.
