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.

June 9, 4pm

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve had guests in the studio, and countless months since a live performance. So tonight I think I hit a home run. RonKat Spearman of Katdelic and formerly of George Clinton’s P-Funk graced the studio with vocalist Leslie and guitarist Sasha in tow. I’ve seen RonKat a number of times, solo and sharing a stage with our mutual friend and regular Hell’s Kitchen guest, Eric McFadden, but I have never had the pleasure of hosting him on the air, until tonight.

RonKat has a deep musical history, which he shares with us during the show, including his father taking him around to many musical competitions in Michigan, where little RonKat would blow the room away. He is a left handed guitar player, and plays a right handed guitar like Hendrix did. Unlike Hendrix however, his guitar is still strung the way a a right handed guitar would be strung! That means for RonKat the high E string is on the top instead of the bottom. I would not have believed it had I not seen and heard it with my own two eyes and ears.

Most of the first hour consists of interview and live performance. You are going to want to crank this up and put on your dancing shoes! RonKat shares some hilarious stories about his time in P-Funk, including the night George Clinton introduced him to Prince! You want to hear this story.

Katdelic is appearing Friday, June 7th at the Boom Boom Room on Fillmore around 11PM, and this Sunday, June 11th, at the 40th annual Haight Ashbury Street Fair, on the Love Stage around 3PM.

GO SEE THIS BAND!!!

The second hour I just had to continue in the funk vein. See the playlist below for your funky edification.

Enjoy.

Oh boy, Memorial Day once again. We really do need to stop having these. Do me a favor, if you really want to thank a veteran, punch a politician in the face. Tell them John Hell said it was OK.

The first hour features my subversive Memorial Day “celebration”. I don’t think you can make popsicles with them. I’ll have to ask Ivanka. That woman can make a popsicle out of any national holiday.

I gave tickets away tonight to go see Dave and Phil Alvin and the Guilty Ones at Great American Music Hall for this Thursday night. This promises to be a great show, so congrats to the winners and I’ll see you there. BTW, I give tickets away from time to time, so tune in and WIN!

The second hour of my show was yet another tribute to a fallen musical comrade. Vocalist and keyboardist Gregg Allman of the Allman Brothers Band passed away this past weekend at the age of 69, from complications from liver cancer at his home in Savannah, Georgia. Growing up I was a huge fan of Duane-era Allman Brothers. What a band! Someone asked me once, “if the Grateful Dead were playing at one club, and down the street Duane-era Allman Brothers were playing at another club, which band would you go and see?” That is a damn tough question to answer? Though they are both “jam” bands, the Allman’s always were so in a more structured vein. And there jams could really fly. Consummate musical professionals. I think I would have wanted to have seen the Allman’s, especially if this were 1971. That band was on FIRE that year. Just take a listen to the Live at the Fillmore East box set. Each note is alive with energy. Well, he’s with Duane, Berry, and Butch now, getting the band back together. I can only imagine how much fun that must be. Dreams, indeed.

Full disclosure: I never once saw the Allman Brothers live. Not once. I own quite a few live boots of theirs too. They do not support live taping or trading of their music, so shows, especially soundboards are very hard to come by. I’m lucky enough to know people who know people. I pulled out some tasty treats from my collection to showcase Gregg and the whole band, but I stayed in the Duane-era world that I love so much.

Next Monday night on my show I’m excited to have P-Funk guitarist RonKat Spearman in the studio to share his many road stories and play some music from his own band Katdelic. This ought to be a lot of fun. Tune in Monday, June 5th, 8-10PM on Radio Valencia.

Thanks to everyone who came out to Folio Books in Noe Valley last week to see me interview local music critic Joel Selvin about his book “Altamont”. Joel is a great interviewee. I ask him one question and he takes it from there. He almost seemed a little too happy to be there. He sold a few books, and a couple people even asked me to autograph it! Sure, why not?

Check out the playlist below and click the links above to stream or download last night’s show. Please share this page with all the music-lovers in your life.

Enjoy.
