All right my followers/creepers here ya go:
ADHDJ’s Teen Dream H.S. Records

1. Jonathon Larsen- “Rent: The Musical” Soundtrack (no shame)
2. Smashing Pumpkins- Siamese Dream
3. Pulp- Different Class
4. Manic Street Preachers- The Holy Bible
5. Chemical Brothers- Dig Your Own Hole
6. Spiritualized- Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space
7. Radiohead- OK Computer
8. Various Artists- No Alternative (recently rediscovered and still pretty into it)
9. Belle and Sebastian- Tigermilk
10. Elvis Costello- Best of

Noting the sad lack of female artists here/internalized sexism but I do want to point out that the No Alternative compilation introduced me to Patti Smith which was pretty invaluable later on….

Malderor – Psych Rock and Cutty Bangs!

January 11, 12pm

Today was the beginning of Rainpocalypse 2017 or something, and it was pouring down buckets as Malderor made his way to the station. He prepared a slate of mopey, droney, shoegaze-y psych-rock, and he’s joined in the studio by DJ Deathwish, who is slightly worse-for-wear.  Malderor stopped and bought Deathwish a “Cutty Bang” from a nearby ghetto liquor store, and a radio show ensues.  (In the last hour we get away from the psych a bit, and play a bunch of goofy covers. Stay tuned for that!)

Malderor – New Year’s Day! Wonky Technology and Gospel Undertones!

January 4, 12pm

A whole bunch of folks asked me if I was doing my show on New Year’s Day. Of course I was. If I’m going to be hungover and moping around playing records, I may as well be doing it live on the internet radio waves. I didn’t have much planned, aside from playing a bunch of tracks off recent vinyl purchases. Deathwish and CW and 5/7ths of Cheap Hooch dropped in. I played new-and-old tracks from Prince, Singers & Players, Junkyard, Mott the Hoople, and went off in a random gospel direction! Check out the stream below!

For the new year I thought I would take a time out from new music and delve deep into my music library. I have to admit this was one of my favorite shows to host. Certainly my best of the year. HA! Every week my audience appears to grow. Thanks so much for the support, and please keep tuning in every Monday 8-10PM. Be sure to tell music lovers everywhere!

This year I want to focus on interviewing more bands, so if you’re in a band or know someone who is, please contact me and let’s make this thing happen. I also want to host a special on the history of West African Funk. There’s so much beyond Fela that I really want to share with you. I also plan on bringing back an old favorite which dropped by the wayside: Bootleg Blast! This is where I share my latest live show that I’ve discovered. This will happen in the second hour so stick around. There’s a tasty live treat in this broadcast, actually. Later in the year I’m hoping to also resurrect “Rock Fight”, where I host a 4+ hour live bootleg battle. My buddy, and legendary sound engineer John Karr will try to best me. Let’s see how far he gets. Look for this show sometime this summer.

Finally, it’s time once again for my annual “Run for the Lilies” contest, where you dear listener send me the names of 10 famous people you believe will meet their demise by the end of this calendar year. The only rule: you may not participate in how they meet their maker. Please email your list of 10 names by Sunday, January 29 to

I’ll announce the winner of the “Run for the Lilies 2016” on Monday, January 30th. And what a year that was! I’m expecting our winner to possibly have a record number of names on that list. Oy.

Take a look at the playlist below and then click on the links above to stream or download the podcast.

Let’s have an excellent 2017. When everything appears to be falling apart go back to the music and hold your loved ones closer than ever before.

December 22, 2pm

2016 has been the craziest year in the last ten years or so. So many entertainers have past on, a lot of good music festivals, but so much good music came out this year too. Here’s my Best of 2016 playlists from my radio show. I crammed as much music as I could in a two hour show. I tried to pick songs that were less than two and a half minutes long. Then the songs I couldn’t squeeze into my playlist, I did place an “honorable mention” list as well. Sorry if I missed some bands/albums, but they know they’re good anyway. HA!

Here’s my latest TOP 5 from Razorcake Magazine #95. As you know, Razorcake is the only bona fide 501(c)(3) non-profit music magazine in America and has been around since 2001. Razorcake is also going through their fundraiser right now and you can donate to them at So please, donate if you can and pass the word around for me. Thanks.

THANK YOU EVERYBODY that contributed music for my radio show and the station this year. Hope you get what you want for Christmas and party down for NYE! Be safe out there and have fun. See you next year on the airwaves or at a show. Thanks again and HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL! CHEERS! Your friend, DJ Naked Rob | San Francisco, California
