A Season in Hell
A Season in Hell #133: International Playboy
April 29, 2013 @ 8:00pm


A rare night without any guests. You know what that means, more music for you. Tonight, unbeknownst to me, I brought a bunch of local artists. The first hour is full of great local sounds from the past 20 years or so. And yes, I consider the Melvins a local band.

The second hour is mostly live, as I've received so many great live shows lately , I just had to do my duty and share some goodness with you all.

This Friday, May 3rd, is the annual James Brown birthday celebration at KFJC, known as "Doin' it to Death". It's a 24 hour party, that I'll be co-hosting. I do my own slot from 6-10PM (PDST). Tune in and get ready to get down...and get back up again.

After the KFJC party, I'm heading over to the RV studios for a live, in-studio Ask Dr Hal show and RV fundraiser. If you're around, you should come down. It's a great way to experience live radio. We're going from 11-1AM.

Saturday night I'm MCing the fashion show for Eat and Be Mary, in Oakland. Check out the link for more info. Come down, and bring old clothes you want to swap out. This is a great way to play.

Next Monday, May 6th, on A Season in Hell, my buddy, and writer/editor for So What, the official fanzine of Metallica, Steffan Chirazi, will be in the studio with me paying "homage" to the passing of the late (not so great) Margaret Thatcher. We'll be playing some of her favorite music from that era, along with some tributes to her old golfing partner, Ronald Reagan.

This should be a hoot!

In the meantime, kick back, chill out and enjoy two fabulous hours from Monday night.
