A Season in Hell
Hell's Kitchen Radio #216: Grab Bag

Sometimes it's just fun to go through my library at home and blindly pull some music. That's what tonight was all about. I did play a few requests, and the obligatory amazing Grateful Dead track to celebrate their 50th anniversary.
Full disclosure: I signed on for tickets to the Bay Area shows. Let's see how this pans out. I promised, at the beginning of the year, to write about my history listening to and seeing the Dead live. I'll get on that soon. There are some great stories in there.
This Saturday night I'll be spinning at St. Mary's Pub, 3845 Mission Street, in College Park (that's between Bernal Heights and the Excelsior Districts. You know, the neighborhood you never visit, but is totally AWESOME!!! I'll be spinning with the great Tophzilla! He and I used to DJ at the old Anon Salon parties in the 90s. Punk/Funk/Junk from 10-2AM. Come on down and have a pint.
