Hell’s Kitchen Radio #484: Hell Is Cuh-Ray-Zee

August 10, 10am

Let Hell Do The Driving  HERE 
Listen into all my shows here!

Having a chance to play these tunes for you brings great joy to Hell. There’s a lot of blues in the first hour, and the blues always lifts me up! Give your ears a chance to get used to something new. I read another article recently that spoke about how people get set in their musical ways by the age of 32, and most of that music is what they were listening to in high school and immediately after. 

I’m about to turn 52, and ten of the tunes I played tonight were new to me over the past six months or so. I mean seriously now. I get that we’re busy. I understand that for many music just runs in the background (I actually don’t understand this at all, but I know not everyone can be as obsessed with music as I am), and I get that life keeps on keepin’ on. I guess that’s why I will always be a strong proponent for the power and magic of non-commercial radio.

It’s DJs, who have the power to program their own shows, that give you a chance to sit back and enjoy the aural ride. Let us do the driving, so to speak. That’s ok. I don’t mind that. As a matter of fact I get really excited about that. Just listen to my mic breaks! 

A few notes about this show: Tom Waits is celebrating the 20th anniversary of both “Blood Money” and “Alice”, so you get a taste of that. Some new music from Spain’s Podium, new sounds from Ty Segall and Fantastic Negrito, as well as a premier from local guitarist/producer/engineer Myles Boisen, who will be on my show in two weeks, on Monday, August 22nd. Tune in.

You are also going to want to tune in next Monday, August 13th, 8PM PDST for my guest, rock photographer Jay Blakesberg, who will be in the studio talking up his latest book. I cannot wait for this interview. I have been a fan of Jay’s for many years. Check out his stuff and tune in.

The Radio Valencia studio is looking better each week: new paint job and soundproofing. We’re getting our logo on the awning out front next week! Thanks to our engineering team (aka: JazzNazz) we have the turntables and CD players working better than ever! But we still need you. This is an out-of-pocket venture. Bringing you great programming is our mission, and we can really use your help. Please consider donating to Radio Valencia by going to our PayPal (we are financially sponsored by SF IndieFest) and throwing a few bones our way. Every dime is spent on station needs (rent and equipment mostly). I thank you in advance. 

Time now to sit back and enjoy two hours of aural delights.

Conflux Cornucopia Cerebellum Cocktail Hour Episode #052: America Consumes Itself

August 5, 6pm

Podcasts

This show is a satirical and sardonic look at American consumerism, our addiction to television and the radicalization of our government and many of the people who subscribe to the extreme beliefs of one or the other. The fact that we have 31 flavors of ice cream to choose from, an infinite spectrum of entertainment options and society that glorifies the indignities of its citizens, The fact that we are pitted against one another though the use of media coercion and propaganda and that we willfully comply with the acting regime as if we had no other choice. This show is meant to sharpen your thinking and hopefully open paths of dialogue where we can engage in our differences with the hope of gaining insight from one another, rather than automatically dismissing the view of those who do not believe as you do. From that, I am a party of one. Join me and we are two, three….and maybe, just maybe, a way of existing harmoniously towards a better future…..or you can just buy something to make yourself feel better about a system that abandoned you long ago. The choice is yours. In the meantime, enjoy this sarcastic blend of music and comedy.

Hell’s Kitchen Radio #483: Internationally Known

July 27, 10am

Dig the Groovy Tunes  HERE 
Listen into all my shows here!

What do you get when your host has one kid on vacation and the other in daycare all day? You get a very well-prepared program, that’s what you get. I normally have a vague idea of how I want my show to go. I listen to music all of the time, so I always know about 25% of the songs I really want to share with you, leading into a show. I bring plenty with me, so it’s all about having the experience of what artist or genre may match up with what I am currently playing (let’s see Spotify really do that well!). This past week I’ve had a lot more time on my hands to listen to a bunch of vinyl that has needed my attention.

I also went to see Melvins last week, with Helms Alee opening. What an inspiring show that was! This program is more loud than normal. You get some fine sludge and doom, but you’re also going to get some fine angular post-punk, psych, jazz, and more. New music from Helms Alee, Othered, and Ty Segall. That’s why you tune in, and I thank you for that. I really do. 

Take a look at the playlist below, click the link above to stream, and share with your music-loving friends.
