In the there's-so-much-good-new-music-why-would-I-continue-to-share-older-shows-with-you department, first I would say I play plenty of newer artists on this show, thank you very much. And secondly, just take a listen to what I have on tap for you tonight!
This first band really blew me away when I discovered them somewhat recently. Hailing from Houston, Texas, Khruangbin is a fascinating trip that mixes rock and global influences including dub, surf and funk into their mostly instrumental tunes. And what a joy they are to look at!

This show from Austin City Limits, at the Moody Theater in Austin, September 13, 2021 is a great glimpse into a band that is hitting their creative peak. They have a lot of Spanish and Middle Eastern influences in their sound too. I have played them a few times on my Monday 8pm show, Hell's Kitchen Radio, and I'm excited to have this live show to share with you tonight.

Our headliner tonight is none other than son of a ladies man, Josh Tillman, aka: Father John Misty. I was first turned onto him when the FJM debut release "Fear Fun" was released, and I was immediately struck by his tongue-in-cheek lyrics and excellent storytelling. I was lucky to see him live a few times during his first tours, including at the Fillmore in SF, and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass.
This show is a digital broadcast from St. David's Hall in Cardiff, UK, is from April 3, 2022 featuring music from his the career of FTM. It's a stellar show with many remarkable performances of favorite songs.
