info_outline #285 - "Wherever You Go" 10/30/2020
#285 - "Wherever You Go" So it's the end of the month and I'm cramming out a 3+ hour show, so hopefully you enjoy it, because it's got a brand new track from Fury In The Slaughterhouse and their first new album in 13 years. I liked it so much, I played it twice. Enjoy!
info_outline #283 - "Only Good Things" 09/27/2020
#283 - "Only Good Things" It's been a bear of a month, and I'm sorry to say, I just haven't been in the mindset to record a show before now, but I was able to rally and put forth a show for the end of the month, a great big 3 hour bugger, so enjoy it.
info_outline #282 - "If You're Doing It Right" 09/04/2020
#282 - "If You're Doing It Right" I took a bit of time off, just to sort of mentally recharge my batteries. It's been a shitty month, a shitty year, and generally this year can go fucking die in a fire a thousand times over, but we gotta get through it.
info_outline #276 - "Love Me As I Am" 06/27/2020
#276 - "Love Me As I Am" End of the month shows sometimes get a bit abbreviated, and this one is no different. Three hours spent talking about the history of funk means the last show of the month gets shortened by half an hour or so, but still, a new show for you to enjoy, including our friend Volker's 3 Miles To Essex project, and their single now available on all your other music platforms. Enjoy!
info_outline #274 - Funk (1965-1986) (Scene Show/Deep Dive) 06/14/2020
#274 - Funk (1965-1986) (Scene Show/Deep Dive) With the passing of Little Richard last month, I decided I wanted to do a deep dive into funk. Turns out that's a pretty big topic, so this is a pretty big episode, and I wrap up in 1986, where funk starts to evolve into a bunch of other things. Take a listen, and if you enjoy and want a part 2 on funk, drop me a line. Otherwise, sit back and enjoy three hours on the history of funk!
info_outline No main show this week 05/27/2020
No main show this week Taking a week off because of storage needs and the way the month is structured, but if you'd like a show, there's a new show up over at my , where for just $5 a month, you can get an additional show every week. Consider joining, it helps a lot! - your support means the world to me. I'll see everyone next week.
info_outline #272 - "You Gave Me Power" 05/23/2020
#272 - "You Gave Me Power" All sorts of fun things here, including: a song I can't believe I've never played, a funk album from our friend Gero, a new remix from our friend Volker's 3 Miles To Essex project, and a handful of brand new things. Join us, won't you?
info_outline #271 - "Fallen Empires Are Ruling" 05/15/2020
#271 - "Fallen Empires Are Ruling" So this marks two months of lockdown, and while the idiot-in-chief thinks it's more important for people to work than to live, I absolutely disagree. Two hours of music to keep yourself sane to, coming right up...
info_outline #270 - "Strange Order Of Monsters" 05/08/2020
#270 - "Strange Order Of Monsters" Back to my usual late night madcap hijinx, here's another episode recorded post midnight, still under lockdown, trying not to go out of my damn mind. We also mark the passing of a soulful voice of a pop hit almost everyone has forgotten they know, and one of the legit founders of electronic music.
info_outline #267 - "Small Doors Open To Big Rooms" 04/10/2020
#267 - "Small Doors Open To Big Rooms" I'm still here. California is still standing. We aren't at the worst of the epidemic here in the United States, but it's pretty fucking bad, no lies. I worry for those in New York the most, who are currently hit the hardest.
info_outline #266 - "These Are The Days" 04/03/2020
#266 - "These Are The Days" So I'm here. I think. Maybe. What day is it? Let's check the calendar. Huh. It's technically a Friday as I record/post this. I've barely been out of the house for three weeks. So I made this particular episode to remind me how a week works. Maybe it'll help you also.
info_outline #265 - "No Space To Rent" 03/27/2020
#265 - "No Space To Rent" So I don't want to talk too much about the epidemic crossing the globe, but I will say we're still under shelter-in-place here in California, and that the US is now leading in cases of the virus. But all I can do is make music and hope it keeps people entertained. So enjoy a four hour show. Because hell, why not...
info_outline #262 - "This Is The Sound That We Make" 02/28/2020
#262 - "This Is The Sound That We Make" So we lead off with the brand new Biffy Clyro single, because, well, I love Biffy Fucking Clyro... but there's also a massive block of synthwave stuff designed to evoke the 1980s, which hopefully you'll love. And an RIP section for David Robuck, of Mazzy Star.
info_outline #261 - "A Little Too Far To Be Close" 02/20/2020
#261 - "A Little Too Far To Be Close" So this isn't a typical episode. The entire back half of the episode is dedicated to a Midwestern band that I've often felt deserves to be a bunch bigger. That band is The Samples. They're also on tour for much of this year, all over the whole country, even out here in California, so I'm going to see them live! Again! For the first time in 20+ years! You should too!
info_outline #260 - "You Shine Like Truth" 02/14/2020
#260 - "You Shine Like Truth" Well, I knew I wanted to wait until Friday to do the show, but I didn't do anything particularly Valentine's Day-ish for it. It's just another mix of music designed to tickle your earholes. Tell your friends about the show. Make them download it. I need to be loved.
info_outline #259 - "Violent Society" 02/07/2020
#259 - "Violent Society" The sun is starting to set on the American Empire, and our time as a banana republic seems to be oh so quickly approaching. We'll see if we can hold out. Maybe we'll bust out some guillotines. Those of us in the Deep State continue to be subversive. Get used to it.
info_outline #258 - Headed West Into The Black" 01/31/2020
#258 - Headed West Into The Black" So end of the month and that means the show is either too short or too long... this one's too short... It runs about an hour forty rather than the full two hours, but wanted to give you a show to enjoy none the less while our late-stage empire collapses here in the US...
