A Season in Hell #120: Rin Tin Tiger Time

Tonight on the show I'm excited to host local folk-rocksters, Rin Tin Tiger! If you've spent any time at Sunday Streets in San Francisco, then you know them as the original folk rock trip that lights up the street. They always have a crowd around them, and they're starting to blow up the club circuit on the west coast.

With their first full-release, Toxic Pocketbook, from 2012, RTT has been making a lot of heads turn. I had the Sullivan brothers, Kevin (vox/guitar) and Sean (vox/bass) play guest DJ with me tonight. They played a lot of their own music, some of their contemporary favorites, and told some great road stories.

They're headlining at Cafe DuNord this Wednesday, and it's the MUST SEE show of the week.


Take this show and give it to a loved one.
Head to granny's house and stream this on her old Commodore 64.

A Season in Hell #119: Hellnation

I'm without my computer tonight and to be honest, I'm scared.

Hold me.

So I played all vinyl tonight. And damn, that was fun. I have a lot of music to choose from, so if i don't have my iTunes to keep me warm, the smooth, scratchy sounds emanating from my LPs will keep me toasty indeed.

As always lots of genres to enjoy. Some themes as well, including a set of ROCK that the Melvins have covered, but by the original bands! How amazing is that?  

You just know you want to download this gem. Well here ya go.

A Season in Hell #118: The First to Love Me

I'm usually all over the place as far as genres are concerned, and this week is really no exception. I played a lot of jazz tonight, in the first hour. That's a good thing. You need more jazz. You'll like what I played.

In the second hour I pulled out some tasty live treats, that'll make you hunger for more of what I've got to give you. You know that you love it. Stop squirming so much. Damn!
