A Season in Hell #189: You Say It's My Birthday

Listen to all of my motivational tapes, here, or just scroll down.

It's my birthday, so I get to do what I want. And what do I want to do? Well of course, I want to play music for you. I'm getting kind of guy. There are no gifts that I wish to receive any more in my life. Perhaps the gift of music. Always, and forever, It will be music. Music soothes the soul. Music lifts us to the highest high. Music is sexy.

My show is full of so many artists that I love and genres that I enjoy. There's something for everyone. Unless you like house music. There's no house music. So I guess if that's all that you enjoy, house music, then there isn't anything here for you to enjoy. My most humble and gracious apologies.

For the rest of us, enjoy.

A Season in Hell #188: Get Down Here!

Down in Front brought their amazingness (yes, that's a word) into the studio tonight. It was a mutual admiration society show tonight. I can assure you that we kept it clean-ish. They do spank me near the end of the interview though. I earned it, I can tell you that. Their stories are great, and their music is fresh and fun. You really do need to see them live though, to fully appreciate them in their full story-telling glory.


They're playing at Hotel Utah on Tuesday night, for their CD release party. Come on down. I'll be there. It's going to be a great show!

Second hour is mostly new music, and very guitar-driven. I'm sure you'll enjoying rockin' out as much as I did. I gave tickets away to see the Ferocious Few. Too late for you though. I give tickets away most weeks. Tune in and win!

Enjoy.

It's always a pleasure to host local bands, and this week we have a serious contender for future-massively-awesome-band-of-Amerika award, Everyone is Dirty. Lead singer, Sivan, dropped by to talk up the band, and play us some tunes from their latest release, Dying is Fun.

Second hour is a mix bag, and a whole lot of fun. Take a look at the playlist and click on the links above to stream or download the show.
