A sweet array of musical treats for your consumption tonight. No bands, just you and me. And just take a look at that playlist! Garage, Jazz, Hip Hop, Punk, Funk, Psych, Avant Garde!!! How does he do it, folks? This is no KFOG lowest-common-denominator-radio.

It's also the 50th anniversary of the birth of the Grateful Dead, so I through down a sweet jam from 1970 in the second hour. I'll be featuring some choice Dead cuts throughout the year, so if that's your thing, tune in during the second hour, and I'll treat you to a tasty treat from time-to-time.

I saw two brilliant shows last week. I had the pleasure of finally seeing my man-crush, Ty Segall, at the Great American Music Hall. I could go on and on about his performance. It was loud and fun, just as I was hoping. I stood front row, center, at the stage, surrounded by a bunch of teenage girls, and a rambunctious pit just behind (and at times ON) me. Three supporting bands, including Wand opened the show. Go see Wand when they're back in town.

Saturday night, I headed up to San Rafael to Terrapin Crossroads (formerly the Seafood Peddler), the home of Grateful Dead bassist, Phil Lesh. His new band, Communion, was playing that night. At 74 years old, there is no slowing him down. They played 4 hours! Seriously, there is no way this should have been possible. This guy was supposed to be dead years ago. What a great band. Fabulous jamming. Wonderful set and setting. If you're into this, then get up there when you have hankering a for jam band dance-fest.

Get out there and support live, local music, and local independent radio.
