A Season in Hell #93: You Blew It

After last weeks' Rock Fight 8 I really had to have an easy come down with some studio cuts. This week features some absolutely unbelievable new sounds from some great groups you've probably haven't heard of. The second hour features some very young soulful women, an African Queen, the Godfather of Soul, The Psych Kings of the UK, and much, MUCH more!

Also, I was visited by some of my former students tonight. When I teach I don't tell them about my current radio station. I wait until they've graduated before I bring up the more stylized side of me. It was great to hear about their college exploits and connect with them on another level.

They caught a really great show. Indeed, the segues are tight, the grooves are seamless, and the selection is tip top notch.


Per the usual, you can stream the show here.

This Sunday, July 1st, Radio Valencia will be broadcasting live from in front of Stage Werx for Sunday Streets. This is one of the best community events SF has ever had. They're closing down Valencia Street from 14th to 24th, and 24th all the way down to around Harrison. We'll be broadcasting from 11-4pm that day. We'll have Radio Valencia t-shirts for sale and lots of DJs on hand, including me!

Come by and say hello.

A Season in Hell #92: ROCK FIGHT 8!!!

Here we go again.

Every June and December Rotten Ronnie Donovan of Firehouse Kustom Posters and I host Rock Fight, a four hour deluge into our bootleg vaults. Ever since Ron was forced to get on the wagon the shows have been superb (I still kick his ass each and every time). Tonight was one of the BEST.

Lot's of guests tonight, including a legendary live music recorder (he who cannot be named), local guitar gunslinger Eric McFadden and his lovely Super D, Metallica official fanzine "So What" editor Steffan Chirazi, and a phone interview with Butthouse of Limbomaniacs. WOW!

This and some amazing live bootleg music too. The fourth hour is the premier of the newly released (unofficial of course) Led Zeppelin "Snowblind" from 03-20-75 Vancouver, which Ron Donovan did the art for.

Listen in and decide for yourself who won this edition of ROCK FIGHT! (it was me).

It's pretty obvious by the looks of who played what that I once again SLAYED Ron. Listen in to the music and the banter, and I'm sure you'll agree.

A Season in Hell #90: Ragi da Lawyer takes your calls

From time to time Ragi da Lawyer feels that it's important to allow his "friends" to receive free legal advice. Instead of them being able to come see him in his office however, he has them call up my radio show. Tonight was one of those nights.

The vivacious Phat Man Dee phoned in all the way from Pittsburgh, PA!

Also, since we broadcasted the Memorial Day BBQ and Hootnanny at El Rio last week, I'll be throwing down week 8/8 of my 40th Anniversary Europe 72 Celebration. This is one sweet jam to wrap it all up.
