A Personal Connection Type Show

G ManI decided to put together a show with artists that I have had one-on-one contact with, from the usual concerts, to interviews, chance meetings, personal correspondance (in the case of the overseas folks), and even relatives. Fun stuff ahead. Starting the show with Blue Mountain, The Blue Band, and Bo Ramsey, to get a solid midwest vibe going, and then its on to Cracker, The Host Country, The Soul Searchers, Greg Brown, and many more. 37 songs in all, I think, and lots of great jams in store for you. 2 PM or 2 AM, I got you covered.

I Got Some Things I Gotta Do....

RRBum bum bum, bum bum bum bumm. The drums are beating a rhythm drawing you ever nearer to the next Rainbow Rider experience. Upcoming: Rainbow Rider # 333. Whoa, half way to #666. That will be an interesting show, but nevermind that, listen to the one this weekend. I have two long tunes by Speed, Glue, & Shinki, and Red Temple Spirits. I just purchased that limited edition of theirs from Independant Project records, and it is beautiful. If you like psychedelic post-punk, this is the holy grail. I am playing my favorite Sopwith Camel, Strawberry Alarm Clock, Other Half, and Psychobud music too. No matter what the length of the song, you are going to trip out over this stuff. Nothing like a Cool Breeze to light your night.

Spotlight: Sixties Pop

G ManThe next spotlight show shines its steely beacon of light down upon the sixties, and the pop single. Most of these songs came off of tiny vinyl records with big holes in the middle. Three cuts by The Doors, The Chambers Brothers, and The Blues Magoos made the fm circuit, due to their length. But, yeah, I have like 60 songs in three hours, so they are going to fly by. If you have reached the age I am, you will likely be singing along to many of these tunes. If those three bands don't thrill ya, try Frank Sinatra, The Happenings, Bobby Darin, or The Hollies. Pure pop pleasure from when the engineers and producers had a mandate to get the song on the radio. The G Man
