First of all, do not listen to this show Thursday at 2 PM if you are depressed or inclined to be in any way. The songs will only tend to exacerbate the issue. Secondly, this is fair warning that for the next few shows only the playlist will be available the day of the show. I will not be blatting about how great the music is while I am taking a small vacation to a part of the planet I have never seen. Please continue to enjoy the music, and as you listen ponder the marvel of low power stations that allow playlists like the ones you will see from me. All killer, no filler.... The G Man.
With the exception of two short songs, the entire show is dedicated to an album released recently called Tomorrow is Today: A Tribute To The Australian Psychedelic Scene 1966-70. If you get out of the 'house' at all for your listening pleasure you will recognize some of the bands playing on this two-disc set: The Sand Pebbles, Tarantula, S.T. Mikael, and The Green Circles have some great cuts. Some great pop, too. Cool Breeze
We will start out with a driving acoustic song Riverside by America. Move on to Very Sleepy River from YerselfIsSteam by Mercury Rev. Slide off to Rivers of Babylon by Steve Earle, drift along to Riversong by Tonto's Expanding Headband, and float downriver On Christmas Eve with John Hartford. Included at various points of call: a twofer by The Green Pajamas, a jam by Canned Heat, a guitar freakout by The Elect, and a classic by Neil Young. Plus brand new country music like I like it by Promised Land Sound. Hey, two hours well spent...The G Man.
Going, Going, Gone... is the title of the last song on the show from the Rococo release by The Paparazzi. Through The Looking Glass is the source of the great old song Little Johnny Jewel midway through the show by Siouxsie & The Banshees. Besides those tasty treats: A song sandwich featuring Le Chavalier and The Police. Tracks by obscure bands off of old compilation records of the eighties put out by the labels: The Enigma Variations, Sharp Cuts, Attack of The Killer B's, The Rebel Kind, and I.R.S. Records Greatest Hits Vol. 2 & 3. Plus The Cramps, J Geils, and some funny little instrumentals. All in just two hours Saturday morning @2. Cool Breeze
"I press on toward the goal to win the prize..." Love is the key that opens the door to all that is fair and right and good. The lesser emotions swirl at the edge and distract. Seasons change, lessons are learned, time is the great invariant. Get a little schooling via some rock and roll, courtesy of Iron Butterfly, The Moody Blues, Paul Kantner, The Byrds, Ry Cooder, and about 24 other bands! The G Man
A nice balance between instrumentals and vocals in this two hour set. Two long live cuts by Colin L. Orchestra and Camera are compelling workouts. I am doing a krackatoa song sandwich in there, three cuts by them in this show. Plus some catchy ditties by Secret Birds, Souvenir Driver, and The Upsidedown. Check the playlist at the left at 12:00:01 for the full song set, and enjoy your overnight. Cool Breeze
The first of five shows in which I focus mainly on 2013 releases. I do include a 2012 compilation and some 80's alternative cuts that I am playing for the first time, thanks to the miracle of digitally recording vinyl records. So this show is full of quirky instrumentals and inpenetrable lyrics. I'm just sayin'... I have three songs by krackatoa, and two long songs by a band name I cannot type and Lucas Perny. Plus Albert Hammond Jr., The Spectacular Fantastic, and The Rovers. Join the fun at 2... Cool Breeze
Never put off until tomorrow what you can accomplish today. The old saw, modified by your benevolent government man- rock and roll govenment, that is. Do not associate me with those completely-lacking-in-common-sense individuals inside the beltway. Rather, lets talk about Deep Purple, Blue Cheer, Pink Floyd, and all the other colorful artists on the show Thursday. Ever get to the point where you say to yourself, 'I wish I had said something about that before now'? You can relate, then, to the songs playing by Led Zeppelin, Dave Mason, The Growlers, or The Coal Men. 21 songs, ranging from 1:42 to 17:08, produced from 1930 to 2014, every one a boon. Enjoy, The G Man
Hugh Hopper was a member of The Soft Machine and an almost constant participant in the Cantebury progressive sound. We will hear from him and also Hatfield and The North, a short-lived but influential band from the seventies. Mandrake Memorial fills out our all seventies first hour. Hour two is dominated by Davis Sylvian and his 1999 release Approaching Silence. We'll also have some time for Bark Psychosis, Shovels and Rope, and Albert Hammond, Jr, with his fabulous instrumental Spooky Couch. You may also hear that last song at the beginning of next week's show, which kicks off a five-week long set of tunes dominated by recent releases from new indie eclectic artists. Mostly people I had never even heard of until I heard the song I am playing. That's always nice...Cool Breeze
The show begins with the Santana song Treat because that is indeed what you are in for Thursday at 2. On to Crosby, Stills, & Nash, Chicago, The Beach Boys, Fleetwood Mac, Emerson, Lake, & Palmer, It's A Beautiful Day, Nilsson, The Kinks, The Everly Brothers, and, well, you get the idea. It is the kind of show where you have a hard time imagining someone wrote a better song than the one you are hearing.... Cool Breeze
