I have lined up about 25 to 30 songs for Thursday @ 2 PM which will delight the most discerning consumer of rock and roll. I have mini-sets of songs centered around bands like West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, The Green Pajamas, Merle Haggard, Bauhaus, and The Kinks. I will be spicing up the afternoon with Blue Mountain, Ginger Baker, Love Battery, and The Strange Flowers. Plus an outtake from the album Days Of Wine And Roses by The Dream Syndicate. Come genre-hopping with... The G Man!
How about a little party to celebrate the newest anniversary of the show. #260 contains some new-to-the-show bands like The Churchills, It's All Meat, Chico Magnetic Band, The Mystic Tide, and Saint Steven. I am also playing songs off of some relatively obscure records by The Glass Family, El Alamo, Elderberry Jak, The Sapphire Thinkers, and Ron Wood. The rest of the music is just plain good. No two ways about it. I am looking for someone to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me they remember my very first show. Check in, check it out, and enjoy the music. Cool Breeze
If I only knew the rules...Oh well. At least we have each other. Thanks to the Iowa caucuses coming to a facility near you on Feb. 1, I have had this amazing media bias thrown in my face like the hot kiss at the end of a wet fist. It makes me realize that I myself am biased. I have a problem with authority. I have a problem with people who do not recognize my authority; I am the G Man, the only government you will ever need on Planet Rock & Roll. Fortunately for you, I have proof...
This is the lead-in show to my five year anniversary celebration for next week's show. It is a bit of a guilty pleasure, because unlike most of my shows, this one is full of well-known songs by well-known bands. Lots of my favorite songs here. Not so next week. This plays like a greatest hits collection over the past 50 years by album-oriented-rock bands. The playlist has everything except for the hidden track I snuck into the show. Cool Breeze
I am going to play about 30 songs on Thursday's show, and here are two relevant bits: They are all new to the show, and I have acquired them all in 2016. I am playing The Eagles, Donovan, and Matthew Sweet. I have a three-fer by The Turtles. Most of the rest of the show is dedicated to recently produced tunes by bands such as Helvetia, Leon Bridges, Ethan Johns, The London Souls, Fur For Fairies, The Cool Ghouls, Jason Isbell, JD McPhearson, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. I saw an exciting performer Sunday by the name of Dan Tedesco, who leads off the three o'clock hour of the show. Join me for some world-class rock and roll. The G Man
...from this love I've found. So sayeth Mother's Worry, and I concur. For this show I am pulling out some favorites, as I wind my way up to my five-year anniversary show on Jan. 23rd. I lead off the show with my number one song of 2015, Room of Strange Love by Haunted Leather. From there to Psychic Ills, Alt-J, Golden Gunn, Opal, Dream Syndicate, and even a Turtles song. Plus some obscure rock by T. Swift & The Electric Bag, Plan 9, and Phantasia. Heavily progressive stylistically. You won't be snoozing through this show. Cool Breeze
This show is getting on the road as I type this.... listen for tunes from David Gilmore, Etta James, Wire, The Grateful Dead, and The Smiths. Let your love light loose, is the name of the game today. Enjoy. The G Man
Happy New Year to everyone reading this, and through you all to the rest of the world. I am intentionally starting off 2016 with Sweet Dreams by Captain Beyond because they set a high standard for excellence in music, and because we all need to dream, right here, and right now. I dream of world peace, and the cessation of force by one group against another. You keep going with yours, too. And long live rock and roll. 21 of the 27 songs in #257 are from 2015, including my song of the year, Room of Strange Love, by Haunted Leather. Plus songs from perennial favorites John Lodge, Paul Weller, Buddy Guy, Blur, and Mark Knopfler. One hour and fifty-five minutes of high frequency, elevated quality, kickin' tunes. Cool Breeze
In my family, if something is good then you say so , but if something is better than good, you say its 'goob'. Just so you know what we're talking about here. Got that term back in 1989 from The Bodeans, and they are leading off the set. I have two songs from The Black Ryder and Ben Vaughn that made my list of the years best music. Things, Leon Thomas, and Boy's Life will probably be unknown to most of you, but I am making up for that by having The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Big Brother, CSNY, JA, Little Feat, Moody Blues, and Loggins & Messina in the mix. Some great music for the afternoon hours, maybe as a lead in to football, or nighttime music if you are awake for the 2 AM replay. Either way- Happy New Year to you all. The G Man
Man, woman, birth, death, and infinity. The great circle of life. In time, all things get placed in a larger context. I had an opportunity a couple of months ago to ponder the music that played at a funeral. It led me to consider just exactly what I would want people to hear at my own. That list, as it turns out, was way too long for one show. And to top it all off, after studying the list I discovered that it looks completely inappropriate for any such service. So really what the show is, is songs you will never hear at a funeral. Which lands right in my normal wheelhouse of 'WTF?'. Go figure. You will, however, get treated to songs off of Dark Side of The Moon, Eat A Peach, Days of Future Passed, Super Session, Living The Blues, and Blows Against The Empire. I'm excited...The G Man
