I’m doing that thing again where I plan the show in advance and then at the last moment decide to throw parts of it out the window. I’ve got a lot of excellent local music in the show this week, including several bands playing at this weekend’s WRIR and The Commonwealth of Notions Presents: Volume Seven. Soooooo much good stuff. Thank you for listening!

I guess my brain was in a bit of a time warp this week. I had a bunch of songs pop into my head that made me feel nostalgic, so now there are a bunch of songs in today’s playlist from 1993-1995. So in addition to more recent releases by Grass Panther, Boss Hog, and Blondie, you’ll also hear some of my favorite tunes by Swirlies, Rodan, Urusei Yatsura, Seam, Polvo, and Shellac. Thanks for listening! I hope you enjoy the music! Let’s keep each other safe in this big ugly world.

Happy Thursday! No theme. Just music. Heavenly, Nina Miranda, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Hot Lava, Galaxie 500, and my favorite song written by Carole King. Enjoy the show!

It’s that time of year again! Random stuff starts blooming, my allergies kick in hardcore, and then my asthma flares up and I cough a bunch. All of this to say that although today may be a particularly Kathleen-Turner-esque broadcast, it will still be me at the controls. And I’ll be bringing you my anthem for summer!!! Thanks for listening!!!

Wake Up, You! I spent the past few days digging deep into the interwebs to find more music that I haven’t played before. So this week I’ve got music from 1970s Nigeria, 1960s France, present-day Iceland, video game themes via marching bands, local music, mostly upbeat stuff. Have a great Thursday!

This week’s show feels kind of like comfort food. I’ve had this Lucy Dacus song stuck in my head for a week now, so I figure I may as well play it, right? 🙂
I also have Tobin Sprout, The Ronettes, Bauhaus, Juana Molina, and much more! I hope you enjoy the show!!!

I had a whole bunch of music pulled for this week, and then I got talking with Princess Beetfarmer & JR Tympanum, and they mentioned some new world music I hadn’t heard about yet. And then Mike Rutz, Host of Activate, asked me if I’d like to give away a pair of tickets to see Animal Collective at the Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville on May 20. So I switched a whole bunch of stuff around, added a few new songs, and hopefully made something fun for you this morning.

In the queue: They Might Be Giants, Oumou Sangare, Matthew E. White, Liniker E Los Caramelows, a few songs related to Russia, that internet mashup of Ozzy and Earth, Wind And Fire, AND A CHANCE TO WIN TICKETS TO ANIMAL COLLECTIVE!
