Playlist for 3/26/10: Children by the Million

Sorry, belated in posting my playlist this week. New music from The Boston Spaceships and Gwil Owen, a theme in honor of this past weekend's (very fruitful to my record collection) WMSE & Friends Rummage Sale, and a tribute to the late, greatAlexChilton. I smell a baseball theme happening on this Friday’s show.

Playlist for 3/12/10: The Killer and other action shakers

Action-packed show this week. The 1:00 hour featured interviews with Jack and Dan from the Carolinas to talk about the Townes Van Zandt Tribute and Birthday Bash going on last night at Linneman’s in honor of the late, great man and a phoner with author Joe Bonomo. Read my review of Jerry Lee Lewis: Lost and Found here. I played an hour of songs inspired by Joe’s books afterward, and both the interview and rowdy music were a blast. My wife and I are heading to spring training in Florida on Tuesday, so no Zero Hour for me next week. You will be in capable hands of all-star substitute DJ Good John, who has agreed to sit in for me. I started the show with a set from Florida-based performers in honor of our trip to the Sunshine State.

Playlist for 3/5/10: Weird Hot Days

In honor of Sunday’s Rockabilly Chili extravaganza, I began the first hour with songs about hot and heat and assorted things you might find at my favorite annual WMSE event. My stomach is ready for the madness – is yours? New music this week from Veronica Falls, Quasi and Chicago’s recently reunited Blacks. Tune in next week when I interview author Joe Bonomo, who has penned books on the Fleshtones and Jerry Lee Lewis and has a forthcoming 33 1/3 entry on AC/DC’s Highway to Hell.
