Triple Play + 1 or the October That Ate My Brain

I hope to never get this far behind on posting again. Teaching six courses this semester means I always have about as many papers to grade as songs on these four playlists.

In recent weeks, I've saluted Jerry Lee Lewis, truck driving music, and baseball, mourned the passing of Solomon Burke and General Johnson, and interviewed Bobby Hussy from Kind Turkey Records and The Hussy. A terrific batch of new music has arrived recently: Drugs Dragons, Jonathan Burks, the City Champs, the Iggy Pop and James Williamson Kill City reissue, the Ugly Beats, Los Explosivos, the Moaners, Daddy Rockin' Strong: A Tribute To Nolan Strong and the Diablos, and a whole bunch of goodies from Norton Records (with more on the way).

I've opened with Halloween themes the past two weeks, and I'm planning an all-Halloween show next week, which features a star-studded lineup. I'm doing a phone interview with Sam Steining from Mondo Topless in advance of the band's Nov. 4 appearance at Frank's Power Plant. The aforementioned Jonathan Burks, who has a release party for Red Pulpy Mess on Oct. 30 at Linneman's Riverwest Inn, will perform live on the show. In addition, I'll be on for six hours straight next week. I'm subbing for Sonia during the Blues Drive, which follows Zero Hour. Tune in!
