Another Holiday: Playlists for 12.2.22 & 12.9.22


Two weeks of playlists for you because, yes, it is that time of the semester. Quite a few new releases, from the likes of Movie Movie with a groovy, groovy holiday song that you can hear in the fantastic video above , Danny Boy & His Big Britches (Danny Kurtz --- Backsliders, Phil Lee, etc.), who deliver a whopping dose of rock'n'roll, Xposed 4heads with a new Christmas ditty, power pop long-haulers Sloan, and an awesome archival release of Hozac from the Revelons and much more.

Two tributes to this week to musicians who passed away way, way too soon: Peter Cooper, who was also a noted music journalist and frequent collaborator with Eric Brace, and Jess Barr from Slobberbone

And I'm Back: Playlist for 11.18.22

Returning to Blogspot for playlist posting and assorted rambling -- can you feel the excitement? Dig this episode, my return after many teaching-related absences this fall. I played a few new albums, including ones by Joecephus and The George Jonestown Massacre, Bird Streets and the dynamite new Gear Fab compilation, Psychedelic States: The Carolinas in the '60s. I also did a belated and brief tribute to Jerry Lee Lewis. I just might do another belated tribute next week.

It was a Discovery Radio week, so Zero Hour starts about 30 minutes into the archive. Hoping to do more than post playlists on the site, which I kind of used to do when I first started the blog, We'll see -- hope to see you around! I accidentally deleted my reading list, so please let me know if there are blogs, etc. I should add. Thanks to Tim "Quixotronic" Demeter for the groovy, outstanding, tip-top new blog logo.
