Thank very much to Pieta Brown for letting me call her in the 8:00 hour to talk about her new album Shimmer and her show Saturday, December 12th, at the Cedar Cultural Center:http://www.thecedar.org. Regular visitor from Dublin, Fran King, also had news today: his follow-up to the 2006 album we all loved is out this week! My Sweet Elixir was released today. Check the playlist for other new music, and catch the archive through December 21st to hear Pieta’s interview.
After 64 (yes!) consecutive months at the Hexagon Bar, First Saturday Surf Night at the Hex fired up the woodie one last time this week. Radio Rumpus Room hosted our favorite reoccurring local event for over three years, and dedicated the last hour of tonight’s show to the bands and fans who made this extraordinary run possible. Finally, high fives to Chris, Phil and Steve of host band Big Surf, who invited our participation in the first place! Thanks to one and all. After a break, we may see Surf Night reborn at another venue. If that happens you will hear about it at the Radio Rumpus Room!
