Thanks again to Ron & Jean of the show formerly known as Radio Rumpus Room for filling in for me last week. Today, Angie Pykonen from KFAI’s In Your Ear sat in with me. We previewed the upcoming Freehweelin’ 1st Friday show at the 331 with some songs by the 99’ers and some of Zippy Caplan’s groups including the Surf Dawgs, The Litter, and White Lightning.
New releases included new one’s from Leon Russell & Elton John, Rick Holmstrom with Juke Logan and Stephen Hodges, Keller & The Keels, The Surf Dawgs, and The 99ers.
Click on “more” to review the entire playlist. Also, you can listen to the archive of the show by clicking on the playback of your choice. It starts right after the news, about 4 minutes into the file.
Once again we camped out at the Dub Club Tiki Bar for the annual “Echo Beach” dog days of summer special. This is a bit different kind of Echo Chamber — as we actually played some rock ‘n roll: that twangy, instrumental surf rock (from the likes of the Ventures and the Del-Tones). Then, once the martinis were well shaken, we got into some soul and funky R&B. Things were really cookin’ and the Tiki Bar was heavy with kali smoke. So we cooled things down with a variety of lounge, world, and swanky jazz…and a bit of electro dub.
Thanks to local songwriter John Wills:http://www.myspace.com/johnwillsmusic for stopping by at 11am. His new album, Rose, will be celebrated with a party at the 331 Club September 11th. We also heard new music from Isobel Campbell Mark Lanegan, The Pistol Whippin’ Party Penguins, and more!
