Ever have a song get stuck in your head?

Ever have an old song bring back a vivid memory of a time and place?

The vibrations don't stop when they reach your ears.

They resonate in your brain and strike sparks as they mix with thoughts and sensations.

They can dig in and set up a long-term residency.

Here was another batch of tunes. Maybe some of them are returning to you like old friends. Maybe some are new to you and will stick around.

It's not up to me, and it's not always up to you...

'Ohhh yeaahh... THIS album...

'How long has it been since I played this one? Jeez, how long has it been since I THOUGHT of this one?'

This week's show had that sort of 'use it or lose it' aspect to it.

Grabbing some of the music from my archives that for whatever reason I usually skim past - - and yet I never got rid of it.

Some treasures and memories. Barring several exceptions the average release year here was likely about 1995, give or take.

Hope you enjoyed.

... I suppose one has to be careful though, once that particular genie is let out of the bottle.

Let's hear it for the girls...

This show stacked up a big batch of female vocalists, most of the tracks from the American 'Girl Groups' era of the mid-fifties to the mid-sixties.

In typical fashion, there's some selections that stray into exotic locales, head deeper into Soul/R&B grooves, are of a more contemporary vintage serving to pay tribute to the sound, or are more recent recordings from ladies who were part of the scene back in the day.

Hope you enjoyed it!

All of your questions, comments or suggestions for future shows are all welcome. Please click the 'E-mail me' link over in the sidebar.

What is the message? What is it's meaning?

When a vocalist takes the microphone, what do you receive?

Here was a smattering of songs of different moods and different styles, all with a message to convey.
(Just like any batch of tunes)

Some are playful, some are rich with 'intent'.

Did the few instrumentals convey as much as songs with lyrics?

Discuss.
(There are no wrong answers)

Merely a blatant bop down memory lane.

Funny how even some of the tunes that may have seemed abhorrent back in the day can fit like a comfortable old pair of shoes nowadays...

It's a guest deejay slot this week in Berkeley!!

- - ANNOUNCEMENT!! - -

THURSDAY 9/27/07
9am - NOON (Pacific Time)
'The In Crowd' guest DJ slot on KALX 90.7 FM in Berkeley
( http://kalx.berkeley.edu ),
live on the air with Sex 14s.

As if another visit back to the bay area from whence I came isn't excitement enough for me, this upcoming
THURSDAY the 27th,
barring incident, I'll be on the air sitting in with my dear friend
Sex 14s, spinning tunes during his morning timeslot on KALX.
Last time I did this was back in January, and Sex was gracious enough to turn his show over to me for the duration. It was just WAY too much fun.

(KALX ad image by DJ Craig Baxter.) ⤴

I hope you'll listen in, if you have the opportunity. It's been a while since I've had the live radio experience I love so much.
Could be I'll suck, which I'm sure would also be entertaining...

radio boise playlist for week of 08/20/07

This show wandered briefly through some jazz (including a brief farewell to the legendary
Max Roach), some old R&B, and some outlaw C&W before settling into it's main theme:

Songs that S.P.E.L.L. out their T.I.T.L.E.S.

I've completely swiped this week's theme from one of my old radio D.J. pals at K.A.L.X. in Berkeley, the lovely Jesse Luscious.

Jesse recently polled other KALX DJ's to pool their vast musical knowledge for candidates for such a theme show.
(In my defense, I made a few of the contributions to that list, O.K.?)

It was fun putting it all together. Hope you E.N.J.O.Y.E.D.

Questions, comments or suggestions for future shows are all welcome!

I get to indulge my whims, pick the music that moves me at the moment, and let it fall together in a manner that suits my tastes.

The result couldn't possibly suit everyone, but I follow my own happiness confident that the show will strike the right people the right way.

It's a great privilege, and I thank you for being involved in the process.

It was just another meandering flight from one point to another, with no particular destination in mind.

Life is grand, life is large, and filling it with music only makes it more so, sez I.

It feels good, so do it.

(And I'm happy to help if I can)

Music may also manage to be a fitting reminder, as well, when your life decides to get in your face and mar your mood.

The music flows, the music changes, just like life.

Is there a question about the music?

Hmmm. Sometimes I just get to feelin' ornery, I guess.

Fulla piss 'n' vinegar. Ready to raise a ruckus, and ready to throw some wild curve balls and see how they fly.

Loud music, difficult music, troubled music, and soft and pretty music that shouldn't quite fit in.

Beautiful Noise. What fun.

The notes and the songs and the moods and ideas tumble and change and flow.

You jump into that stream wherever you may and sail along for the ride as long as you do, your attention drifting from the music to your own activity and back again, as one informs the other. Maybe occasionally asking, 'How did we get from there to here?'

Hope it was a pleasant trip.

radio boise playlist for week of 06/18/07

If you grew up in a country where homes didn't tend to have garages, you didn't get to call that loud music on the the little scratchy 45 single 'garage rock'.

If you were in the UK or parts of Europe, you might have called that same music 'Freakbeat'.

But really, the genre labels and ever-morphing subsets don't matter, and more often than not they just get in the way.

Is it garage pop, or pop punk, or power pop, or garage punk? Post garage? Neo-punk?

Wait, what if they were signed to a major record label? It can't truly be indie-rock then. Hold it, that's a blues number... but it's being performed by a bunch of white British teens, so what is it now?

We all feel the need to codify and organize from time to time, but let's not forget to enjoy the music, okay?

'It's all Amurricana, by Gawd!'

For no particular reason that I can figure, this week's show turned out to be chock full of country twang, and nothing but.

Plenty of vintage stuff, mixed in with a bit of the more contemporary countrypolitan. I've heard Billy Kirchen call it 'Grange Rock'.

Honky-tonk howl, a trucker tune or two, a wee taste of bluegrass and rockabilly and western swing also along the trail.

And as always, of course: Any questions, comments about the music, howdies, whatever - - just click on that 'email me' link. Thanks, and I'm surely much obliged.
