Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I write about urban roots music, television, and occasionally politics. 

My motto is Explore, Enjoy, and Share new Music! Enjoy!

Pirate Transmission Playlists?

What is the best way that I can share my love of independent music with you?

The best solution that I could think of was to create #Spotify playlists (feel free to scroll down and click play and skip all of this bs).

My real passion is trying to share the music that has given me so much pleasure over my life. I try to include music from almost all genres and from all of the decades since I became passionate about music.

Last week's playlist was called "Nigerian Zoo Devil

I call my playlists "Pirate Transmissions" because the song "This is Radio Clash" by The Clash 

Anyway, just hit play or hit play and scroll down and click on the bolded band names for  more information about the music while you listen. If you like it, please share it!

Quick warning (because my goal is not to upset anyone or offend sensibilities), two of the artists below have chosen band names including profanity and if you look up the album cover for Unsane's Scattered, Smothered, and Covered it might be disturbing to you. 

The crazy names of the playlists were inspired by Captain Beefheart.
