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!

#OPS Transmission #Spotify Playlists

Every week I put out a new curated playlist for your listening enjoyment.

The goal of each playlist is to present a coherent handshake between alternative music artists and genres from the 1950's through today and to inspire people to explore, enjoy, and share new music.

You can "Just Hit Play" or jump down and click on the Band Names to get my version of Easter Eggs.

Last week's playlist was called the "Soldier Girl Driving" #Spotify Playlist.

I also did a Flaming Lips Tribute playlist called the "I Remember A Broken Radio" #Spotify Playlist

Final Thoughts

The winner of the poll for best 2016 song on last week's playlist was "Destroy the Evidence" by Australia's Clowns (cool surprise win) and the winner of the poll for best old school song on the playlist was "Sick Boys" by Social Distortion. 

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

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

My blog motto is Explore, Enjoy, and Share New Music!

It took me 53 playlists, but I finally repeated a song (do you know which song it was?).

What was your favorite 2016 song on the playlist?

What was your favorite old school on the playlist?

What is your favorite band on the playlist?

Let me know what you think, leave a comment!
