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 #Spotify Playlists?

Every week I put out a new curated playlist for your listening enjoyment (skip down to the next section and hit play if you want to skip the talking).

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 (most of the lists start with music from the 70's through today).

With all my playlists, you can "Just Hit Play" or jump down and click on the Band Names to get my version of Easter Eggs.

Last Thoughts

The winner of the poll for best 2016 was...I have no idea, nobody voted last week? 

Thanks to Kino Kimino, Xenia Rubinos, Summer Cannibals, Vomitface, and of course Kim Gordon for the likes and RT's for both of my playlists last week! Much appreciated!

Last week's regular playlist was called the "Holy Sin Cigar" #Spotify Playlist. and the special playlist was called "Women 2016 to the Front" and included only songs from women singers released in 2016.

Yes, I included L7 in anticipation of the new L7 documentary coming out soon.

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!
