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 Transmissions

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 "Voodoo Kiss Blues" #Spotify Playlist.

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

Some Final Thoughts

The winner of the poll for best song on last week's playlist was "Suck My Kiss" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers (over 100 votes) and the playlist won best #OPS music post of the week.

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.
