New Topic
Goto Page: 1 2 3 Next

Dropping tomorrow (6/1) is the premiere of "Bad News," my new monthly podcast devoted to surf, hot-rod, garage, rock instrumentals, and anything else I can find in my record library. "Bad News" is all about old records from the 50s and 60s that relate in some way to the general category of surf music or just cool teenagers rocking out with guitars and saxophones. You're going to hear many non-comped records along the way, too.

Listen in tomorrow (and every week) at 1pm, Thursday @ 5pm, or this coming Sunday @ 11am, all PDT, hosted by GTF Instrumental. Podcasts will also be posted to SoundCloud.

You can get the boy out of the Keynes era, but you can’t get the Keynes era out of the boy.

What an excellent show.

Thanks everyone. I appreciate all the nice comments. Here are a few of the records played on this 1st "Bad News" podcast. Back to Mono!!!!


Pile on... very much enjoyed the maiden voyage, John!

I am really pleased with how great the old vinyl sounds. Can you share a little bit about your setup - how you're getting these from 45's to broadcast with such great quality? Thanks!
