On Air at KSVR: March 22, 2013 Playlist

It seemed wrong to do anything outside a tribute to the late Jason Molina. Since learning of his passing the other weekend, Songs: Ohia and Magnolia Electric Co. have been dominating my playlists; in particular the former. Given this fact, I focused on the sub-genres Molina often found himself in – folk, folk-rock, and alt-country.… Continue reading On Air at KSVR: March 22, 2013 Playlist

On Air at KSVR: March 8, 2013 Playlist

I received a message from Stuarto requesting I cover his show in the late afternoon hours of Friday, March 8. After a minute or two to think about it, I agreed. In all the times I’ve covered for his show over the past year and a half, I have never done a show that gives… Continue reading On Air at KSVR: March 8, 2013 Playlist

On Air at KSVR: February 22, 2013

I spent quite a bit of time during my February 22 show chatting with Ozarks’ Robbie Augspurger about various items, from music publicity to awesome cars from the 70s and 80s. Turns out he’s quite the photographer as well. Beyond that, not much to say about this playlist. Another eclectic mix of tunes for a… Continue reading On Air at KSVR: February 22, 2013

On Air at KSVR: February 15, 2013 Playlist

I broke the rules this week on my very unoriginally titled radio show on KSVR Mount Vernon. The Indie Music Show featured a few tracks that are, quite distinctly, not even close to being indie. And one of them kicked off the show. It’s the new track by David Bowie called “Where Are We Now?”… Continue reading On Air at KSVR: February 15, 2013 Playlist

On Air at KSVR Mount Vernon: February 8, 2013

Before I took over, per the norm, host Chef Stuarto brought me on air to discuss the coming show. He asked if there was a highlight track I wanted to talk about. The discussion centered around the first track I would play that evening – Jacco Gardner’s “The Ballad of Little Jane”, which I likened… Continue reading On Air at KSVR Mount Vernon: February 8, 2013

On Air at KSVR Mount Vernon: February 1, 2013 Playlist

I’ve been in a weird place musically of late. I’m a bit scattered, all over the map. My affinity for light, soft and playful folk has returned, but I’m also crushing on slacker pop and dream pop at the moment. Pretty hard, thank to bands like Darlings and Indians. I shouldn’t be surprised at this… Continue reading On Air at KSVR Mount Vernon: February 1, 2013 Playlist

Fense’s Radio Show: It’s An Indie Christmas

Each year I shun Christmas music like it’s the plague. It begins too early, is far too repetitive, and, quite frankly, is a bit boring. That is, until this year. It began with “The Week Between”, a new track off One Christmas at a Time, an LP that finds Jonathan Coulton and John Roderick (The… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: It’s An Indie Christmas

Fense’s Radio Show: December 7, 2012

A long night, but no matter. I learned long ago that spending a bit extra time doing something you love… well, it’s a good thing! Stuarto sent along a text asking if I could pick up his 8pm show and I obliged. Being a mere few hours from show time, I just threw together an… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: December 7, 2012

Fense’s Radio Show: November 30, 2012

For my first show back from vacation, I decided to lay off the vinyl. After all, I received a few packages of records in the mail and that means another vinyl-only show should be coming up in the near future. The November 30 playlist includes new tracks by The Ocean Floor, Nicholas Jaar / Theatre… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: November 30, 2012

Fense’s Radio Show: November 23, 2012

Alright, so I have a treat for you. Being that I spent Thanksgiving week on vacation in Vancouver, WA with my parents — yes, a full week — I was out of town for my normal Friday show. Rather than having Stuarto cover for me, as holidays aren’t the best for extra shifts at the… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: November 23, 2012
