Last Sunday, Twitter told me that #SundayMorning was trending, and I immediately thought of the outstanding song of (almost) the same name by Margo Guryan. It got me thinking: what would my perfect Sunday Morning playlist sound like? Paint a picture: Hanging out on the couch with my big fat white cat Thunderclese and my… Continue reading A Perfect Sunday Morning Playlist: 10 Songs to Start Your Day
Yep, I’m getting married in a few days, so I figured it was time to put together a love-themed radio show. I tried to keep it centered around positive love songs, but with indie music, but a few oddities slipped in. In true form, I also made it my latest vinyl-only night.
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
November 18 was the second vinyl only show, featuring an array of tunes from the likes of Sambassadeur, The Mary Onettes, Holiday Shores, Devon Williams, Le Jonathan Reilly, Christmas Island and many more. Included within were several from Sweden’s Labrador Records thanks to a recent package from the label, and I also played several tracks… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: November 18, 2012
Brett and I met up a little before 9:30pm at KSVR, spent a few minutes catching up, then organized the selection of records we would play that night. It was a first for me — having a co-host — and it turned out to be a blast. Friday nights from 10pm to midnight can be… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: November 2, 2012
This show ended up being a bit of a favorites show; we began with a few favorite tracks from the past few years by bands hailing from Sweden including Acid House Kings and their track “Do What You Wanna Do” (which remains one of my all-time favorites). And we continued with several favorites from 2012… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: September 21, 2012
Visiting the parents is often a stressful time. Despite their incessantly busy schedules, they have actually learned to relax in retirement despite their hectic lifestyle. I visited them two weekends ago now. Hence the absence of an August 17 radio show recap; there was none. Instead, I participated in my brother’s wedding.
I’m in a reflective mood. Thinking back on my youth, there’s so much that, at the time, I wished I could do. Looking at my life now, I think I’m right where I want to be in terms of who I am and what I am doing with my life.
OK, this is exciting news. After the reissue of another favorite artist a few years back (Carissa’s Wierd), whose catalog was long out of print, another favorite gets reissue treatment: Acid House Kings.
It is happening again. After two dormant weeks of doing virtually nothing (OK, very little is more like it), evenings this week were spent spinning vinyl by The Smiths and painting Andi’s sewing room in preparation for putting in the bamboo flooring this weekend.
