Today I’m looking back 20 years and counting down my top 20 albums of 2003. In this first part, I’ll be looking at 20 down to 11. As we reach the 20th anniversary of the albums released in 2003, it’s hard not to look back on this particular year as a crucial moment in indie rock history. For me, cemented in my Junior and Senior year of college, I dove deeper into my obsession with music and expanded my horizons even deeper into indie rock.Read More »The Top 20 Albums Turning 20 in 2023 | Part 1

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 Friday night.Read More »On Air at KSVR: February 22, 2013
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.

Damien Jurado may be a big fan of Christmas, but there’s one thing he hasn’t done since he began his solo songwriting career in the mid 1990s: write and record an original Christmas song.

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.
