Woody Radio DJ Mike Show #91, 2/4/2020: Top 40 songs of 2019

On this Woody Radio exclusive show, I reveal my Top 40 songs of 2019. This happened a few days after my annual Twirlie Awards show over on Twirl Radio. We started the show with Juliana Hatfield’s first ever solo release. Not that she put it out in 2019–far from it, it came out back in…

Not too long ago, I needed to fill up my car, so I stopped and got some expensive California gas. You know the kind–where you’re watching the numbers spin on the gas pump, and the price numbers spin about three times as fast as the gallon numbers. It’s kind of dizzying. With a few minutes…

“So what happened this week?”, you might be asking yourself. Well, Super Tuesday happened. No, no, nothing to do with elections. Besides, that only comes once every four years, and who wants to wait that long? Here on Woody Radio, Super Tuesday happens each week, coincidentally, on Tuesdays. It’s the day where we have three…

Holy cow! I just came to the realization that we are now in the third(!) decade of the 21st Century! How in the world did that come to be? Seems like just yesterday, we were worried about civilization as we know it, crashing down because our computers couldn’t handle the year 2000, lovingly referred to…

This week is the first week of 2020 where I’m back in my usual Tuesday night time slot. This comes on the heels of a couple of weeks of Saturday morning shows, over the holidays. So everything’s back to normal, right? Um, well, define “normal”. Any set of music that transitions from Fishbone to Mimi…

WOODY RADIO DJ MIKE SHOW #86, 1/4/2020

2020! Here we go! New year, new decade. So everything new, right? Not so fast there. The very first song I played on this first show of the 2020s: a 40 year old track from Van Halen. A tender love ballad called “Everybody Wants Some”! Ok, it was wrong back in 1980, and it’s just…

Artist of the year! Karen Basset

2019 was a tough year all around. A couple of years ago, we lamented the loss of a lot of musicians and celebrities we loved. In 2019, it got personal. It seems like everyone we know dealt with the loss of someone close to them. However, the tough persist. Woody Radio is a tough band…

Gidget’s Top Song of 2019

There isn’t much intro this song needs. It’s just a full fucking circle of shit all rolled into one. When I started with Woody I played a band called Mindless Self Indulgence. Then The Secret Weapon turned me onto Morningwood and Chantal Claret. Chantel being married to Jimmy Urine or MSI and the lead singer…
