The legendary Bill Lloyd, backed by the Lannie Flowers Band, a few days prior at Woodland, CA’s Blue Note Brewing Co.
It took a few days, but I finally got you the audio from this week’s Woody Radio, Tuesday Night DJ Mike Extravaganza Show With No Name! And it’s a good one. For starters, I sound reasonably coherent, which is kind of nice, since I do this show late at night, when most normal people would be thinking about going to sleep. Not me–I’m thinking about segues between disparate-sounding tracks, and how to best surprise you with whatever’s next.

So we did a fairly diverse show. Krista D sent me a great new track earlier in the day, just in time to get it on the show! I played tracks by the artists who played the well-received Spyderpop Showcast in Woodland, CA (near Sacramento) just a few days ago. It was my complete honor to have emceed that show. I hadn’t played Rick Hromadka’s “Taxman”-type song, Ruby Free’s “Owe To The Man”, in quite a while–so it was good to hear it. This just so happened to be my Song of the Year, the year it came out. How about Bart Mendoza & True Stories covering a 1986 Elvis Costello song, but in the style of what Elvis sounded like in 1979–a brilliant take indeed. And–have you ever wondered what my favorite songs are by Wire Train, The Orange Peels, Material Issue, R.E.M., and John Wesley Harding? This should should answer those burning questions for you.

I hope you can listen to at least some of this show, and get the same excitement of music discovery that I do. Which new songs excite you? Which ones give you new hope for today’s music? Enjoy, and let me know what you think.
