Woody Radio DJ Mike Show #88, 1/14/2020

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…

Woody Radio DJ Mike Show #87, 1/7/2020

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…

WOODY RADIO DJ MIKE SHOW #85, 12/28/2019

We are right in the middle of that holiday sweet spot–the week between Christmas and New Year’s. One of my favorite times of year. Things are a little slower, less traffic and congestion out there, people are out of the office, spending time with family, and the food treats are in abundance. Basically, things are…

WOODY RADIO DJ MIKE SHOW #84, 12/17/2019

We’re getting even closer to the holidays. One week out from Christmas, and two weeks out from New Year’s. And these musicians, man, they’re not even slowing down. Still MORE new music coming in this week, so I’m getting it out to you. Anton Barbeau’s next album is called Kenny Vs. Thrust. It’s called that,…

WOODY RADIO DJ MIKE SHOW #83, 12/10/2019

As we approach the end of 2019, you’d think that all the new music for the year had already come in, and that we’re done for the year. But alas, you’d be surprised. Even at this late date–December–still MORE new music keeps rolling in the door. So on this week’s show, you’ll hear The Amplifier…

WOODY RADIO DJ MIKE SHOW #82, 12/3/2019

Sorry I’m a bit short on time this week. It’s the end of the year and decade, and I’ve only got like two weeks left before I start my annual Christmas Eve holiday shopping. Plenty of time, right? Well, maybe not. Maybe I’d better start now, and you should too. If I can make a…

WOODY RADIO DJ MIKE SHOW #81, 11/19/2019

I’m sitting here, writing this while ensconsed in the Thanksgiving holiday bubble–that spot where it’s warm inside the house, with family and food around. Football games play at low volume on TV, always in the background. And when you step outside, it’s cold and sunny. Okay, California cold–but still, that annual chill in the air…
