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…

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…

WOODY RADIO DJ MIKE SHOW #79, 10/29/2019

Well, another week, another varied show. This was our pre-Halloween show, so that means another track off The Taters now-legendary Halloween album, “Don’t Scream”. A couple of nights later, we played that entire album, cover to cover, while hanging out and passing out candy to trick-or-treaters. Such a cool record. But what other kinds of…

WOODY RADIO DJ MIKE SHOW #73, 9/10/2019

You know, I’ve been given three hours on Tuesday nights, in which to do whatever I please. Of course, that involves playing a whole lot of music. But I do tend to get motivated, aka, carried away. When planning for my shows, I usually hand select close to 80 songs. Trouble is, I’ve never gotten…

WOODY RADIO DJ MIKE SHOW #72, 9/3/2019

First show of September. That means fall, changing leaves, cooler temperatures, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and pumpkin spice everything. Right? Well, um, not so fast there. This is Sacramento, and we have a Reverse Groundhog Day thing going on. The groundhog saw his shadow, so we’ll be getting six more weeks of summer. Okay, that really isn’t…

WOODY RADIO DJ MIKE SHOW #71, 8/27/2019

I just had a weird, fun idea, but I should have started it about 71 episodes ago. It came to me because I took a look at this week’s playlist, and noticed that there were 56 tracks on this show, and that this happened to be episode #71 of my show. So here’s the thought–I…

WOODY RADIO DJ MIKE SHOW #65, 7/2/2019

Halfway through 2019. Yes, I realize that first sentence-like structure has no verb, no action word. But verb or no verb, the music we play on Woody Radio is chock full of action. This show was no exception. Although we didn’t explicitly bill it as such, I guess that it’s our Independence Day show, as…
