Mon, 04/30/2012

We loved them so much when they perfomed for us last Febuary,<http://kboo.fm/node/34030>, that we had to have them come back. In fact we were flooded with calls from listeners, last Monday, wondering when they would come on. I did have another band ready to perform, but the gals brought me an order of french fries, so we moved them right into the studio!

Cuddle Magic were touring the country this spring, having also played in Denver and Seattle before coming to the Sidedoor last night in SE Portland. While they were in the studio, they mentioned that part of them are from Brooklyn, but the other members are from Philidelphia. When they said they met in college, I had to test them with a musical joke that only actual music students laugh at. A wonderful band, with electronic keyboards, trumpet and a bass clarinet among others instruments.

Mon, 03/19/2012

One of Portland's favorite street bands, All the Apparatus, came down to the studio the Friday before the show to record a few songs for us. They are all upstanding young people, with actual jobs, and they all couldn't come down to the show in the middle of a Monday afternoon!  So, Captain Jon recorded them last week, and we replayed it for this show with three of the band members, Al, Mallory and Gena joining us in the air room. We also talked by phone to Sabrina, who's travels have brought her to Austin, Texas. Where she reports on the South by Southwest Music Festival. And she has adopted a young fox as a pet!(pictured below)
