Fun show! Matt Keating (songwriter from NYC) was my co-host, and brought alot of great and interesting songs to the mix.

He also brought his guitar in and played the following songs live during the course of the show:

"Jacksonville" -- can be found on the album Tilt-A-Whirl

"Louisiana" -- can be found on last year's album Quixotic

"Daddy's On The Roof" -- off this year's Between Customers

"Amplifier" -- cover of a dB's song

"Better Than That" -- off the new album etween Customers.

In between we featured some musical tributes to some artists that have passed away recently: Duane Jarvis (guitarist from here in Portland), Les Paul (no introduction needed), and producer wunderkind Jim Dickinson.

Thanks very much to Matt Keating for coming down, co-hosting, and making it an enjoyable show!

I had a dream a few nights ago that I was walking around a non-descript large city, and stopped to look at a store window where there was a news broadcast playing on a TV (I think this is actually out of a scene in the movie "Splash" or maybe "Being There").

On the screen flashed a picture of Exene Cervenka (singer for the band X) and the newscaster said that she had died earlier that day. I just stood there, flabbergasted. As it was sinking in, a woman came and stood beside me. I don't remember if she said her name or not, but I knew that this was Exene's sister. I talked to her for awhile, can't remember specifically what was said though. And then woke up.

So I played X's "Riding With Mary" on my show this morning. This is one of a handful of songs on the album "Under The Big Black Sun" that was written about Exene's sister Mireille who died in a car accident in 1980.

Looking at today's playlist, you might notice a theme.

The new PDX Pop Now compilation was released this week, and it seemed like a good opportunity to do a local music only show. If you're not familiar, PDX Pop Now began in 2004, it is a non-profit organization that produces this amazing festival each summer. All local music, free to the public (all ages). Each year they also release a two-disc compilation of local music.

If you weren't up at 3am to hear the selections I played, have no fear -- these comps are some of the most affordable 2-disc sets that I've seen. And most of them are still in print, available at your local record store (yes, they still exist -- support them!)




Johnny Indovina from Human Drama's new disc

I am hoping you'll add a track from the new disc by Johnny Indovina & Sound of the Blue Heart; I think it's a good fit for the show (I'm here in Portland).

Should I send you the cd?

Here's the links to sample some of the tracks:

Hope to hear from you soon,
