Songs To Learn And Sing! Show tracks for Sat. Nov.21/15

Audience participation time! I leave this in your capable hands listeners. I am wondering how to feature the Festive 50 this year? Would you like to see The Festive 50 return to a more historical 2 week production or follow last year's experiment of a 1 week show. The one week show last year did not feature all 50 artists being played due to time constraints. It actually featured around 40. The two week version obviously allows time for all 50 to be played during a two show run. So which do you prefer?

Join Our Club! Show tracks for Sat. Aug. 29/15

25 years in the bag and not without surprises. Just a minute from starting the show and the power in the building goes out. For over 20 minutes. I'm serious, you can't make this shit up! So I almost took the hint and postponed the show, I mean why make the big guy even angrier! lol
So the show was a little shorter in length and about 5 tracks I wanted to play didn't get played. But we start the next 25 years next Saturday night! I'll probably save those missed 5 tracks for a Mixtape Memories segment.
Hope you enjoyed the show. I want to thank Scott for being my partner in crime and starting the show 25 years ago. Probably wouldn't have done it by myself. I want to thank all the listeners who came along on some musical trips with us over the years. It if it wasn't for you, the show wouldn't have lasted a year. Thanks everyone! Family, friends, bands, labels and of course the listeners!

Absence Makes Ther Heart Grow Fonder!

Had I not been going to The Church wsg The Psychedelic Furs and had it not been CJAM's special tribute to punk rock Radio Brain Drain week, these are some of the tracks that would have been featured. With next week being the 25th Anniversary show these tracks wouldn't get any attention on the show for 2 more weeks. So let's collect them here and have a listen like you would on the radio.

That's just some of the singles. Now throw in a handful of albums that crossed the desk as well. Some of them long awaited debuts and album of the year contenders.
