    New Release Spotlight - Foo Fighters - "Waiting On A War" - Episode 45

    New Release Spotlight - Foo Fighters - "Waiting On A War" - Episode 45

    Feels like we waiting years for this one to drop, but it's finally here and personally I think it was well worth the wait. Dave and company heavily paying tribute to 70s AOR bands throughout this album. After what I thought was a bit of a slump last decade, it didn't take me long to instantly find my appreciation for all the songs on Medicine at Midnight, especially the song I'm highlighting on this episode, 'Waiting On A War'.

    New Release Spotlight - Weezer - "Here Comes the Rain" - Episode 44

    Weezer dropped their latest this past week, Ok Human, and it's a drastic departure from previous albums. Full of classical instruments and arrangements. It's practically a rock symphony. I share a couple thoughts on this new record and spin my favorite tune from this brand new release, "Here Comes the Rain".

    "Weird" Al Yankovic" - "This Is Not My Beautiful Stapler" - Episode 43

    "Weird" Al Yankovic" - "This Is Not My Beautiful Stapler" - Episode 43

    Honoring one of the biggest snubs from the Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame. The one and only "Weird" Al Yankovic. And I'm not doing it alone this week as my favorite co-host Chloe, joins me for this really fun episode. This is a special and nostalgic episode for me because "Weird" Al was the first concert my parents took me to when I was growing up. I've been a dedicated and loyal fan for over 35 years and his genius as crafting parodies and song-style parodies are unparalleled by anyone. Because I don't play singles on this show I concentrate on some deep cuts from Al, and particularly his original compositions that I think are some of his forgotten classics that I hope you love as much as I do.

    XTC - “Life’s Like A Jig-Saw” - Episode 42

    XTC - “Life’s Like A Jig-Saw” - Episode 42

    A year ago I will admit that I only owned one XTC compilation CD. I didn't know what I was missing. For this weeks show dived deep into the classic period ('78-'82) of XTC, and came out the other end absolutely mesmerized by their music. The talent this band had was off the charts and it's a shame they never reached the success in the states they deserved. This episode features mostly deep cuts, but I do throw in some of their bigger songs that charted in the UK since they never made an impact in the US.

    RIP Sylvain Sylvain - Episode 41

    RIP Sylvain Sylvain - Episode 41

    We lost the great Sylvain Sylvain this week and I'm heartbroken. At the same time I am thankful that I did have an opportunity to see Sylvain 10 years ago during the New York Dolls reunion tour and it was an incredible show. I know this mini-episode can't possibly fully honor his entire career, but it wasn't that long ago I did an entire episode dedicated to the New York Dolls and much of that show I talk about how amazing he is as a musician. So after this head on over to episode #16 - The New York Dolls - "Long After a Masquerade". RIP Sylvain.

Stellar podcast

Love this podcast. Nathan focuses on music from the bands I love, but doesn't play the tired hits you only hear on the radio. Plus he offers a cool perspective on the music, with some great facts and trivia. Solid well produced show!
