Radio Free California Episode 2416, radio station notes, cheap shots and more!

 


Quite the list of new music this week, including English Teacher, Avi Kaplan, Bridget Kearney, Mark Knopfler, Airbag, Sikane, Nia ARchive, Metz, Bad Bad Hats, Orville Peck with Willie Nelson and much more. Enjoy!

ROTATING OUT: SONGS LEAVING RADIO FREE CALIFORNIA

This means the music that is aging out is from Radio Free California Episode 2316. This includes music from what was then the new album from Metallica, along with The Linda Lindas, Temples, Magaziine, Geoff Castellucci, GoGo Penguin, The Tallest Man on Earth, Fruit Bats and much more.

We celebrate these songs with a new show that will play on Saturdays at 11am and again at 5pm PST. We will say goodbye to the songs that are now a year on the playlist with one last broadcast, which will be repeated a couple of times during the day.

You can of course still listen to this music - my playlists are still on spotify and you can find them here. They're all searchable as well.

ALBUM SHOW NOTES

I have known for weeks now that English Teacher finally released their new album that I'd feature it, but they have some real competition this week, including Morgan Harper-Jones' new album "Up to the Glass", Maggie Rogers' "Don't Forget Me", Sikane's "We Belong" and damn it there's a new album from Mark Knopfler too!.  But English Teacher's album "This Could Be Texas" (thier first full-length album after a ton of singles and a couple of EPs) is a near masterpiece and you should hear it from start to finish. This is one of England's most exciting new bands in a long long time and they cover topics that only the young, brave, and unfairly stereotyped could do.

The Album Show will run this Thursday April 18th at 9am and 9pm Pacific Standard Time.

RFC 2416

For those of you who stay away from Spotify this playlist will be played this Wednesday April 17th at 2am, 6am, 10am, 2pm and 6pm PST. All of the songs I feature on Radio Free California are played as part of the regular rotation. .If you want to hear the songs we've added to the station this week you can use the Spotify playlist above or you can listen to this show.

However! This week we are adding an extra song that is not available on Spotify or practically anywhere else for that matter. It's a live recording of Joni Mitchell performing "I'm Still Standing", originally released by Elton John and co-written by Bernie Taupin. LIke last week's Jacob Collier addition, the performance is so good that I have to add it to the rotation. I seriously doubt it will be released as a single and she changed up the song considerably, turning into a slow-burn jazz number. It was part of the Gerishwin Honors and is a one off, although you can find bootleg performances on YouTube. I took the best one of those I could find and remastered it for you, my listeners at Radio Free California.

10 at 10

One last programming note: Every Sunday at 10am and again at 10pm we will feature our show "10 at 10", where we play 10 (and sometimes 11 or even 12!) songs from a year we pick at random. Again, all times are PST. Last week we featured a selection of songs from 1982 and for next Sunday's show we're going to feature a small selection of songs from.. well you'll have to tune in to find out! We also run the show at a "secret" time on Saturdays.

As always, you can go to https://global.citrus3.com:2020/public/radiofreecalifornia to listen to the station, and there is an imbed below. And did you know the station is available as an app? It's only for Google Play (sorry iphone users - Apples terms and conditions were too restrictive for me) but you can listen on your phone at your convenience too.


Cheap Shots:

No, the Arizona Ruling on abortion did not reset the age of consent to 10 years of age. However, back in the territory days that really was the age of consent. The man who came up with all this was a Pedophile.

I have to wonder, did the brokest millionaire in New York (or Florida) want revenge for Maggie shooting Mr. Burns?

Russia should really zip its pants back up.

Quite frankly I haven't paid any attention to anything done by The New York Times this century.

That little boy in the CD art (remember when we bought stuff and it came with art?) steps into his father's shoes.

No Mr. "Noun-vewrb-nine-eleven", he would have sold them more weapons. The receipts.

I hate to break it to you everyone but Bibi has a very poor record of just "Taking the Win."

I wasn't watching so I missed this: “It was a beautiful song but it ran too long; If you're gonna have a hit you gotta make it fit, so we cut it down to 3:05”

Yeah, I know I know, I'm one of the people who foisted Court TV on the world, but I really don't need this.

The Good Liars are very good at this.

Funny how he keeps committing Election Interference while complaining about others doing it.

Dude, your legacy is that Dewar's Ice Cream sells sandwiches now. If they still do - I haven't been there in 40 years.

You say Deminsion, I say Dementia.... Let's put your ass in jail. (If you've now got a song stuck in your hear you're a true friend).

How the day went, in case you were interested. Apparently I'm not the only one who thought it was a snooze-fest.


Inching just a little bit closer.

Does he even know that Baron is a high school Senior? As I've demonstrated before, he is what we used to refer to as a lyin' motherfuckin' cocksuckin' son of a bitch. (I betcha Melania had to remind him).

A whole different type of tampering.

And because I love you, have a live performance of Cory Wong with Alexander 23:

ALBUM SHOW NOTES

The Sixsters is a Ukrainian rock band established in 2018 by Kateryna Kuziakina in a small town near Kyiv, Ukraine. Over a period of four years, the band participated in the Ukrainian rock scene. The band's name, The Sixsters, is a testament to the close bond shared among the five members. In 2022, the Russian invasion of Ukraine significantly impacted the band members' lives. Some members left the country early on, while others sought refuge in bomb shelters amidst the conflict. The band members found themselves dispersed across different countries. Now the members of The Sixsters managed to reunite in Essen, Germany, and have a new album out called "To Be Continued..." and we will play the entire album start to finish on this week's Album Show.

The Album Show will run this Thursday Aptil 11th at 9am and 9pm Pacific Standard Time.

Was there any conquering involved? (too soon?)

This dude is as Christian as the leader of Hamas.

Here's the general consensus about impeaching over a policy dispute.



One gets the impression that this pastor was never spared the rod.


I think his position is "I'll say whatever to get elected."


Looks like someone wants to break the seventh seal.

Ryan, the secret is alcohol. Lots and lots of alcohol.

Did no one ask The Indigo Girls?

Tacozilla? Tacozilla?

And it bears repeating: A vote for RFK Jr. is a vote to end Democracy as we know it.

I honestly don't understand why he keeps going to court. He always loses.

And because I love you, here is Jacob Collier performing that extra track I've added to the station:

ALBUM SHOW NOTES

Emily Wolfe is a singer/songwriter/guitarist from Austin TX who has just put out her third album, "The Blowback". She might jsut be poised for a big breakthrough, having opened for a number of the greats of classic rock over the past few years, from The Pretenders to Heart to The Strutts to Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. To me she sounds like one hit single away from entering the lext level in this business, and I think that single is on this album - but I don't know which song so I'm going to play the full album for you. "The Blowback" is out this week at all the usual places and will be the featured release on this week's Album Show.

The Album Show will run this Thursday Aptil 4th at 9am and 9pm Pacific Standard Time.

As if all of this wasn't awful enough already.

Seems to me that everyone can bitch about their job if they want.


Is Lee Greenwood as much a shit musician as he is a shit Bible Salesman? I dislike Country as a general rule so I have no real idea what qualified as "good" country vs. "bad" country. To my hears, it's all bad.

She was a better singer in the days when she was with Dr. Teeth.


Seems to me that a guy who has a Master's Degree, even from an "Evangelical Christian University", should know what a metaphor actually is, and how to use it.

I did the math, and that $6 Billion that DJT earned on it's first day is now worth $2.6 Billion and cratering fast.

Racist fucks say what? 

Somebody needs to lay down the law.

Jesus dude, I haven't stepped into a church voluntarily in 4 decades and even I know this one.

אתה מגויס

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say... probably not.

And because I love you, here's a live-in-studio performance that people my age will find quite nostalgic.

ALBUM SHOW NOTES

Mourn is a band from Spain that began as a collaboration between guitarists/vocalists Jazz Rodríguez Bueno and Carla Pérez Vas, a pair of teenage friends from El Maresme, Catalonia. When they met at school, their shared fondness for '90s indie rock led them to make music together. The pair uploaded videos of their bracing acoustic songs online. They recruited drummer Antonio Postius and bassist Leia Rodríguez (who was just 15 when she joined) and started recording albums. Their 5th, "The Avoider", is out this week and will be the featured release on this week's Album Show.

The Album Show will run this Thursday March 28th at 9am and 9pm Pacific Standard Time.

Believe it or not Senator, I think you'd be welcome on our side of the isle. But given the state you represent, going Indie is probably for the best.

So suddenly he's less liable for all his criming? Appeal this horseshit ruling.

Disecting the "what if".

We didn't veto peace? What is the world coming to?


Assigning blame, and noting a difference between NBC and MSNBC

The Crown can't catch a break, can they?

To be honest, I had never heard of the Social Media site "Elk" before today.

Fuck yes I'm better off now than I was 4 years ago.

A new reason that April 15th this year will be more interesting than usual.

While the idea of a summit is a big fucking deal, what I glean from this article is that the next leader of North Korea might be a woman.

He gets a stay of execution and then promptly lies about it. The appelate court should revoke the stay.

Well that was... something.

This was 3 times funnier yesterday.

Yeah, like anyone under the age of 15 doesn't know what a VPN is

He's unlikely to win, but the story is fascinating just the same.

You think you've ever had remodelling and/or building delays? Try this for size.

Oh please. This video was shot in 4 minutes on an iphone.

ALBUM SHOW NOTES

Royel Otis is a properly snarky band. Their Spotify bio reads, "In the lyrical justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: The Royel, who investigate rhyme, and Otis, who prosecutes the offenders. These are their stories.". They have a new album called Pratts & Pain and it's a solid effort, but I discovered them thanks to their new single "Murder on the Dancefloor", which IS NOT ON THE ALBUM. So I've decided to have a little fun with it. We're going to play the new album, PLUS the single on this week's show.

Apparently we have Schrodenger's Constitution now.

Someone make certain Steve Kornacki is all lubed up. Or Caffeene, or whatever.

What a schmuck and schmendrick this guy turned out to be.

No, not him, the other one.

How about instead of "too old for office" how about "too far along with Alzheimer's"?


Has there ever been a case when a White guy compares someone to Martin Luther King Jr. that wasn't cringeworthy?

I wonder if "I lost on purpose!" is going to ber how he explains all of these lawsuits/court cases he keeps losing.

I know it's petty, and I own up to it, but since when is this woman a blond?

That’s a Republican idea of a win-win: taking credit for something while doing nothing.

Yeah, because fucking Texas has shown such great respect for Federal Law and SCOTUS.

ALBUM SHOW NOTES

This week on The Album Show was again a no-brainer for me. As I started working through Pouty's first full-length album called "Forgot about me". Forgot About Me is Rachel Gagliardi’s (from the punk band "Slutever") full-length debut under the name Pouty. The album was written and recorded throughout 2022 in Los Angeles and Philadelphia with The Superweak's Evan Bernard and Chris Baglivo. Forgot About Me’s nine tracks speak to a series of realizations about desire, self-sabotage, denial, acceptance, and aging, all set atop fuzzy power pop.

The Album Show will run this Thursday February 29that 9am and 9pm Pacific Standard Time.

This is, by every definition possible, all fucked up.

I kinda doubt that Leonard Cohen would write a song about this.


Why do they still say "Koch Brothers" when one of them died several years ago?

My Governor has always been ballsy.


I don't think he realizes just how big a mistake this would be. SOTU is in the Constitution, dumbass.

Watch that person's debt accumulate in real time. As I type this it's at $1.33 per second.

Oh, and did you know that he made his ligal filings for appeals without bond? That means the interest continues to accumulate.

Radio Free California Episode 2308, radio station notes for the week and the Wheelers.

 


New music this week from J. Robbins, who dropped the best album so far this year, The Warning, Big Big Train, Grandaddy, Sean Ono Lennon, English Teacher, The Dandy Warhols (with Slash), lovelytheband, some older dudes from Seattle and much more. Enjoy!

Let's see if I can get through this week without getting a ban for language, shall we?

ROTATING OUT: SONGS LEAVING RADIO FREE CALIFORNIA

This means the music that is aging out is from Radio Free California Episode 2308. This includes music from Screaming Females, PONY, Nickel Creek, P!nk, AJ & Aly, Shounen Knife, @, Joe Louis Walker, and so much more, plus even I show up.

We celebrate these songs with a new show that will play on Saturdays at 11am and again at 5pm PST. We will say goodbye to the songs that are now a year on the playlist with one last broadcast, which will be repeated a couple of times during the day.

You can of course still listen to this music - my playlists are still on spotify and you can find them here. They're all searchable as well.

ALBUM SHOW NOTES

This week on The Album Ahow was a no brainer for me. I have been a fan of J. Robbins going all the way back to when he was the lead guitarist for Jawbox, which is shockingly now 30 years ago. He has a new album out called "Basilisk" and to my mind it's the best album out so far this year. I added 5 tracks from it to the radio station rotation, and feel that everyone should give the album a listen. So we will feature the entire 11 song album this week on the Album Show.

The Album Show will run this Thursday February 22nd at 9am and 9pm Pacific Standard Time.

RFC 2407

For those of you who stay away from Spotify this playlist will be played this Wednesday February 21st at 2am, 6am, 10am, 2pm and 6pm PST. All of the songs I feature on Radio Free California are played as part of the regular rotation. .If you want to hear the songs we've added to the station this week you can use the Spotify playlist above or you can listen to this show.

10 at 10

One last programming note: Every Sunday at 10am and again at 10pm we will feature our show "10 at 10", where we play 10 (and sometimes 11 or even 12!) songs from a year we pick at random. Again, all times are PST. Last week we featured a selection of songs from 1996 and for next Sunday's show we're going to feature a small selection of songs from.. well you'll have to tune in to find out!

As always, you can go to https://global.citrus3.com:2020/public/radiofreecalifornia to listen to the station, and there is an imbed below. And did you know the station is available as an app? It's only for Google Play (sorry iphone users - Apples terms and conditions were too restrictive for me) but you can listen on your phone at your convenience too.


And because I love you, these two are coming back to the rebooted "Night Court"

ROTATING OUT: SONGS LEAVING RADIO FREE CALIFORNIA

This means the music that is aging out is from Radio Free California Episode 2306. This includes tracks from Peter Gabriel, The Winery Dogs, Kat Robichaud, Koshi Inaba, Theo Katzman, a great remake from Powerwolf, and a monster prog rock song from Canada's Crown Lands, and more.

We celebrate these songs with a new show that will play on Saturdays at 11am and again at 5pm PST. We will say goodbye to the songs that are now a year on the playlist with one last broadcast, which will be repeated a couple of times during the day.

You can of course still listen to this music - my playlists are still on spotify and you can find them here. They're all searchable as well.

ALBUM SHOW NOTES

This week on The Album Ahow we will feature the new album from veteran Britpop band Shed Seven and their new album "A Matter of Time". It's a solid album and frankly among the best work they've done in their 30 year career. From their Spotify page: "this album flies out of the traps - perhaps reflecting its origins during lockdown - and ends in autumnal, reflective mood. Along the way, guests including the Libertines’ Peter Doherty, Rowetta from Happy Mondays and Reverend and the Makers’ Laura McClure have joined in to produce in another set of epic Shed Seven anthems. The album’s power and maturity reflects the decades-long friendship between singer Witter, guitarist Paul Banks, and bassist Tom Gladwin. A Matter Of Time demonstrates that the band are at the very top of their game and the journey is far from nearing its end."

The Album Show will run this Thursday February 8th at 9am and 9pm Pacific Standard Time.
