YouTube Channel

I finally got around to creating a YouTube channel for some of the video that was recorded of artists performing on the show.  I will start recording more video as I have finally got some equipment together to do this on a weekly basis.  So if you have ever wondered what the inside of the KCMJ studio looked like or wanted to see the artist performing their songs, this will be your chance.

Currently there are only five videos, but the channel will grow with each passing show that I have a guest in studio.

You can go to the YouTube channel here

A break

Sometimes I need a break, especially with all of the hatred and negative this week.

Thankfully there are many wonderful places in town that I can head to.  This is why I love Colorado!

Ships Have Sailed

The LA based duo of Will Carpenter (guitar and vocals) and Dan Hange (bass) make up the group Ships Have Sailed.  The alternative pop-rock group debuted their first EP Someday in 2014.  After touring the East Coast they began piecing together their first full-length album Moodswings which was released this year.

The group had a track called “Midnight” included in the film BRAND: A Second Coming, a film that follows comedian/author Russell Brand.  The group also performed at this past SXSW in Austin TX.

The 11 track album Moodswings is an excellent album, one that I listened to several times already today. My favorite song off the album is “You Should Know” although “Drive” is a close second.

You can hear a track from the album this Sunday on Front Range Radio. The show airs at 9pm ET on KCMJ.org

South Mountain Pt 2

Today was my final day in Phoenix this week so this morning I got up early to visit South Mountain again.  It was a chilly but clear morning to catch the sun rise. The desert has its own kind of beauty.

Radio wisdom

The office I’m at this week had a classic rock station on today. I have heard these songs many times over the years, but for some reason the lyrics had me thinking today. So thanks to the many classic rock artists for the wisdom they shared.  

My dreams aren’t as empty as my conscience seems to be

If I claim to be a wise man it means I surely don’t know

Though my eyes could see, I still was a blind man, though my mind could think I still was a mad man 

Hold on loosely, if you cling to tight you will lose control

Life goes on long after the thrill of livin is gone

Hold on to sixteen as long as you can, changes come around real soon make us women and men

And I couldn’t believe it, I just had to find out for myself.  There’s some things in this world you just can’t explain. 

All we do crumbles to the ground though we refuse to see

It’s a hard life to live but it gives back what you give

Ain’t  it funny how the night moves when you just don’t seem to have as much to lose 

Great lyrics by some wonderful artists.

May the Great Pumpkin be kind to you, and be very afraid  of things that go bump in the night.
