Let's Do The Time Warp Again...

Titling my blog with a Meatloaf/Rocky Horror Picture Show song might be an odd reference, but trust me I've got a reason or two. First, to set the record straight (musical pun) it has been a long time since I've posted anything to the blog, but do to all my massive listening to a great online radio station called WOXY it's been difficult to focus on much else. This leads to my second point and reasoning for my time warp reference I mentioned above. WOXY SIMPLY ROCKS. As a former terrestrial station that ended up closing its doors in January 2004. They found another life as a strictly online station and have been a model for others across the nation.

With only a handful of disc jockeys and a desire to turn our eardrums inside out they have received rave reviews from such entities as Q Magazine, Wall Street Journal, and Penthouse. As for you non beleivers just give them a listen or test drive one of the many vintage stations. It's a musical meltdown and an opportunity to revisit some gems of yester year.
Musically, it's been an odd month for me and for the notable numbers I'm going to have to go with a mix of art rock and hip hop. Enjoy and if you get a chance give them a whirl.

Notable Numbers Currently in Play:
  1. Artist: Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth member), Album: Trees Outside the Academy
  2. Artist: Bedouin Soundclash (punkish/rocksteady), Album: Street Gospel
  3. Artist: Kero One (San Fran Hip/Hop Man), Album: Easy Believers
