Looking back at the year so far, I could talk politics, celebrities, TV and movies. But it always comes down to the music for me. It almost always fits, I pick and choose who to support by purchasing the songs on Bandcamp or from the band or label's websites, whether in digital, CD or vinyl form, always asking myself "Does this speak to me?" or "Would my listeners like this song/artist?". My choices of sounds have broadened and softened over the two and a half years since starting Eardrum Buzz Radio and I'm consistently finding new and interesting artists to play, to listen to on my own time and making sure my own ears can handle the sounds. Having tinnitus as well as knowing what I like are factors even more so as I grow and evolve.


You can hear the latest songs added to Eardrum Buzz Radio on The Current Buzz block weekdays from 3pm-6pm PST.


John Wellby and Lesa Hannah had their first show on Eardrum Buzz Radio this last month, trading vocal duties between songs. Their one hour show is Fuzz Delay Reverb and you can hear it now on Sundays at 11am and 7pm PST with replays the following weeks. Visit them at: facebook.com/fuzzdelay


I've also begun two merch stores!


Now you can buy shirts, pullovers and hoodies at eardrumbuzz.net/store! Mindy Scurto of MK Studio has designed our first shirt design I call "Evolve". Please support the station by purchasing a shirt and telling people about the store. Become a Patron and get a 10% discount. Go to patreon.com/eardrumbuzzradio and find out more. We also have shirts, mugs, totes and hats.

You can reach Mindy Scurto to design something for you at: facebook.com/MKStudiosgraphicdesign

Speaking of Patreon, you can also support the station for as little as $5 a month. I know you spend more than that for a cup or two of coffee so please consider sending a few dollars our way to help cover the costs of running an online station. You'll get a code for discounts on Bonfire merch as well as hear live shows first and exclusive mixes. I'll also record Shout Outs with your name that play throughout the day at Eardrum Buzz Radio.

Other ways to support Eardrum Buzz Radio are via Paypal: paypal.me/eardrumbuzzradio. Every little bit helps and goes towards bills, saving for new gear and purchasing more music for your enjoyment. You can also retweet our autoposts from twitter @eardrum_buzz and on Instagram @eardrumbuzzradio and repost and share our events on Facebook, post about your new music and releases at facebook.com/groups/eardrumbuzzradio and join us there to chat during our shows.

Greg Peters recently had a particularly large following on his Vapour Trail show with listeners from Nashville representing the band 9-Volt Velvet and from Australia from the band Hey Calamity and other musicians who are fans. I've been noticing for a while now that musicians are some of the biggest music fans and are happy to support us DJ's and interact with other listeners and musicians while our shows are on. They don't hate their job, it's not like a musician doesn't want anything to do with music or talking shop. But more often than not musicians aren't full or even part-time musicians. They are creating art to fulfill what making money doesn't necessarily do for them.


So I have to keep reminding myself to focus on the positive and what I can control in my life and that is my patience with those that don't meet my minimum expectations at work, personalities or temperaments that clash and find a way to smile and be kind. I will think about the music that is coming from others out there, who pour their souls and efforts into creating art that inspires me to keep at it and wake up the next morning with an interest in seeing where life takes me.

What do you do to make your life worth living? Hopefully, it's listening to music that moves you or making music that feeds your soul.


Lots of great music is added to Eardrum Buzz Radio every week and you can hear new releases weekdays from 3pm-6pm on The Current Buzz.

Dead Can Dance canceled their 2023 tour due to health reasons. I do hope they get better and are able to tour but somehow I'll make it if I never get to see them.

And I won't go into the fiasco that is the ticket situation with Ticketmaster and Live Nation but to say I won't be seeing any event held at a place like the Forum until they do something about their ticket pricing. If you tried to get tickets to one of the 11 dates in the States to see Depeche Mode or see the reunited Blink 182 tour you know what I'm talking about.

On the upside, the Unity Tour with Pet Shop Boys and New Order at the Hollywood Bowl was amazing and I got to see my old friend Dave Kelly and his wife Jane for the first time in many years. We caught up and they got to see their first concert in decades. The bands put on excellent sets with plenty of lights, lasers and video footage behind them. And they both sounded great.


We and I mean other, talented people are working on art to put on shirts and hats and mugs and hoodies for the Eardrum Buzz Radio store. Tony Burnett has some awesome logos and Mindy Scurto is working on a design that I hope will get you all to want to help support the station and that you'll wear proudly!


If you'd like to help support Eardrum Buzz Radio may I direct you to our Patreon page? I've been posting mixes from Madame Maledicta with a deadly electronic mix featuring lots of Skinny Puppy along with some mixes of acts I love. You'll also get discounts on merch when we're ready. www.patreon.com/eardrumbuzzradio


John Wellby will begin airing his show Fuzz Delay Reverb on Eardrum Buzz Radio starting November 6th. He'll have a new one-hour show on the first and third Sundays at 11am and 8pm Pacific time. Check your time zone converters to make sure you don't miss out!

Danny Gellis is back with Serious Spinach on Fridays at 10am! Truth be told, I didn't think he was going to return but in his usual way, just contacted me the other day and said he had a show. So enjoy his two hour show of craziness and eclectic selections and be brought back to the days of Wolfman Jack, Doctor Demento and Jed the Fish and enjoy some real radio!

The ultra-talented and busy Rosie Varela is stepping down from her Be Here Now Show to focus on her own music and other duties. Her shows were so good and I can only hope she does another show down the line. In the meantime, pick up her album What Remains by The Rosie Varela Project on Bandcamp! https://thervp.bandcamp.com/album/what-remains

Heather Macias is taking her Echoes In A Shallow Bay to Mixcloud until she can get a set schedule. You can hear her and her husband Mario as Winter of Our Faith. They just released a single with the wonderful art of Vinca Renner too! http://winterofourfaith.bandcamp.com

Back to responding to emails and listening to some wonderful music.


Thanks for joining me on my journey to find peace and happiness if only in a 3 minute song.




And a huge thank you to all the bands, labels and publicists for sending submissions to the station! Your music is placed in the library, sent out to our DJ's and is played for a few weeks on weekdays from 11am-2pm Pacific time on the Current Buzz block.

Eardrum Buzz Radio is two years young this past July and we're still getting our legs under us and learning to walk. DJ's have come and gone, some taking a hiatus while moving or enjoying their summer and new hosts are arriving this August. Madame Maledicta just wrapped up here month-long exploration of the music of Kate Bush, prizes were sent out for the second anniversary weekend and new music is added almost daily to the library.


I've started a Patreon page to help gather funds to keep the station afloat and to afford me more of my own income to put towards necessities. I've researched other server options like Radio.com which offers more space but at higher prices while also providing many more ways to track listeners. So I created a Patreon page to offer you the chance to have your name mentioned on the station throughout the day to let everyone know you support independent endeavors like Eardrum Buzz Radio, a station that plays music you won't hear on Spotify or terrestrial radio or even satellite stations. We have many DJ's who carefully curate their shows and show their love for creativity in the form of music. For continued support we offer a coffee mug with our EDBZ logo which you can use for holding flowers, guitar picks or to drink your favorite beverage. I'm working on finding other things that will add value to your subscriptions and to show my thanks for supporting the station.

After our four day long Second Anniversary Weekend I sent out prizes to some of our lucky listeners.


Fernando Altonaga received four albums from Hogar Records, including two albums from EEP and Ross Ingram's solo album.

Kelvyn Williams got CD's from EEP, Ross Ingram and The Rosie Varela Project.

John Emslie and Heather Macias got digital albums from Echodrone's discography

C. Reyes and D. Katz got vinyl from Somewherecold Records

Barry Snaith, Rigoberto De La Mora, Kris Gardner and Sarah Mills received downloads for Blind by Sun Shines Cold

Kate Sims, Toni Brooks, Christie Hassler, Josiah Lambert and Lindy Jones got downloads for Alone by Sun Shines Cold

Gave Sun Shines Cold “Blind” download codes to Barry Snaith, Heather Macias, Rigoberto de la Mora, Kris Garner, and Sarah Mills

Sierra Peralta, John Emslie and Rob Barnes all got downloads from Minaxi


Several more listeners got downloads from the likes of Shore Dive Records, Minaxi, Sect Appeal Records, Echodrone and Sun Shines Cold.


On the anniversary weekend we had guest shows from Heather and Mario Macias of Winter Of Our Faith, Jim Biggs of Black Nite Crash, Ronny and Goran of Damokles et al, Brandon Dudley of Echodrone and Jason Lamoreaux of the Corrupting Sea and head of Somewherecold Records. Meagan Masingill did two live shows and DJ Wednesday went live during her Saturday time slots. Nico put together an excellent Shore Dive Records overview for his Beatastic Transmissions and John Trainer of Tombstones In Their Eyes did a special live show on Friday night. Rosie Varela of EEP and The Rosie Varela Project debuted her first episode of Be Here Now, an hour of guided meditation and music.


Over the four day weekend anniversary we had 329 unique IP's with 452 total listening hours along with all the other ways people tuned in via smart TV's, gaming consoles, listening in their cars, at work and through directories and streaming sites. That's a whole heck of a lot of ears tuned in to Eardrum Buzz Radio all over the world!

Elizabeth Klisiewicz and The Kitchen Sink has moved on to greener pastures and you can still hear her shows on Mixcloud. Kelvyn Williams and Head Trip will end on July 31st so he can focus on work and his family and his own music projects. Both Elizabeth and Kelvyn have incredible music tastes and passion for music and they'll both be missed on the station.

Four new shows will begin on Eardrum Buzz Radio in the forms of The Jazz Scene with Charles Maxey; Be Here Now with Rosie Varela; Your First Listen with Kris Gardner and Echoes In A Shallow Bay with Heather Macias. You may recognize the names as you already follow their bands or shows. Charles Maxey aka Charles Motorbike hosts The Charles Motorbike Show and now has The Jazz Scene playing jazzy music on Sundays at 11pm. Be Here Now is hosted by Rosie Varela of EEP and The Rosie Varela Project and is a monthly hour of meditation and music designed to calm and soothe and fill your soul and can be heard on the first Mondays at 8pm. Your First Listen is a weekly show hosted by Kris Gardner full of the newest releases and will be aired on Mondays at 6pm. Echoes in A Shallow Bay is a monthly two hour show hosted by Heather Macias of Winter Of Our Faith and is a deep dive into all the music she's loved throughout the years and the latest releases. All times Pacific time.


And a huge thank you to all the bands, labels and publicists for sending submissions to the station! Your music is placed in the library, sent out to our DJ's and is played for a few weeks on weekdays from 11am-2pm Pacific time on the Current Buzz block.
