It's been a very cold February and the first few days of March. We've had record rains, it's been snowing at lower altitudes than it has in decades and even the Hollywood sign had snow on it. There's snow on the hill overlooking Burbank and snow in the La Crescenta Valley on the other side of the San Fernando Valley, at 1400 feet. Right now it is cold and windy, lows in the 40's and highs in the 50's. I'm eagerly awaiting for it all to pass and to enjoy warm Spring weather so I can ride my new bike and get some much-needed exercise.
I've got some shows coming up with Airiel and Deserta, The Church and Letting Up Despite Great Faults with Draag as well as the Cruel World Festival in May. I also got to enjoy the Ride/Charlatans show at the Wiltern and caught up with friends including Charles Motorbike, Keith, Tony and Daanon.
I'll get to meet Tina and The Hams and Factory guitarist Damian Frood, coming from Australia this April, which will be a treat.
The station has been down for the better part of a day and I hope to see it back up tomorrow. Something to do with too many similar genre tags. I can't get into the library or load songs. But the folks in Greece, where Radiojar is located are working on it and I'm confident they'll fix things before our weekend shows begin airing.
Brandon Dudley has a new show called Souvlaki Bass Station and for two hours on the first Sunday of the month at 1pm and 9pm PT your ears will be graced with songs focusing on the bottom end, the bassists that keep the songs moving and laying down the melodies for the singers and guitarists to follow. If you don't know Brandon, he is the bassist for the band Echodrone, a band I love, full of talented musicians and with a large enough and far-ranging catalogue that fans of many styles and genres should find something to enjoy. They also know their way around a cover or two. Echodrone has done a show where each member played and introduced songs and Brandon has also done two anniversary shows for Eardrum Buzz Radio. I've seen the playlist for his first Souvlaki Bass Station show and it is amazing. You can find the shows on Podbean the rest of the month.
Keeley Moss' show Keeley's Blissed-Out Bangers has also been on weekly for five weeks now and each show is just so much fun! Be sure to listen Sundays at 12pm & 8pm PT for a fun hour of classics and recent releases. Keeley's enthusiasm is infectious!

I've added merchandise for the Absolute Legend tier that includes a sticker, mugs, prints and totes, each with a different design. For $20 a month you can receive all of those items as well as exclusive mixes and you get to hear our twice-monthly Vapour Trail Live a week before the rest of the world, if you missed it on the 2nd and 4th Fridays at 6pm-9pm PT. You can also become a Patron for as little as $5 a month and get the mixes and advances of Vapour Trail Live. If you give $10 a month you'll get a mug with one of our many logos designed by Tony Bennet. All tiers get a discount on the Bonfire merch too, including Mindy Scurto's Evolve design.
