R/Z MIXTAPE - News Roasting

There is nothing more I love than news bloopers. Or, having the people who take themselves so seriously ridiculed at their own desk. That's just pure entertainment for me. This mixtape features, yes, the loud rock 'n' roll you adore...but it also features one of my favorite comedians ROASTING a news team. You'll also find an infamous Seattle anchor apologizing for saying "God damn" on air. And, of course, you'll get your fix of R/Z News updates from our very own Patty Patute. Artists to look out for: Doo Rag, The Mar-Keys, Tokyo Electron and Women in Prison.

R/Z MIXTAPE - Huffing Mono Trouble?

Everybody likes a mixtape, right? Remember when you'd put together the most romantic-yet-daring 80 minutes of music together for that special lady friend you were trying to win over? You'd package it up in a special cassette case, scribble out all the titles but not reveal who the artists were...ya know, an incentive for her to not judge the song before she's heard it? I do. But this isn't that shit. Not in the least bit. We start the Radio Zarape Mixtape Series off with a bit of nostalgia for those who chose keep things punky, grimy and weird during "that" era. You know, the era that makes Seattle natives roll their eyes? I digress. Here are three names you should familiarize yourself with. They all have extensive catalogs; all keep things relatively simple (you won't hear a cello through a wah-wah pedal under eleven tracks of 12-string guitars); and they all seem to still be doin' shit 20+ years later. This week's episode features Mono Men (Bellingham), Gas Huffer (Seattle) and Girl Trouble (Tacoma).

Sir Coyler's Sonic Garage - Episode 34

My apologies to The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, the five to seven Sonic Garage fans, and R/Z News Update followers. A month or so of procrastinating has finally made me realize that an hour of rad, typically "unheard of" music is a treat for your ears - but not if a host doesn't care to back-sell or talk about the music he just played...by himself. So, I think this gonna be ol' Sir Coyler's second-to last "Sonic Garage." I'd rather have a co-host and do funny, ridiculous things, and just occasionally play one of the bodacious songs frequently heard inside the Sonic Garage. More details to come. Have a wonderful work week!

Quiet Time with Quasimodo #26: New Music!

New music from Danger Mouse, Blitzen Trapper, The Kills, The One AM Radio, Yuck, and more! Everything in today's show was released in 2011.

For the uninitiated, Quiet Time is an eclectic chillout show full of laid-back tunes you won't hear on terrestrial radio, in the elevator, or down at the meth lab.

So tune in and chill out!

Hey, Keith is back after a long break. This episode was mostly recorded the night before Hurricane Irene hit NYC and CT, and then finished a week later after Keith's power was restored. What a sorry sonofabitch.
So there's some hurricane music, then a long set of incestuous musical family tree action that spans the globe from London to Jamaica to the Salton Sea. Then some other stuff that you will love. Guaranteed!

Quiet Time with Quasimodo #25: Strange Days in the Desert

What's the absolute best song ever written for getting high? See if you agree with Quasimodo's conclusion as he camps out in Joshua Tree National Park with a laptop, some mushrooms, and a self-described "urban shaman" named Eric.

Points of interest include music from Edward Sharpe, Thievery Corporation, and something new from Danger Mouse.

You're invited along for the trip, but just remember: BYOM.

Shall we call this the "bullsh*t blues?" Whaddya think? There's a niche for everyone: 3am, crankcase, ventilator, worried life, methamphetamine, Jackson-Kent, etc. Have you any idea what I am talking about!? Good! Listen:

Keith's Radio Show Episode 31
July 19, 2011 11:02 AM PDT

There's some really great stuff in here folks. It's better than you and your uneducated palette could even comprehend. Keith knows so much about music you weren't cool enough to find out about yourself. I, of course, already knew all of it.

Hello, welcome to Episode 32 of my Sonic Garage. Today's digs brings forth modern happiness. In fact, the quiz to this episode's contest challenges you to find the oldest song played. There's a handful of tunes from the 2000's, so you know it aint them, right? It couldn't be Primal Scream, Obits or Girl Trouble...could it?
