For what expresses love as keenly as a voice backed by strings??! 12 February 2011

Free download/ streaming audio for the Valentine Strings Special radio show I did for KXLU.

Listen here

Three hours of songs devoted to love in all its myriad, multi-faceted forms…

Songs of adoration, songs of yearning, songs of heartbreak, from the past 100 years, many of them obscure, overlooked, delicious and probably new to your ears.

Brand new unreleased songs, 60′s and 70′s tracks, and super vintage recordings from way back when records were hi-tech, and tape machines were positively sci-fi.

Tender, cruel, sophisticated, funny, romantic, heart-wrenching, erotic, despairing, passionate, vicious, mellow, cool, dark… and downright cheeky!

Peter Ludwig interviewed me, and as well as spinning records I sang and played a new song live in the studio, and also played violin for my friend Eric Lindley.

The show was on Sunday February 13th from 11 p.m. until 2 a.m. PST.
For UK listeners, it was on Monday 14th February from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Christmas radio show 8 January 2011

Alien Air is one of the pillars of KXLU, a show on air since 1986 with a playlist as wide as its years are long. It was a pleasure to be the guest for their Christmas Show. I got to play tracks from my back catalog over the past 20 years, as well as discussing music projects past, music, and future (including my new record).

All tracks include my strings, except the Smashing Pumpkins track Astral Planes which was played kinda by mistake (we were shooting for Stitch in Time, a Smashing Pumpkins song with my strings, but the CD player skipped, and we totally rolled with it) Also White Angel is a track that I composed for a film soundtrack, but it’s performed by an opera singer, so no strings there.
