Goodreads is pretty neat…

August 18, 2009

I’ve been trying to read. I know, its a shocker. Usually when I read, I read juicy novels with complex stories, lots of drama, and of course SEX. I also like fantasy novels that take me into a world that could never “really” exist, but I like to believe that in some parallel universe might. You know, like there really is a Hogwarts that I could go to or send my kids to.

Now I’m trying to step away from my more imaginative book choices and pick some more music based educational books. I have two on my Goodreads “Music Book” shelf. I’ve included the link below:

So if anyone knows of a great tale about music please let me know, so I can add it to my list of things I should read. As you can see from the image above, my list is short. But first on it is the book “It came from Memphis” in honor of Jim Dickinson’s passing away 3 days ago. He played piano for the Stone’s “Wild Horses” (which Gram Parsons also recorded), was a record producer, and fronted the Memphis based band, Snake Eyes (among many other things).

There is no Radio Loveless this week on KRUI 89.7fm, however next week I’m back on Wednesday 8 till 10 pm. Listen in.

Well it is Radio Loveless…

May 2, 2009

This coming Wednesday my very special DJ-cohost for almost 2 to 3 years (so long I can’t remember) is joining me and we are *GASP* going to play our favorite albums/singles EVER! I’m nervous, I have to sit down and dig deep into my innermost feelings to do this. I anticipate this may be our greatest show ever.

Listen in this Wednesday 8pm till 10pm on KRUI 89.7fm, you can also listen on line here.

On a side note, Sonic Youth is releasing a new album and a free 128 kb stream on matador. It’s called the eternal.

It seems like I always find out about these things from these crazy kids, you should tune into them too.
