2/20/14: Break Up Song Special Feature (Part 1)

anti_valentines_day1

So here we are. After another Atlanta snow out, I was finally back in the SCAD-Atlanta Radio studio last Thursday. The special feature was Part 1 of the long-awaited, highly anticipated Anti-Valentine’s Day Break Up Song Special Feature. Part 2 is this coming Thursday (2/27) from 8-11 PM (EST).

Unfortunately, there were major problems with the audio stream that tonight. many of you listeners couldn’t stay with the show and I guess I don’t blame you. I’m not sure what caused the problem. Perhaps it was all the pain, suffering and heartbreak I was sending out through the intertubes. Regardless, it was screwed up, JUST like a break up. So there you go. After all, it cannot be denied – there’s been so much great music made about this subject. I have hundreds of songs in my music collection to choose from.

Check out the Fuzz Factory Break Up Song Special Feature playlist. It will forget to call you back. Ignore you. Then get offended by everything you say.

Let The Black Angels Take You Away

Tomorrow night is the Black Angels concert. I am superpsyched because they are easily one of my favorite bands over the last five years. All four of the CDs and extra EPs are highly recommended rock & roll. As the listeners around these parts know – the Black Angels sound great on the Fuzz Factory too.

I still love looking forward to a great concert. I keeps me young.

Here are a some videos. Let the Black Angels take you away.

Fuzz Factory Break Up Song Special, 2/20/14 @ 8-11 PM (EST)

Last week, the snow once again put a stop to the Fuzz Factory. This was heartbreaking because I was all prepared to drop Part 1 of the Break Up Show. Maybe the last minute cancellation is appropriate, considering the theme.

It’s still Anti-Valentine’s Month as far as I am concerned. Make sure to tune into the Fuzz Factory this Thursday for Part 1 of the Break Up Show. So much great music has been made about the different emotions relation to this subject.  That’s why it’s a two week special feature. Three hours each week! it’s going to be great. Make sure to tune in. 8-11 PM (EST), this Thursday (2/20) and next (2/27).

Here’s a few alternative rock break up classics to listen to in the meantime.

Snowed Out (Again)!

The Fuzz Factory is snowed out again! What can I say? This winter sucks for seemingly everyone. It’s been a long, cold, messed up winter for all. My life is all over the place already so more cancellations and postponements are starting to become too normal. Tonight was supposed to be Part 1 of the Break Up Show. Break ups are never pretty, maybe this was supposed to happen?

So what can I do? Post more break up music for your Anti-Valentine’s Week/Month/Year/Life. The celebration continues with a bunch of versions of an all-time classic break up song. Train In Vain, originally recorded by the Clash.

Make sure to tune into SCAD-Atlanta Radio NEXT Thursday for Part 1 of the Fuzz Factory Break Up Show. 8 PM (EST).

In the meantime. Enjoy the songs on this post and the others coming in the next few days.

 

You’re No Good

More break up music for Anti-Valentine’s Week.

The celebration continues with a few versions of You’re No Good, an all-time classic.

Make sure to tune into the Fuzz Factory this Thursday for Part 1 of the Break Up Show. So much great music has been made about the different emotions relation to this subject.  That’s why it’s a two week special feature. It’s going to be great. Make sure to tune in. 8 PM (EST), this Thursday.
