8/21/14: Another Cover Song Spectacular


It was time for a party. Yes, a music party, one with games. That’s right. I’m referring to latest installment of the Fuzz Factory Cover Song Spectacular! Last Thursday night I played three hours of great cover songs. You can’t go wrong.

PLEASE NOTE: There will be no Fuzz Factory this week (8/28). Unfortunately, personal business must take priority that evening. I’ll be back the following week (9/4) with one of the final three hour shows of the summer. Catch you on the flip side.

Cover Song Party, A Week Late

So last week I was stranded in Macon and had to cancel the big show at the last minute. This week, I am back. As you all know, I’m always willing to bring you this program, but this week I’m ready and able too. TONIGHT from 8-11 PM (EST) on SCAD-Atlanta Radio, there will be a costume party. That’s right, regular listeners know what I’m referring to. The costume party is, of course, the latest installment of the Fuzz Factory Cover Song Spectacular!

Tune into the Fuzz Factory TONIGHT and enjoy three hours of great cover songs. You can’t go wrong.

Stranded In Macon With The Fuzz Factory Blues

















As you know, the Fuzz Factory was cancelled at the last minute last week. I was traveling at about 70 MPH on I-16 when my alternator kicked the bucket. All the gauges died and the radio went on and off. It was like there was a ghost in the machine. I barely was able to get off the interstate and lost total power just as I made it to the bottom of the exit ramp. As you can see from the image above, I was stranded and ending up getting towed to car dealership service department. After waiting around until 3 PM the next day, I was finally able to get back on the road to Atlanta.

I was stranded in Macon with the Fuzz Factory blues.

Last week I was supposed to feature cover songs. Now it will be this week. Tune into SCAD-Atlanta Radio (www.scadatlantaradio.org) this Thursday from 8-11 PM (EST) for the latest Cover Song Spectacular! Get ready, it’s gonna be great.

8/7/14: Soundgarden & Nine Inch Nails










After a week hiatus I am back. Last week I was in the deep wooded mountains of northern Georgia. I was at an artist residency working on paintings and drawings. It was great, the Fuzz Factory was one of the only things I truly missed when gone.

This week the Fuzz Factory was influenced by real life events. I’ve waited in anticipation of the Soundgarden/Nine Inch Nails concert for about four months. Soundgarden is one of my favorite bands of all-time. The last time I saw them in concert was 16 years ago and it was great to see them again. Nine Inch Nails puts on an incredible visual experience. It was great to see them again as well. Therefore, the Compare/Contrast feature was Soundgarden and Nine Inch Nails.

Soundgarden & Nine Inch Nails = Big Concert.

The Fuzz Factory with Brett Callero = Big Rock Show. Here’s the playlist.

Big Rock Show Tonight, Big Concert Tomorrow

The Fuzz Factory with Brett Callero = Big Rock Show.

Soundgarden & Nine Inch Nails = Big Concert.

I’ve waited in anticipation of the Soundgarden/Nine Inch Nails concert for about four months. Soundgarden is one of my favorite bands of all-time. I last saw them in 1998 and it’ll be great to see them again. Nine Inch Nails put on one of the best concerts I’ve been to (saw them in 2000) and it’ll be great to see them again as well.

Therefore, tonight the Compare/Contrast feature will be Soundgarden and Nine Inch Nails. It’s almost concert time. Posted below are some of my favorite songs with videos by these two groups.

Tune into the Fuzz Factory with Brett Callero TONIGHT from 8-11 PM (EST) on SCAD-Atlanta Radio (www.scadatlantaradio.org).
