Real People & Fictional Characters

Tonight, the Fuzz Factory has a new special feature, Real People & Fictional Characters. As the title says, the songs tonight are about or inspired by real people or fictional characters. Frequent listeners should expect that with a feature such as this, the spectrum of genres is a bit expanded beyond the usual big tent of hard rock/guitar rock. However, there is still plenty of melodic noise coming through during these three hours. Listen and make it your summer soundtrack.

Tune in tonight from 8-11 PM (EST) on SCAD-Atlanta Radio ( Don’t forget to download RadioFX. The BEST app for listening to internet radio shows like the Fuzz Factory.

6/14/17: Old School Psychedelic Rock


“You got that rainbow feel, but the rainbow has a beard.”

This week the Fuzz Factory was filled with the expansive and sometimes strangely experimental sounds of early psychedelic rock. I tried to touch on many variations of this new and emerging sound of the 60’s and early 70’s. I discovered some brand new songs in my research for this show and dropped them in the playlist. Mixed in with a few classics (like the one I quoted above) are some really rare tracks. Hope you enjoyed it if you were listening and if you didn’t, look closely at the playlist and discover some of these artist for yourself.

6/8/17: Three Hours Full Of Fuzz Rock


Summer break began this week around here at SCAD-Atlanta. That means the Fuzz Factory has resumed summer hours. That’s right, three hours, one extra hour of rock and roll. A good way to kick off summer is with a big dose of Fuzz Rock and that’s exactly what happened. Thursday night, I played three hours of songs filled with the thickest, fattest riffs and the spaciest grooves. Listeners of this show know what that’s all about.

Tune into the Fuzz Factory on SCAD-Atlanta Radio ( Thursday nights from 8-11 PM (EST). I’ll be back next week. I will be doing some traveling this summer, so I will not be in the radio studio every Thursday night. I’ll make sure to announce here when those days are.
