10/12/17: Iggy Pop & the Stooges

Screen Shot 2017-10-17 at 1.33.20 AM

As I mentioned earlier, I recently saw Iggy Pop in concert. He’s 70 years old now and still kicked ass real good. Great concert. Therefore, as you might expect, the Fuzz Factory special feature was Iggy Pop and his former band the Stooges. They were punk rock before there was such a thing.

Listen to the Fuzz Factory on SCAD-Atlanta Radio (www.scadatlantaradio.org), Thursdays from 8-10 PM EST. Saving rock & roll radio, one week at a time. Be there!

8/24/17 Fuzz Factory Eclipse Mix


As I posted about last week, I’m putting my Fuzz Factory spin on this whole eclipse mix soundtrack music thing. So I did. Playing three hours of great rock and roll featuring songs with sun, moon or eclipse in the title, as simple as that.

Also, there may or may not be a Fuzz Factory the next two weeks and three of the next four weeks. I will be conducting research and development at rock & roll concerts. I may have episodes ready, we may’ve reruns and there may be  no shows at all. Sorry, I cannot give a definitive answer. Regardless, I’ll be back in the studio on 9/14 with plenty of brand new music to play.

Here’s the Eclipse Mix playlist. Rock and roll, let’s go!

8/17/17: Awareness and Escapism


As I mentioned in my previous post, I couldn’t decide which direction to go. Should I go serious and play protest music and music addressing the issues of the day? Should I go light and play music that’s an escape from the issues? I decided to go in both directions. Frequent listeners know this is a big tent rock & roll show. Lots of room in here for both ends of the spectrum. This show was all about awareness AND escapism.

8/10/17: Return From The Road


My summer tour has concluded. Over the last 4 weeks I’ve visited the following cities: Kansas City, St. Louis, Chicago, Cincinnati, Louisville, Washington D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia. It was three different trip taken almost back to back to back. I did lots of urban exploration and even pasted up some of my street art in Kansas City and Louisville.

There was not much time to prepare for the Fuzz Factory this week. Needless to say, I whipped up a batch of good stuff to play for my dedicated rock & roll listeners. There was a loose theme happening too, about the road. You’ll see that mixed into the playlist.

7/27/17: Late Night Sounds


This was a new theme, Late Night Sounds. Even though it’s quite subjective, I know it’s one that I’ll revisit many times, because it creates such a great playlist. These are songs that sound best after 1:00 AM. The time of day when the anything and everything is possible. Passion, destruction, reckless despair, excessive behavior, triumphant victory and bitter defeat are all infused into the songs played here.

This show was the second pre-recorded Fuzz Factory. I recorded it a few days before heading out of town. I tuned in from Washington D.C. and listened to myself on the radio.
