Going Both Directions

I couldn’t decide what to play tonight. Definitely a tougher time than usual. I was split in many directions. Should I go serious and play protest music and music addressing the issues of the day? Should I go light and play music that is 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. We’ll definitely have that tonight.

Tune in tonight from 8-11 PM (EST) on SCAD-Atlanta Radio (www.scadatlantaradio.org). Here’s a taste of each of those directions.

No Fuzz Tonight

Yep, there’s no Fuzz Factory tonight. Sorry about that I wanted to have a prerecorded show prepared for you tonight. Unfortunately, that did not happen. There will be a show next week and the one after even though I will be traveling. I am visiting five cities over the next four weeks. Kansas City, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Washington DC and finally back home in Chicago.

Make sure to tune into the Fuzz Factory 7/20 and 7/27 for three hours of prerecorded Fuzz Factory. I’ll be listening, it’ll be weird and awesome.

Since there is no Fuzz Factory tonight, I added a link to a classic, check it out…

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.
