12/7/17: The Roar Of Women


This Fuzz Factory was long overdue. I have not had a show that featured female vocalists in a long time. Narrowing the playlist down to two hours proved to be the most difficult part of putting this all together. I will definitely revisit this topic again in 2018.

Featuring Polly Jean Harvey

Welcome to the Fuzz Factory. Last week I only played rock & roll songs with women on lead vocals. This week, I’m featuring one of the greatest rock & roll women of all time, the one and only Polly Jean Harvey, better known to us as PJ Harvey.

PJ Harvey has been making great music since the early 90’s. She has released eleven full length albums of her own and also has collaborated with many other artist. I’ll play a set of her music at the end of the show. The difficult part will be choosing which few songs to play because she has such a rich and extensive catalog.

Make sure to check out the Fuzz Factory. Tune in Thursday nights from 8-10 PM (EST) on SCAD-Atlanta Radio (www.scadatlantaradio.org).

in the meantime, here are a bunch of great PJ Harvey videos, check them out as well.

9/8/11: Rock & Roll Women

School has started – meaning that I am a busy guy.  Therefore I am running behind on my posts. Here is the playlist from a show earlier this month.

Girls rock. Yes, they do. This Fuzz Factory was totally dedicated to the women of rock & roll. Much of the music on this subject was provided by my partner in crime, Catherine. She joined me again this week and brought the goods. We have a great special feature tonight, Rock & Roll Women, with tons of great rock and roll sung by and/or played by women.

Girls ROCK! It was a fantastic three hour show, so we played a lot of songs. If you like what you heard, go buy it! Support rock & roll!
