The Fuzz Is Back

The Fuzz Factory returns this week with two hours of great rock & roll music. Plenty of new songs and great special feature. This week, it’s Queens Of The Stone Age and the Desert Sessions. As many of you probably know, the Desert Sessions has served as an open door studio group. Josh Homme has also used it as a place to collaborate with others and develop songs for other projects including his main gig Queens Of The Stone Age. Hour two will be dedicated to that other acts directly related to Queens Of The Stone Age.

Make sure you tune in, 8-10 PM (EST) on SCAD-Atlanta Radio (www.scadatlantaradio.org).

Here’s a sample of what you might hear…

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…

 

6/29/17: Real People & Fictional Characters

lee-majors-actor

Last week the Fuzz Factory had a new special feature, Real People & Fictional Characters. As the title says, the songs were 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 was still plenty of melodic noise coming through.

Here’s the playlist:

Kings & Queens

This week on the Fuzz Factory my feature will be Kings and Queens. There is a royal-like legacy of songs that have king or queen in the title. I’ll be diving head first into that territory Thursday night from 8-10 PM (EST) on SCAD-Atlanta Radio (www.scadatlantaradio.org).

ATTENTION LISTENERS: If you are having trouble streaming the show you may need to re-establish your connection to SCAD-Atlanta Radio.

Also, I recommend downloading the RadioFX app for listening to the stream through a mobile device. TuneIn is good, but I’ve been told RadioFX is better.

Join the Fuzz Factory, listen in and rock out.

Many Sides Of Love (Part 1)

funny-animal-love_3

Welcome to the Fuzz Factory, a supreme rock & roll parlor.

It’s that time of the year. You cannot turn on the radio without hearing an advertisement about Valentine’s Day. I am not making a judgement, just an observation. The importance of Valentine’s Day depends on a few factors and we all know what they are. This is my way to observe the tradition.

Well, in the spirit of the season, I have decided to visit one of the most authentic expressions of love, the song about love. The subject of love (in all its variations) is the most common one in rock & roll music. Every genre and almost every artist has approached the subject in their own way. Since I literally have thousands of songs to choose from, I decided to go with only songs that put love in the title. Tune in tonight for Part One of the Fuzz Factory Many Sides Of Love special feature.

The playlist will be even more diverse than a typical episode of the Fuzz Factory. The subject matter calls for it. There are many sides to love. This playlist covers a lot of territory in that regard. Expect a few surprises and a bit of genre hopping. Tune in tonight from 8-10 PM (EST) on SCAD-Atlanta Radio (www.scadatlantaradio.org).
