11/9/17: Social Distortion & Reverend Horton Heat


Last week on the Fuzz Factory I was inspired by my real life. Frequent listeners know that’s how it goes around here. My conversations during the week can lead to something here in the Fuzz Factory. That happened this week with my choice to compare/contrast Social Distortion and Reverend Horton Heat. Two very good bands that I’ve played but never featured on the show before. Both bands carry that great rockabilly punk vibe. On a side note, it’s not a coincidence that my choice was also inspired by a certain woman with many tattoos.

There’s no Fuzz Factory tonight or next Thursday, due to finals week and the Thanksgiving holiday. I’ll be back in December.

Here’s the playlist:

11/1/12: Occupy Fuzz Factory!


Last week was an important and opportune Fuzz Factory. Just in time for Election Day, I featured two hours of politically charged music and called it Occupy Fuzz Factory. An important topic like this takes a while to take shape. The playlist was constructed little by little for months in anticipation of this night. I even had a couple of friends helping with the playlist and assisting in the studio.It was a good night – touching on important political issues in songs from artists of all genres from folk to punk.

Those familiar with me know I can form and articulate strong opinions about the subjects I am interested in. I can easily be passionately outspoken about these things. Obviously, rock music is one of those subjects. Politics are another. Therefore this show was truly something I needed to get out of my system.

Keep listening – check out previous playlists – and yo – tell your friends. Listen early or listen late, but listen often.

I sure hope you all voted. Get out there and rock the vote! Here is the Occupy Fuzz Factory playlist!

8/18/11: Punk Rock

I’ll mix in the punk rock on the Fuzz Factory, but this week was another story. This week we got the punk out – with a show of 100% Punk Rock! A true lesson in punk rock history.  I brought in my friend Jeff to guest host. He has more punk rock music than anyone I know. Together we pulled out all the stops and brought a truckload of great punk songs from the past and the present. We also had a lot of listener requests, which was a lot of fun.

That’s all I’m gonna say because I gotta start typing, we played 66 songs in just over three hours!

Tune into the Fuzz Factory, every Thursday night from 8-10 (or 10:30, or 11:00) PM EST.
