6/5/14: Summer = Girls

The soundtrack of life continues. Last week I started my summer break boogie with a special feature, Songs About Girls. In rock & roll vernacular, summer = girls. It was just what was needed to move on into what I hope is a very productive summer of transition.

My friend 40 Watt Gigolo (http://www.40wattgigolo.com/) was in the studio with me once again. Always an excellent audio contributor, 40 Watt Gigolo did not speak a word, preferring to take in the sounds and smells of summer (AKA girls).

Speaking of a productive summer, here’s a quick announcement before the Songs About Girls playlist. This Thursday (6/12) the special feature will be Days & Times. Tune in from 8-11 PM (EST). The title should tell you all you need to know. Also, FYI – next Thursday (6/18) there will be no Fuzz Factory. On the road again.

Summer = Songs About Girls

Tune in to the Fuzz Factory TONIGHT, from 8-11 PM (EST) for the Summertime Songs About Girls Special Feature. Three hours of great rock & roll – all named for women of inspiration. I can’t think of a better way to kick off the summer.

Tune in TONIGHT on SCAD-Atlanta Radio, http://www.scadatlantaradio.org.

2/21/13: Songs About Girls

Hello everyone – it was good to be back in the Fuzz Factory after a two week hiatus. Unfortunately, my commitments as a professor here at SCAD-Atlanta created a conflict with this show. It’s good to be back.

This week I was back full force with a new feature – Songs About Girls! Rock & roll music has historically been filled with great songs about girls. I felt it was time to dedicate an entire show to that legacy. Songs About Girls – definitely a feature I will revisit again. Tune in next week for Songs About Guys, and the following week for the latest Cover Song Spectacular.

OK – here is the Songs About Girls playlist. Keep on listening to the Fuzz Factory! Saving rock & roll radio, one week at a time.
