play list for the five & dime show aired 24-may-2012 wmse

sorry for the delay in posting this……..things have been a bit hectic as of late……but in a very good way, mind you.    news to follow.    one thing i am excited to tell you about is a recent show that i have booked here in milwaukee.    scheduled in the the seemingly distant future, but it will sneak up on you, so mark your calendars now, is the following:


saturday, july 21st, 2012 at the sugar maple…….chris forsyth, mind over mirrors & black eagle child.


this weeks show opened with a piece from each of these artists, and they will be featured from here on out on the five & dime show while i am at the helm.   would love to see milwaukee really come out in droves for this one.      chris is coming all the way from brooklyn for this one, and will be on the heels of a newly released cd/lp on northern spy records called ‘kenzo deluxe’.   i played a track off of it to open the show……i think it’s one of his strongest releases thus far, haven’t really been able to stop listening to it since he sent me an advance copy.


anyway, like i’ve already said, sure hope to see many of you there……would be nice to show some support for this type of music so that i & others can continue to book shows of this caliber.

play list for five & dime show aired 29-march-2012 wmse

this show was a lot of fun to make.    i hope it was fun to listen to.     if you missed it, i would urge you to check it out, especially if you are like me & love the song ‘brazil’.    today’s installment of the five & dime was themed affair, i called it ‘every other brazil’.   which is to say that every other song i played was a version of the ary barroso song ‘brazil’…..and the other tracks were either from brazilian artists, or brazilian in nature.    it’s been a long time favorite of mine……probably goes back to when i first started buying records at the tender age of 15…….not sure what it is about the song, but something about it really grabs me.    it’s frantic pace i’m sure has something to do with it…..this song really swings when placed in able hands.     the terry gilliam movie i’m sure helped my obsession along as well……i really enjoy that movie.



anyway, based solely on the amount of phone calls i got during this show was live leads me to believe that people really enjoyed it, and for that i’m glad.    i was afraid that people may find it difficult to keep hearing ‘the same song’ over & over again…….and i suppose, if that happened, no one was so upset by it that they called me up to yell at me (or question me)…..they probably just turned it off.   to those who were compelled to leave….i’m sorry.    i’ll return to ‘normal’ programming in two weeks……whatever the hell that is for the five & dime show.

playlist for five & dime show aired 5-january-2012 wmse

let me first start by saying this……..I AM GOING TO OWN 2012!    ok, so i know that’s a bold statement (and a bit of a cliche around this time of year), but this year will be mine.   i’ve spent a lot of the last year or so running in place, but i swear this year i am going to GET SHIT DONE.     keep your eyes & ears open.



hope your new year’s evening was half as fun as mine, had a small group of close friends over & had a grand time…….PARTY TAPE!    the latter hours are still a bit hazy…..but i was up until 5am, so i wouldn’t expect anything less.   spent the next day in bed & watching movies…..and i think the day after that doing the same.    perfect way to bring in this year in particular, it’s going to be super busy & super exciting.
