Tune into Little Radio today from 2-4 pm (PST) for the “When You Awake Show.” I’ll be returning to my roots and focusing on some of the classic country artists that I love so dearly. Look out for songs by George Jones, Roger Miller, Buck Owens, Lefty Frizzell, Loretta Lynn and more.  I’ll also be doing a preview of artists that will be playing at this year’s Pickathon Festival in Portland, Oregon on July 31- August 2nd, which we are currently giving away tickets to.

Tune into Little Radio today from 2-4 pm (PST) for the “When You Awake Show.” I’m going to start things off with a cover of the Beatles “Don’t Let Me Down” by Dillard and Clark (that’s Gene Clark of the Byrds and Doug Dillard of the Dillards) and then play some good ol’ tunes by The Band, Jesse Winchester, Michael Nesmith and more. The second half of the show will feature new bands that I’m currently digging as well a sneak preview of new tracks from upcoming records by The Duke and The King (Simon Felice of the Felice Brothers new project), The Avett Brothers, The Cave Singers, AA Bondy and more.

Tune into Little Radio today from 2-4 pm (PST) for the ‘When You Awake Radio Show’. We are once again pleased to announce a special in-studio guest DJ, Mark Starr. It is very rare that I go to an event and hear a DJ spin music that I’m really into. Even rarer to find a DJ who spins music that I’m really into…and have never heard before. Mark is one such DJ. The last time I heard Mark spin, I was literally leaning over every song and saying “Dude! This song is amazing. Who is this?”). He was, for instance, the guy who introduced me to the Stampeders tune “Sweet City Woman”, which has basically become my summer anthem. What new music shall he introduce us to today? In addition to his being a rad DJ, Mark is also a seasoned musician, having played in bands like the Gimmicks, Shake City, The Masons, Sweet Evil and a new as of yet unnamed project. He’s definitely worth tuning into.
