RERUN - US & UK Power Pop - Originally Broadcast 5/4/09

Another trip back to the Pirate Cat Radio days, which was a trip back to the 1970s, chronicling the power pop scenes in both the US and UK.  It's actually one of my favorite shows that I've ever done.  On this podcast or even counting all the television sitcoms I've been on, which admittedly isn't any but still.

Great Solos - 9/11/13

While maybe more associated with 70s and 80s rock music, post punk was no stranger to some pretty kick-ass guitar solos.  And more than just being kick-ass, some of these solos were approached with the same kind of fresh creativity we've come to expect from the genre.  And more than just guitar solos, there were some pretty kick-ass, creative keyboard, bass, and even a drum solo.

This show was all about those moments featuring songs with great instrumental solos.  Check it out by going to:

RERUN! - American 80s Alternative Show - Originally Broadcast 1/26/09

Another greatest hit from back in the Pirate Cat Radio days, this was my homage to the uprise of American alternative rock of the 1980s, as the post punk sound would evolve into something more roots-inspired and eventually, mainstream.  While maybe that doesn't sound inherently like a great thing, the music was great and interesting and I believe you can even get college credit for listening to it  At least 80s college credit.  Check out the link below:
