The show runs from 6-8pm (EST) on WXOX 97.1 FM.
If your location happens to fall outside the station antenna’s range, then you can listen in via the internet. Visit this station site page (LINK) to either listen via their embedded audio player or download one of their recommended apps.
And, remember, if you’re playing the custom ARTxFM Mingle drinking game… each time I mispronounce a musician’s name, you take a shot. Double it if I also misidentify an album title, song title, or geographical location. If I forget either Kevin’s or my own name, then it’s three shots. Might be a good idea to be proactive and call in sick to work for Wednesday right now.
And speaking of artists… here’s a tentative playlist of songs I’ll be featuring. Included are links to write-ups previously posted on this site or notes of when write-ups will become available, either on this site or as part of my monthly recommendations column for the Bandcamp site.

And hopefully that’s enough music to fill up the two-hour show duration. Otherwise, I’m gonna have to start singing Pearl Jam tunes to a live studio audience (aka Kevin Coultas, poor poor Kevin Coultas)
And here’s a link to the audio archive of the show, where you can listen afer-the-fact to this show and previous guest appearances or, mercifully, those shows where Kevin takes the reins solo.
Here’s the audio from tonight’s show…
Thanks again to Kevin Coultas, WXOX-FM and ARTxFM for having me on.
