On the Air: Today, 6-8pm (EST) on WXOX ARTxFM Mingle


[Post Update (7/27/2016; 7pm):  I’ve included embedded audio of the show at the bottom of this column.  Also, a link was added to the Psychic Temple line (Song #3) for tour information.]

WXOX ARTxFMSo, it’s happening again.  Tonight, Tuesday (07/26/2016), I’m returning as a guest on the Louisville-based ARTxFM show Mingle, hosted by Kevin Coultas.

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.

1.  Random Charles Mingus tune, which Kevin always begins his show with.

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 an audio embed of the show in case you weren’t able to tune in live or, perhaps, because you’re a sick puppy and have fallen in love with my voice and need to hear it again at all costs.

And, by the way, the magic city neither Kevin nor I could come up with was Evansville, Indiana.  That is one of Psychic Temple’s upcoming tour stops.  You can learn about that tour stop, and others, by following the link I added above just beneath their song line-item (#3).

Thanks to Kevin and ARTxFM for having me on the show to help shine the spotlight on all this great music.

Enjoy!  And seriously, thanks for listening.  I really hope you find some cool new music.
