Patrick recently went to the Bourbon and Beyond Festival. Here are his dispatches from the drive from Falls Church VA to Louisville KY.
It’s episode 666 on Rockin’ the Suburbs. So Patrick invites a mischievous guest to the basement.
Mike Wagner of Houston fills in for Jim & Patrick. He talks about the fine art of the succinct guitar solo.
It’s a bit of a mellow month for Patrick, in terms of new music. Not in terms of transportation!! Songs by jazz saxophonist Kamasi Washington and guitarist Marisa Anderson (plus a cover by the great Nick Lowe). Rest in Power, Kia Rondo.
“More Than Words.” You’ve heard the song? No. 1 hit for Extreme. Yeah, the band mostly sounds nothing like that. So many CDs returned to record stores.
We talked about Van Halen earlier. And we hear about it later. Calls from Craig Rosen and Justin Steiner and an email from Jo Fleischer, as Fan Mail Week continues.
We conclude Van Halen Week with another huge-seller, the epic “1984.” Eddie plays the keys, and Dave eases the seat back.
Thanks to Kevin Spain for joining the discussion all week.
Today, we discuss two classic Van Halen albums — one for Eddie (1981’s “Fair Warning”) and one for Dave (1982’s “Diver Down”). Joining us all week is guest Kevin Spain.
Have you seen Junior’s grades? Have you heard Van Halen’s third album, “Women and Children First” from 1980? We explore the album’s delights as part of Van Halen Week, with guest Kevin Spain.
Van Halen Week continues. Today, we discuss the band’s second album, released in 1979. It sold millions and was still a bit of a commercial disappointment compared to the debut. But … “Dance the Night Away”!
