  • The Ledge #591: Halloween

    It’s become a Halloween tradition for this show to celebrate the holiday with over two hours of spooky music. As it is the ultimate rock and roll holiday, it’s never hard to find enough new tunes to fill a show, and this year is no exception. This is a show that should be the soundtrack to your Halloween party, or give the trick or treaters a real treat by blasting this at your front door. After all, they need to be “Ledge-ified” at an early age.  

    Even this week’s entry in the “52 Weeks of Teenage Kicks” fits the spooky theme. Well, at least band’s name does. Ghost Of An American Airman was a Belfast band that formed in the mid-80s, and released a handful of records over the next decade. Like I do every week, however, I must again plead with y’all for more versions of “Teenage Kicks”. If you are a musician, or have any contact with artists that could record their own take on the classic, please contact me!

  • The Ledge #527: New Releases

    Yes, the new release episode was delayed a week this month, but it’s pretty much the same show you would have heard if it was aired in its normal time slot. And, as always, it’s a mix of old and new bands from all over the world. In fact, this one may be a bit more worldly than ever. A twangy Kraftwerk cover from Japan? Yep, that’s The Routes. An Italian Ramone-ish band covering 60s pop music? That’s The Beatersband (and apologies for saying you were Spanish during the show). England, Tunisia, Australia, and many other countries are represented in tonight’s show.

    I would love it if every listener bought at least one record I played on either of these shows. These great artists deserve to be compensated for their hard work, and every purchase surely helps not only pay their bills but fund their next set of wonderful songs. And if you buy these records directly from the artist or label, please let them know you heard these tunes on The Ledge! Let them know who is giving them promotion!
