Today on Twirl–Vegas With Randolph interview, and Taters/Janie Bowen tribute!

Kind of a big, fun show today. I had the chance to chat with Eric Kern and John Ratts of the Washington D.C.-based band Vegas With Randolph. We’ll hear three tracks from their forthcoming release, and we’ll find out what drives their music.

A couple of weeks ago, we were saddened to learn of the passing of Janie Bowen, of Richmond, Virginia–a huge Taters and music fan. Back in February, Janie was kind enough to offer up her Zebra Room to us for the Coast to Coast CD Release Party for The Taters album, Menagerie. We’ll hear a little bit of that party/performance/broadcast on today’s show.

Oh yeah–last weekend, I was in legendary (that’s radio-speak for “infamous”) Berkeley, California, hunting for CD’s at some of their world-class used CD shops. We’ll hear a couple of gems that I unearthed during that expedition.

Enjoy the show, and think of Janie as you listen to this one. It airs 4-6pm,

Twirl Radio is on YouTube!

Yesterday was a pretty big day for my radio show. My friends Rich Samuels and Greg Baldwin of worldaccordingtorich, an emerging YouTube channel, documented a day in the life of Twirl Radio. We had musical guests Mark Bacino on the phone, and Adrian Bourgeois and Ricky Berger live in the studio!

Ricky Berger and Adrian Bourgeois

Ricky Berger and Adrian Bourgeois perform live in the Twirl studios, 6/12/2010.

Today’s show was an incredible live experience. We had a telephone interview with New York City singer/songwriter Mark Bacino, and talked about his new album Queens English. We had an in-studio interview/session with Sacramento singer/songwriters Adrian Bourgeois and Ricky Berger, who just wrapped up an incredible two month cross-country tour. They performed three of their songs live for us on the air today. And finally, Rich Samuels, of the You Tube channel worldaccordingtorich and former California write-in gubernatorial candidate Greg Baldwin were there to film and document the whole
experience. Here’s the playlist:

Big radio/video/live session/phone interview show today on Twirl!

Opportunities abound. Today’s Twirl Radio is going to be the biggest show I’ve had in a while. What do we have going on?

Well, let’s take it from the top. We’ll have a live phone interview with New York City singer/songwriter Mark Bacino, who just released a magnificent album called Queens English. We’ll find out what the name means, and hear some tracks.

A couple of up-and-coming Sacramento musicians, Adrian Bourgeois and Ricky Berger are going to be visiting us in the studio. They’ve just completed a three month long driving tour across the United States. I’ll bet you’re curious to see how many miles they’ve logged on the tour van. We’ll chat with them, and hear some of their latest music as well.

Former California gubernatorial write-in candidate Greg Baldwin, a longtime friend of Twirl Radio, will also be in the house. We might even coax some punditry out of him today.

And did I mention that a multiple Emmy Award winning television producer and his crew will be documenting all of today’s activities? Rich Samuels, from worldaccordingtorich (just search for this on YouTube, and subscribe to it), has been strongarmed into asked if he could make Twirl the subject of one of his Vlogs. Who am I to say no?

Join us today, Saturday, from 4-6pm Pacific, at It should be a lot of fun!
