Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #809 – 1/13/2018

Enjoy this picture of my new headphones!

Today’s show started out one way, but turned into something else, equally as good. We were supposed to interview outsider folk singer-songwriter Amy Annelle, but circumstances beyond our control prevented that. But we did get to hear a couple of her songs, including her cover of Townes Van Zandt’s “Buckskin Stallion Blues”–which appeared in the Golden Globe Best Film, “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”! So we’re going to reschedule our chat with Amy sometime in the near future.

So what did the show turn into? A two hour feast of some great indie rock ‘n’ roll! And even the tunes by the not-so-indies were pretty great and unusual. Also–I had the chance to test out some new headphones that I acquired this week, so the show sounds even better than ever–to me, at least!

But stick close, my friends. Next week is the special 20th Anniversary edition of Twirl Radio. And two weeks after that: the annual Twirlie Awards show!

Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #808 – 1/6/2018: Vic’s Picks: A conversation with Victor Erwin of Spyderpop Records!

Victor Erwin

We started off the first show of 2018 with a bang–a chat with Victor Erwin of Spyderpop Records, of Arlington, Texas! I’ve known Vic for about four years, and I’ve been wanting to get him on the show ever since the day we met. We were hanging out in Texas, enjoying barbeque and beers, and chatting for hours about music. Next day, we were at the Spyderpop Records office, watching music videos (loudly), and listening to music (loudly), and talking about music (at a moderate volume).

Vic’s Pick

Vic eats, drinks, breathes, sleeps, works, and plays music. His love for music is contagious and endearing. So we’re going to kick off the occasional series, “Vic’s Picks” (much like the blog series he does in the News section of Spyderpop’s website: Vic’s Picks at Spyderpop Records). Today’s topic was the watershed musical year of 1977, and specifically, the three punk bands who led the way: The Ramones, The Clash, and The Sex Pistols. I thoroughly enjoyed the conversation, and I suspect you did too.

Spyderpop records is a great champion of amazing independent rock and roll, and you should check out some of their offerings:
