Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #885 – 8/17/2019: Woodstock anniversary Big Stir invasion of the Twirl Radio studios!

Blake Jones and some of The Armoires

Due to the high volume of fun this summer, I have been a little bit behind in posting these blogs and playlists for my radio shows. The show on Saturday, 8/17, just piled even more fun on the already prominent heap of fun that I’ve been involved with lately. This was the day, long planned, where folks from several Big Stir bands would visit me in my Sacramento radio studios.

These guys and gals were all traveling from the Los Angeles and Fresno areas to San Francisco, to be part of the IPO (International Pop Overthrow) music festival, and took a side trip to Sacramento for some radio fun. So here’s the lineup of who we crammed into my studio on that epic day:

Christina Bulbenko, Rex Broome, Larysa Bulbenko of The Armoires.
Blake Jones of Blake Jones & The Trike Shop
John Borack of Popdudes and The Test Pressings, who was filling in on drums for The Armoires on this tour.

In addition, Dean Seavers of Sacramento’s The Decibels hung out for a while, because he wanted to meet the Big Stir folks, and Evan Palley traveled up and down the state with the Big Stir delegation as well.

This was kind of an auspicious date as well. This particular weekend was the 50th anniversary of the legendary Woodstock music festival. So to kind of honor this tradition–we had lots of people in the studio, and several live performances. (No drugs or mud, though.) This show was epic in every way, and you’ve got to listen–if only for the live performances and the laughter. These are a bunch of amazing musicians who do what they do for the love of the music, and I’m proud to call them all friends.

After two hours with Big Stir, they had to hit the road back to San Francisco. I tried to carry on all by myself for the last hour, but man, the afterglow of a wonderful visit kept going for hours. Check the bottom of this post for some bonus photos and videos from the day. Enjoy the show!
