Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #700 – 10/3/2015: Our 700th show, with Gail George and Craig Daniel!

Twirl Radio started in January, 1998, in Sacramento, California, at Access Sacramento’s “The Voice” radio station. The first song ever played on Twirl was “Everybody Loves Me But You”, by Juliana Hatfield. It’s been a fun road so far, and here we are in October, 2015, with 700 shows in the bag.

Today’s Twirl Radio is a home for excellent independent musicians and discerning music listeners. The majority of the music we play is by indie artists, with a sprinkling of well known music thrown in. The point is that there are many independent musicians who are every bit as good as the “majors”, and can stand right beside them on any playlist.

We now broadcast not only on the internet (, but on terrestrial radio at KUBU 96.5 FM in Sacramento.

Show #700 expanded to three full hours for the special occasion. It featured New York City (former Sacramentan) singer-songwriter Gail George as our special co-host, live in studio. We also had a live phone interview with Craig Daniel of Fresno band Jet Electro. And to sweeten the deal, we had recorded greetings from many of the artists who we play on the show.

Here’s the playlist from Saturday, October 3, 2015, Show #700.

Podcast from Twirl Radio Presents #1 now available!

Twirl Radio Presents #1 (4/17/2013) (length 1:18:46)

Twirl Radio Presents flyer-page001

The podcast from the first-ever live Twirl Radio Presents show is now available! This epic show happened on April 17, 2013, at 50 Mason Social House in San Francisco, and the legendary Debora Iyall, of Romeo Void fame, headlined as part of Debora Iyall Group (DIG). They absolutely killed it, with their guitar/ sax/ keyboard attack, and Debora’s vocals in perhaps the best form of her career.

The Corner Laughers, a marvelous pop band from San Francisco, closed out the show with their ukulele/guitar based sound. Sweet vocals from Karla Kane delivering well-crafted clever lyrics over upbeat melodies left the audience literally begging for more.

Blake Jones & the Trike Shop came the farthest to be at this show, representing their hometown of Fresno with a fun, quirky, masterful set. Not only did they rock, Blake’s two songs played on theremin wowed the crowd.

Hometown heroes Felsen, at least Andrew Griffin and Cristian Hernandez, delivered a definitive opening set of acoustic renditions of their rockers. They set a high standard for the evening.

And truth in advertising was never truthier than The Bay Area Brit, aka Matty Stone, who was genuinely born in Great Britain, and genuinely lives in the Bay Area. His humo(u)rous musings about funny and crazy people from both sides of the “pond” delighted the audience.

Enjoy this taste of Twirl Radio Presents. 1 hour 18 minutes of great live entertainment. And stay tuned–we will be doing this again soon!
