Eccentric Groove Oct 20, 2012

It's hard not to feel like playing some sexy beats and party jams after seeing the phenomenal fashions and performances of Chico's local design collective Chikoko. It was some good fortune to get to do some radio tonight, and I was definitely feeling the vibes.  Hope you enjoy it too...

Inspiration round-up for the upcoming radio show on Saturday night

It's been nearly a month since the first Eccentric Groove radio show took over from the After After Party, and we're coming up on the next installment, this Saturday night at 10pm.

During this month I've been lucky to play music twice live and on the radio once (hope to obtain that recording of the Wax On this afternoon, actually) and I've been listening to many fantastic records and recordings, old and new, as well as making some original music, so I thought I'd share what's rolling around inside my mind...

First, some wayback psychedelia remixed by DJ Me DJ You...

I super-liked one-time local producer Mr. Rogers' wobbled-out psybreaks cover of the Talking Heads; I think the Woo Wizard would approve. He's playing it here atop the BETA float at Chico's Festival of Lights last weekend:

Heard this on a podcast today... wicked track from Deetron with singer Hercules:

Alright, bring on the Saturday night show! I'll be at the Chikoko fashion show bef…

The Wax On - October 4, 2012

It's a great challenge and joy to slip into another DJ's big shoes and bring your own spin to their style. I'm glad to have had a first opportunity to drive the Funk Bus for DJ Spenny whose Wax On radio show is a long-running pillar of the KZFR Thursday afternoon lineup. Get ready for the funk bombs!

Getting the Wax On! Today!

It's an awfully long time until October 20th when the Eccentric Groove radio show spins up again, so I've been jonesing to play some funky music lately. Well... let's get a fix together. DJ Spenny has graciously let me take over his Wax On radio show this afternoon from 3-5 on KZFR, so I've pulled out some of the deepest funk in my collection for the afternoon. Strictly vinyl, seen!
