I usually host a program on my local community radio station. I'm on every other Saturday from 8 to midnight (Pacific USA). I play mostly vinyl that includes all kinds of genres. I even spin spoken word records. With all of the hustle of late summer, I have been unable to make my shows. Fortunately I have been able to find a great substitute - Mr. Jack Endino.
It was over 20 years ago that I met the man when he recorded the first Nirvana demo. To this day we stay connected through music, except for the time we take to tinker on motorcycles. Jack has a pretty good-sized record collection. It's quite the trove of Hard Rock records. I've never seen more Ulrich Roth solo albums in one place!
He helped with my last show and here's a sample of what he played.
Blue Cheer "Fruit and Icebergs" from New Improved. The band came out of San Francisco in the late sixties. Instead of peace and love, this power trio served up some of the heaviest music ever. I was like three years old when this proto-grunge music hit the scene. The band is owed a lot.
Deep Purple "No One Came" from Fireball. These British heavies funk it up here. You can hear the sound come together on Fireball for their next monster record Machine Head.
Soundgarden "Ugly Truth" from Louder Than Love Jack's keeping the heavy rock multigenerational. He's also holding it close as he's recorded this band too.
Here's the entire set list of the last show. Jack's on Saturday night, 10 to midnight. (That's 5 Sep.10 - 0500 to 0700 GMT)
