Podcast 121: The 90’s Are Alive And Well @ The Shady Groove

90's Music

 

Were the 90’s the last great musical decade? That’s definitely debatable. Here’s what I know: In the 50’s and 60’s rock n roll emerged, the 70’s punk and disco were created, the 80’s had wave and metal. In the 90’s, it wasn’t that a new genre of music was created, but melting pot of styles and genres merged to create a counter-culture movement that sounded musically edgy and different. Grunge, alternative, indie, alt country, and rap were all converging and emerging in this new era of music.

I love it. It takes me back to my years growing up. But regardless if you love it or hate it, one cannot deny the lasting effect that the music and its musicians have had on emerging artists today.

So here is a new edition of The Shady Groove’s Theme-Time Radio: The 90’s are alive and well. Even though this podcast went longer than normal, there still was not enough time to run all the amazingness that happened in this era. I already have enough music prepared to launch another TWO 90’s podcasts, so stay tuned for more….But until then, enjoy this carefully prepared, sonically pleasing radio hour from The Shady Groove.

Here are the tracks that were played:

Nirvana – Smells Like Teen Spirit ++ Red Hot Chili Peppers – The Righteous & The Wicked ++ Uncle Tupelo – Life Worth Living ++ House of Pain – Jump Around ++ Blind Melon – No Rain ++ Candlebox – Far Behind ++ Radiohead – Creep ++ Beastie Boys – Sure Shot ++ Pearl Jam – Better Man ++ Beck – Loser ++ Ween – Roses Are Free ++ Pavement – Cut Your Hair ++ Weezer – Say It Ain’t So ++ Phish – Sample In A Jar ++ Cake – The Distance ++ Blackstreet – No Diggity ++ Sublime – Santeria ++ The Wallflowers – One Headlight ++ Old 97’s – Barrier Reef ++ Ben Folds Five – Battle of Who Could Care Less ++ Arrested Development – Mr. Wendal ++ Guster – Barrel of a Gun ++ G. Love & Special Sauce – Rodeo Clowns ++ Wilco – A Shot In the Arm ++ The Gourds – Ladies Choice

We Like American Music: Podcast #118

American Music

 

What is American Music to you? I think one of the greatest things about American Music is that it can mean something different to everyone. This weeks podcast is a little taste of what it means to me. I sat down and really pondered where the music came from. From it’s Folk, Blues and Jazz roots to its country beginnings, R&B and Soul, through to Rock n Roll and back again. American music has a long, diverse, and storied history; rich in tradition but also heavy on exploration and improvisation. It’s also important to mention that there are many more that I would have loved to add to this list; and even as I write this now several more have popped in my head (Doc Watson, Velvet Underground, Link Wray, The Temptations, and Stevie Wonder just to name a few). So, nevertheless I invite you to listen to my interpretation; soak it in, but also I encourage you to make your own playlist and think of what american music means to you. As always, enjoy, and listen loud.

These are the truly american tracks that were played:

Robert Johnson – Cross Road Blues ++ Chuck Berry – Roll Over Beethoven ++ Otis Redding – I Can’t Turn You Loose – Sam Cooke – Another Saturday Night ++ Leon Bridges – Coming Home ++ Aretha Franklin – I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Love You) ++ Billie Holiday and her Orchestra – Summertime ++ Preservation Hall Jazz Band & The Del McCoury Band – I’ll Fly Away ++ Lead Belly – Midnight Special ++ The Allman Brothers Band – Revival ++ Bruce Springsteen –  4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy) ++ Dawes – From a Window Seat ++ The Band – The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down (live) ++ Woody Guthrie – Going Down The Road Feeling Bad ++ Bob Dylan – You’re No Good ++ The Byrds – You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere ++ Joe Pug – Hymn #101 ++ Johnny Cash – Folsom Prison Blues ++ Buddy Holly – Not Fade Away ++ Grateful Dead – Ripple ++ Alabama Shakes – Gimme All Your Love ++ Father John Misty – Bored In the USA ++ The Gourds – All The Labor
