Well, DJ Jen decided to take a vacation. A much deserved vacation. So while she was out gallivanting the city nights while dodging sexy city men under heavy moonlight, Dirty Jeff got to sit in her chair, fill her shoes, and taste the sweet life from the captain’s seat on her show at KXLU (88.9FM Los Angeles).
The dynamo force that is DJ Jenny Gee of KXLU and Dirty Jeff of DHR is nearly overbearing. The sheer incredulity of the mind-blowing [...]
The much anticipated full length debut from LA rock n’ roll band Manhattan Murder Mystery finally comes to completion. Los Angeles will see an initial and exclusive local release of the album this weekend as they perform for the occasion at Origami Vinyl, Sat Mar 26.
There’s been a string of MMM cuts and an EP or more streaming out over the last couple of years to hold us over, but we know the band is as excited about this release [...]
It’s not the most intelligent or clever of titles. Perhaps it’s a bit crass, admittedly childish and vulgar; but I had no choice. Catching the Seasons live for the first time left me with one overwhelming reaction… and as I panned over the crowd, I could see the same sentiments mirrored across their faces as well… The Seasons are fucking cool!
Seasons are a Highland Park-based band within the greater Los Angeles area. They are Nik Garcia, vocals, guitar; John Seasons, [...]
Today’s song of the day honors The Terrapin for a job really well done with their January Friday night residency at Casey’s Irish Pub in downtown LA. They featured special guest bands and DJ’s each week, including the DJ duo of Dirty Jeff of DHR and DJ Jenny Gee of KXLU.
Hats and shells off to The Terrapin. Enjoy their tune “Drag“, and look for a new album release from them real soon!
An excellent show before Christmas, with not so much Christmas music, but great jams all around. We also had a 16 year old special surprise guest from Czech Republic laying down some sweet tunes. Here’s what we played…
Handel 1741/16th Century Welsh.. – “joy to the world/deck the halls /o holy night”
Balkan Beat Box – “9-4 the ladress”
Devendra Banhart – “sea horse”
Grand Elegance – “hearts on fire”
The Growlers – “camino muerto”
Fitz & The Tantrums – “breakin the chains of love”
“I always wanted to be a rock star, but pretty much put all those dreams aside… It wasn’t until I turned 50 that music would become my passion and transform my life.”
So says Robert Deller, Redondo Beach CA resident, singer/songwriter, and founder of The Robert Deller Band.
Many childhood dreams become “childish” fantasies as life takes its relentless hold over our responsibilities and priorities. Every day, astronauts become staff managers, doctors become electricians, professional [...]
Another excellent Thursday show with DJ Jen of KXLU. Spun lots of new music and some fantastic older stuff, including an Indian-influenced set with a classic cover of “Light My Fire” by Ananda Shankar (none other than Ravi Shankar’s nephew). Here’s what we played…
Lord Huron – “the problem with your daughter” (new add)
The Byrds – “bells of rhymney”
The Cyrkle – “please don’t ever leave me”
The Arbors – “so nice”
Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings – “window shopping”
The Mighty Hannibal – [...]
Ring in the the future with Pizza!’s “The Future?”
It’s funny, DHR is based in Los Angeles (as is Pizza!), but our other half is in Florida – and I’m always asking Dirty Jake, “So how’s the future?” Afterall, he get’s a 3 hour head start on 2011, sly jerk. But I’m finishing my coffee.
Happy End of 2010 y’all! Thanks for grooving with us; thanks for listening and supporting independent-based music; thanks for making your music; and thanks for working together [...]
Today’s day for song of the day is a very special day indeed – Dirty Jake’s little dude’s 1st Birthday. So here’s a birthday song of the day to you Dirty Hunter… “Birthcake” from The Terrapin.
You’ll undoubtedly be a rad little dude since you’re growing up around such great music. If your dad tries to slip you any weak music, just let me know and I’ll take care of it. Happy Birthday buddy!
It was perhaps a groundbreaking day in radio history when DJ Jen and Dirty Jeff interviewed Fartbarf live over the airwaves at KXLU studios, 88.9FM Los Angeles. An interview with Stephen Hawking is about the only thing that could have come close, unless of course you consider Optimus Prime of the Autobots.
Be sure to check out incredible new Fartbarf tracks on DHR from their “Improv Cassette Vault: #001″.
