Where’s the podcasts?
Well, I’ve been negligent in putting out a show lately. I just haven’t felt much like it since the holidays for some reason. I don’t know how I did it while I was working, but it just seems to be a whole lot of work even for a retiree. Read the rest of this entry »
I’ve done a Christmas Music show each year since this podcast started, but this is the first year I’ve been able to stick to my goal of using all music by local musicians. I hope you enjoy…
The first time I uploaded this file, it got cut off. Here’s the whole show!

I recorded the Buffalo Chips recently at their Fall Jam concert at the University of Buffalo Student Union on Nov. 17, 2007. I heard of the Chips not too long ago and thought they’d be a fresh, different sound for the podcast. I hope you enjoy their music as much as I did.
When you meet them, they’re just a bunch of your average college kids, casual, irreverent, always kidding around, and when they step on stage that really doesn’t change. They have as much fun there as anywhere. But when they sing, wow! This doesn’t just happen. A lot of hard work and practice must have gone on. Read the rest of this entry »
After two years of promises, I finally got together with The Dustmen to do a podcast.
I’ve known Russ and Brian since before they formed The Dustmen. We all were fans of the former celtic band Kilbrannan and used to all be at the same shows. In fact, encouragement from Kirk McWhorter of Kilbrannan and now Penny Whiskey, was one of the things that got The Dustmen started.
Of course, we discuss some of the history of The Dustmen in the interview portion of the show. Read the rest of this entry »
This is the final band I have from the Buffalo Original Music Festival last August 19th, 2007. I know it’s taken a while to get all of the great music out and into podcasts, but I hope it’s been worth the wait. It was a big project as well as a learning experience.
The intention is to make it an annual festival and I hope they do. The Colden Country Inn played host to it and they sure have a nice place for it there. The organizers knew exactly what they wanted to do as far as showcasing local musicians and put together an amazing lineup.
But back to the podcast. The band this week is Flood The Shoreline, a four-piece rock band that during school hails from SUNY Fredonia. Three of the band are from Niagara County, Niagara Falls and Lewiston. The fourth, is from Binghampton. So, they are based out of Fredonia, and it’s good to feature a band from the southern part of WNY. I hear a lot of good things about the music scene down that way, but unfortunately, don’t get down there much. Read the rest of this entry »
