The Soundtrack to your life story, with a twist ending. From new wave to post-apocalypse, from garage punk to garage sale.
Keeping it under eight tracks.
Queen of the Cowbell.
Heavy metal, e-z listening, horror, disco, hardcore, jazz, harsh noise, pop, folk, new wave, industrial, etc.
Scandinavian folk classical ghost stories and cod surrealism. All Current music.
Unconventional music in your stereo. Sounds from all the known and unknown beat makers, the heavy bass shakers, the soulful melody players, and conscious rhyme sayers.
Caffeine in hand. Accidental and adventurous. Unstaid and unsettled. Experimental and empirical. Occasionally flustered but always passin' muster. Dammit Jim, I'm a simple country DJ, not a miracle worker! Get your radio-fu here!
Good morning Mr. Phelps. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to listen. From the deepest darkest heart of the mission come the throbbing beats of something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. All for you.
Tidbits - this and that, a little somethin' somethin'. Do that thing. U knowww.
"You asked me how to get out of the finite dimensions when I feel like it. I certainly don't use logic when I do it. Logic's the first thing you have to get rid of."
sickly heavy heart rock, lifted sugar eye pop, pins me to the ground wave, and mirror me your memories twee.
What you hear is only most of what you get; requests, mostly of the rockin' kind, are incredibly welcome. It's opinion scattered among caffeinated punk, hip-hop, ska, country, rap, rockabilly and practically anything else thrown at the listeners like so much rotten, yet strange, fruit. Run-on sentences are a way of life!
What Heino making love to a manatee would sound like, only better. Unless she actually plays Heino in which case it sounds worse than a manatee making love to Heino.
He will sleep 'till noon,
but before it's dark,
he'll play every rockin' tune
this side of Til-den Park.
Kenny has it better
than a millionaire,
if you've got the chops
the Bear will give you some air!
Psychedelic guitar freakouts, free jazz blowouts, and anything and everything in off-kilter pop, soul, funk. Tune in and join me out in deep leftfield.
Always some classical, a lot of punk, a mixture of anything else weird or funny or mood-of-the-day, plus a lot of very inane commentary. Usually there's something French too.
"Radio has helped to make people fixated on one particular kind of a sound and one particular kind of a style. And, a lot of people today, since music education is virtually nonexistent in public schools, they don't even know what they've been missing in terms of music from other cultures, music from America from other periods, (and) different styles. You may not like it all, but if you don't even know that it exists, how are you going to make up your mind?" - Frank Zappa
Aborting boredom in the Bay Area and beyond, Penny Royal is keeping things loud and weird on the KALX airwaves. From avant-noise, free jazz, to punk rock, there's a little something for everyone when Penny Royal takes over. Tune in and turn on.
The Radio Jane Doe
Hello, my name is Pop...and I am a musical hedonist.
Presented in low-quality stereophonic sound, the Scratchy Vinyl show is the program on KALX where the music will go in one ear and out the other
Wandering the foggy moors of dreamland with only a Victrola to light the way. Where songs about Jesus and Satan intermix with ditties about cheeses and seitan. Tipping sacred cows as we stumble towards a kind of Valhalla where Ish Kabibble shares a table with Subbulakshmi.
Regular DJ to be announced
When imagination blooms on the bowers of the Gods, the Muse provides the fruits--a la carte or full service. All genres considered (except Muzak).
A manic, sleep-deprived stew of '70s punk, glam, rockabilly, '50s rocknroll, doowop, '60s girl groups, pub rock, garage, punkrocknroll, and whatever else provokes riots on your own personal dance floor.
Glam-a-Rama Metallic Banana - Music for the Mosh Pits, Hootenanny's and Disco Ballrooms of life. Viva Eclectica!
Got'em, if you smoke'm. Pioneering the aural trail with the odd, indie and international to live layering bionic meltdowns. Spreading seeds of sound, far and near - everything you've never heard (or not heard quite like this)! Take the time to smell the weeds . . .
From punk to classical, from Paris to Hong Kong, from noise to polyphony, from the islands of Cape Verde to the island of Alameda, all without leaving the comfort of your frequency.
