    IR: The Socal Sessions #34 – Salmon of Capistrano

    09/10/2011

    Yes, there’s a place where musicians instinctively flock like the Salmon of Capistrano. Well the quote goes something like that; obviously off quite a bit, but fits the random theme of the show. Just listen through here and it may suddenly appear when you hear the song about Colorado, or maybe it was the one […]

    IR: The SoCal Sessions #33 – Rarity

    April’s assembly of thirteen local artists have all been in heavy rotation in my player in the last few months via work commutes, expeditions through the ice & snow, powder carving on top of the world, and while sitting in the dark, illuminated only by the glow of the computer monitor – headphones firmly glued […]

    IR: The SoCal Sessions #32 – Stardust

    14/02/2011

    Febuary’s thirteen track show starts off in a comedic rock vein with some strong local tracks inspired by Tenacious D and even containing their rock-god DNA stamped all over them. From here we take you into a stretch of quality indie rock from the Little Heroes through White Lights, with a little Black Watch and […]

    IR: The SoCal Sessions #31 – Riffs & Melodies

    14/11/2010

    Today’s primarily Los Angeles based show slowly crept upward from 6 tracks,  doubling in size as we gradually realized that we had an oversharing problem. While this can swifly turn to embarrassment in social networking circles, here we like to think its a very good thing.   |  TRT 50:36 – NSFW RIFFS & MELODIES Nico […]

    IR: The SoCal Sessions #30 – Get the Metal Out!

    26/10/2010

    The metal has been slowly building in my system for the last few years, to where something drastic had to be done, fortunately right in time for Halloween this year. In this episode I detoxify using questionable methods, and luckily for you that means a break from my normal programming and a longer than normal […]

    IR: The SoCal Sessions #29 – Easy As Pie

    11/10/2010

    Not everyone who sings about our little regional bubble is from the Southern California area, so I decided to place a few tracks at the head of the show today that offer a alternative viewpoint – maybe not pleasing to hardcore regional cheerleaders but still great songs and excellent bands worth your perusal and ultimate […]

    Anny Celsi: Thanksgiving in Hollywood

    28/11/2009

    We were recently sent a haunting track from local Los Angeles (Highland Park) based singer-songwriter ANNY CELSI via our friends at IODA, and we haven’t had a chance to get it up until today – the day after Thanksgiving, yet still in the holiday window. This track was apparently being featured in iTunes Essentials’ ‘Thanksgiving […]

    Step right up! We’ve got eighteen tracks from eighteen different indie artists hailing from the Central Valley region of California, with a regional bullseye on the city of Fresno – presented in the traditional yet beloved mixtape format.

    IR: The SoCal Sessions #27 – Party in Fresno

    16/09/2009

    Per local musician Brian Kenney Fresno’s mission statement, the holy triumvirate of activities in the Central California city of Fresno are: car theft, methlabs and chop shops.   While you often hear the area lovingly roasted for such, the city does contain many more highly notable features, such as their rich musical legacy and tight-knit community […]
