Tonight is the debut of Squawkin’ Good Radio on WRUV! Tune in from 8-10 pm on 90.1 FM in Burlington, VT or listen online at wruv.org.
This show takes over from Flight of the Squawkatiel. You’ll still hear the same types of music you heard on that show, but Squawkin’ Good Radio will follow a less rigid format. Instead of one hour of new music followed by one themed hour of music from my collection, I will be playing a mix of my favorite new songs throughout the entire show with some older songs mixed in. This show will also be more flexible for listener requests (within reason). You’ll be hearing selections from my favorite new albums as well as new unsigned, independent artists discovered on Soundcloud or elsewhere.
Tonight you’ll be hearing new tracks from DIIV, Sunflower Bean, Animal Collective, Pillar Point, Daughter, High Highs, and Rob Crow’s Gloomy Place, plus a bunch of other surprises.
If you miss tonight’s show, you can stream it for up to a week after its air date at http://wruv.org/schedule/wednesday
We’re already through the first month in 2016! Now it’s February and it’s been a very warm winter here in Burlington. It’s really strange to have all the snow melting on the first day of February, but I don’t mind. Anyway, this month is full of great new releases that I will be playing on Squawkin’ Good Radio in the next couple months and writing more about on this page. We have new albums this month from Captured Tracks favorites DIIV and Wild Nothing, old favorites like Dr. Dog and Animal Collective, and newer artists I’m excited about like Sunflower Bean and Pinkshinyultrablast. This is what’s coming your way in February:
DIIV – Is The Is Are (Captured Tracks)
Dr. Dog – The Psychedelic Swamp (Anti-)
Sunflower Bean – Human Ceremony (Fat Possum)
School of Seven Bells – SVIIB (Vagrant)
Animal Collective – Painting With… (Domino)
Ra Ra Riot – Need Your Light (Barsuk)
TEEN – Love Yes (Carpark)
Wild Nothing – Life of Pause (Captured Tracks)
Pinkshinyultrablast – Grandfeathered (Club AC30)
Run River North – Drinking From a Salt Pond (Nettwerk)
Yuck – Stranger Things (Mamé)
Here’s a Spotify playlist of songs from all new releases featured this month:
The first month of 2016 has already offered a whole bunch of great music. Here’s a Soundcloud playlist of some of my favorite tracks this month, many of which I’ve played on Flight of the Squawkatiel and will continue playing on Squawkin’ Good Radio.
