This vintage playlist, from winter 2013, compiles the 60s and 70s psychedelic, experimental, rock, and garage roots of retrotransmission, much like Lenny Kaye’s Nuggets series documented garage’s influence on punk. The bands on this playlist, such as The Sonics, The Who, ? and the Mysterians, Captain Beefheart. CAN, and Hawkwind, etc. largely influenced people such as Patti Smith, Alan Vega and Martin Rev, and Genesis P-Orridge, respectively,  to make some of the most innovative and influential sounds of the 70s and 80s.

Radio, Radio! New RT 6/1/15

 

For the second to last show EVER on rainydawg radio, I compiled punk, postpunk, rocknroll, and experimental tracks about the radio. Consider it a meta love letter to one of my favorite mediums. I’ve lived for broadcasting live on the radio and hope to get into it again when I’m back in NYC. What’s the ultimate radio tribute on this list? It’s hard to decide between the Ramones’ homage to the rocknroll radio of yore, The Modern Lovers’ ecstatic anthem about driving through your hometown blasting the car stereo, Velvet Underground’s sweet testament to music’s ability to be a life-altering savior or Joy Division’s hypnotic directive to dance, endlessly, to the radio…

This set list from several years ago, which I called “Retrotransmission for Retrotransmission” featured some of the punk and postpunk artists that inspired this radio show in the first place! Lots of the tracks on here were included on my original try-out set list that I presented to rainydawg radio. They told me my inclusion of Guided By Voices’ “Hot Freaks” sealed the deal.
