Off Air - 110 - In Studio - PREGNANT


Daniel Trudeau is PREGNANT

Dan first contacted me a few months ago and though it took me longer than I expected, we had us a nice little phone chat.  At the end of the conversation I knew PREGNANT had to be an in studio sooner than later.

01 - PREGNANT

A few months later and you have today's performance; one of the most unique this show has seen.

A few months later and you have today's performance; one of the most unique this show has hosted.

In this episode Daniel goes into detail on the deceptively minimal make up of his recordings, a new album on the way on three very different mediums and how you can help send his baby around the globe ... there's more to it than that:

Blue Dog Bound

Blue Dog Tate

This weekend is the first of two consecutive Saturdays where you'll hear my take on rockabilly, pop, rock and everything in between during our Saturday night music show Blue Dog Jam.

Right after This American Life I'll be spinning Bowie, Jonathan Richman and a few tracks I've recorded in our studios for Off Air.

It's the closest this show's gettin' to being on the really real airwaves, folks.  Who knows how long it's gonna go on before the plug is pulled so TUNE IN WILL YA???

Saturday February 26th AND March 5th
7:00 PM to 10:00 PM
90.9 FM Sacramento | 90.5 FM Tahoe City/Reno 
88.1 FM Quincy | 91.3 FM Stockton/Modesto
and, of course, online.

New TV On the Radio track!

Brooklyn-based art rock outfit TV On the Radio have a new album (Nine Types of Light) due this Spring. Off Air was just sent the new single, though too late to make the show proper. How about a stream? Sure, that sounds great!

Sister Crayon: Bellow Release Party

Visit a country sans internet over the last few weeks? Maybe you caught the raging Capt. Trips Monkey Pox Nick did. That's the short list of ways you DIDN'T make it to Sister Crayon's album release party February 18th.

Sister Crayon Live 2

Released on Manimal Vinyl, Bellow is the Sacramento trip hop quartet's first full length record. To celebrate they held booked Luigi's Fun Garden with rapper K. Flay and this week's Off Air / In Studio guest, PREGNANT.


Luigi's was packed with a crowd anxious for more than pizza and an average show. Celebrating the hard work of Nick Suhr, Jeffery LaTour, Danni Fernandez, and Terra Lopez was the order of the night.

DJ sets from Boss Magic! and Sex & Weight kept the crowd moving (as much as could be done within the friendly confines of The Fun Garden ) between stage acts. 

Sister Crayon has been the humble "Nooner" concert act at Sac State, become an SEMF mainstay and now is nicely at home as the polished, working road act you're beginning to see all over the place.
 
By the end of the night vocalist Terra Lopez remarked "Sing along if you can, I'm losing my voice, we aren't used to playing this long!" Sister Crayon played Bellow start to finish at the end of a very full night. Either the crowd didn't mind or they were the best sports in the history of live entertainment.

PJ Harvey In Depth Coming Soon!

Since I was ill for much of last week, I couldn't get this produced in a timely fashion:

Despite the date, it WILL be available soon (perhaps in downloadable form, he coyly remarks) as Michael and I recorded our thoughts on the record earlier this week!
