State Controlled Radio #198-201 [[UT #29/WTAI/A Valentine From Me To You/Yoko Ono & The Plastic Ono Band]


Hello everyone…

Happy Thursday to you all; just got back from Berkeley after two days of whirlwind activity which included taking in a once-in-a-lifetime show [at Oakland’s Fox Theatre] with Yoko Ono and her newly reconstituted Plastic Ono Band, led by her son Sean Lennon.  I will post the set list and some notes on my blog site later today but suffice it to say that the show was historic and pretty amazing on all fronts.  See if you want to hear more about it.

Meanwhile, there have been four State Controlled Radio programs since the last e-missive and info on all four shows can be found below.

There is lots of cool activity on the horizon and as details emerge I will keep you posted.  I had a great time with Listening To Rocks last weekend when we played the Casbah with The Silent Comedy and Tan Sister Radio.  Again, congrats to Roger & Sara Morrison on their 3rd wedding anniversary.

Speaking of playing music, it appears that SUNSET TEMPLES is going to be performing on Tuesday, April 6th with Behind The Wagon at the Radio Room.  Again, I will keep you posted.

For over a decade I have been invited to contribute to a Robyn Hitchcock tribute series of CDs entitled GLASS FLESH.  The series is the brainchild of RH fan Bayard Catron and this week I’m gonna record a track for Volume Four.  I’ll let you know how it all turns out once it is completed.

And, this month for 2nd Saturday at Hamilton’s Tavern I am putting together a two-hour program on Thin Lizzy in honor of that week’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration.  There will be a third hour of Irish rock as well, curated either by myself or AJ.  It WILL be tremendous fun.  Saturday, March 13th from 5 to 8 PM.  1521 30th Street, San Diego, CA 92102

I hope that you are enjoying your February.  March (and Spring) will be here before you know it.  Here’s to growing & cultivating new things…and speaking of which, time to draft a MISSION STATEMENT.

Thanks for being involved in this community together and I look forward to seeing you soon.

Peace everyone,
