Friends, I don’t want to spend too much time pulling on your coat,
but– many of you know that I have been involved with KRCB-FM Radio 91
for many years (19 to be exact).
KRCB is having its first membership drive of 2015, and I would love to have
some of our LRS homies check us out. Maybe even donate!
Here is a link to a short blog I wrote about my love of radio:

On to New Releases:
for the week of February 3, 2015
2015-2-3(2)

Bob Dylan: Shadows in the Night

The 36th album from the iconic singer/songwriter, and his first new music since 2012’s worldwide hit TEMPEST. Regarding the repertoire on this album, Bob Dylan commented, ”It was a real privilege to make this album. I’ve wanted to do something like this for a long time but was never brave enough to approach 30-piece complicated arrangements and refine them down for a 5-piece band. That’s the key to all these performances. We knew these songs extremely well. It was all done live. Maybe one or two takes. No overdubbing. No vocal booths. No headphones. No separate tracking, and, for the most part, mixed as it was recorded. I don’t see myself as covering these songs in any way. They’ve been covered enough. Buried, as a matter a fact. What me and my band are basically doing is uncovering them. Lifting them out of the grave and bringing them into the light of day.” Bob Dylan’s five previous studio albums have been universally hailed as among the best of his storied career, achieving new levels of commercial success and critical acclaim for the artist.
2015-2-3(3) Two Gallants: We Are Undone
Two Gallants is a folk rock duo from San Francisco, California.
The name comes from the title of a story by James Joyce in Dubliners.
We Are Undone is the fifth album from the Alt-Rock duo. While singer/guitarist Adam Stephens and drummer Tyson Vogel have stayed true to the two-person format since their acclaimed 2004 debut, their sound has evolved considerably over the years. Sonically, the thrash blues of the ”Some Trouble” is balanced by the austerity of ballads such as ”There’s So Much I Don’t Know.”
2015-2-3(4) Kenny Wheeler: Songs for Quintet
In December 2013 Kenny Wheeler recorded what was to be his last album. SONGS FOR QUINTET, an inspirational session featuring Wheeler compositions of recent vintage (plus a fresh approach to ”Nonetheless”, first heard on ANGEL SONG), was recorded in Abbey Road Studio with four of Kenny’s favorite players. Stan Sulzmann, John Parricelli, Chris Laurence and Martin France work together marvellously as an interactive unit and provide support for the tender and lyrical flugelhorn of the bandleader.
2015-2-3(5)  The Church:Further Deeper
the 25th studio album from the legendary Aussie band. After over three decades of making music in various formats, lineups, places and cognitive states, this is a band who have committed to exploring unchartered sonic territories. With long-time member Marty Willson-Piper being unavailable, Ian Haug (formerly of Powderfinger) came on board to partner the iconic guitar playing of founding member Peter Koppes. Describing this album,”The magic started on day one,” says singer/bass player Steve Kilbey. ”Someone strummed a chord or struck a drum or plucked a note and we were off. We wrote and recorded like demons and it was inspiring to feel every member using all his resources in the service of this record”. Twenty-six songs were born over eight days of exploration in Sydney in late 2013. Guitarist Peter Koppes, recalibrating his personal canvas in the absence of his long-time foil Marty Willson-Piper, drew palpable inspiration from the quartet’s remixed chemistry. ”This new incarnation of the band with Ian Haug has brought a joyous energy to the music we’ve written together,” he says.

We don’t just sell records at the Last Record Store—we also talk about them, obsessively, all day long.
That discussion moves into radio land: Tuesday mornings at 11am (repeated Wednesdays at 7pm) when KRCB-FM pairs the Last Record Store’s (and Mid-Day KRCB program host) Doug Jayne with longtime Morning DJ Brian Griffith for The New Release Hour. A full hour of commercial-free new releases each week, played and evaluated by two pros who know the music best!
KRCB is at 90.9 and 91.1-FM, or online at krcb.org. Tune in!
TUNE IN, TURN ON, AND DROP… THE NEEDLE!

Your second chance to listen in on the discussion comes with Needle Droppings, a weekly new-release segment with our very own Doug Jayne and a rotating panel of music junkies, usually including Michelle Marques of KSRO and KRCB, Petaluma Vice Mayor Gabe Kearney, Gabe Meline from KQED, Blair Hardman from Zone Recording and more!

Needle Droppings airs Fridays as part of The Drive With Steve Jaxon at 4:20pm on KSRO, at 1350-AM, 103.5-FM, and online atksro.com. Tune in!
Full moon and empty arms
The moon is there for us to share
But where are you?
A night like this could weave a memory
And every kiss could start a dream for two
Full moon and empty arms
Tonight, I’ll use the magic moon
To wish upon
And next full moon
If my one wish comes true
My empty arms will be filled with you
Full moon and empty arms
Tonight, I’ll use the magic moon
To wish upon
And next full moon
If my one wish comes true
My empty arms will be filled with you
Songwriters MOSSMAN/KAYE

See you on the Avenue!
