Twirl Radio #806: Jody Porter

After ten years at a National Public Radio station in Chicago, Mike Lidskin returned to California in 1997 and created Twirl Radio, a weekly two hour radio program which features the finest independent music and artists from the rock era. Mike’s on a mission to not “just spin rock music, but to educate listeners about this vital art form.” Indeed, he doesn’t just announce the songs, but gives histories about some of the artists, the albums, and the songs themselves.

You can catch Twirl live each Saturday afternoon, from 4:00 to 6:00 PM PST on Sacramento’s Voice, KUBU 96.5 FM, and archived right here, as well as at http://www.twirlradio.com. If you haven’t headed into your Saturday night with an earful of Twirl, you’re doing it wrong!

THIS WEEK’S GUEST:

On today’s show, we got to meet Jody Porter. You might recognize him as the guitarist from Fountains of Wayne. He’s currently staying in the UK, so we had an in-depth, middle of the night chat about his 2017 solo album Pacifier, a really great listen. He explained the concept behind the album, and we learned of his influences, how the album came together, and some exciting news about what he’s working on next. There’s a lot of depth to this album, and not only are the songs good, they sound great. The album was mixed on tape at Abbey Road Studios (yes, THOSE Abbey Road Studios), and Jody was incredibly pleased with the results. More info at https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/jodyporter4
