Twirl Radio #824 – Busting Out More New Music

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 If you haven’t headed into your Saturday night with an earful of Twirl, you’re doing it wrong!

In recent weeks and months, we’ve done so many interviews, that today’s show was a nice chance to take a breather, and just play some songs. Lots of them. And the cool part is the the new 2018 music keeps rolling in, either in my mailbox, my inbox, or sometimes, people just hand me a disc. So we busted out brand new tracks by such artists as Krista D., Daniel Trigger, Lannie Flowers, Michael Simmons, Gretchen’s Wheel, Poplord, Blake Jones & The Trike Shop, The Orange Peels, and more. It’s an embarrassment of musical riches–except that I’m not embarrassed, and neither should you be! Enjoy all this wonderful music, and by all means–please support the artists in any way you can. Buy their music. Go to their shows. Talk them up on social media. Do it now. I’m waiting…okay–enjoy the show!
