Twirl Radio #835 – The Relaxed Edition

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!

Today’s show was a chance to enjoy a laid-back summer afternoon in Sacramento. I decided to take a slight break from the interviews this afternoon. I’d done so many over the past few months–some days, I did two and even three interviews–in a single episode! And I was given the opportunity to do a couple of double shows. So for today, it was time to kick back, and kick out the new music to you. Lots of new stuff, and some older stuff. Musical magnificence from Adam Marsland, Danny Wilkerson, and Sunshine Boys, just to pick three off the top.

So I hope you enjoy this week’s edition of Twirl: The Relaxed Version!
