DJ Mike Show #216 – 5/15/2021: Interviews with Bob Lord and Jim Basnight!

DJ Mike Lidskin spent ten years at a National Public Radio station in Chicago, returned to California in 1997 and created Twirl Radio, and now hosts 30 hours of programming a month at Woody Radio. His two shows, “The Show With No Name” and “The Saturday Thing”, feature 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 the DJ Mike Shows live on Tuesday nights at 8:00 p.m. PST and Saturdays at 10:00 a.m. PST at Woody Radio,

On this show, I had fun and lively conversations with producer/musician Bob Lord, and rocking singer/songwriter Jim Basnight. Both have great new albums out. Bob’s is called Playland Arcade, chock full of exciting instrumentals, and of course, my new theme song, “Yo Soy Miguel”.
