Tonight will be the next to the last installment of my long running radio show The Groove Tomb. I wanna thank everybody who has supported the show for the nearly five years it has been on the air. It was about this time five years ago that I moved to Tucson from Washington D.C. where I had been a host on the now defunct Capitol Radio and began subbing shifts at KXCI. I enjoyed Capitol Radio, but I found my lack of programming power frustrating. It was around Thanksgiving of 2005 that KXCI gave me the opportunity to host a show that I was in complete control of. The first couple of years, the show ran from 2AM-4AM. I was eventually given the 12Am -2AM witching hour. There is romance for me inherent in late night radio. I never wanted to be a daytime DJ. Often people would comment on the late hour of the show. For every week I didn’t want to drag my ass in and stay up all night playing records, there was a week where it felt magical to be pumping the airwaves on the overnight haul. It was said about Ed Wood Jr.’s movies something to the effect that no matter what time of day you watched them, it felt like it was 2AM. That was the vibe I wanted for The Groove Tomb.

My interest is primarily punk and garage rock with 60s and 70s soul, reggae, and oddball tunes thrown in. I occasionally received complaints about my schizophrenic playlists, but more often I got calls from those of you who appreciate a wide range of music. Our culture is becoming homogenized at an alarming rate, and I urge you to keep your ears open even when you don’t like something. Music and art have become too compartmentalized and if you don’t think culture is suffering now, just wait a few years. We are heading for a serious crash. So support your local record stores and art galleries. Do your best to drop your attitude and get out there and shake up people’s expectations. There is nothing punk about just being punk.

My favorite shows were the Halloween shows and the rare occasion when I could come up with a theme. I did an all bands that start with the word the theme that I was fond of. Also, my Lux Interior tribute is a favorite tape that I hang on to. Tonight’s agenda is to bring out songs for a themed show that I never finished where I play all songs that repeat the same word. The idea started when I thought I could put together an all Yea Yea Yea show. Now it will include songs like Yea, Yea, Louie Louie, and Neat, Neat, Neat. Since that won’t take up two hours, I am going to pull out records that have come out since I started the show because, as I leave the air, the dance goes on. No matter how snobby I become, I try really hard to remember that there are still good bands out there. Next week will include whatever of those I don’t get to tonight and my favorite songs and bands that were the inspiration for the show including Halloween music in April. These next two weeks are gonna kick ass. I am gonna make Tucson miss me.

I am not the most articulate person when it comes to spontaneous talk, but my goal was to keep lost music in the airwaves and give airtime to bands that sound like old bands. I regularly crammed between 35-44 songs in each two-hour session. The music is the message in my book. I am proud that at any minute my show was on, there was music playing or coming fast. I admire DJs that can form a thesis and teach people about music, but I liked to let the vinyl fly. There was spontaneity for me in bringing in too many records and I loved winging it. It didn’t always work, but it was fun for me. I hope it was fun for you.

Here are some links to some recent reviews. I have been sweating to some rockers in celebration of Record Store Day. On the more serious side, the noir classic Night of the Hunter is this month’s Essential Cinema at The Loft.

The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years (1988)

The Runaways (2010)

Night of the Hunter (1955)

The Pit (1981)

Don’t forget Record Store Day is tomorrow.

Saturday will be a great day to get out and support your local record store.

In D.C., both Smash and Crooked Beat have stocked up for a busy day.

Here in Tucson, we put out a load of new stuff at Toxic Ranch as well.

That’s the scuttlebutt from this end.
