iVoryTowerz Radio, Blue Edition

The underground podcast returns to form this week with an original program. And although much of this program has a strong summer vibe, we are still blue: so many shades of that color. For a variety of scheduling reasons related to vacations, business trips and summer in general, our regular radio series could not honor George Carlin when he died. And Carlin is definitely due a radio tribute. More importantly, any Carlin remembrance must of course be a bit blue. But to even out the mood, there's a bit of musicology tracing the roots of power pop back more than 40 years. Throw in some alt-country, new wave, punk, grunge, and heavy metal and you have the usual underground melange of sound. Light a candle if you must, but we hope this song mix produces a smile or two along the way too.
