Aired January 7th, 2010 from 10-11pm

NOTE:::: Please forgive the giggle fest during the first airbreak…me and Ms. Calamity Janie of Revenge of the Handlebar Mustache had a bit of silly fun. There is one thing though that we speak of that is quite an important KDVS announcement – that topic of KDVS’ annual fundraiser. The dates are set, April 19th – 25th, and KDVS DJs all around are prepping for this shin-dig. I think Ms. Janie & I might plan some crazy shenanigans for our fundraiser shows this year. Check back in the upcoming months for more details.

**She -Roll On- Outta Reach LP Causeway Records (New Reissue)
Rockin’ Sacramento girl group from the ‘70s. Its funny how folks keep saying how hard it is to find information on this band – yet I found a pretty worked out article at Answers.com regarding this group's history. Not sure how correct all the details are, though if you are curious, check here to read it.
**Ty Segall -Can’t Talk To You- Horn The Unicorn LP HBSP-2X Records (2009)
**Mirrors -Shirley- Something That Would Never Do LP Violet Times / Hovercraft Records (2009)
**Dan Melchior’s Broke Revue -Girl On Auotpilot- & -Toledo- O’ Clouds Unfold! 2xLP Hook or Crook Records (2009)

I’m very excited by this recent release by Dan Melchior. This material was recorded sometime back and planned for release by another label – though that project got hung up for one reason or another and sat dormant for a while. Hook or Crook recently took the reins to get this out, though unfortunately there's been some drama which may still be effecting the availability of this release – if you can, get your hands on it - definitely worthwhile.
**The Rebel -Arabian Knights- Northern Rock Bear Weird Vegetable LP Sacred Bones Records (2008)
**Shearing Pinx -Battery Born- Weaponry LP Divorce Records (2009)
**Meercaz -Fan of A Daze- S/T LP Tic Tac Totally Records (2009)

Great heavy track from this Portland outfit. For more information check TicTacTotally.com.
**Lili Z. –The Scale of Sensation- The Two of Us LP In the Red Records (2008)
**el-g -last track- Tout Ploie LP S-S Records (2009)

**Accident Du Travail -Conference #2- Self-titled LP Bruit Direct Disques (2009)
At the right speed this time around. For more information check Bruit-Direct.org.
**Agent Side Grinder -5-008-119- The Transatlantic Tape Project LP Enfant Terrible Records (2009)

Elisa Rocket programmed this awesome set with a few others from the Rocket Clan. Unfortunately Elisa is not on the air this quarter. She has gone abroad. Very devastating for KDVS – though knowing Elisa, she won’t be able to stay away to long.

Relief for Haitians

This blog is typically devoted to music radio programming, but certain events and efforts deserve press all around.

As most now know, the people of Haiti are under serious distress due to an earthquake that occurred late Tuesday afternoon. A friend recently informed me of three groups that are working to bring relief to Haitians:

National Nurses United

"More than 1,500 registered nurses from across the U.S. have responded in less than one day to the call by the nation’s largest organization of registered nurses for volunteers to provide assistance to residents of earthquake devastated Haiti — leading the RNs to now issue an urgent appeal for the public to support these efforts with donations of funds to support travel costs and medical supplies on their upcoming emergency nursing mission.

Details are still being worked out, but those able to support the efforts of these nurses can get involved via:

Support the RNRN/NNU disaster relief effort in Haiti by sending checks c/o

California Nurses Foundation
2000 Franklin St.
Oakland, CA 94612

Charitable contributions will be used to pay for travel/related costs and medical supplies for volunteer RNs on their emergency nursing mission in Haiti."


Mercy Corps

"Mercy Corps is deploying an emergency response team to the island nation...Families need your help -- food, shelter and other supplies -- in the aftermath of the worst disaster to strike the region in years."


Children's Hope

"Three of the major centers of our humanitarian work in Haiti, centered in PAP, are still not responsive and we are very concerned for the children and families
...We are sending emergency funds starting tomorrow, and then as soon as pledges come in, since the need is urgent. We also really need to raise shipping money for the supplies already donated by a local hospital here (Marshall Hospital of Placerville [CA]) to send these supplies to Haiti. If you pledge, please remember to then send the check to Children's Hope. But please pledge now, so we can get new medicines ordered now, and help on the way.

Children's Hope
3025 A Cambridge Road
Cameron Park, CA 95682"


If you can help, please do so.
