Transmission 12812

This was a regular scene in my bedroom in 1972 - listening to my favorite new music and dreaming that Bridget was there with me! Fast forward 40 years and I'm still dreaming and always listening - here are a few of my favorite latest things from Gary Clark Jr., Jack White, Soundgarden. Green Day, Bruce Springsteen,  Bonnie Raitt, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Ulver, Bruno Mars, Jimmy Cliff, The Orb with Lee "Scratch" Perry, Jaribu Afrobeat Arkestra, Simian Mobile Disco, School Of Seven Bells, How To Destroy Monsters and Hot Chip!

RWF Rewind

Adding new and old Christmas Music into The Archives is an around-the-year obsession, as is the construction of the Annual RFW Christmas Show. I have been making these Holiday Mixes for friends and family for decades and now you are a part of that disingished group of deviant elves.

In case you have missed a few of the earlier Holiday Transmissions, I'll post one of these ghosts of Christmas' past each day - culminating on Saturday with the gifting of the 2012 Yuletide Spectacular!

Running on instinct - primal - wet - as if we were...(teddybears?). Doing it puppy style like bunnys with The Tubes, ZZ Top, Nine Inch Nails, Adam & The Ants, Boards Of Canada, Adrian Belew, Green Day, Dead Kennedys, Babyshambles, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Julian Cope and Prince!

Change is inevitable - sometimes it is a choice, often it is thrust upon us and in most cases we are swept along in it's powerful current. Climb up and be changed by Sam Cooke, Tom Waits, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Stephen Stills, Peter Wolf, The Black Seeds, Jimi Hendrix with Buddy Miles, Y&T, Vains Of Jenna, Chis Harvey Trio, Paul McCartney, The Thrills, John Fox & The Maths, The Doors and The Who!

Transmission 12412

It never failed, whenever I braved the floor in my concert past - I inevitably had in front of me the tall guy with the big afro or the short stocky sweaty guy with his crazed breast-bearing fist-pumping girlfriend on his shoulders. But in this case, it's worth getting real close to hear Neil Young & Crazy Horse, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant, Cream, The Rolling Stones and King Crimson!

Transmission 12212

Hitting the floor with a good partner is exciting, fun, sexy and stimulating - but every now and again it's cool to summon up your inner-Travolta and pull a few solo moves. Either way, Dance to the beat of David Bowie, Talking Heads, Axiom Funk, Roxy Music, Madonna, The Rolling Stones, Cristina, Donna Summer, Cornelius and !!! - turn this up!

*C.J. Wohlman is caught in the act of  stealing the scene with the double-bump on the good-foot and a series of other  feats of  rhythym and dexterity at a 2011 wedding in Boston. If he was eighteen (instead of 12 at the time), he could have left with the bridesmaid of his choice.
