Hey all you groovy ghouls and ghoulettes, it’s time to rock the pumpkin patch with your spooky pals at BalconyRadio.com. Join hands around the table and connect with us to some of the best Halloween music we could dig out of the grave. We got all the tunes that will rattle your chains and have you howling at the moon. Scoot over on the broom, it’s time to go trick or treating. (Safely, from six feet away.)
Lace up the Converse, it’s time to go old school with the Balcony Radio crew. We gathered some of the oldest head nodding beats of the 80s from both coasts for episode 17 of our hip hop show Deez Rhymes. Records are getting scratched, the bass on your system is getting challenged, and fire is getting spit. Are you ready for this?
Howdy, howdy, cowgirls and cowpokes! BalconyRadio is back for its 17th season!! Light ’em up, pour some drinks and snort whatever you got, BalconyRadio is ready to ride shotgun down the dusty paths of Americana. This time out on episode 17 of Blue Highway, we’re featuring the best and brightest of neo-traditional Country and Western music. Foot stompers, high lonesome twang, ladies done with your ass . . . the faces and voices are new, but the topics are old as rhinestone and nudie suits.
ANNNNND! we’re back!!! Hello students of music. Summer break is over and class is (virtually) in session. What better way to get back to the music than a show to get your school spirit going? We can’t think of one. Straighten out your pencils and your books, your classmates at Balcony Radio have Lesson 149 of the 101 Series on your schedule. For first period of the new 17th season, we’re playing all the best songs about school we could find. Get ready for AP Music. Don’t be tardy.
Balcony Radio is wrapping up another programming season in the best way possible: by playing music—a lot of music. Join us for episode ??? of X-Chromosome, our show dedicated to the women of rock/pop/soul/country and all genres between. This week, as in every time out, we focus on songs by women too cool for you, us, and anyone else in the room.
Plug in your T.V. and fix the tracking, a guy named Bob is on the screen tonight. Tune in for episode 16 of Time for Bob, our tribute to the words and music of a man named Mr. Dylan. This time out, we feature performances from a half-century of showing up on the tube. Straighten out the bunny ears, put down the remote and don’t burn the mashed potatoes, it’s time for the show.
The one thing we’ve learned during quarantine . . . you can tune in, turn on, and drop out anywhere. Hippie drug music sounds good in every room in the house! Enjoy tab #16 of This Pill Makes You Small, our tribute to the Summer of Love. In this episode, your hosts socially distance themselves by hovering six feet off the ground. Fill whatever you got with whatever you got, it’s time to bail on this dimension.
Time to get in the ol’ way back machine with your pals at Balcony Radio. This time out, we set our sights on 1991 . . .the year of Nirvana, Using Your Illusion, and heading out in the great wide open. Join us for Lesson 148 of the 101 Series, as we sample tunes turning 30(!) this year. Thirty! Man . . .
Once upon a time a radio format was created to counter the screaming, puking, gutteral sounds of AM radio, heavy formatting and repetitive 2 minute songs. It was Free Form radio and it put personality into each program by giving the power to the DJ. For epsiode 16 of our tribute to said format the power is put into each of your host’s hands. We each pick half the show and mix it together in a tasty bouillabaisse. It could get weird so be ready for some crazy twists and turns. We’re very inspired.
Anyone who thought jazz and swing were dead are badly mistaken. Here at Balcony Radio, we undertook a little mission and went out and found some killer contemporary music you can hold a drink and a smoke to. It’s episode 16 of Swingtime and we are dialed into the Now, baby. We got the tunes to soundtrack a happening night at our place . . . music you’ll want to get within six feet of.
