Gather round, friends and neighbors . . . ol’ Balcony Radio has come down from the hills with two dozen of the deepest cuts we could carry. In this weeks installment of Found Gems, we spit shine songs you don’t know by big stars you know by first name. No hits, please. Time to get 24 carat snobby.
This quarantine has got us feeling a serious case of live music withdrawals. It’s been months since anyone at Balcony Radio has gotten their faces rocked off in person. We’re gonna have to make do with virtual face ripping-off in this episode of our live music show From the Board. This time out, we knock you on your socially distant asses with some of the best concert performances we could find. Stay home, wear your mask, and let Balcony Radio help you with your live music needs.
Help us as we join together both the Roth and Hagar eras to praise him: EVH. Many people have picked up the guitar, but few pushed at its boundaries like one Mr. Edward Van Halen. It’s Lesson 145 of the 101 Series, and this time out we’re playing the tastiest licks tapped out over multiple generations of rock kick-assery. From the humble streets of Pasadena, to arenas everywhere, spark one up for Eddie. Turn this up to 11, let the neighbors know about it.
Hey all you groovy ghouls and ghoulettes, it’s time to rock the pumpkin patch with your spooky pals at BalconyRadio.com.

Scoot over on the broom, it’s time to go trick or treating. (Safely, from six feet away.)
Time for another peak over the shoulders of giants. Join Balcony Radio for our tribute to works in progress, Embryonic.

Hello out there you cats and kittens, it’s time to do a little musical mining with your partners at BalconyRadio.com. This week, we get out the pick and shovel and dig deep into crates for some of the best obscure singer-songwriter tunes for this week’s episode of Dusty Gems. This show is dedicated to finding the best music you’ve never heard and we’ve located two dozen 24 carats obscurities for you to oooh and aahh over.
It’s time to get bompin’ in the city of Compton. Light up in the back seat of our 6-4 and get ready to bounce to the best of West Coast hip hop. Balcony Radio is in the house with our testament to big beats called Deez Rhymes. We’re here to curate two dozen of the dopest tracks that will rattle the streets of L.A., the Bay, the beach, the house party next door, and your dome. Get your crew together, it’s time.
It’s been 26 years since Woodstock ’94 and the mud has finally been completely washed off . . . time to celebrate a time when people could stand near each other.

Join Balcony Radio and 1/2 million of your closest friends in the mud to hear two dozen of the best tracks over one long weekend upstate. Leave your car on the turnpike, it’ll still be there Monday.
Time to rev up the ol’ engine for a new season of Balcony Radio. As always, we start by traveling down the dustier roads of Americana with our country music show Blue Highway.

The guitars are tuned, the flannel is buttoned, joints are rolled, the tattoo ink is dry . . . get ready for the real music.
