Gather ’round all working people, it’s time to clock out for a well earned three day weekend. Let Balcony Radio soundtrack your days off with our Annual Labor Day Show. In this episode, we spin two dozen of the best rock, pop, country and soul songs about w-o-r-k. Stick it to The Man and play songs that keep workin’ long past 9 to 5.
Hello, we love you, listen to our show. We’re still on hiatus, but the music never stops. Break on through to the past with a classic Balcony Radio broadcast. This week, we open up the best of The Doors. We’ve got the best live, in studio, and postmortem recordings of L.A.’s house band. Grab a jug of wine and a fist full of peyote, you need to catch up.
Alright alright alriiiiiiiiiiiiiight, you know what time it is. The mic is on, the turntable is spinning, the hype man has a towel on his shoulder and you just got handled a water bottle. It’s time for some serious fucking rhymes, son. In episode 9 of Deez Rhymes, we rock your dome with two dozen beats good enough to play during a blunt session that would make a Rasta blush. Pour one out and light one up, we got the party soundtracked.
Gather ’round for another quarantinecast as we end season 15 of Balcony Radio. This week, it’s time for the ladies to take over with the X Chromosome show. In this episode, we bounce around time and space with a genreless program featuring some of the coolest women of the last century. Strap in, even though you’ll never be ready for all this.
Hello, students. Time to gas up the Woody, break out the Sex Wax and pack up the cooler with beverages. The weather is getting warmer and the waves are getting higher so it’s time for some sun and sand in your sandwiches. Lesson 50 of the 101 Series says it’s “Surf’s Up!” – we get out of the classroom and on the road to beaches around the world – or maybe right down the 101 Freeway – and listen to lots of twangy guitar. Get your sunscreen and zinc oxide and hop in the back. Time to use some vacation time!
It’s a couple months later than usual, but who cares . . . Baseball is back this weekend to provide a little bit of sunshine during this pandemic-era terribleness. To celebrate the (truncated) season, we’ve got a couple dozen of the best country, rock, pop, and r&b songs about baseball for you to do the wave to at home. This episode was recorded a few years ago, but the songs are as timeless as the game itself. Let’s play two. Choke up. Get ready for one high and inside.
The great thing about being the greatest songwriter ever is that your friends want to sing along. The second best thing: all your friends are super famous and awesome. In this week’s episode of Time For Bob, we let Mr. Dylan share the stage with some of your favorites. Everyone here is on a first name basis: Bob, Joan, Tom, Bruuuuuuuce, Van, Willie, Johnny. You know, the crew too cool for you.
Certain places where time, energy and good drugs meet are magical. One of those spots was a certain zip code in the hills above Hollywood from 1965-1975. In Lesson ??? of the infinite 101 Series, we take a geography lesson with the best music of Laurel Canyon. Harmonize with the wind and the trees and the bees landing on the flowers. (And don’t pay attention to the scruffy hippies coming up the driveway . . .)
It’s time to celebrate a certain someone’s 244th birthday. Despite everything going on in the 50 states, July 4th is still happening . . . Join your fellow Americans at BalconyRadio.com for a show about the person steering the freedom ship: el presidente. In honor of the holiday, tune in to a classic Balcony Radio is episode we call “Songs About the President.” We pay tribute to Resident #1 and a few of the people who’ve tried to kill him….skip the primaries, drop out of the electoral college, light up a sparkler and enjoy the show.
Hey there . . . why don’t you lie back and let Balcony Radio take the wheel for a couple hours. It’s time for another episode of The FreeSpace, our anti-genre show where the DJ’s pick the songs. We’ve got rock, pop, soul, r&b, country and everything high and inbetween to fill up your ear holes. Let us plug you up good. (Hey-o.)
