Ruby Slippers June 29 2018 ft. Cohosts Bravestation

Hey everybody

As announced last week, the Brothers Wilson from Bravestation will be in house this week cohosting the show.
That means, of course, that they were the programmers and have pulled together a list of songs that inspired them and influenced the music they came to create.

The list below is what they chose and as you know, an hour could not accommodate all of it.
The final list will be published on this blog after the broadcast.

Upside Down ... Bravestation *
Avalon ... Roxy Music
Just You and Me ... Bravestation *
The Middle ... Bravestation *
Sexual Healing ... Marvin Gaye
Deeper Than Oceans ... Bravestation *
A Simple Truth ...Wild Beasts
Happy Daze ...Bravestation *
Mad World ...Tears for Fears
Smile Like You Mean It ...The Killers

and what show would be complete without

Haven ... Bravestation*!

See you Friday my friends


What didn't make the cut this time:
Love Will Tear Us Apart ...Joy Division
My Number ... Foals
Climax... Usher
Sit next To me ....Foster The People
Live In The Moment ... Portugal. The Man
Nice For What ... Drake *

Ruby Slippers June 22 2018 7-8 pm

Hey everybody!

This is a very special edition of the show. One of my favorite bands, Bravestation, is dropping a new album on the 22nd  (Goddess) and we are lucky enough to have a member of the duo on the show to talk about the backstory behind the album and a few of the tracks!

Here is the playlist as it stands, but dependent on how long we chat, it is unlikely I will get too far. LOL


Some People...Smash Boom Pow *
Another Girl, Another Planet ... Screwed *
Ray of Love ... Bravestation *
Stay Wild...Bravestation *
Up for You ... Bravestation *
Reflections ... Lavendar Girl *
My Baby Better Be on Time ... Cats with Manners
Two Strangers ... Sea Wolf
Bleecker Street! Chase Me! ... Hologram Teen
Nerve ... Jenn Vix
Juice (Chromeo remix) ... Mercurius FM *
Crystal Mines ... CFCF *
Lax ... Kristin Hersh
Back Taxes and Anaphylaxis ... ISS

Thanks for listening and a special thanks to Bravestation for taking time out of their crazy schedule to talk with me.
