The Josh Blanchard Interview

Recorded at The Dehn Bar in downtown Salem, Oregon.

Gather ’round everybody for your next piece of Roughshod Podcandy™. Peter and I had a lovely time talking with Josh Blanchard of the band Coronation.

 

Coronation just released their new single, “Chemical Reaction,” that will be on their upcoming album “Silicon Days.” We play Chemical Reaction in the middle of the cast, and then play another single (unreleased!) “Heartwave” at the end. That’s right, he gave us an advance listen to their unreleased single! Thank you, Josh.

Covering the Troubadour Open Mic @ The Space Concert Club

 

Music recorded live at The Space Concert Club, commentary in Julie’s garage.

So, Peter and I were invited to host The Space’s Troubadour Open Mic last Wednesday. We jumped at the chance. It was fun! We enjoyed it! Very much! Have I used enough exclamation points to tell you that we had a good time? Yes! Ok! Well, the actual night was fun, but we had to do a lot of editing and ending up cutting all the live commentary and just left the performances. Peter and I just got together tonight and recorded the talking parts.

Will we record an open mic again? Probably not. At least not until we’ve got our shit together a little more. So PLEASE! I’ve been working on this one TOO MUCH and I just slapped it together. Please forgive if the transitions are a little stark. I’m tired and didn’t want to figure out the fade in/out effects tonight.

We’ll be back next week with just sitting down and talking to music buddies.

BUT. There’s some great performances on this by Mitchell Daily, Jess Tumolo, Colton Grizzlyman, Ashley Lute, Jocelyn Paige, Marc Horsejerk, and Vortex Remover. Please enjoy Peter and my learning experience.

#9 Spacing Out w/ Jocelyn Paige

Recorded Wednesday, October 4th at The Space Concert Club‘s Green Room

 

For those of you following along, Austin Rich has left the building. Austin is a busy guy with his Mid-Valley Mutations radio show on KMUZ, Friday nights at 10pm (tune in some time), online zine The Cherry Picker Zine, and he has a variety of his own podcasts including The Capital Couple. So, he has passed the torch to me, Julie, to carry on Roughshod Radio.  I hope I can do as good as job as he did. Thank you for all your work, Austin!

That being said, I introduce my new co-host, Peter Degroot. Peter has been in the Salem music scene for a long time. His current projects are Vortex Remover and The Startle Easilies, a new project with Julian Snow and Sam McBride.

 

On this episode, we meet in the green room at The Space Concert Club and talk about it with Jocelyn Paige, who is the machine behind new Salem group Brides. Brides have a new EP coming out October 29th, and will be celebrated at The Space on that date, which is also Jocelyn’s birthday.21992869_815735745252828_4190738907658202804_o (1)

The Julie Eaton Interview (#41)

Mid-Valley Mutations

podcast-coverThe Julie Eaton Interview (#41)

Breaking format slightly (not much, really), this week we pick the brain of Salem Weekly Music editor Julie Eaton, who is a Salem resident, musician, writer, and supporter of the art and culture of this town.  While we had been circling around the idea of collaborating on a show together, it was mostly a ploy to get her behind a mic so I could ask her about her connection to the town.  It isn’t often that you get to have someone who you can ask about what came before you, and in this case, I get to hear the music, too.  This is, obviously, part one of a nearly endless series.

This is pretty much a “locals only” episode, and moreso, less “experimental” than my usual fare.  But don’t let that scare you off, or even suggest that this is a “normal” episode.  In…
