Brian B. (Mr. Kind) & Mad Noise

What a great show … or should I say “What an amazing set of shows.” Late Night with Bubbles didn’t show up … again … which meant that instead of running my show for 2 hours …. I had 4 hours at my disposal. Thus when my show would have ended … I gave Mad Noise the opportunity to keep playing. To which they responded, “Give us 10 minutes to go buy beer … and we’ll play for another 2 hours!!!”

We want to make SF a music industry hub?
Even if we don’t like EDM we need to learn from their ability to captivate fans.
• EDM is great at drawing large numbers of fans, marketing, promoting, & making money
Our goal is to know the best industry people in SF and recommend them regularly.
• Is there an app for this? Should there be?
Discover the best way to leverage technology for CD releases.
• How can you leverage social media to give it away for free?
• Does this technology already exist?
• What would make a bands CD release interesting enough for a technology blog?
Is there a need in SF for tastemakers? Could we be those tastemakers?
• Do we want to break a band? Do we want to host shows?
I have 3 music sites. Perhaps we can all start our taste-making from the third:
• – (let me know if you want to be a blogger, I’ll make it so!!!)
And MORE!!!

Grand Lake Islands & Travis Hayes

Generally speaking SF Intercom radio is all local all the time. However … when a great band (Grand Lake Islands) from a beautiful city (Portland, Or.) reaches out to me because they’re playing a show in our amazing city (San Francisco) … I GOTTA PUT THEM ON THE AIR!!!

It was an amazing show that opened with Grand Lake Islands and closed with Travis Hayes Busse. If you listen to the entire podcast … you’ll hear a great improve song in the middle by Bob. I put him on the spot to rage on the drums … he did (twice) … and thus created a masterpiece he titled “Diapers for Grandpa.”

The fun continued with Travis Hayes Busse, normally backed by a full band, however … more recently Travis has been playing a lot of shows by himself. His voice, passion and soul are so amazing and full he can fill the entire station with his energy alone! Listen to the show, I think you’re going to love what we created.



Kiwi Time & Sweetwater Black

Some of of my shows are as simple as me and my playlist and some shows require a lot of set-up. This one ran the full spectrum. it featured me on my iPad, Kiwi Time on the 4 studio mics and Sweetwater Black with a major set-up in the lobby! Their elaborate set-up helped me realize I have no idea how to mic a full band. Luckily, Michael Scanland from Sweetwater Black knows his wires … and he mic’d his entire band utilizing a few amps, minimal wires and worked magic with the studios 4 microphone jacks.

One day at Treasure Island definitely wasn’t enough … so on Sunday when I should have been playing local bay area music I decided to play one more day of electronic music. Attached is the playlist of bands and EDM DJs that were at Treasure Island Music Festival.

I will never be a lead singer in a rock band … but sometimes hosting the SF Intercom show on Mutiny Radio feels pretty rock star. It’s hard to explain how much fun it is to sit in the studio while musicians blast me out of my chair with their amazing skills. This Sunday the show was blessed to have Electric Strawberry then Frankie Boots And The County Line live in the studio.



Liz and I went to Hardly Strictly Bluegrass on Sunday before my show. The problem is … we were having so much fun that I didn’t leave early enough to get to my show on time. THUS … please skip the first hour of this show and only listen to the last hour.



My friend Liz and I started an epic set list designed to rock your pants off. She helped set the foundation for crazy … but had to leave due to having tons of homework due the next day. This was unfortunate … but the good news was that my friend David Colón showed up and helped me keep the intensity of the show from dying. We rocked for 2 hours …
