So this is it Part 2 of the 80's Soundtrack Podcasts. Can't say it hasn't been fun, cause honestly its been a blast. So many great movies and songs, they just don't do it like that anymore. Anyway this Episode focuses on the seedier or under belly of 80's music. Lots of Punk influence and lots of stuff that would go on to influence punk and other genres we enjoy today. Hope you enjoy as much as I enjoyed putting it all together for you ! Cheers ~ Phil

Back again with another episode. I always rant about how awesome the 80's were in terms of music and I am here to prove it again! The ony thing better than movies from the 80's were the soundtracks that came with them. They both were the vehicle for much of our pop culture today. So today is Part 1 of a 2 Part Podcast, this is The Best of The 80's Soundtrack Songs You Wish You could Forget! No matter how long it's been or how wicked cheesy these songs are they are ingrained in our hearts, souls and minds for life.. Hope you enjoy, next show will be the 80's "Underground" Soundtrack songs.

So it's been about 8 months, figured it was high time I get a new show together. With the world going to Hell in a Hand Basket figured now would be a good time to roll out some Ska tunes and remind everybody to step back, take a deep breath and just Simmer Down. 

Until next time everyone stay cool and just be kind to one another.

It is the end of 2015 and Christmas is upon us again, but its a different time from when I was a child. The world has become a dark and dangerous place. Governments lie, People lie, Wars are fought in the name of business and people bought, people die and people are rebuilt. Our technological advances are only being outpaced by our explosive population growth. This may be our last Christmas or this may be our awakening. No matter what I think the music is appropriate for the times we live in.

May you find what makes you happiest and rejoice in it !

Until next time ~ Phil

In my late teens or early 20's I became friends with a group of guys who were known as The Lager Lads out of Windsor Ontario Canada. In fact one of my longest known friends wnet on to become their drummer. As a result of this friendship of sorts I was introduced to a ton of new music, Oi! Music. In the form of The Business, The Gonads, Sham 69, The Angelic Upstarts, The Antiheros, The Herberts and countless others. It was during this time I developed a love and appreciation for Oi! Music and that has stuck with me until today, some 20 years later. Let me say I am by no means a racist,! Hell I am not even a skinhead, but I do love some good kick ass Rock n Roll and I can appreciate the roots of Oi! Music and what it stands for. So what I bring to you today is some mostly modern Oi! Tunes and there are a lot of them! To the best of my knowledge all these bands are pretty traditional, but if I am wrong oh well don't listen. I am not here for the politics I am here to deliver good music. If you can't get past that maybe you got the wrong guy. Until next trip around the sun enjoi!

Thanks for listening & Cheers ~ Phil

So when I was a young my buddies and myself spent most of the summer looking for the special someone. At the end of the summer most folks their special someone would go back home or whatever and you would end up sad and miserable until school started back up. This I am sure is a common theme throughout the years for many people. Ultimately it has led me to believe that "The Summer of Love" is a lie, absolute bullshit is its purist form. Though it has given us some spectacular Hard Rock and Hair Metal Ballads to reflect upon on, or in some instances cry to. These tunes remind me of a time when I was young and carefree, for other they may bring some sadness. Until next month keep chasing the dream!

Well this month I took a jump into the past, into my roots if you will. Growing up I was most certainly a nerd and along with being a nerd I was a massive fan of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition. Along with every good AD&D Addiction comes a profound love of Heavy Metal, as time wore on there came to be known a sub genre known as fantasy or power metal.

So what I have thrown together for you all this monthis a kick ass compendium of Heavy Metal from yesterday and today from across the genres, with one commonality between them. Fantasy themes; Mythical creatures, Swords, Armor, Wizards and Adventure. Hope you enjoy this episode and I hope it brings you back to that place where you long to be once again !

This episode we look at Roots, or depending what you call it American Roots or Roots Revival. It's a pretty new genre to me, but I find I love it a lot. It seems to transcend genres and stardom its music for the people by the people. I am not going to get that into it, as I am just starting to develop a feel for this scene. But close your mouths and open you ears and minds. This stuff is awesome!

Having been born in the 1970, 80's music is my bitch. I will take it in any form, some I enjoy more than others but Heavy Metal and New Wave were 2 of the paths I walked for a long while. Heavy Metal was the music I loved, but New Wave and Post Punk were what all of the women I fawned over seemed to most enjoy. So being a 'man' of superb taste in music but lacking the ability to properly converse with women, I became quite adept with something which has came to be known as "The Mix Tape". The whiskey of the music world if you will. When you needed to say something, but just didn't have the balls to say it on your own. Always hoping the right combination of tunes would find me in a favorable position with said woman.. I don't think it ever worked, but I always tried! So what you have here is the first Counter Culture Mix Tape. Side A is the New Wave side and Side B is Metal Ballads. For better for worse I am sure this is going to drag up some memories better left forgotten. But Hey it is almost Valentines Day, maybe this year the mix tape will work for you?

Hope you enjoy the stroll down memory lane ~Phil
