Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 29 (August 14, 2022): Around the World in 29 Songs
Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 29 (August 14, 2022): Around the World in 29 Songs
This Week’s Theme: Around the World in 29 Songs As I wrote one year ago in Radio Faux Show Volume 1, Number 25 – almost every Faux Show includes one of my favorite mini-themes, Let’s Take a Trip Around the World. My fondest memories of my time as a deejay 30+ years ago include discovering music from other countries. From a purely musical perspective, the different instrumentation, rhythms,…

Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 28 (August 7, 2022): Music From 1972 (Part Two)
Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 28 (August 7, 2022): Music From 1972 (Part Two)
This Week’s Theme: 50th Anniversary – 1972 (Part Two) Last week’s Faux Show presented twenty-nine albums from 1972, and the list was a who’s who of artists and albums that present some of the highlights of the rock and roll era. Here’s the thing, though. This week’s show may be an even better list of artists and albums. There is no denying that last week’s show included iconic rock and pop…

Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 27 (July 31, 2022): Music From 1972 (Part One)
Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 27 (July 31, 2022): Music From 1972 (Part One)
This Week’s Theme: 50th Anniversary – 1972 (Part One) There are many candidates for Best Year in Music or Most Influential Year in Music. Arguments can be made for almost any year in the ‘60s or ‘70s, depending on what sort of music is being discussed. The early ‘80s are full of important years, and even the ‘90s have some contenders. If you are old school, there are arguments for years in the…

Radio Faux Show Blog One Year Anniversary (July 27, 2022): A Look Back
Radio Faux Show Blog One Year Anniversary (July 27, 2022): A Look Back
A Faux Show Bonus The Radio Faux Show began as a playlist in March 2021. It was originally a way for me to discover new music, and by the summer of 2021 had evolved into the combination blog/playlist it has now become. July 27, 2022 marks the one-year anniversary of that first blog post. In honor of that anniversary, I have put together this bonus Faux Show retrospective of some of my favorite…

Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 26 (July 24, 2022): Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Snubs Part Two (Personal Selections)
Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 26 (July 24, 2022): Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Snubs Part Two (Personal Selections)
This Week’s Theme: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Snubs Part Two (Personal Selections) The theme of Radio Faux Show Volume 1, Number 35 was Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Snubs. That was a year ago, and there is now a new year of members being inducted. That means it is time to look once again at which artists have been snubbed from induction. Last week’s show was focused on female snubs. This week’s…

Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 25 (July 17, 2022): Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Snubs Part One (Female Artists)
Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 25 (July 17, 2022): Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Snubs Part One (Female Artists)
This Week’s Theme: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Snubs Part One (Female Artists) The theme of Radio Faux Show Volume 1, Number 35 was Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Snubs. Looking back at it now, I stand by everything I said and feel that it was a pretty well thought out argument against the discriminatory practices of their election committee. Now that the 2022 Rock Hall inductees have been announced,…

Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 24 (July 10, 2022): Best of 2022 (So Far)
This Week’s Theme: Best of 2022 (So Far) This week’s Faux Show is a classic countdown list. I have included several different Best of the Year selections followed by a Top 10 albums countdown. These are all albums released through June, 2022. At the end of the year I will create a final Best of the Year show with a Top 20 albums list, so it will be interesting to see how many of these early…

Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 22 (June 26, 2022): Was It A Top 40 Hit?
Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 22 (June 26, 2022): Was It A Top 40 Hit?
This Week’s Theme: Was It A Top 40 Hit? My move back into fully developed Faux Shows started last week, after a few months of simpler shows, with a theme that used my favorite music reference – Joel Whitburn’s Billboard Book of Top 40 Hits. I enjoyed that research so much that this week and next week will also feature themes based on that book. This week’s theme is a sort of trivia game. I’ve…

Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 21 (June 19, 2022): Country Crossover Hits
Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 21 (June 19, 2022): Country Crossover Hits
This Week’s Theme: Country Crossover Hits It has been a while since I have put together a fully-formed Faux Show, but this week sees the return to the research and thematic elements that led me to start doing this blog in the first place. The shows will start to be weekly again, and will cover topics that demand research and discussion, starting with this week’s theme of Country Music crossover…

Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 20 (June 5, 2022): Random Artists A-Z
Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 20 (June 5, 2022): Random Artists A-Z
This Week’s Theme: Random Artists A-Z The themes of the Faux Shows during the last couple of months have been very simple, the posts have been very short, and the shows have been bi-weekly. This week’s theme is a random selection of songs from artists alphabetized A to Z. To make it a little more challenging, I only included artists with double-lettered names, such as selecting Herbie Hancock…

This Week’s Theme: Recently Listened To As I mentioned last week, the themes of the Faux Shows are going to be less complex for a while and require a lot less research. The shows are also going to be bi-weekly for a while, so the next show will drop on June 5. This week’s show is a collection of songs that I have listened to over the last few weeks.

This Week’s Theme: Better Late Than Never As I mentioned last week, the next few Faux Shows are going to have a lot less content due to constraints on my time. The themes of the shows are going to be less complex for a while and require a lot less research. The shows are also going to be bi-weekly for a while, so the next show will drop on May 22. This week’s show is a collection of songs by…

Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 16 (April 17, 2022): 10-Year Anniversary
Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 16 (April 17, 2022): 10-Year Anniversary
This Week’s Theme: 10-Year Anniversary (Music from 2012) I paid very little attention to new music in 2012. There are many reasons for this, and I don’t feel guilty about it, but I’m always working to fill in the gaps in my musical knowledge. For this reason, it was interesting to go back ten years and listen to the music of 2012. Unfortunately, I quickly found that a lot of the most popular…

Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 15 (April 10, 2022): Bassist Richard Davis
Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 15 (April 10, 2022): Bassist Richard Davis
This Week’s Theme: Bassist Richard Davis One of my favorite themes is a celebration of the often overlooked, highly influential session musicians and other background figures that helped create the music of the 20th century. Stars get all of the recognition, but most of them can not make the music they are known for without the background support of those musicians who arrange, perform, and…

Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 14 (April 3, 2022): New Music
Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 14 (April 3, 2022): New Music
This Week’s Theme: New Music Due to the themes I’ve selected over the last few weeks, there has been very little new music on the Faux Show for a while. For that reason, this week’s theme is New Music. All songs are from 2022, and cover a variety of genres. Welcome to Radio Faux Show Volume 2, Number 14. First things first – click a link to start listening and then come back to read about this…
