So, request for a show in the next week or two. Tell me a band that a lot of people you know love that you can't stand, and why you can't stand them. Doesn't even have to be current. The more people give me bands and/or songs, the more I'll have to put in the show that isn't Nickelback. Ha ha! Use the email address or my Twitter handle, both of which I tell you in the episode. Anyway, here's a show.

It's been a hot minute since I've done a scene show, so here's what you need to know in advance. This show runs longer than our normal shows, but is exclusively focused towards one specific subgenre of music, and in this case, the scene is yacht rock. I talk a bunch, explaining some of the history, some of the players and some of the defining characteristics of the scene, and try and give you an overview of what it's all about.

It's a bit of a history lesson filled with lots of great songs, and should give you everything you need to know to engage in a conversation focusing on this weird offshoot of soft rock / adult-oriented rock from the late 70s and early 80s. 

If that doesn't not your speed, just come back next week and we'll have returned to our usual musical mayhem, but if you'd like a bit of music history, and the answers to a thousand and one trivia questions, stick around, and let's talk about yacht rock, also semi-inaccurately called "the West Coast Sound."

These episodes are the most fun if you don't look at the setlist until after the show, by the by. So get your admiral's cap, pour yourself a tropical drink and let the wind flow through your hair. (For you bastards who still have hair...)
