December 25th, 2013…the Holiday Break Special!

santa-claus-conquers-the-martians-16

It’s prime holiday time, listeners! Regardless of what holiday traditions you adhere to, I wish you well.

I decided I’d take a little break, but worry not, I still have something for you this week. I thought I’d stray from the format and bring you some songs that I either discovered or have stuck with me this year. Some of these songs just came out, I’ve just heard, or I can’t stop hearing…listening..you get the picture. Obviously, there are still songs I can think of that should have made the cut but you’ll hear them from me eventually, I’m sure. I understand the mix is kind of odd, but I see it more of a showcase; so forgive the rough transitions!

It’s the middle of the week again. Half way through the common man’s work week…here’s the newest episode of Blind Date to help you unwind.

Today’s guest is DJ Corney, co-founder of Wool Shop. Wool Shop is an environmentally friendly sweater company who specialize in natural dyes, stationed in Cincinnati. According to the creators themselves..

“Wool Shop works with farms and mills directly to ensure the most responsible processes are being used in the creation of our wool – from the life quality of the sheep to the energy used to run the mill to the dyes used in our color palette.  Our luxury yarn is dyed with only the goods given to us by mother nature – plants, roots, and flowers – and is grown, processed, spun, dyed, and handmade in the U.S. ”

To learn more about Wool Shop, visit shopwoolshop.com. And as always, there’s a bit of insider info you can get your hands on by listening to the interview.

One last item of business…in today’s episode I play a track from Frog Eye’s lastest album ( Carey’s Cold Spring). I believe I said coming out soon…CORRECTION, is out NOW via bandcamp. You can find it at frogeyesmusic.bandcamp.com.

Happy listening!

I’ve been out walking…

Just wanted to drop a line. I’ve been talking to lots of interesting people, and many more are lined up. I’ve also seen, heard, experienced, what have you, some awesome art both locally and not so locally.

Next week on Blind Date, I share words with one half of a new environmentally friendly sweater company stationed in Cincinnati. Also as a special introduction, a small preview of the new Frog Eye’s album Carey’s Cold Spring. If you’ve never heard of Frog Eyes or Blackout Beach, get on it! Carey Mercer is one of the most interesting musicians recording these days. He definitely has had an effect on me. To figure out why, and more, stay tuned for Wednesdays episode!!

Till then.
