Who knew that anything good could come of Winter... but yeah! Some damn cool music was released in the early months of 2019. I collected some of it for you... check out, “The Cutting Edge - Winter 2019”
One of the most misunderstood parts of a song is the bridge. Some of the descriptions on the internet are pretty funny... the long piano part at the end of Layla by Derek and the Dominos is not a bridge. A beautiful part, sure. Not a bridge. It’s also not “that bit between the verse and chorus... just filling time before getting to the good part... occasionally done so perfectly it even makes the chorus disappointing”... also not a bridge. And not a very good prechorus either, sounds like... There’s a definite art to good bridge writing. Check this show out for more and some great examples of amazing bridges...

Music That Shaped Rock & Roll - "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars"
Some of the best albums of all time have pioneered new ideas, some advanced new sounds, others new personalities... some feature a new style of writing... of creativity... some are incredibly unique... some border on genius... there are few that can lay claim to all of the above, BUT! this album definitely covers all the bases! Catch this show on Green Beans, Mushroom Soup & Strawberry Ice Cream... the 2nd instalment of “Music that Shaped Rock & Roll” where we’re featuring the iconic album, 1972’s “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars” (also in the running for longest album title I’d think)...
Wow! Who knew there'd be so many more hits? So many more years? So many more iconic albums... from the Rolling Stones... check out the best from the albums, "Black and Blue"... their biggest album ever, "Some Girls", "Emotional Rescue", "Tattoo You", "Undercover" and "Dirty Work"... ten more years of the Stones, from 1976 to 1986!
Follow the Rolling Stones down into their darkest times... the drugs... the ever widening chasm between Mick and Keith... and... some of the best rock and roll songs ever written! The albums, "Let it Bleed", "Sticky Fingers" (and its one of a kind album cover), the birth of the tongue logo, maybe the best Stone album ever, "Exile on Main Street" and "Goats Head Soup"!
Green Beans, Mushroom Soup, & Strawberry Ice Cream_with your host Marc Gladstone
It's called Green Beans, Mushroom Soup & Strawberry Ice Cream. What the hell does that even mean!? It means I can play whatever the f..k I want to... just like radio used to do when it was real. Before it was all politics. When it wasn't owned by record companies who forced it to do their bidding. Real radio.
