Hard to believe it's been almost a decade since the first modcast away back in May of 2006! The world is a smaller place than it was when I kicked this thing off, and I like to think a better place because of it. Joining me to celebrate and commiserate the end of Mad Men is frequent mod world guest host Ken from The Shingles. That's right this whole show is focused on mid-century music in the tradition of Mad Men. Few programs have ever used music so effectively as Matt Weiner did on Mad Men. The music did more than just date the show. It was more than period piece set decoration. The music on Mad Men was like a whole other character with all the emotion and plot direction that goes with such. Not all the songs here were featured on the show, though quite a few of them were. But they are definitely songs you could have imagined, and maybe wished had been on the show.

If you asked me to DJ your dance party you'd get something kinda like this -- a whole set of floor filling, toe tapping, blistering rug cutters. I'll keep the chat to a minimum and let you just dig the deep grooves. Get to steppin'!

Everybody likes a good compilation album. This week I'm highlighting a bunch of really great 80s comps from power pop to mod to punk. Back in the 80s when finding good music took more than a Google search and mouse click, compilation albums could help turn you on to new and cool sounds. I remember finding the 20 Of Another Kind Vol. 2 album which had tracks from The Jam and Purple Hearts. At least half of the other bands on the album I'd never heard of before, but I bought it in the hopes of finding new mod friendly tunes. I bought a lot of compilations back then, and all of the records represented on this week's show were ones that I bought myself between 1980-1990, and played the hell out of them for years afterwards. I'm hoping to highlight some lesser known things, or some things that are otherwise hard to come by, so you may not be hearing a lot of your own favorites. Speaking of which, if you had a favorite compilation back in the day, drop me a line on the show's Facebook page and let me know what it was.

Zoinks! Keep an on your cereal bowl kids, I'm taking aim at a bygone Saturday morning tradition and planning to blow it away. I would have gotten away with it too, if it hadn't been for those meddling kids and their damn dog. Mod powers activate. Form of diamond geezer, shape of an aging ace...

This week on the modcast I'm paying to tribute to some not so living legends. At least not living anymore. Sadly all these folks have passed on, but they've left behind musical legacies that have impacted and changed music forever. RIP.

Modcasts like this one don't come along very often. Only every week or so as I get 'em produced! This week is exception, including all the professional production standards, great music, and as one modcast critic it put it "a voice never meant for radio." With an endorsement like that I know you won't waste anytime checking this week's offerings from the fine folks listed below.

This modcast is sizzling with soul. I'm still trying to recover from that heartbreaking loss the Seahawks suffered in the final seconds of the Sueprbowl last week. And, really the only way to get out of a funk like I've been in is ... well with something funky. So here it is, funkified for your pleasure.

This week I turn on the way back machine and head back to the punk frontier of the late 70s and early 80s. Why is that? Well I just finished reading the completely fantastic Clothes Clothes Clothes Music Music Music Boys Boys Boys. It's the memoir of Slits guitarist Viv Albertine. For music fanst, the first half of the book is really great recounting Viv's time as a part of the sex pistol inner-circle of friends, her on-again off-again tortured romance with Mick Jones and her encounters with everyone from Chrissy Hynde to Malcolm Mclaren. The second half of the book is even better really, telling the story of the rest of Viv's life and her battles with cancer, men, and depression. It also chronicles Her life as a filmmaker/videographer, wife and mother, and her eventual make-up with music after leaving it behind for almost 25 years. She has crazy will power and her personality is clearly a force of nature. It was a great read and I highly recommend it. So, reading that got me listening to a lot of the music that she wrote about and that got me digging through my old power pop and punk files and I decided rather than play a whole bunch of stuff you all probably know by heart I'd throw out some more obscure and less heard stuff. So I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I have putting this modcast together.
