icepicks - volume 1

icepicks - volume 1
if you've stuck with us for awhile, you know i used to do icepicks with Jeff Duran on FM Los Angeles. it gave me a hell of an opportunity to get bands heard in a major market and we even had Dallas vs LA where we went head to head with LA bands and won. that came and went and while still a good idea, no real place to set it free right now, so i'll steal my name back and put it on a different segment where i just pick 5 bands to show off as i think they've got a world of talent and need to be seen. kinda our entire point of being here, ya know? in this case i'll show off some new bands and brin...

500 street fights

500 fights, that's the number I figured when I was a kid. 500 street fights and you could consider yourself a legitimate tough guy. You need them for experience. To develop leather skin. So I got started. Of course along the way you stop thinking about being tough and all that. It stops being the point. You get past the silliness of it all. But then, after, you realize that's what you are. this, of course, is from the 2001 film knockaround guys. i wish i could take credit for it but if i did, well yea, i'd personalize it a bit. however, the message is the same when you do just that. twist it a...

The Art of Illusions by Dark Avenue

The Art of Illusions by Dark Avenue





“Dance with me my darling,” the tall, dapper young man said as he elegantly grasped a soft, delicate hand and kissed it.  Leading his lady of choice onto the empty dance floor in the middle of a crowded ball room, the gentleman places his right hand on her waist and takes her other hand into his left.  As they stare deeply into each other’s eyes, the band begins to play and the couple starts to waltz across the dance floor.  Leading with his left foot, he grasps her firmly at the waist and spins her around, floating effortlessly across the dance floor. By the first full spin acr...

it was 1979 and boston was rockin it

it's 1979 and musical powerhouses such as boston are filling up giants stadium. led zepplin is making instant classics, aerosmith is dreamin on, rolling stones rolling along, AC/DC and hell, if you've been around or have studied the musical past, you'll realize how many bands were out there writing the music that today is about all FM plays. the question then becomes something gene simmons has asked that the answer is varied and "out of focus" really. who are the bands today  that will be "classics" tomorrow? the world is changing and while i will forever think "rock is dead" is overdrama...

Live from 7 Somethings to 7 Something Else!

Live from 7 Somethings to 7 Something Else!
Or was it 6 somethings to 6 something else?  7th and Neches is only a block north of 6th street so it's close enough. This is the wandering one reporting LIVE from 7th and Neches (aka The Rock Block) for the 17th Annual Heart of Texas Rockfest in downtown Austin, Texas!  That's right everyone, a tune pilgrimage was made earlier last week to The Rock Block to acquire knowledge of the 2016 Texas Rockfest from none other than its creator and founder Mr. Adam Brewer. The result is the 2016 Rockfest Radio broadcast that shall air TONIGHT starting at 7pm central time only on RenegadeRadio....

royal bliss - carrying the rock and roll torch

royal bliss - carrying the rock and roll torch
Time can be a funny thing. You can be the same “kind” of sound that sold like crazy, oh say 25 years ago or so, but for some reason, it doesn’t sell today. Well, outside Taylor Swift and Adele, what DOES sell today? But let’s put that bit of anger I carry away and focus on the music. You see, the more I dig the more I find rock and roll. The rock and roll train that was so easy to spot did in fact take a head long collision into technology and got scattered in what must have been a “big bang” of its’ own. Where once everything was all wrapped up in a tidy package, it’s gone and it’s now every ...

shock tu, 25 years later...give or take

shock tu, 25 years later...give or take
it was certainly a night no one will forget. at least not those who were there. shock tu, with frontman joey c jones, came together after a 25 year hiatus and for just over an hour, it was like 25 years had never passed. well, except the audiences were older and likely got home before the dawn this time around, but the sound, the strength of joeys vocals was spot on. gas monkey live continues to be the top venue in dallas and if they're coming your way, they will be the best there too. it's what they do. we do have something special hooking up with gas monkey and rock monster radio in the comi...
