On this week’s show:
We kick things off with an awesome cut from “Hero: The Main Man Records Tribute To David Bowie”: Frankenstein 3000’s version of “Queen Bitch.” The tribute album features killer Bowie covers from a number of great bands including NJ’s own Frankenstein 3000, Atomic Bitchwax, Acid, and Kingston & Greystarr! The white vinyl version sold out almost immediately but the black vinyl version is on the way. Check it out now at mainmanrecords.com!
Taylor Tote calls in to the show to tell us about her latest single. “Evergreen” is an awesome duet featuring Nick Ryan. Tote and Ryan wrote the song with a little help from Ashley Mckinley. It’s a powerful, beautiful track that is brimming with creative chemistry. You can catch Taylor Tote on tour with Remember Jones at The Grammercy Theater in NYC on 4/20 and The Count Basie Theater in Red Bank on 4/24. Learn more at taylortote.com!
We crank a great tune from Deal Casino. All local shows are cancelled for at least the next few weeks. In response to that a lot of local artists are streaming live performances on the internet. Deal Casino is taking it one step further with their live streaming event “Quarantour.” It features performances from Shoobies (3/23), Stillhungry (3/24), Skyeline (3/25), The Happy Fits (3/26), and Sonic Blume (3/27) to benefit Feeding America. Check it out this week on IG Live. Learn more at dealcasinomusic.com!
Jimmy Franklin calls in to the show! Known on youtube as Working Class Musician, Jimmy is involved in a number of musical projects including Big Tom And The Guns, Nick Ryan And The Mess, and his latest project As Seen On TV. The TV theme tribute act was suppossed to rock House Of Indepenents in April. That show is being rescheduled in response to the Covid-19 outbreak. If you’re looking for something to do while quarantined, you take video guitar lessons from Jimmy. Check him out on instagram at @jimmyfranklin.
We close things out with a totally rad track from Corevalay. The North Jersey Hard Rock outfit are veterans of a number of Jersey Rock Showcase shows. Their latest release “Forever” is out now. We’re looking forward to hearing new material from them asap! Check them out at corevalay.com!
