Paying homage to the greatest Wisconsin soundbite of the year—a snarled, out-of-context snippet of casual profanity from Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin that played on constant loop during the election—FM 102.1 morning dudes Brian Kramp and Jon Adler have released their first CD. You're Damn Right! collects 19 tracks of songs, skits and snippets from the duo's "The Kramp and Adler Morning Show," i...

I'll be on FM 102.1's "Indie Soundcheck" program Sunday night at 11 p.m., as will the Arctic Monkeys�a potentially embarrassing confluence that could highlight my inability to pronounce the word "Arctic" (too word with far too many consonants for this particular tongue). Will I choke on the word? Will the Monkeys share charming anecdotes? Will they jam with host Ryan Miller? Stay tuned: Sunday, 11...

FM 102.1 has been running its top 200 songs of the 2000s countdown all week, so at this point I don't think I'm spoiling anything if I note the countdown's top song: "Seven National Army" by The White Stripes.  It's an inspired choice. In a decade when the genre spawned few lasting stars, The White Stripes were one of the few acts that made alternative rock seem as fresh and limitless as it ha...

FM 102.1 is counting down the best alternative music of the decade this Labor Day weekend, so I'll be doing my semi-regular Sunday guest appearance on Ryan Miller's "Indie Soundcheck" program on Monday night this week instead. It's been a busy week in the music world, so we should have plenty to discuss. If you haven't caught Ryan's show lately, you're missing a great selection of recent music ...

In a Sunday tradition I'm looking forward to almost as much as the Locust Street Festival, the great Ryan Miller is having me back on his Indie Soundcheck program on FM 102.1 Sunday night at 11 p.m. It's always a really entertaining hour of radio, so if you're up, listen to me and the friendliest man in radio trade music recommendations. I'm excited to see what he's got up his sleeve this week....

As I am most Sundays, I'll be on Ryan Miller's "Indie Soundcheck" program on FM 102.1 this Sunday at 11 p.m. chatting about music news and whatever else captures our interest. Every time I stop by, I'm amazed by the sheer amount of new music that Ryan plays on his program; he never fails to introduce me to at least a couple new songs. Here's a taste of some of the newer tracks he's played in th...

A quick plug for myself: I'll be on Ryan Miller's Indie Soundcheck program on FM 102.1 on Sunday night talking about... actually, I don't know what we'll be talking about yet, but it will definitely involve music, that much I can promise. And it will probably involve me offering hyper-enthused recommendations of new music, so check it out. ...
