Quarantine Takeover – Bobby & Doc Pine Return!

August 30th, 2020 by The Professor

This week marks not only the return of Doc Pine & Bobby to the Quarantine Takeover show but the world premiere of 12yr old Bobby’s soon to be classic “The Bro Down”. Could it be the feelgood hit of the summer with young Calvin (probably not with Hobbes or Susie)? Doc Pine continues in his efforts to school Bobby on classic tunes and new Americana releases, possibly slipping in some of his own (many) bands’ works.

Doc Pine combines creepy old Appalachian music, off kilter honky-tonk, murder ballads, yodeling, heavy rock jingles, and junkyard blues stomps in the hope of one day getting invited to the Sadie Hawkins Dance. He claims his songs “have been filtered through ten feet of sugar maple charcoal, which imparts a distinct smoothness to the music.” He has been cleared of all charges pertaining to a Louisiana bank heist in the summer of ‘09, although some investigations remain curiously incomplete. Find Doc Pine & The Respect He Deserves on Facebook or their website.

Quarantine Takeover – Red Sammy

August 24th, 2020 by The Professor

This week we hand over the keys to Baltimore band Red Sammy! Listen in at 7pm Tuesday and Thursday to take a wander through the minds of Adam Trice and Bruce Elliot from Red Sammy and hear from their new album releasing next week.

Adam Trice is an American writer, singer, and songwriter from Baltimore, MD. In 2007, he began performing in solo and duo ensembles under the name Red Sammy. His unique songwriting style blends rock, folk, country, and blues with thoughtful, and often, deeply emotional words that highlight a poetic sensibility. The name, Red Sammy, is taken from a minor character, Red Sammy Butts, in American southern gothic writer, Flannery O’Connor’s short story, “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” (1955). Notable songwriters and writers of inspiration include: Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Alejandro Escovedo, Tom Waits, Tom Petty, Lucinda Williams, Frank Black/The Pixies, Raymond Carver, W.C. Williams, Ernest Hemingway, Charles Bukowski, and many others.

Bruce Elliott is a Baltimore native with a life-long passion for music. He reluctantly put his musical ambitions on hold after college, choosing instead to pursue a career in science and technology. Once he had established himself as a responsible tax-paying adult, however, he made good on a promise to himself to return to his pursuit of playing the guitar in a band. He began by playing open-mic jams and then over the years played in several local bands including The Wharf Rats, To Big To Fail, and Retro Deluxe, as well as various lineups with veteran of the local music scene, Georgie Jessup. His current on-going effort is with the Red Sammy band, with whom he has played since 2014, contributing to three CDs. His playing style reflects influences of J.J. Cale, Eric Clapton, Jerry Garcia, and many others.

New Show! Hip Hop Revisited with Saleem

August 7th, 2020 by The Professor

Saturday 3-4pm August 8
2-4pm every Saturday following!

Come explore the history and world of Hip-Hop every week with local artist Saleem!

I could introduce him to you as Saleem the emcee, or I could introduce you to him as Saleem the producer. However I think the most apropos title would be Saleem, the dopest emcee on production! Starting out with an ASRX-PRO and a microphone, Saleem has been blazing his trail through hip-hop’s indie scene for several years. Performing with luminaries such as Common, The Roots, KRS-One, Rakim, and The Wu-Tang clan, to name a few, tends to hone and sharpen your skills. These experiences led him to craft his highly regarded debut album, which now lends its title to this new show, Hip-Hop Revisited. A bold title for a bold project that served as a welcome, and refreshing, introduction into the world of this multifaceted artist; or as one writer described him, “The embodiment of hip-hop’s evolution.” Read the rest of this entry »
