TRIF (The ‘Eddie Van Halen’ One) – 2020.10.09



I was very sad to hear about the passing of Edward Lodewijk Van Halen this past Tuesday. As a teenager in the early 1980s, I was a huge fan of Van Halen. Especially when they burst onto MTV with all of the great videos from the album 1984.

This week’s playlist pays homage to the legendary man who made a guitar talk in a way that no one else could.

Thank you for all the amazing riffs Eddie. RIP…

TRIF (The ‘School Of Rock’ One) – 2020.10.02



On October 3, 2003 School Of Rock opened in theatres. Frank Black gave us a great performance as the infectious Dewey Finn. This week’s playlist gives a nod to Dewey, some of the music he waxed poetically about, and some of the music by artists featured in the film.

“Now raise your goblet of rock. It’s a toast to those who rock!”
