Suburban Dance Radio for June 2, 2020

Suburban Dance Radio is on every even Tuesday on KOWS Community Radio 92.5 FM in Santa Rosa, CA at 8pm up in Sonoma County and streaming online. I am archiving shows on Mixcloud about a week later. Shows will also appear for up to a month on my SoundCloud page.

The soundtrack to your suburban existence. Mix that pitcher of Log Island Ice Tea and fire up the grill. It’s time to relax to a solid blend of post punk, jazz, funk, experimental, hip hop, blues, dub, noise rock and more. Sounds from across the ages and around the planet. Specializing in rare cuts that look good next to the condiment trolley.
