#1623: All Or Nothing (guest host: Kurtis Powers)

Every summer I go on vacation with my kids for a month or so, and in the past I’ve just aired a bunch of prerecorded shows during the month of July.  This year, though, I had the opportunity to try something I’ve always loved hearing on radio: the Special Guest Host.

This week Kurtis Powers (The Face Radio, Loaded NYC) brings his Mod sensibilities to bear on Old Time Religion.  Ever since we met at one of his Northern Soul club nights some years back, Kurtis and I have shared a passion for drawing comparisons between the classic sounds of the ’60s and their influence on the modern day.  We also share the distinction of having our shows air on BBOX Radio and alternately on Affinity Radio as well.  He’s a great guy, and been a good friend to me personally and a big supporter of the show.

Kurtis approaches today’s set with a mellow opening act followed by some, as he always says, real blinders in the second hour.  Full of soul, mod, psych rock and garage, this is one set you don’t want to miss!

Big love and many thanks to Kurtis for filling in, check him out live every week on the Face Radio, Sundays 4-6pmEST on BBOXRadio.com, every Saturday 8-10pmGMT on AffinityRadio.net, and every first Thursday in NYC at his brit-pop club night, Loaded NYC.
