Old Time Religion Radio is going through some changes and there have been some questions about it, namely “Is the show going off the air for good?”
Short answer: Nah, man. We’re soldiering on like always, just in some new places.
Long answer: Come into my office for a sec, grab a drink… Continue reading Is Old Time Religion going off the air?

If you haven’t listened in a while, you may wonder why there’s no show tonight. If you have been listening then you’re likely tired of hearing it: OTRRH is moving to a new time!
Starting this weekend (9/5) every Saturday morning at BBOXRadio.com, I’ll be doing a two-hour show starting at 10:30am EST. All of the vintage cuts you’re used to will still be there, but I’m also including more modern tracks that hearken back to older influences (a la my Throwback to Tomorrow specials.)
My hope is that two hours every week will leave room for more guest hosts and artist interviews as well. Want to sound off about the changes? Hit me up, as always, at my Twitter.
Thanks for sticking with me this far, hope you enjoy the ride from here on out!
I haven’t missed a show in 2 years. I’ve always had a new show every week, but this week finally proved so crazy that I wasn’t able to get it done, folks.
Even though I use a lot of tracks taken from my own vinyl, I use my computer to organize and sort through everything and last week it crashed. Hard. My entire music collection, located on an external hard drive, was erased and I had to spend two days crossing my fingers that Data Rescue would be able to salvage some of it. It seems to have worked, but I’ll be damned if I’m plugging anything into this old computer. So that slowed me down.
Add two sick kids to the mix. That’ll put anyone behind.
This last one some of you may not know. In an unexpected series of events I recently became the station manager at my home station, BBOXRadio.com out of Brooklyn, NY. Over this past weekend we moved our studio to a new space and there were shenanigans on the part of the landlord, so most of my time over the last week was getting that sorted out. Rewiring everything, getting a working radio station back online, training new hosts, making sure all the old hosts have access, all this along with the computer and kid situation kept me from getting the show put together this week.
So I ran a restream, but it’s a damn good one! My brief history of punk, originally aired in October of 2013, going over the evolution of punk chronologically starting in 1965 and ending in the glory days of 1977. The link is below, hope you enjoy it, and I’ll have a new live show for you next week!
Thanks for sticking with me!
It’s happened again!
RadioCarrum.org, a local internet station in the Melbourne suburb of Carrum, has decided to welcome the show to their lineup of mostly community programming.
Carrum’s an interesting place, formerly mostly consisting of swampland that’s been appropriated over the years. It’s also seemingly the farthest South you can go in Australia. For the curious types out there, check out the Wikipedia page.
Starting Wednesday 1/21, Radio Carrum will be simulcasting the live show every week. Here in Brooklyn, OTRRH goes on at 11:30pm as usual, but in Southeast Australia it’ll be 3:30pm Thursday afternoon. They’re also restreaming the most current episode on Saturdays at 11:00am AEDT (or Fri 7pmEST here). Tune in via their website or the ever-useful TuneIn Radio app.
Many thanks to Radio Carrum for broadcasting the show, and thanks to all the folks who think OTRRH is worth airing. I’ll keep working to get the music out to as many ears as possible, thanks for lending yours!
This week focuses on the (literally) unsung heroes that arrange & compose new material & revive old folk standards to keep them fresh. It’s all instrumentals, join me 11:30pmEST at http://www.BBOXRadio.com!
Because of the young lady on the left I’m going to be much quieter these next weeks.
I have some brand new prerecorded shows lined up starting with the Halloween special this Weds, and the latest episode (feat tunes from #RobbieBasho #HowardWales #EddySenay & more) airs Tues at 10pmBST/5pmEST on http://www.AffinityRadio.net.
If that’s not enough hit up my Archives at:
Thanks to everyone for the support & well wishes, I’ll be live on-air again in a few weeks!
You might have already heard this news, but it bears repeating. In addition to being able to hear all the vintage power of the show on it’s home station, BBOXRadio.com, some nice folks in the UK have decided syndicate OTRRH every week!
Every Tuesday at 10pm BST (that’s 5pm here in NYC) you can hear the latest episode streaming on http://www.AffinityRadio.net. The folks over there have been nothing but kind so far, and are just trying to keep vintage music alive via their small online operation in Kent, UK.
Thanks so much to everyone who continues to listen, and again to the nice folks at Affinity. Now my UK listeners can hear the show late Tuesday if they like, instead of first thing Thursday morning. I’ll continue to get this great music out into the world every way that I can!
