Meet your new favorite band, Soul-Junk. Founded in 1993, with albums dating back as far as 1950 (we'll explain later), singer/songwriter/producer Glen Galaxy has eluded all preconceptions of gospel music by remaining true to his artistic vision. I met with him at his San Diedo studio, Singing Serpent, and dropped a bunch of songs into the mix. If you've never listened to this band, sit down. You're in for a lot of surprises.
She first hit the airwaves in the early 70s and never stopped making music. Her voice is like cotton candy or a glass of brandy, singing soulful reggae music perfect for summertime. We chatted her up about her beginnings, family, and the road to her newest album, "The Girl Who Cried."
Martin Newell played in various glam rock bands in the 1970s. Then, in the 1980s, dismayed with record companies wanting him to play by their rules, he started his group The Cleaners From Venus and released their albums on cassette. They've released dozens of albums since the beginning when they were "liberating" blank cassettes from shops in England so they could give them away for free. My panel discusses their music, and then we have a long-form, very entertaining conversation with Mr. Newell, and we premier a couple new tracks from a future album. This is our first international guest on the program and it was a real blast!
You may not know his name, but you've heard him sing. As guest host Mike puts it: "He's the hipster saint. He's the bop legend. He's the grandfather of the love of the son of the hip magic that sprinkles all over the earth that keeps us all livin' and growin'. He's BOB DOROUGH."

Jeremy and I sit down with OLD TIME RELIJUN frontman Arrington DiDionyso, who are have recently returned from a ten-year hiatus with a new album "See Now and Know" and a new tour that started the night before this episode's release. We discuss the origins of the group, influences, lyrical themes and sonic aesthetics. This is a band on a mission to make you dance. Their formula is equal parts joy and terror.
Gary Wilson has been making music since the 1960s and is more active than ever now. His music rides the fence that lies between lounge act and the avant-garde; fun to listen to and difficult to describe. Speaking with Gary, we pull back the curtain and dive into his mind, a place from which one can never return.
She was a jazz pianist in the 1960s, uninterested in the spotlight. A friend played "Pet Sounds" for her and she became a pop fan, and recorded one of the finest pop records of all time in 1969, "Take a Picture." Radio silence followed, until her music had developed a cult following some 30 years later. Today we focus in on Margo Guryan. Special guest John Rosner gives us the inside scoop. Also, patreon.com/lowfprofile is now active (Hey Nick!)
Christian rock wasn’t always a thing, until the controversial singer-songwriter Larry Norman came around. In an era when the church deemed rock and roll evil, Larry wrote a song called “Why Should the Devil Have All the Good Music.”
He threw a wrench in the gears of rock and roll history as we know it. My friends and I discuss this game-changing artist’s career (and his influence) at length.
