Today ASU's 1260 The Blaze celebrated their 25th Anniversary. The main draw card for tuning is was Robin Wilson as a special guest between 10pm and 12am. Scheduled between that time anyway - he was quite hasty to leave after an hour. [wink]

While it was disappointing that he stayed away from local music, his recollections of the Tempe scene were great. Although he bailed after the first hour, the redeeming factor was that Sarah Ventre played some of the best local stuff there is, starting with a double shot of the Blossoms, through to Dead Hot, Refreshments, Pistoleros. Out of the whole hour there were only three songs that a) I didn't know and b) don't have on constant rotation - The Glass Heros, Meat Puppets and Gloritone. Really was more or less having my iPod on shuffle!

  1. Allison Road - Gin Blossoms
  2. Mrs. Rita - Gin Blossoms
  3. Sunnyslope - Fish Karma
  4. Sara Says - Zubia Brothers
  5. Suckerpunch - The Refreshments
  6. A - Dead Hot Workshop
  7. Rock Me Better - The Glass Heros
  8. Lake Of Fire - Meat Puppets
  9. My Guardian Angel - The Pistoleros
  10. 1000 to 1 - Gloritone
  11. Chorus - Scott Johnson
  12. Elly Bussa Touch The Sky - Dead Hot Workshop
  13. Tangled - Dead Hot Workshop
  14. Preacher's Daughter - The Refreshments
  15. Learning The Hard Way - Gin Blossoms
  16. 'Til I Hear It From You - Gin Blossoms
Hearing Chorus played was kick ass. Hearing Blossoms songs wasn't too shocking, given Robin being in the studio earlier, but Scotty Johnson getting airtime was too cool.

And hey, anyone who chooses to play A and Tangled is okay by me! [wink]

I don't know how much of the rest of the 25 hours was local stuff, but I really think that this was the two hours to tune in for!
Now Playing: Sara Says - Zubia Brothers
