Join Paul and daughter Sarah as they count down their Top 20 Christmas songs. They'll also reveal 3 Christmas tunes on their "naughty" list, plus share some traditional Christmas hymns sung like you've never heard them before.
This is a show that aired LIVE (simulcast on both KBWD and KOXE) on a cold December day back in 2016. The radio station podcast recorder accidentally cut off well before the live show ended. In a painstaking exercise, it's now been completely remastered and the countdown fully restored!

The 90s was a weird time for me musically. I wasn't super into grunge. Hair metal (certainly not my thing) was thankfully dying out. And my 70's & 80's music heroes were either breaking up, trying to reinvent themselves or dead. So I started listening to a lot of various stuff. Here's some I hope you like as much as I do.
Note: This episode is a re-post from last week. Upon listening, I realized that i processed all the music in mono. Which makes a big difference when you hear a band like Eels.

Some that just might give you nightmares and others that are more lighthearted. Enjoy this fast-paced look at the songs that I think of when I think Halloween. Make it your Trick-or-Treating soundtrack!

The highway for KK Bodiford & Amelia Presley (The Highway Sisters) hasn't always been the smoothest of rides. Individually, each has enjoyed moments in the fast lane where their careers appeared to be taking off. KK competed on season 1 of Nashville Star alongside some nobody named Miranda Lambert. While Amelia had a face to face with Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie on American Idol in 2018. Both share beautiful, humbling stories about these & many other life experiences.
I had only met Amelia briefly before we sat down and KK not at all. But, it's amazing what can transpire over an ice cold beer and a "Six-Pack" of Rock & Roll. It's a can't miss story of life in the music business from these 2 unique voices that go together like fried chicken & waffles or pizza & ranch dressing; meaning, you wouldn't think they'd sound good together, but WOW, DO THEY EVER!

Ok, I don't want to give away any of the songs here. But you will hear the following names brought in relation to these hidden gems: Badfinger, Cheap Trick, Billy Squier, Fleetwood Mac, Kiss, Alice Cooper, Steel Breeze & Van Halen.
This show is one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy it!

You'll hear from an American Power Pop band, British pioneers of hard rock, a sexy crooner, a bubble gum band, a disco group (pre-disco) , a duo that went on to be huge with another band, a could-have-been band, a demo that went on to be a solo hit, and a Canadian band that would have to wait 6 more years to hit it big in America.
How many of these 10 songs are you familiar with?

We start off talking Ric Ocasek, but ultimately decide to save that tribute till next week. This week it's all Eddie Money. 10 (actually 11) songs with stories behind all of them.

Listen as Paul, KOXE radio personality Starr and producer Jill discuss everything Rob Thomas. Lots of Matchbox stuff here and of course, we talk about THAT song! You know the one that started out as a great Latin summer jam and then ultimately became a victim of its own success. You'll also hear plenty from the man with those piercing baby blues himself.
So step back into the 90's with us tonight on GDR!
