Join Austin Rich & Xeres of Xeron as they explore Four Hours of Northwest rarities and gems in this special broadcast, covering for Northwest Notes on KMUZ. You can find all the shows here, in podcast form, with over 30 minutes of bonus songs that were not heard during the original broadcast, and a commentary track where Xeres discusses the songs, and why he selected them. This is a heavy dose of Northwest History that you can only find here. Enjoy!
In this first show, join us for Rural Ruminations, Panic Favorites, & Switched Off Eugene, as we explore country, punk and electronic music from the Northwest by artists that are unfairly under-represented in music history. Find out what kind of music the kids in Old Coos Bay used to enjoy, with a little help from Austin & Xeres.
In this second show, we explore specific artists from the Northwest that have not yet gotten the recognition they deserve, or, in some cases, we get to hear their humble beginnings. Amy Denio, Fred Chalenor, Trey Gunn, Remember Valsetz and music by Xeres himself all find their way into this show, and paint a picture of the Northwest that you cannot hear anywhere else.
After the smoke had cleared, and we had a chance to evaluate the show from the comfort of the Lava Lamp Lounge, Xeres and I reflect on the musical selections we made, and why they were important to him.
