Mr. Suave's 3rd Annual Christmas Modcast Invitational

Ho, ho, ho, kiddies! It's time for another installment of the now annual Christmas Modcast invitational. That's right, as with all my VIP soirees this one is by invite only. I sent out a limited number of invites and moddoms publicity whores gobbled 'em right up. So, this year, you're going to be treated to a merry mix of seasonal sounds from all manner of podcasters, bloggers and musicians.


You'll hear from the kingpin of mod opinion-makers, Warren Peace of We Are The Mods, who's contribution proves that all a good fade takes is a steadily fiddled knob. And from the long reigning queen of mod podcasting, the one and only Penny Lane from Punks & Parkas. Also on board is the prince of power pop promotion, The Ice Cream Man; mod music maven, Modification's Melvyn Fickling, Mr. style and sophistication himself, soul dj Parka Pat; the mod world's favorite guest host, Ken from The Shingles, plus season's greetings from Paradise, The Idle Gossip, RAF, and The Inciters.

Finally, rounding out the show is a really fantastic spoken word essay from Mary Queen of Cosmos. Not to be missed. Trust me.

Modcast #315: Fully Loaded!

Here in Seattle the days are short, sun sets about 4:30pm. To add woe to that misery it's cold out there these days, sub freezing with black ice everywhere. As per my particular vices it's usually alcohol that warms me up, and nothing does better on a freezing day than some steaming hot alcohol enhanced with a few extras. Add to that a mercurial mix of hot music, and pretty soon you hardly know it's dark and cold. So, mix up something steamy and I'll serve up some songs to help you through the winter.
