Top Ten Best Musical Experiences of 2012
1. Flying ‘outsider’ pop artist Jan Terri to Seattle to play a show. Watch here (Start at 10:30 to see her youtube hit, “Losin’ You”)
2. Shaking Lana Del Rey’s hand backstage at Easy Street Records. Never washing my hand.
3. Seeing newish feral heartthrob band Health Problems perform at the Black Lodge: Watch here
4. Lori Goldston & Karl Blau soothing souls at my wedding.
5. Doing that dance where you plug your nose and jump into a pool while listening to Shana Cleveland’s new surf band La Luz at Cafe Racer.
6. Playing the best gig of my life in a ‘Blacklight Bar’ in Salem, Oregon with my band WaMu to 4 people (two friends, and two guys later introduced as Death Metal Dave and his buddy David).
7. Watching Kenneth Piekarski of Slashed Tires play experimental lounge pop / ‘smooth grunge’ at the upscale Triple Door Musiquarium bar on Halloween night.
8. Father & son Eric Ostrowski / Ian Ostrowski putting out equally good & vastly different solo albums on the same day.
9. Krudas Cubensi (Cuban queer feminist hip-hop) turning Hollow Earth Radio into a huge dance party.
10. Setting up one of the raddest punk shows ever in the banquet room of the Moon Temple Chinese Food restaurant in Wallingford.

Welcome to the new (and not necessarily improved) blog for Hollow Earth Radio! We've decided to move away from using our old tumblr blog and instead have everything integrated right here on our site! If you've been w/ us since the beginning, this will be our fourth of fifth blog transition since we were down in the basement. GOTTA KEEP IT FRESH as they say.
In any case, we're also hoping to create more specialized content concerning the Hollow Earth Radio community (that's you!), providing music reviews from our new team of music managers, share videos and music from the very best in local and weird, and other bizness.
Speaking of our BIZNESS, let's talk new radio programs! We have a slew of new DJ's who just completed our highly competitive Music Panel; each of these potential disc jockeys had to give a pitch to a our existing DJ's who then gave feedback and ultimately decided the fate of the proposed programs.
The new dj's in training are busy creating their Radio Program profiles and we'll post an update on the blog highlighting all the new content once they are all settled in. Expect some wild content in the near future!
