This podcast series & blog is inspired by the life of John Peel (1939-2004).

John reached millions of people around the world with his 40 plus years of broadcasting that was carried on the BBC, BBC World Service and countless subscribing radio stations the globe over. You could hear Peel everywhere from mainland Europe, India, Africa to the USA and of course all over the British Isles.

You'll be able to listen to everything great I get my hands on, from studio tracks, private live recordings, online only exclusives to forgotten vinyl gems.

The point is to allow people to listen to great music regardless of commercial intent. Peelie was too modest to want a show dedicated to him. It's always about the music. So from Lawrence, KS to everywhere we can possibly reach, let us remember what it's like to play music without boundaries and restrictions.

If you have the time please leave
a comment, good or bad.
And if you find a
song you love, please use
the provided links
to purchase the artist's music.
Always support the music.

Thanks

Michael Stoecker,
Lawrence, KS, USA

Ad Astra Per Aspera NEW 7" One of my favorite local acts, Ad Astra Per Aspera, has just released a new 7" on Love Garden Records. Its A-side is Danger Bird Blues and the flip is Rrrip-It-Up. Both tracks are absolutely tremendous. (Bet you thought I'd use the word "amazing")

I wish I could share with you a MP3, but I want you guys to buy this awesome little number. There is a digital copy with every vinyl copy too.

But you want to hear the music right now. So go over to AAPA's Myspace and listen to it.

And finally, you're asking "Who's Love Garden Records?"

Well hotshot, they are the local record store in downtown Lawrence, KS. That's right. The record store is the label. How tasty is that.

Thanks to Amanda for telling me about it.

The Embarrassment BACK IN PRINT! Everyone rejoice! The Embarrassment anthology "Heyday" is back in print after being unavailable for far too long. Its back on its original label, Bar None Records.

Order it here from Insound or better yet, tell your local independent record store to get you a copy.

So I finally sobered up.






















Its been four days now and the fact that KU (my alma mater and where I still live here in Lawrence, KS) won the NCAA Basketball Championship over not just Memphis, but North Carolina as well is all but a dream still. It was & will be the best basketball I've ever witnessed for my life, I guarantee it. I ended up standing on a bar being sprayed by the bartender and his tonic water gun. I screamed myself mute. Along with 40,000 fans, I descended upon downtown Lawrence and felt a since of community that pro-sports can never really attain.

That's all. Just thought I'd mention how happy I've been this week.

Rock Chalk!

PS - the photo is of downtown Lawrence after the win.

The 'ol Yank Sizzler is expanding. Starting in April, in addition to this podcast, I will be doing The Yank Sizzler on Dandelion Radio out of London. I've been given the honor to join the wonderful staff of this superb station. My first month's show will be a one-hour run, but after that, I should start a regular two hour program every month.

And on a smaller scale, the old hometown folks of Dodge City, KS will be able to hear a 1 hour Yank Sizzler show every week on KONQ 91.9 FM several different times throughout the week.

Hey everyone,

Sorry about the lack of shows since October. I hate taking hiatus from the show but my recent job took all my spare time away. I was on the road up in Omaha (a wonderful city by the way) working on a Christmas feature film for next year. It was a blast, but it made me neglect the show. I'll be back after the new year, I promise. I really wanted to do a Xmas special podcast, but that too got canned.

Anyway, its Dec. 22nd. I always remember that date for its the birthday of great friend and its the day Joe Strummer left this good earth.

Have a Merry Christmas everyone. Take care and be safe.

Some awesome Tom Waits material Being an avid Tom Waits fan, I cruise by the much updated Waits blog, The Eyeball Kid.

Recently there have been some fun video link posts.

The first is a superb animated music video for "In the Belly of Whale" created by Gal Shkedi of Israel. The piece is somewhat reminiscent of that M. Ward video but only in style. Simply gorgeous.

The second is what I wish the Travel channel was, instead of Las Vegas hype content. Its a bizarre fishing program with John Lurie and Tom Waits in Jamaica.

I've redone a little bit on the site today and now all the non-podcast MP3 & ZIP files I've been sharing are permanent. In the old system they expired after 30 days, but no more. If a file is down, get in touch and I'll fix the link. Later everyone and enjoy the music.

The good news is that a great out of town work trip has presented itself. The bad news is that I'm a lazy tool who won't be able to complete a new Yank Sizzler podcast until I get back around Feb 10th. I desperately wanted to do a new episode for you guys as I've come across some amazing music in the last week. But alas it will need to wait. This only reaffirms that I seriously need to invest in a laptop instead of this PC I use.

But don't fret, instead head on over to Dandelion Radio and make sure you catch the last week of programming this month because it is the new home to the Festive 50 countdown that Mr. John Peel loved so much. It's a great playlist and my voted track "Young Folks" by Peter, Bjorn & John made it to #5. Awesome people + awesome music = Dandelion Radio.

Tootles,

Michael Stoecker
