From The Board Ep 13

The tickets are in hand. The surcharge has been grudgingly paid. Drinks were had in the parking lot. It’s time to rock. Here at Balcony Radio we know you’re too lazy to do all that. So, we bring the show to you. In episode 13 of From the Board we play a couple dozen live […]

From The Board Ep 12-“Live” From The 70s

There has been a big move of late for the preservation of ‘live’ concerts as the best way to experience your favorite artist. Back in the 70s there were lots of TV shows dedicated to the late-night rock and roll needs of the average white punk on dope. For episode 12 of our tribute to ‘live’ […]

From The Board Ep 11: The British Invasion

Once upon a time there was a band. They were from Liverpool. They ran around England playing music and made a lot of girls scream.

For a couple of days in August 1969 about three hundred thousand dirty hippies occupied a rural upstate New York farming community . . . people died, people were born, brown acid was eaten and some of the greatest rock and roll ever played before a live audience happened. In the eighth edition of our […]

Cafe What

From The Board Ep 7 Coffee House Folk

Through smoke and haze, the aroma of cappuccino (there’s also espresso, if you prefer) and something that doesn’t smell like tobacco, is a dusty stage with a single microphone and a stool. A singer with bad skin and bad clothes is warbling an old folk song about a train ride through snowy mountains and hitchhiking on an […]
