Ruby Slippers for Jan 29 7-8 pm IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Hey everybody,

Tonight is the big night that I get to see Lisa Fischer ("Twenty Feet From Stardom") so DJNico will be in the house, spinning loads of excellent tunes and keeping the Friday night party going.

I will post her playlist when she sends it to me this week. In the meantime, stay safe and catch you next week.

Much love

Ruby Red

Ruby Slippers Jan 22 7-8 pm

Hey everybody

First of all, thanks for dropping by. After last week's rage against the universe, I think the playlist this time is more uplifting. Loads of new stuff, upbeat, danceable. And I even have a book to recommend to you.

If you are a fan of the history of new music, David Cavanagh's "Good Night and Good Riddance: How 35 Years of John Peel Helped to Shape Modern Life" is for you. A committment at over 600 pages, it nonetheless is extremely hard to put down. Peel remains an inspiration to DJs everywhere and remained relevant throughout his long career. As I have been reading it, I have felt compelled to jot down band after band with an eye to following up on them in the months ahead.

In the meantime, here's the list for this week. Hope you enjoy it.

Devil In Disguise ... Autumn Kings * (Windsor
Get Outa My Way ... The Laughing Dogs
When Time Will Slow Down ... Mother Leads * (new)
Endless ... Within Rust * (new)
Post-Apocalypteacakes ... Hologram Teen (relatively new)
Intro Song/Fall Back To Earth ... Black Cloud *
Rain Cloud ... Slow Spirit *
Tea, Milk & Honey ... Oh Pep! (Australia)
On Our Own (Alt Teaser) ... Dead Day Revolution (listener band recommendation)
Windfall ... Dead Can Dance (Australia)
It Was Nothing ... Meter Bridge * (new)
Plates 2 ... Aero Flynn
Keep On Dancing ... We Are The City * (new)
Barry Was An Arm's Dealer ... Rodnew Cromwell (new)

Next week, DJ Nico will be at the helm as I am finally going to see Lisa Fischer in concert.

Will report back Feb. 5! Cheers!!!
