Live from the Art Mine, Vol. 2 – Chelsea Nolan

The first official opening of the Kentucky Art Mine, since Covid showed up on our world’s doorstep. And we couldn’t be more excited that our first “Live from the Art Mine” show is none other than our good friend, and amazing talent, Chelsea Nolan! The art gallery will be open to explore prior to and after the show and Chelsea will be playing a one hour, intimate and personal show that will be simulcast on Trendkill Radio, in real time.

Max Wax, Vol. 105

Tonight’s episode of Max Wax Live is all about God, Satan, Good and Evil. Every track was picked by our music junkies in the Trendkill Radio Group on FB, who will each get credited during the show for their pick. This show isn’t exactly what you think it will be and that’s kinda the point. Most of these tracks, you’ve never heard, I bet. So check it out, and let the ultimate war wage on! It’s one of the best playlists I’ve ever scheduled.

“KTFT Fan Friday” – Discoveries from January 2020

 | L | | H | | M | aka LightningHockeyMusic ~ 4/30/2021
I’m happy to announce that I’ve been invited by Bobby Rayfield from “” to be a guest host on “KTFT Fan Friday”.
Airing Friday, April 30th at 1 p.m. Eastern on “”. I’ll be sharing with you some new-to-me sounds in an hour long show titled, “Discoveries from January 2020”. You’ll also hear me provide some nuggets of information regarding the bands.
This is a journey of musical discovery through the first month of 2020, yes, over a year ago; but I just finished finding and assembling all this music a couple of weeks ago (started researching these albums a couple of months ago). Amazing how much music I miss while making other plans.
You can also check out a 96 minute version of the show that has bonus tracks and is without commentary from me; just glorious music:
Thanks for your support!
