Serious vinyl listening… and serious music talk!

Monuments in Ruin, Ch. 178

What may be an endurance contest for some listeners is intriguing and exciting to others. This week we “hang on a loosely” to a synth/prog foundation with a few other things that fit closely within to create a trance like musical state of meditation, audible story lines and things that break the mold of most modern day music structure and formatting. Louder is better!

“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 “https://www.mixcloud.com/MonumentsInRuin/” to be a guest host on “KTFT Fan Friday”.
Airing Friday, April 30th at 1 p.m. Eastern on “trendkillradio.com”. 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!

The image says it all. I’m pulling and spinning records that fit a day like this. This journey starts off with some Sabbath in Jazz form, heads into some Blues, picks up steam w/ some acoustic stuff from a Hank Sr. cover to some MTV Unplugged gems and I close the show out the way this day’s closing out… heavy. Tune in! It’s LIVE VINYL (you know… like the old days.)
