Kava Soup KGO blog - best unsigned bands
XXXXX I appeared on KGO-AM’s (810) Ronn Owens on Friday Dec. 21, playing two hours of Bay Area music for a show entitled “The Best Music You’ve Never Heard.” For five years I did the show with Pete Wilson, who died last July, and Ronn wanted to revive it in his honor. It worked. Something was shining down on us. Must have been the oversized image of Wilson’s head they put on his old studio chair. For two hours we got no turkeys, just really great unsigned bands, including Sherry Austin, Mighty Mike Schermer, Colby Pollard, Lauren and Judge Murphy, the Attila and Dave Project and the Wicked Sons. You can get the list and links to their sites at www.kgo.com. You’ll be surprised at how much great talent there is in the area, and how many great musicians can’t get signed to major labels anymore. We’ll do the show again in 2008.
