L.A. Buzz Bands Show (holiday edition), tonight at 10 on 88.5 The SoCal Sound


Join me at 10 tonight for a special holiday edition of the L.A. Buzz Bands Show on 88.5 FM The SoCal Sound.

This week’s local music program will be devoted to Christmas music — not the usual deluge of covers (though there are a couple), but new, original songs. So tune in for music from Sara Noelle, Fitz and the Tantrums, Save Ferris, Sego, EELS, Pluto Saffron, STACEY, Greg Laswell,, Savannah Sgro, Jesse Wagner & Western Standard Time Ska Orchestra, Matt Rogers & MUNA, Little Luna and more.

I’ll be back on New Year’s Eve for the third and final week of “These Are a Few of My Favorite Songs,” selections from the Buzz Bands 101 top songs of 2023. (Find the first two weeks of the yearender show in the archives.) And happy holidays to all …
