Uncle Eddy’s Mixtapes: Volume 20 – Back in the Summer of ’85

Over the past few summers, I’ve reflected back on how Summertime was my favorite time of the year when I was a kid. My birthday is in July… there is Independence Day and all its celebrations… we were out of school and I had a bunch of kids to play with because my mom was a babysitter all year long… lots of camping and swimming. Thinking back, it seems most of my vivid memories surround Summertime (other than those that revolve around Christmas/Winter holidays). So this year, I wanted to come up with a Summer playlist… something to take me back those childhood summers and the memories that accompany. As I tried to remember any songs that evoked memories of summertime, a lot of memories seemed too vague to clearly remember what songs correspond to what time of year, but eventually some things came into more focus. Mostly, I remember playing oldies in the house, because that’s what my mom could tolerate/appreciate (and I pretty specifically remember one Summer when oldies radio KSAJ advertised giving away a 1965 Mustang as a part of a promotion/celebration they were holding that year). But I also remember playing my 80s Top 40 radio recordings in the backyard, and I’m sure that most of my favorite recorded-from-the-radio tapes were recorded in the summer, because I had more time to spend next to my radio and tape recorder.And the hits of 1985 really do seem to stand out. A couple months ago, I was listening to the American Top 40 top 100 hits of 1985, and I came to the conclusion that, for me, that year best represents the entire decade of the 1980s. Short of any hits from Michael Jackson, that year saw chart action by the biggest names of the decade and featured some of the seminal albums that still define what the 80s meant to us as kids. As I pondered how to create a summertime playlist/mixtape, it seemed to make sense to focus on one summer during my childhood… the hits that resonated around us and played on my portable radio and tapeplayer during that 80s summer… and probably several summers following. So, I chose the summer of 1985… because like I said earlier, the songs, artists, and albums of that year really seem to sum up the entire decade and the bulk of my childhood in a number of ways. Not all of t

BONUS: AVENGEMENT’s Jesse V. Johnson Stops By For a Quick Chat

EStarting last month, we’re dropping small episodes and bonuses across the whole network to give fans of our podcasts a taste of our other shows. In our first such bonus, we’ve got a little taste of the Grindhouse Messiah for everyone to check out. 2019 has been a killer year for director Jesse V. Johnson, who has twin action gems out right now in Triple Threat and Avengement. On this bonus podcast, Justin chats with Jesse about Avengement and as many other topics as he could in their limited time together. The conversation is included raw and unedited. Forgive any overtalk, as a slight delay caused Justin to feel like a dick for talking over Jesse at least a few times. After this chat, listen to a segment of last year’s episode with Ed Travis, founder and editor of Cinapse. In this segment, Ed joins Blaine and Justin to chat about Jesse’s 2018 action flick, The Debt Collector. Avengement is out now, so after you listen, make sure to check it out!

Uncle Eddy’s Mixtapes: Z-Jam – Saturday February 1, 1992

This installment of Uncle Eddy’s Mixtapes makes the third episode to feature a tape recorded from Wichita’s Christian radio station, Z-91. First I posted a broadcast of the Alternative show, The Edge, and more recently a recording of the station’s regular weekday CHR programming. This time, it’s a mixtape taken from the Saturday night show Z-Jam, which featured the finest hard rock and metal that Christian music had to offer at the time. This tape was recorded from one of the very first times I listened to Z-Jam, Feburary 1st 1992. (And actually, I think part of the 2nd side of the tape was recorded the next week, because the 2/1 show ended before the tape ran out). It was the night I finally heard bands that my friends at school had been talking about, like Tourniquet, Bride, and Dig Hay Zoose. Honestly, I wasn’t quite ready for some of this extreme heaviness. I mean… I liked the heavy music a lot, but Guy Ritter’s and Phil Schlotterer’s vocals were a little hard for me to ...

Uncle Eddy’s Mixtapes: Volume 18: A Tribute to Eddy’s Parents

On Christmas day, a friend of mine messaged me, saying that he had been reading my blogs and noticed that there was a subliminal tribute to the music my parents raised me on in the thousands of words I had put on the internet. Actually, his words were something along the lines of: There is a very nice tribute to your parents beneath all the ‘boo hoo hoo, I wasn’t popular in HS’ blog posts. they won’t be alive forever and i hope they know how good they were. Well… he’s right. While there’s a lot of self-absorption in what I have written…my musical tastes and appreciation was undeniably affected by the music my parents listened to and introduced me to when I was a kid… some of the first music I was ever exposed to. For the most part, the music that my parents introduced me to can be summed up in 2 genre/formats: classic country and oldies/rock ‘n’ roll. My most vivid memories are of Dad playing the country music records, tapes, and 8-tracks and my Mom listening to the oldie...

Uncle Eddy’s Very First Mixtape: Made by Cousin Norman

I’ve been excited about posting this mixtape pretty much ever since starting this series. I actually started digitizing it about a year ago, but I ended up putting it off because I found out that the back/B side of the tape had been recorded from the radio in 1991, and I had just published an episode of a tape recorded from radio in that same era. I still wanted to feature the first side of this cassette, because it was the very first mixtape I had ever received or been a part of, and it has somehow survived over 30 years, not being recorded over or eaten by cheap machines. But that second side, recorded almost a decade later than the first, just seemed like it would make the episode seem unbalanced, and it’s taken me months to decide to post it as it is. Like I said, this was one of the earliest tapes I owned. I can’t recall exactly when it was recorded, but I distinctly remember being in my cousin Norman’s house as he showed me how he could record straight from his parents’ s...

Uncle Eddy’s Mixtapes: Volume 15

Back in 2014, I decided to browse Ebay and other corners of the internet to see if I would have any luck locating a particular brand/design of blank cassette tapes I had received when I was a kid. I wrote a bit about what I had recorded onto one of those translucent, rainbow labeled tapes in a previous mixtape episode. I can’t remember what prompted me to try and hunt down these tapes, but I know gobs of nostalgia was involved. I was pleasantly surprised that I actually found a lot of those very Swire Magnetics tapes, unopened new old stock, on Ebay. So naturally I just HAD to purchase them. But… what should/could I do with them when I got them? Then I came up with a brilliant idea… MIXTAPES! I posted on Facebook that I was excited to get the tapes and that I wanted to make mixtapes with them, asking if any FB “friends” still had cassette players and would be interested in getting a mixtape from me. A few folks replied with interest, many of which said they didn’t have a tape ...

Uncle Eddy’s Mixtapes: Songs of Friendship… From a Friend

January 14 is my wife’s birthday. That date also marks the week that Angela Purcell and I first met and started a friendship… that quickly turned into a “relationship”… that eventually turned into marriage. As I recall, we actually met Tuesday January 11, 2000. I won’t bore you with the details, but it began with a long conversation on the phone and ended with me driving 35ish miles to her hometown, so that we could continue the conversation in person. And we’ve hardly had a day apart since then. By her birthday, Friday the 14th, we had developed a strong friendship… maybe already a romance… but we felt it was a little too early to claim/admit to that. That’s why we quickly established the nickname/petname “friend” for each other. It’s also why I called this mix (originally a mix CD) “Songs of Friendship… From a Friend”. Of course, many of the songs implied something a little stronger than “friendship”…which is why the title of the mix was so important… to avoid ...

Uncle Eddy’s Mixtapes Vol. 13: Merrry Christmas from Uncle Eddy

There is quite the variety of opinions and feelings on Christmas/Holiday music. Some people love it all year round while others refuse to listen until December…some just hate it all together. There are those who love the traditional carols and hate the modern songs and there are those who prefer the “classics” they grew up with. I’m definitely in that latter group. Growing up, my parents had a handful of Christmas records… including a couple I didn’t associate specifically with the Holiday and would listen to throughout the year. In the 90s some of my favorite Christian rock artists put out some more modern takes on the carols and classics of the… and I enjoyed some of them. But this mixtape focuses on the classics… those I grew up with and some I’ve discovered in more recent years. Everything I’ve included comes from my vinyl collection… in fact you can hear the pops and crackle of those old scratched records…and most of it predates the 80s (with a couple exceptions…bu...
