Age Nowhere with a Special Uncle Tupelo Cover!

Age Nowhere surprised Dr. J with a cover of ‘New Madrid’ from Uncle Tupelo’s last record Anodyne. The Jeff Tweedy penned song references The New Madrid fault which is south of St. Louis where Uncle Tupelo members Jeff Tweedy, Jay Farrar and Mike Heidorn grew up. The band hailed from Belleville Illinois which is across the river from St. Louis. The New Madrid fault is the location of one of the most powerful earthquakes in the United States. The line about rivers running backwards is taken from a result of the massive earthquake in 1812. Another line in the song was based on a prediction made by Browning that predicted a massive earthquake would strike the fault and surrounding area in 1990.

Allow us to set a scene. Imagine stepping in for a drink at a bar where Sticky Fingers era Keith Richards is hanging out with his Nudie Cohen Suit wearing pal Graham Parsons and a world weary Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes. They are all sitting in a booth commenting on the passing musical fancies of the day. That is the experience of Age Nowhere! Imagine a true double guitar attack from Identical-twin brothers Matt and Dan Spaugy paired with smoky evocative lyrics sung by Paul Monin propelled by driving drums from Seth Gilliam and pounding bass of Matt Terry. That is the experience of Age Nowhere.The band takes it’s nom de plume from one of the standout tracks on Dayton’s own Shrug‘s 2005 record ‘Whole Hog For The Macho Jesus.’

Hey there Music Fans!

Dr. J is now part of the Reveal Radio family!  Your Tuesday Afternoon Alternative will do an Internet radio program every Wednesday from 2-5pm Eastern Time zone followed by our good friend Gretchen Kelly’s ‘In The Rough’ radio show!  What could be more punk than a Tuesday show on Wednesday?  We could not be happier about collaborating with an effort focused on music in all genres, formats and approaches.

Reveal Radio began in 2012 as a radio show created by musician. Producer, Sound Technician Rob Puricelli.  From Rob’s efforts to connect listeners to interesting, fun and new music, Radio Pure Gently was born.  RPG’s mission was to embrace music in all of its forms.  The approach was simple: recognize the influence of the classic performers in popular music while encouraging exploration of new music across genres.

From RPG, Reveal launched in 2017.  The focus is on music.  Period.  Presenters create the playlists not any corporate behemoth as is all too common.  The DJs play what interests and moves them.  At Reveal, there are presenters and hosts with varied musical ideas from all around the world broadcasting 24/7 online because they are committed to exploring music.  No agendas, which will be refreshing, right?

Reveal’s more well-known shows include Friday Night Live with Rob Puricelli, Synthetix Sundays with Marko Maric, Soiree 80s, The Diamond Field Radio Show with Andy Diamond, The Things That Dreams Are Made of with Daniel X. Belasco as well as the regular Thursday show.

You can now hear YTAA on Tuesdays at WUDR (online & 99.5/98.1fm) from 3-6pm Eastern and a freewheeling fun online version on Wednesdays from 2-5pm on Reveal.  Join us for one show or heck, maybe both.  See you on Tuesdays and Wednesdays!
