June Beckons Great Summer

June Beckons Great Summer


Posted on May 30, 2014

When looking for a phrase, this came to mind: “May you live long and stay well.” It’s almost a Spock-like, “live long and prosper,” but not quite. Since my family roots are in the soil of the Scottish Highlands, I’ve learned lots of “colorful language,” to use a term of art. Yet the Scots translation of “May you live long…” looks almost like a curse! “Lang may yer lum reek!” Perhaps meditating on the meaning of “lum” while in our zero-gravity chamber will give me a new perspective. It usually does! play pause mute unmute max...

Armed Forces Day, 2014


Posted on May 17, 2014

Armed Forces Day, 2014 and the US continues to be embroiled in wars far from our shores.

“Rock n roll, blues n soul” is our mantra! Naturally, we play John Mayall, Gregg Allman and their bands set for the Avila Beach Blues Festival on the 25th. In fact, there is no other Central Coast station playing more Mayall, Gregg Allman or Trombone Shorty. If you know of one, please send a short email alert to: rockettownradio (at) gmail (dot) com.

Cool Tunes For Temps In The 90’s!

Cool Tunes For Temps In The 90’s!


Posted on May 13, 2014

Yes, the atmospheric upper-level low has turned the Central Coast temps upside down! Now roasting in the upper 90’s and expected to cool off sometime next year. OK, not next year, but the heat is expected to dissipate by the time the weekend rolls around. All this time, you can trust your Rocket Town Radio “almost out-of-control room” to be stable and cool enough for an ice cream cone. Or a beverage on ice! Take a listen to our noontime pilot, Greg Cavanaugh, Monday through Friday. He’s always getting the next best music flight plan together for you. Followed at 10am on Saturdays by “Trick” Matthews piloting your mid-morning and afternoon until 3pm. Rocket Town Radio plays rock n roll, blues n soul for the Central Coast and beyond! play pause mute unmute max...
