Boogie Back To Texas


Perfect opening and closing songs.  Everything between wasn’t bad either!

It’s interesting that hearing each tune played by another made me appreciate it more and reminded me what it is about each that I love. 

Eric Taylor: “Heard a dead man say he wished he felt the other way.” Actually, every line is masterful. 

McMurtry: “She lost her mind and she never missed it.”

Ray Wylie: “Why’d you go and rob a liquor store?”
“Well your honor, it’s hard to live in Dallas when you’re white trash and poor.”

So many poets in Texas music. 

Thank you, Geoff. Great show. I enjoyed every choice and all your conversation. You’re really, really good at radio hosting.

Veterans Day Show
Hello Voice of Vashon,
I just wanted to sincerely, thank you for the wonderful Veterans Day show. It was so fitting to play music for our veterans and to learn more about them through the music and the stories.
Thank you!

Great Thursday Morning Scramble!
Your Newport Pop Festival broadcast today was awesome! It brought back great memories of the concert and of listening to rock during the 60s. It was extra fun listening to the trivia you researched regarding the different groups. As an aside, I missed the Airplane at Newport but saw them at a concert in San Bernardino 1967. They were terrible. The cover band was far superior. It was obvious Grace Slick, and possibly other band members, were stoned Thanks again for the great show. It made my week.

Greetings from Greece!
I was an Everett and Seattle resident back in the late 70s and early to mid 80s. It’s so good to see community radio flourishing as it has been with KVSH-LP 101.9 FM which I am listening to at the moment. I would really love to get a chance one day to visit Vashon Island although I reside quite far away for many years now.
Thanks and keep up all the good local work and contribution!!!

Craig and Mike,
Absolutely amazing shows. Love the facts you guys have behind the artist and the music. See you both next month.
Thanks for the play. The two of you guarantee a big smile and allot of laughs. Craig, watch out for drones Weds with all your birthday gifts coming in from Amazon.

I tuned into this afternoon’s REALTalk (aptly named) segment and found the discussion and sharing to not only be informative but inspiring.
As always, Susan McCabe facilitated the conversation with insightful questions and things to talk about. Each of the guests from the Black Prisoners Caucus – Grady Mitchell, Willie Nobles, and Cyril Walrond – seemed to be so open with their experiences before, during, and after having long prison sentences. Their current collaborative work is certainly something to be lauded.
So big thanks to Susan, her guests, and the VOV for providing this important listen.

Alternative Vashon
Hey Bill Reid,
You continue to do a great job with Alternative Vashon! I love the hour slot and makes me feel like Im back in the 90s again. Love that I can stream the ones I missed while driving home from work.
Keep it up Bill!

Hello Geoff,
You’ve delivered some sunshine to me in the midst of the cold northeast winter here! I love the concept and meaning of the Fletchie Awards and I’m honored to receive one for Salvation.
I’ll look forward to clicking on that link and hearing your show. Thank you so much!
