I am not sure what will happen but due to some bad decisions on my part, I'm in a real bad spot. I hope things turn around but just in case, I'm posting the rest of the Birdcage shows today.

I think I will record a 22nd show at some point.....but for now, here are the final episodes of the Birdcage 2019. 








It's been a labor of love doing these shows. I hope in some small way I make you smile as you listen and enjoy them........just know that I am very grateful for your support over the years. Thank you!

For those of us who have lost their mom, this is always a hard day. But we all love our moms and I hope that my mom knows just how much I miss her.

I tried to do a live stream last night on Facebook but some very powerful record companies decided that I wasn't allowed to use their music. So, it was a good idea but I can't afford to tick off anyone. In fact, I can't afford anything right now.

If I can find a way to do it without getting anyone in trouble, I'll let ya know.

Episode 14 includes the following artists:

The Cure
Echo & The Bunnymen
The Fixx
Figures on a Beach
Haircut 100
Robert Hazard
A Tribute to Paris NY
Adam & The Ants
Gerard Blanchard
Wayne/Jane County & The Electric Chairs

One of the things I miss about Long Island is leaving a club after 4am and on the way home, stopping off at the bagel place off the LI Expressway. You buy a dozen and get 13 hot bagels. They were so good.

Normally, I'd have something clever or informative to put here. Currently, I got nothing.

WAIT! I can't believe that I forgot. Tonight's show is for Alex. WELCOME HOME!

Sorry......I'm a very proud GATOR DAD

For now, here are the artists included in episode thirteen:

Three Doors Down
The Wallflowers
The Gin Blossoms
The Black Crows
David Bowie & Nine Inch Nails
Tim Scott
The Ramones
The Go Gos
The Psychedelic Furs
The Tubes

I have never been able to understand hate so strong that one decides to kill people who are in the middle of praying to God. Yesterday's shooting is another in a long string of killings all over the world.

This is not a political issue. It's not religion. It's just plain evil. I don't have any answers for you. I can only offer love. The human race has so much to be thankful for, to celebrate. We have come so far.....but evil is still an issue we can't seem to control. With all of our, art, music......we still have no answer for evil.

I wish to dedicate tonight's show to all those who choose love over hate.

Episode twelve includes the following artists:

Iggy Pop
Joe Jackson
The Psychedelic Furs
The Primitives
Public Image Limited
Souixsie & the Banchees
Captain Sensible
Rod Stewart & Jeff Beck
The Undertones
Tim Scott
The Prodigy
The B52s
They Might Be Giants

As we celebrate religious holidays, families gather to share messages of love and faith. With the advancement of human intelligence and technology it appears that we still have much to learn about living together in peace. We are capable of creating such wonderful music and art.........yet hate and evil continue to grab headlines, death and destruction at the hands of humans claiming their religion somehow makes it OK.

Since my message of peace and love will fall on deaf ears I can at least offer an hour of music here in the Birdcage. The fictitious Nigel of Spinal Tap fame claims his amp goes to eleven. Listen to this episode at louder. The last set is dedicated to Carleen who was a pioneer DJ as one of the famous Bondage Babies. I am forever grateful for her introducing me to so many great bands.

Episode eleven features the following artists;

Siouxsie & the Banshees
Iggy Pop
The Boomtown Rats
The Talking Heads
Depeche Mode
Modern English
A Flock of Seagulls
A Tribute to Carleen of the Bondage Babies at Paris New York
Suicidal Tendencies
Black Flag
The Cramps
The Dead Kennedys
