George Maida, host of The Electric Croude, once again celebrates International Guitar Month in April on 88.9 WCVE. Be sure to tune in Saturday nights at 10:00 p.m. during the month for a variety of special guests, interviews and musical offerings.

A Heart Warmer for Third Season: An Interview with Dave Thompson

If not for Dave Thompson’s new book, Fire and Wine-An Armchair Guide to Steve AshleyI dare say an important part of English music history might well be lost. For decades I’ve enjoyed the writing and singing of Steve--and have been honored to have him on The Electric Croude twice--most recently during last December.

Vinyl-ly Yours

In an age where people are so concerned about being green...less care is devoted to the care and feeding of your brain--especially as concerns music. The human body can react in very different ways to MP3s, .wav files, CDs and the once forsaken black platter--also known as the 331/3 rpm record.

I’ve done A/B comparisons with CDs/vinyl... more often than not, digital re-mastering takes away from the visceral impact of music.
