Mr. Jason Woodbury joined us in the war room that is the Radio Phoenix Studios and together we hashed out a musical takeover of epic proportions. OK, so that didn’t actually happen but we did discuss local music past and present. He also brought down some killer AZ tracks which we happily played over the internet airwaves and, as always, the complete playlist can be found below.
Now then, make sure to tune in every first and third Wednesday of the month at 7 PM for The YabYum Hour, only on radiophoenix.org.
We’d been wanting Strange Lot to come down to the Radio Phoenix Studios for some time so it was great to have them down in the laboratory mixing it up. We talked the new record, our love of Tucson music, and animated videos. And don’t forget that TONIGHT, March 4, is the Strange Lot + Desert Beats Dual Record Release Party with Snake! Snake! Snakes! and Dead Canyon at Valley Bar!

Brand new band Parlor Birds joined us at the Birdcage, that is, the Radio Phoenix Studios, earlier this month and now the podcast is available for your listening pleasure. We chatted with Mike and Kuhar about the band, what’s coming up, and, as usual, our guests brought along some killer tracks to play on the air. If you like what you hear, check out their second show at Rogue Bar on Saturday, March 4, and tune into the YabYum Music Hour every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month at 7 PM only on Radio Phoenix!
Our regular host, Mark Anderson, came down with a bit of a bug so Senior Editor (and button pusher for the YabYum Music Hour on Radio Phoenix) declared it a Ladies Night with The Sturdy Ladies. Roddy was on-hand to help out and The Sturdy Ladies’ brought some stellar tunes to share. You can find the complete playlist below along with the podcast of our live show.
At the end of year, in preface to our Annual Awards, the YabYum Editors like to take a moment and play their favorite tracks from all the Arizona bands and artists that left an impression on them. This is that show, the 2016 Awards preview. No guests. No witty banter. Just kick-ass jams. Enjoy!
PS. Thanks to everyone who came out to our 2016 Awards show at the Trunk Space, it meant a lot!
PSS. That sound is Scott taking pics in the background…
Travis James showed up with a crew when he came down to the Radio Phoenix studios. We talked all his current projects, Slope Records, and what’s upcoming for mohawked troubadour. Plus, he brought a ton of great tracks including some that can be heard no where else (for now)! As always, you can check out the complete playlist below.
Red Tank! came down to the Radio Phoenix studios and we had a blast talking up music and bands. We chatted about the wall of noise, new songs, and snowed-out tours. And, of course, they brought along some stellar tracks that we were jazzed to play and, as always, the complete playlist can be found below.
The SunPunchers joined us at the Radio Phoenix studios on a most tremendous of nights. At one point we thought the station might actually combust into flames. OK, maybe it wasn’t quite that dramatic, but it sure was a swell time hanging out with Betsy and Lindsay and listening to the great song selections they picked out. Listen to the podcast and check out the complete playlist below And don’t forget to keep your ears open for that new album from The SunPunchers next year!!
Earlier this month Maryvale’s own Citrus Clouds joined us in the Radio Phoenix Studios for another edition of Rise.
