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. Not only did they bring some tracks off their new record, Imagination, they brought along some stellar picks of artists they enjoy as well. Make sure and head to Valley Bar on Nov. 2 to catch the Imagination Release Party when the music will start at 7:30 PM. More on that event here.
The Declaimed joined us at the Radio Phoenix studios at the Phoenix Center for the Arts at the beginning of the month and now we have to the podcast available for your listening pleasure. They brought along some feisty tracks, all local AZ bands, and dropped some serious knowledge about our thrash punk scene in the state. Believe us, these hoodlums know a thing or two when it comes to music. And, as we come to find out through the course of the show, they’re all big cuddly teddy bears underneath their rough exteriors. Listen to the show and check out the complete playlist below.
The electro indie pop hop duo known as MRCH joined us at the Radio Phoenix studios back in September for our latest addition of Rise.

Check the complete playlist below and make sure to catch them on Nov. 1 at Valley Bar!
Those zany Krovak punx joined us live in the Radio Phoenix studio at the Phoenix Center for the Arts for a supremely rowdy edition of Rise. Tales were told of breaking windows and breaking bones.
