Re: “Growing Old with Moz

Oh shit!

I forgot about how great Minor Threat and Black Flag were.

Re: “Growing Old with Moz

The Clash and The Smiths were both highly overrated.

The Misfits and Dead Kennedys were a lot more exciting.

Don't even get me started on how dull The Ramones and Sex Pistols actually were.

Re: “Know Your Product: Miss Olivia

Fantastic performer who reels in a crowd with her voice. Definitely a person to keep in mind when going out on the town for live music. Have listened to her a few times around town. Che's, Saint Charles Tavern and Second Saturday's downtown.

Re: “Battle Acts: Elton John vs. Kinky Boots

No contest.

This one goes to one of the greatest piano players in Rock 'n' Roll history.

Elton John, hands down.

Re: “Noise Annoys: Desert Beats

Well written, Levine! I would only add that there's a hefty dose of Thirteenth Floor Elevators and Birthday Party era Nick Cave in the mix, in addition to the Screamin' Jay Hawkins comparison.

Re: “What’s in Store: Chicago Music Store

The instrument repair person "Mike" repaired my violin and three guitars. They had been attic stored for 17-40 years and the 40+ year stored violin needed serious help. Mike did nice work for a very reasonable price that my senior citizen budget could handle. I recommend either of their stores for repair assistance or purchase of instruments. If they don't have what you need just ask and the staff will get it for you. Mark, the owner, is at the 6th Ave. Store and will go out of his way to help you. Stop in for a visit and say hello.............Norm

Re: “Know Your Product: Geoff Tate

And it's him, not hime. But really, who cares? Tate is done, proof is you announcing that "he's bringing the show to this one-horse town". 'Nuff said.

Re: “Noise Annoys

While it would be great if everyone in the music world were beyond the "women who rock" trope at this point in time, I think accusing the station of trashing or "pimping" them is a bit heavy handed.

The folks at Downtown Radio put a ton of passion, love and sweat into the station - almost all of us on a volunteer basis, and nobody is "making a profit" off anyone. We play a ton of local music, because we love it and think it's great and we feel like it deserves to be heard on the radio.

We are always honored as hell when any of these bands/artists play one of our featured shows or benefits, as most of them have repeatedly done.

If they really "need us less than we need them" that's great news for everyone. And super generous of them. I'd love it if local acts were always getting the recognition they deserve, whether in print or over the airwaves. I know you as a writer do your part to help make this happen. As a DJ, I try to do my part as well.

But whether they need me or not, I'm still playing these bands on Downtown Radio. Not for "exposure" or because they are women. Because they're GOOD and if I want to hear them, I'm betting my listeners want to hear them too.

Re: “Noise Annoys

Just when I thought the TWeakly couldn't get any worse, along comes once-fired Josh Levine to offer up some amateur, bloggy bile. Writers should check their facts, look into the history, and talk to people involved in the event before making assumptions especially weak, inaccurate ones.

Contrary to the assumption Levine makes, The Women Who Rock Tucson II show is not a benefit for Downtown Radio. The artists will be paid.

Additionally, the first Women Who Rock Tucson was put together and named by a female musician. There was no 2nd edition in 2016 because I would have had to do it and I was way too busy running the station at the time.

The article on the website that you refer to was also written by a woman.

How Levine could twist a celebration of women in the local music scene into the toxic scenario that he describes reflects entirely on him.

The women involved in this event are fantastic, talented musicians. I genuinely love their music and am glad that we have a scene here in Tucson that encourages women to be a part of it.

Levine and the Tucson Weekly owe Downtown Radio a big apology for printing this garbage.
