We are having such a good time being back on the air spending our late night sunday nights with all of you out there listening here or on wxna, the show will just keep getting more & more fun. Kicked stuff off this week with a couple more bands that impressed us live, Rozwell Kid & PkewPkewPkew were great opening up for PUP over the weekend, and the crowd was even better, one of the most pits we've been in this town for sure, from opening band til last note. Nashville is a great place for punk & rock and we have the local bands to prove it as well, so check out this episode, check out a mindblowing piece of record art over at the @VisibleVinyl twitter this week, and of the course the @NashRockCity twitter too for all your getting out and getting some rock needs.

We love rocking out & we love our listeners, so let's have some fun together now that we're back!

Originally broadcast Live on FM Radio in Nashville. ..wonder if we'll ever get to use that header again. The radio station we spin Loud Love on every week for the people of Nashville, WRVU 91.1FM is no more. It was sold off in an unbelievably shady, underhanded, and foolhardy way and the signal that was Nashville's only choice for free-form music that might not be heard anywhere else for nearly 60 years was cut off without warning, or even a chance for a final sign-off, at 2:30 PM, 6/7/11. WPLN, an NPR affiliate purchased it to make a 24/7 classical music station so that they could focus on only talk radio. Before we broadcasted this week's show that you are listening to now, word was leaked that the call letters had been secretly changed. As this was the obvious death knell that the fight to save WRVU that we now know never stood a chance, (The sale was made anyways over the objections of thousands, the money-raising efforts of a non-profit organization, and logic.) the episode you are hearing tonight may feature us nearly dripping with sarcasm as we struggled to maintain professionalism in the face of such obvious disrespect, and in fear that this might be our final broadcast. That it did turn out to be, without letting us know, is a tragedy we won't soon get over. However this WILL NOT be the end of Loud Love. We are already making plans to land our feet, begin talking to other radio stations, and expanding our affiliations with the online music magazine www.sinizine.net . There will likely be a break of just a couple weeks here on Loud Love as we evaluate our options, speak to friends and advisors in the business, and work out a new plan of action, but rest assured, we'll let you know here first and there WILL be more Loud Love coming to listen to on a regular basis. We love all you listeners so much and hope you enjoy rocking as much as we do, so download this week's episode, turn it up loud, share it with your friends, mourn WRVU and the state of non-mainstream music on radio in general, and get ready, cause even as this was our last show broadcasting for this radio station, we don't back down, and you'll get over 20 songs in one hour of killer punk rock, some tidbits of knowledge, and barely controlled rage. Enjoy! And we'll see you again real soon. (Oh and you'll just have to follow along the playlist as we announce them on the audio, as they've already killed WRVU's archives and website as well.) Make sure you're still with us over at Twitter @NashRockCity and at www.sinizine.net/shows and you won't miss a beat on the coolest rock going on in Nashville... you just won't be able to hear it on the radio anymore. As an added bonus, here is the official last song ever played on the venerable WRVU 91.1FM in Nashville. Amazingly fitting and haunting.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBAujZTTV3o
Originally broadcast Live on FM Radio in Nashville. You demanded it, we got it. We were lucky enough to have another band in studio with us this week that will be playing the Loud Love Benefit for WRVU this Sunday at The Muse. That's right, Nashville favorites (even if they've been away from home touring a bit lately) Gnarwhal! One of the raddest bands around with the raddest name, just released a new album for everyone to check out called Duane. You'll be able to pick up a copy at the show on Sunday night, when you're done listening to them, and the 5 other outstanding bands that will be playing in support of keeping WRVU on the Nashville airwaves. That's the killer cover art for the album at the top of this post, painted by Nashville's own Cam Baechle. If you can't make it to the show, well, they'll be playing some more, or get in touch and see if you can't get your hands on a copy. We definitely have some fun in the studio this week, like to thank the guys from Gnarwhal again for coming in, as well as playing the benefit show, even though (K)Evan is unfortunately, dead. By tuning in this week you can also find out the many corporations and popular musicians supported by the band! Seriously, download this week's episode now, but sorry, you already missed out on the webcam action. The Benefit show, of course, is this coming Sunday, April 3rd, over at The Muse in Nashville. In case you've been living under a rock, scroll down to last week's episode to check out the event poster, and tune in this week as we play tracks from nearly all of the bands that will be playing the show, along with a bunch off Gnarwhal's new record! We'd love to see everyone out there, helping us support free-form radio in Nashville, as well as getting to see an absolutely stacked show for the ridiculously low price of a $5 minimum donation. If for some unfortunate reason you can't make it to Nashville this weekend, there's still hope! The Muse website ( themusenashville.com ) will be live-streaming the concert, so park yourself in front of a computer by 8pm CST and don't leave until we do! For real, it's gonna be so good, but don't just take our word for it.. http://www.wrvu.org/?p=826 http://www.nashvillescene.com/nashville/loud-love-save-wrvu-benefit-feat-the-legend-black-patch-gnarwhal-evan-p-donohue-diarrhea-planet-flesh-vehicle-and-r-stevie-moore/Event?oid=2342968 http://sinizine.net/uncategorized/2011/03/loud-loves-benefit-for-wrvu/ http://nashvillesdead.com/2011/03/30/the-loudest-love/ etc., etc. and of course.. www.savewrvu.com Thanks again to all the bands and friend helping promote this, and to everyone who we see out on Sunday night!

Who's gonna win this weekend, the Stackers or the Peelers?
Jim Morrison and the Commodoors of Perception?
It's a real special episode this week, as we were lucky enough to have the legendary R. Stevie Moore in studio with us to talk everything from Nashville to New Jersey, home recording and DIY, to free-form radio and the major role he played in it as an on-air DJ back in the very early days of New Jersey's famed WFMU 91.1. Not only talk though, as R. Stevie Moore and Mr. Roger Ferguson played live and acoustic a bunch of tracks, including material from the upcoming album being worked on right now. Hear these performances and love them? You can still be a part of the aforementioned album by heading over to the oft-mentioned http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rstvmo/r-stevie-moore

Trust us, you don't want to miss this episode. R. Stevie Moore has roughly umpteenbillion albums to his name, most home-recorded and produced and published to cassette by himself and his own label, and really kicked off the DIY ethos that was to gain so much traction later on when the punk movement hit in the early 70s, and today with the decline of major label music and the onset of tons of self-published album through ProTools and GarageBand, Audacity and the internet and the like. R. Stevie Moore was doing it without the tools consistently since the 60s, only now you'll see more albums on CD than Cassette tape. His vinyl albums are still much sought after and hard to come by, and his work on WFMU really set the tone for free-form as something to aspire to. But most importantly, it's an interesting and fun 2 hours of good times and talk, and great music, including these live in studio performances from a once, and current, Nashville local.

Thanks again to R. Stevie Moore, Roger Ferguson, and Eric Andre who made this happen and also filmed the studio sessions. Keep your eyes peeled as we'll have some video for you as well from the Live Loud Love Sessions as soon as we can. Until then, take the audio here, listen, download, subscribe, enjoy, and go check out R. Stevie Moore- both online, and live in concert Fri, Feb 4th, at Mercy Lounge with Deerhoof.
And tune back in next Monday Night (or afterwards right here) for more Loud Love, heading back to the normal punk rock and hardcore format, with possibly another special guest in the studio with us! So stay tuned, and turn it up.
