Hey, I recognized two artists' names on your list. Angel Olsen is pretty famous, and This Is the Kit I saw open for The National a few years back. It's a rare enough occurrence I needed to underline it.

Two out of thirty ain’t bad! winking smiley

Ten of the thirty artists from last night’s show had already been featured at least once in recent prior broadcasts, leaving twenty artists I had never heard before but piqued my interest enough to give them a spin... cool smiley

The Atomic Bitchwax are a high energy stoner rock trio that's incestuously related to Monster Magnet - I've seen them a couple of times. They're pretty kick-ass if you're into that sort of thing.

I saw the Lemon Twigs at a festival a few years ago - basically a mildly psychedelic power pop band with glam tendencies. I dug 'em a lot live (and was surprised to discover the two brothers at the heart of it were still teenagers), but was less compelled by their records. They have a new one that's supposed to be awesome, but I haven't heard it.

The Mommyheads made some indie records, then one album for Geffen, in the 90s. They recently reunited and have been pretty active since. Good, solid, guitar-based indie rock.

And that's all I know (besides Ms. Olsen).

Four out of thirty is still good odds, especially if you’re hungry for ‘new music’ like I am.

I like to think of ‘InTransition’ as a two hour sampler of the best that’s come down the pipe since the last show’s broadcast. Familiar names may crop up occasionally, but the main thrust is trying to present “tomorrow’s hits, today” with no regard for yesterday and no time for repeats.

I may not be much of a host during these COVID times, but give a listen as I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by what’s on offer...

I think it's great that I'm not familiar with most of these folks. I always have my ears open.

This is going to keep me in giggles for the rest of the day.

So...liar, flower. I heard about them a month or so ago and checked it out. Very interesting stuff. Not entirely up my alley or something I'd listen to repeatedly, but worth checking out.

And since we're counting, I recognize 7 artists, but I couldn't tell you anything about 4 of them. Just know the names.

Liar, Flower turns out to be fronted by KatieJane Garside, who I remember from her time in Daisy Chainsaw back in the early 90s. A quick glance at the Interwebs reveals a reasonably prolific career since that I was totally unaware of... eye popping smiley

I see I missed Chelsea Wolfe being in there, and I assume H.C. McEntire is Heather McEntire, former leader of Mount Moriah. And Oh Sees is Thee Oh Sees, I guess? A band I've seen a couple of times and have wanted to like more than I actually like. At least back then (we're talking probably 10 years ago) - I loved their onstage energy, but when I listened to their records it was like the same song over and over again with a different title.

By the way, my comment about only recognizing two names was not criticism, on the contrary. I'm fascinated that there's a whole musical universe out there that I do not normally have any interaction with. I'm not seeking new music as actively as I was a few decades ago, but I'm glad it's still being made. It just doesn't percolate out anymore.

I finally had a chance to listen to the program, and I must say there's some excellent music.
