String Theory Returns Tonight!

String Theory Episode 017 promo

Greetings String Theorists! Well, I had promised you the Scott Henderson interview tonight, but I have been so busy grading final exams and surfing (huh?!), that I’ve not yet edited the Scott interview. Scott was very generous with his time; we stayed on the line for over two hours. I will bring you that interview on the next show, in two weeks.

Instead, tonight’s show will be an eclectic mix of virtuoso guitarists and bassists.

It all starts at midnight tonight, Pacific Time! Check it out:


If you miss the show, never fear, I’ll post the archive later this week.

Thanks for listening. And spread the word!


Allan Holdsworth Radio Tribute

Allan Holdsworth Radio Tribute

Friends, the Allan Holdsworth Radio Tribute is now posted. Check it out.

I’ve been a fan of Allan Holdsworth since the Velvet Darkness days. When Allan passed away last year, I (like thousands of guitar player across the globe) was crestfallen. At that point I had not yet launched the String Theory radio show, but was subbing for other DJs on our local community radio station KZFR 90.1 FM, in Chico, Ca. I thought: What better way to honor his legacy than to do a radio show tribute to Allan Holdsworth? A few months later, String Theory—the radio show for virtuosic guitar music—was born.

LA Studio King Michael Thompson Interview tonight on String Theory!

Greetings String Theorists!

String Theory returns tonight featuring an interview with LA studio giant and tone god Michael Thompson. The Michael Thompson Band (MTB) has returned to the studio to produce their first album in many years, and we will premiere on our very airwaves a few tracks off the new album! All that, plus the usual cast of virtuosic guitarists.

It all starts at midnight tonight, Pacific Time.


Coming soon, interview with Scott Henderson.

Thanks for listening. And spread the word!
