Greg Loiacono

It’s always a treat to connect with our old pal Greg Loiacono and, coupled with a wonderful new Stanley Mouse exhibit at the Haight Street Art Center, we enjoyed a lovely evening of music, art and conversation.

Greg played a few new tunes from his upcoming album, talked about life as a solo artist, his main gig with the Mother Hips and his side squeeze with Chris Robinson and the Green Leaf Rustlers.

From his first gigs with the legendary Mother Hips all the way up to his recent debut solo album, ‘Songs From A Golden Dream,’ Greg Loiacono has always been driven by one unwavering desire: to connect. In music, he found a direct conduit to the soul, a miraculous means by which to inspire and unite, and it’s guided him like a compass throughout his remarkable career. Whether Loiacono’s fronting a band, guesting with peers like Phil Lesh or Chris Robinson, or onstage by himself, it’s all part of a never-ending quest to generate and celebrate the magic of shared human experience.

Rainbow Girls

We had such a blast at the Haight Street Art Center recording our latest show with the fabulous Rainbow Girls. They played a bunch of originals and a few choice covers including a wonderful version of “Stayin’ Alive.” In addition we passed the hat and raised some cash for Moms 4 Housing

Our next FREE show is with  Greg Loiacono of the Mother Hips and Green Leaf Rustlers on Saturday, February 22nd at the Haight Street Art Center. Tickets HERE!

Megan Slankard & Skillet Licorice

With the demise of KFOG we thought we’d continue the Holiday tradition of Concert for Kids, the station’s annual charity show that raised money for children’s charities in addition to collecting toys and books for those that might otherwise go without.

Thanks to both Megan Slankard and openers Skillet Licorice for providing the wonderful soundtrack to a lovely evening at the Haight Street Art Center. We raised a ton of money for the Blue Bear School of Music and collected a boatload of goodies for the The San Francisco Firefighters Toy Program.

Join us for our next show on January 17th!

Poor Man’s Whiskey

Poor Man’s Whiskey will play their Farewell for Now show at the Fillmore along with the Sam Chase & the Untraditional, Friday Nov 29th. They stopped by the Haight Street Art Center recently to talk about the hiatus, perform a few tunes and share some laughs with a SOLD OUT audience.

KFOG Morning Show Reunion

When KFOG finally died earlier this month we thought it would be fun to get the band back together for one last reunion show at Magnolia Brewing on 3rd Street in San Francisco.

Dave, Peter, Renee and Greg with special guests Rosalie Howarth and Chuck Prophet gathered with about 200 Fogheads for a truly unforgettable night of storie, laughter and music. This was by no means a funeral, more like a party to celebrate a truly unique radio station that clearly meant a lot to many, many people.

We think this podcast captures the energy and fun of the evening and thank everyone who made it possible.

With a vast collection of 10@10’s, live performances and interviews, the spirit of KFOG and the morning show will live on forever on Renee & Irish Greg’s patreon page where your support is greatly appreciated.
