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.
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!
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.

Mike Scott is one of the finest British songwriters of the past four decades and with the Waterboys has released such classic albums as This is the Sea and Fisherman’s Blues.

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.
This is long, a bit sloppy but ultimately a lot fun…TWSS (the running joke of the evening.) Recorded at a house concert in the Fox Den in Piedmont, this podcast features live tunes and some hilarious conversation with Bay Area acts Lapel and Static and Surrender.
Debbie Neigher, along with various supporting members, is Lapel, a dreamy synth-pop band that blew us away. It was nice to deviate a bit from our standard acoustic rock/folk/Americana format and we urge everyone to check out their debut album “Periphery.”
Static and Surrender frontman Jeff Campbell has been a longtime friend of Renee and Irish Greg dating back to the KFOG years. His latest project Static and Surrender has him teaming up with brothers Adam and John Schuman, a trio that write effortless songs with beautiful harmonies. In between jello shots and irreverent banter the trio managed to squeeze in exquisite covers of Bowie, STP and the Zombies along with a bunch of originals.
