I have been spinning Victory Soul Orchestra on my show at RadioradioX since I started here. The music is fun and undoubtedly danceable. I hate comparing groups to others but I certainly intend this to be a compliment, VSO has the talent of The Roots with more brass instrumentation. And… to top it off bringing […]

A few weeks ago I was on S. Pearl Street, just a few blocks away from a deadly shooting that occurred. That same young shooter was linked to another shooting that almost got a close friend of mine shot. About a week ago a friend of the family was gunned down in Cohoes, he (Tyshawn […]

Celeste Plowden has such a way about her writing style that you are often left wondering if she herself actually had experienced what she writes about; even if it defies what we assume to be impossible. RRX: Many may know you as an artist and I know you can sing too but today we are […]

You may have even driven or walked by a mural or two that she has painted. I (Rob Smittix) have been waiting for the opportunity to speak […]

“You may have seen him walking around Downtown Albany or perhaps even Troy. He’s the guy wearing headphones, singing aloud with a smile and a dance in his step. I met him riding the 522 CDTA express on my way to work last summer. It was a crowded morning bus and I see this guy […]

Girth Control wasn’t necessarily supposed to happen but then again neither was penicillin; I guess you could call it a happy accident. The guys that make up Girth Control are actually three fourths of the still very active punk-Americana group, The Slaughterhouse Chorus. When lead vocalist and guitarist Chris had to take a break, Jay […]
