Bruce’s ‘Bucket of Tunes’ show (some 4000+ tunes curated by him over the last ten years) will continue to air on JiveRadio in it’s normal time slot (6-9a M-F) for the life of JiveRadio.
THE ETERNAL PHILOSOPHY OF THE BVD BUCKET RADIO SHOW– [from BVD early ’22] I would have to say that the main guiding principle that underlies my morning rave-ups heard every weekday morning would be Surprise Surprise! That is to say…..let’s try and keep it musically unpredictable. I found out a few years ago that there really is no substitute for the element of Surprise in the flow of a musical radio show. Nothing kills the buzz like predictability! Presented as a musical formula, the main mojo of my show can be described as Kinks + Coltrane + Kool n the Gang + k.d. lang oughta make up an interesting set of some sort!
So if a morning show that moves from some funky jazz to some saucy rock to some down home country to some blatant great old hits (i gotta sweet spot for super catchy old trash!) and always strives to keep you on your toes is your cuppa jive……join me and my hard-workin’ boss jock Randy Shuffle (he loves flyin’ blind) every Monday through Friday morning from 6-9 to get yourself rollin’ in a most schizoclectic way. later!

HOW GRATUITOUS IS YOUR ECHO?
These started out as laughing larks back in the spring of ’21, and somehow, mainly under the influence of my oh so wicked local dispensary, they turned into a murder of oddball pterodactyls. i refer, of course, to the programs known as Gratuitous Echo, a curious cluster of what was gonna be a 10-part series of shows, but ended up being a clump of 27 one hour forays into the windmills of your mind. Featuring a collection of astrophysical tunes plus some of the corniest and gratuitous dj echo abuse ever broadcast, GE is a show designed to be your sidekick on a slacker Saturday night, when you’re in your fave comfy chair, in your candlelit listening room, perhaps bedecked in headphones, beverage topped off just right, and you ready to see where the magic carpet ride will get to tonight.
Thanks to the miracle of modern digital technology, here are all 27 GEs presented for your listening pleasure, to be enjoyed when you feel like it. have a super time, and i hope you enjoy the heck out of them. ta ta! (ta ta…….ta ta………ta ta………..ta ta………..to infinity………..)
