Sublime vs. Beatles With A Little Help From Sublime

Sorry folks, but I have to cut this short, got a late call from work and I'm working a double shift tomorrow, my only bright spot is that I can catch the last part of +Sean Cowen's regular Friday gig when I get home...

Your working like a dog host, +Andrew Coffman

Nirvana vs. No Doubt Don't Speak About A Girl

As the years go by there is an inevitible blending of what band had their high points and when, first you go by years and then by decades.

Both these songs are 20 plus years old, so a little gap of 6 years in original release dates can be forgiven, especially when they sound so good you don't need a video to go with them.

Your curve ball ladie's league manager, +Andrew Coffman

The Allman Brothers Full Concert at Fillmore East September 23, 1970

Many of our DJs strive to put as much emphasis on matching the video to a great song, but for tonight I defer to catching a glimpse of a legendary band at the peak of their chemistry with a lineup that can never be repeated.

Many people dream of time machines to be at moments like these, and can be overcome when they finally get to see something like this when they never expected to find it.

Your not playing a long song to go out and smoke lying host, +Andrew Coffman

Avicii v. Journey Don't Stop Levels (Project 46 Mashup)

As the years go on and I tire of sifting through the auto tuned and over produced dreck that passes for top 40 music I hear everywhere outside my own music playing devices, I find that I'm drawn to the people that practice musical Gomi

I especially enjoy it when the remixers and mashers dredge up two or more very separate memories and make something new out of the refuse in my emotional wasteland.

Your all remixed up host, +Andrew Coffman

Some mashups are good and others not so good. This one is OK

Primus Tommy The Cat

Everyone has a small collection of pivotal years, those points where so many things happen at once in a short span that every other year blurs by in comparison. Heck I still find myself writing the date as 1991 by mistake every so often.

This was the year my first child was born, the first time I met my future  ex friend, my first time finding an addiction, my last suicide attempt, the last time I worked for minimum wage, and the first time I heard Les Claypool live.

Your not stuck on prog rock host, +Andrew Coffman

Beck Nobody's Fault But My Own

I had a friend for over 15 years that I alternatively lived with, called my brother, and put ahead of my own priorities that eventually showed me how blind I was to the co-dependent and dysfunctional life that was being led in any relationship with that man.

While I had previous issues with addiction, I no longer pursue that path and the problems I had with certain substances no longer blind me to the people who are out for their own selfish death spirals...

Your wasted blues host, +Andrew Coffman

Johnny Cash Man In Black

There are times when you get forced onto a path not entirely of your own making, much like Johnny Cash did at different points in his life.

And much like The man in black, you find a few bright spots on that forced march from the cradle to grave.

Your rainbow suit waiting to be worn host, +Andrew Coffman

Eric Clapton and John Mayer Pretending (Live)

Speaking of wanting a time machine, I'd kill to have one so I can take my smartphone back to all the concerts I attended as a child so I could pick up footage and sound like this video has from somewhere in the not so cheap seats of Madison Square Garden.

Your constantly wishing host, +Andrew Coffman

Luciano Pavarotti and B.B. King The Thrill Is Gone

After a while I have to question whether I've slipped into the territory of being jaded with impossibly high and arcane standards or just being tired of all the refried audio garbage that keeps trying to perpetuate that out dated record industry model of separating people from as much cash as they can muster.

Then I get to see two legends from different stages together long, or even a short time, after they've passed on from this life and my hope is renewed.

Your optimistic host, +Andrew Coffman

Strawberry Alarm Clock Incense and Peppermints

Of the many oddities that passed through the record stores in America before the internet smashed the old RIAA empire, was the make your own mix tape machines that had almost no current hit songs or hot local bands, but they had plenty of yesteryear's radio fare to put on your creation at $1.99 a song.

I made a 60s tribute tape for $20 that beat the pants off of Time Life's 60s collection...

Your perpetual sucker host, +Andrew Coffman

Killing Joke Eighties

The last time I thought I knew it all, where the just and unjust lines lay, and the plan that would rectify it all was when I was in my teen years of punk rock following.

This song came out, giving a great band the recognition it deserved, but also opened my eyes to the tripe I had bought into. I joined the US Army not two months later.

You push push struggle host, +Andrew Coffman

I know how that goes. Since I couldn't single handedly get rid of the draft I wanted to make sure the guys got home. So I wrote defence code. A gentleman I worked with had come back from Vietnam. He had to get a divorce as he was afraid he'd kill his wife if she moved in the bed when he was sleeping. He was the nicest guy. It was a shame his life was a nightmare and all her foals.

Frankie Goes To Hollywood Two Tribes (12" Mix)

A particular favorite of mine, and I've played it or requested it may times on  this page with every one of our DJs.

It means so much to me as I recall being in a local record store (Rasputin's, a California legendary record chain - right up there with Tower and Amoeba) when this was unboxed and offered for sale.

Vinyl will always have a special place in my soul.

Your master track host, +Andrew Coffman

Where Every Night Is Friday Night. Best Music Videos of the 80s to Today's Great Songs. 80s Friday Night show starts at ...10PM New York | 7PM Los Angeles | 3AM London
Introduction
Welcome to FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS - Where Every Night Is Friday Night. Since October 2011.

Over 3 years ago, I got a wild idea in my head to regularly post fun 80s videos every Friday night. I started to call my regular gig - Friday Night Sessions. It has been a lot of fun taking requests on all sorts of dance videos, top-40, pop, pop-rock and more. I realized (though a friend) that maybe we could do this a bit better via a PAGE. This is that page, and I've initially asked six friends to co-manage this page with me (all are interested in being a guest DJ whenever possible).

We've kicked the idea around a bit of having Theme Nights, and I like that a lot. So, look on this page for all announcements about #fridaynightsessions and we're glad you're here!

We're adding new shows to the schedule in 2015 and hopefully there will be other exciting changes to announce. Stay tuned!

-Sean Cowen, Founder of FNS

Our Page Managers In No Particular Order:


Ross Fergus ...         Andrew Coffman ...  Yonatan Zunger


Matt Tuomala ...       Johnny Zed ...            Samuel Vain


>>>>>>>>>>  We've just added a PUBLIC CALENDAR for FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS here:
_________________________


Ryan Van Sickle

Ryan is thinking about hosting an American Folk Roots Songbook night or something like night.  Old folk/blues to modern folk folk/rock.

Writing songs of character and integrity that resound the timeless and universal, Ryan Van Sickle uniquely translates the themes of love, war, life and death and the epic and mundane struggles within.  Following in the steps of the masters from his native Canada, Ryan draws on the influences of Neil Young, Daniel Lanois, and Leonard Cohen alongside American greats Bruce Springsteen and Emmylou Harris.  With the release of his latest album Ghosts Of The Brokenhearted on iTunes - http://goo.gl/9VZ00 , and on Google Music - http://goo.gl/89RIf, Ryan emerges as a powerful singer songwriter; asserting prowess in building a lyrical highway with a strong voice to carry his listeners on the journey. View his website at ryanvansicklemusic.com

Roger R. H. King
Roger genuinely loves many genres of music as long as it is, as he says, "Worth crankin' up!" Raised on the the sounds of Motown, "Classic" rock, Classical music, R&B, and jazz, he's played drums and sung in numerous unknown bands ranging from blues to country, and jazz to rock.  As a symphonic percussionist, he's also played with many orchestras and other musical productions. A music major in college, he's also been a "personality" on Classic Rock radio, as well as a party DJ in the Springfield area.  Roger's submissions to our page will show off his broad range of tastes and diversity, as he also attempts to educate our audience with facts, stories, and insights about the artists and music.

"I am really looking forward to getting to personally, and musically, know all of you as we head off on this G+ musical journey. Peace, Love, and Crank It!" - RRHK
 
Branden Haize 

Branden Haize first joined Friday Night Sessions as a volunteer "music historian", supplying facts and trivia to videos posted during the Friday night time slot. Soon, he became an official page manager himself, and the host of his own show, Lost in the Haize. When does it air? It's a spontaneous thing, whenever the mood strikes him (and whenever the forum isn't being used by someone else). Branden is also the author of "Darwin's Playground" and "The Prospector", two independent web-series available to read at BrandenHaize.com.

Andrew Coffman

Andrew is a long time listener of FNS  and has an abiding interest in remixed songs, as evidenced by his own page +All Remixed Up , but his tastes run the gamut of the entire musical spectrum.

While Andrew may not play any instrument beyond the radio or been involved in the music industry, he has been on 5 of the 7 continents, helped build bridges, dams and refineries where no human has business being at and flown enough miles to make it to the moon and back.

Look for him to roll out the eclectic, the remixed and great tunes you forgot you loved in the wee morning hours of West Coast and get ready to whet your whistle for a midnight snack that's tasty and exotic.


Sarah Lynne aka Metalynne

Metalynne or Sarah Lynne, labels herself as a tried and true metalhead. She listens to all sub-genres of metal from heavy metal to metalcore, anything she can bang her head to. Metalynne has a show here on FNS called Subdural Hematoma. Her show is dedicated to all things metal music related. She has been known to bring the studio to flames and we have even had to call security a few times because of her antics.

Look out for her every Sunday night to bring you the most face melting metal show she can. And as Metalynne likes to say, "Horns up! \m/"


Samuel 'Zenman' Vain

Samuel ‘Zenman” Vain was born and grew up in California, he’s a Metalhead to the core that evolved into it. His childhood in the 70’s and teens in the 80’s allowed him to witness the evolution of Rock & Roll into Hard Rock and then Metal. He’s a bit on the crazy side being an accomplished artist so you can never tell what video he might post.

As a youngster he loved the Beatles, Jimmi Hendrix, Kansas, Foreigner, and Black Sabbath in addition to many more. As much fun as they were he needed more guitar and drums as he grew. Suddenly there was Van Halen, Scorpions, Iron Maiden, Stormtroopers of Death, Alice Cooper, and this tape he was given in Los Angeles by a guy in a band that he wore out but never could remember the band name. Hearing ‘Hit the lights’ for the first time in 3 years solved that mystery, and the search for more music like that was on. When Slayer came it was like seeing a divinity!

Now that there are bands that can cause aneurisms there is blood all over his walls when it suits him but there is a chill and romantic side to watch, they pop in randomly. He can be sweet, dark, funny, and very serious, but it’s the eccentric parts that make his mind fun.
