Thanks for tuning in.
Saturday's Radio is singer-songwriter Rob Christensen's ongoing folk-rock (& stuff) music project. We make records influenced by the likes of R.E.M., Neil Young, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and Wilco. We also love The Replacements, Bob Mould, Joni Mitchell, The Beach Boys, The Ramones, The Who, The Kinks, Elliott Smith, and so many more. We've been at this for a while and we're adding new stuff all the time, so please take a look around. And thank you for supporting independent music.
I'm seeking hosts for House Concerts (or "Living Room Shows") this summer. Are you interested in having a solo-acoustic Saturday's Radio show in your living room or on your deck? Check out our "Summer 2015 House Concert Tour" page (updated Saturday, May 30, 2015) and drop me a line.

Friday, June 26, 2015 - The Light Well, Orange, VA recap
Had a great time tonight playing at The Light Well in Orange, VA. Buzz, Emily, and Dave always treat me well. Dave does a great job in setting up the sound and finding a good balance; not having to worry about that aspect of the evening is a nice treat.

- Promise Me
- These Days
- Kiss and Run
- Janie Sims
- Motel Blues (Loudon Wainwright III cover)
- Star Route Nine
- The Love That She Makes
- Best Man

- Not A Local Girl
- Hollywood’s Dreams
- Smile Slightly -> How Can I Get Close?
- Sorry Again

- Days Don’t Last Forever
- When I See The Light

Thanks, Ben Siegan, for the pic!
Thursday, June 4, 2015 - Cottage Session #3
Last Saturday night, May 30, we filmed another episode of our Cottage Session solo-acoustic house performance series. This time I played "Opera Alley", "How Can I Get Close?" (which has never appeared on a Saturday's Radio album but has been played live many times), and "Hollywood's Dreams".
The video was captured by an iPhone 4s and iPad2, while the audio was recorded with Presonus' Studio One 2 DAW software. Editing was done using iMovie.
I'll be back next month with three more songs. Suggestions and requests are always welcome.
Saturday, May 30, 2015 - House Concert Tour Plans Have Changed
I was looking to take my Saturday’s Radio music project across the United States this summer for a solo-acoustic tour, but finances and time dictate that I stay closer to home. So instead I'm looking to stick to the eastern third of the U.S. I've got shows booked in Virginia and Tennessee and I'd like to play Georgia, the Carolinas, Maryland, Ohio, and maybe Pennsylvania. Click here for more details.
In other news, I hope to send out a Saturday's Radio Dispatch email newsletter this weekend. If you're not receiving these, sign up on the left. I'm also hoping to do a third Cottage Session this weekend. Cottage Sessions are 3-song solo-acoustic performances I've been shooting and posting to YouTube.
