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.

October 26, 2014 - Caffe Driade, Chapel Hill
Had a great time playing at Caffe Driade in Chapel Hill last Saturday night. It was nice to play an outside stage & meet some wonderful people. The setlist is up on the shows page, where you can also find details of future public appearances (doesn't that sound pretentious?).
Take care, y'all!
September 29, 2014 - So she said we're playing in Chapel Hill
As September winds down, so do the celebrations for the 20th Anniversary of our debut release Smile Slightly. CD Baby has it on sale for only $3.49 if you’d like to download it from those fine folks. But do hurry; that offer is going away after September 30th.
We also have one last video for Smile Slightly. This one’s for “Why (So She Said)”. This was the last song I recorded for the album, as I recall, and by this point I was warmed up and on a creative roll. Arrangement-wise I'm pretty proud of this recording, especially considering I had to do it on a 4-track cassette machine. Lyrically I think it reflects the twenty-something angst and uncertainty I was feeling at the time. I probably wouldn't write this song today, but then art is about capturing a time, isn't it?
Finally we do have a show to announce. I’ll be playing solo-acoustic style, as is my custom these days, at Caffe Driade in Chapel Hill, NC. It’s happening on Saturday, October 18, and I’ll be starting at 8 and going until 10:30 or so. See the Shows page for details. Hope to see you there!
Until next time…
