“The Hermit” hosts Stuck in the Psychedelic Era twice weekly two hour radio show on gulchradio.com FM100.5 KZRJ Jerome, AZ featuring music from roughly the years 1964-69. The show is literally a throwback to the days of “underground” radio. There are no pre-recorded jingles or promotional spots; just two hours of music, punctuated by occasional commentary by The Hermit, whose own radio career began on a small closed-circuit station in the early 70s.

The Hermit takes lot’s of his music directly from vintage vinyl, scratches and all. The rest comes from Compact Disc compilations and re-issues of original albums, all taken from the Hermit’s personal collection.

Commentary is centered on the music itself: artist histories, contextual information, anecdotes, personal memories and occasional forays into how the music of the psychedelic era relates to today’s world. Each week The Hermit writes a blog, The Hermit Rambles about the featured music in the current show as well as his archived show – read about the music: http://www.thehermitrambles.blogspot.com/

Blues Before Sunrise

Sunday night 9 PM until 2 AM MST Monday morning Blues Before SunriseHeritage Blues on GulchRadio – For 17 years DJ Steve Cushing has aired Blues Before Sunrise, the “Blues Heritage Showcase”, over Chicago’s public radio station 91.5FM WBEZ, and for the last six years the rest of the country has also had a chance to hear his show via satellite – Blues Before Sunrise has long served an audience that includes loyal home listeners, musicians lounging on break, lovers in their living rooms, cab drivers and other service workers pulling the graveyard, and even teen airwaves surfers discovering an entire musical world peopled by cats who were hip before them.

Blues Before Sunrise showcases blues as part of a cultural landscape that includes jump and jive, rhythm and blues, swing, doo wop, gospel, comedy, and recitation, and never is the music presented as kitsch or retro fashion in the way that some music has been exploited and trivialized. For Cushing the blues is a living African-American tradition with deep roots.

As a musician himself bearing substantial credentials with Magic Slim and The Teardrops, the Lee Jackson band and Smokey Smothers and The Ice Cream Men, Steve Cushing numbers among his friends and closest associates the artists on this recording-fellow musicians to whom this is a vital, thriving music as well as a means of making a living. This is a great show that GulchRadio is proud to present – join us.

  1. Just heard about and found you guys. Finally, a station out here, where I don’t feel like throwing my radio out the window.

  2. Lovin the RicNRoll show every morning… start work at 7am EST (Mississauga Ontario) and catch the show till 10am – this music is just a fantastic way to the start the day!

  3. First started listening in Michigan. Now that we’re just down the road in Sedona, we’re enjoying the “hometown” station even more. Radio doesn’t get much better than this! Congratulations!

  4. love your station and I’m telling all I meet here in Cwood. about you –you were in the Verde Independant but it’s obvious people I talk to don’t read the paper— few days back you played a song whose lyric was ” all the hens get quiet when the cock comes around “– any clue who did it ?? thanks much–

  5. Hi, I found your station yesterday online through a blog when I was googling stuff in the area since I am moving soon to Clarkdale foothills area…so very excited to find a station that reminds me of the non-mainstream stations found in the 60’s of my youth…..Thank you for your good work in keepin it flowing!!! Currently listening online in Oceanside, CA……
    One question, why does it say NOw PLayiNG as “UMelt” with Beatles VI album cover showing, and showed as Clapton playing last song, but these are incorrect….what’s up with that?
    Thanks much, Carla

    • Welcome to the Verde Valley Carla and thanks for writing. We’re happy you like the station – that now playing thing seems to have some issues, it runs behind quite often.

      Ric

  6. Liaoning Province, China – I’ve been stuck here in China for 12 years now and you cannot imagine how happy I was to stumble across you. Finding streaming radio here is like searching for a unicorn. With censorship on the Chinese side, and copyright restrictions by companies (like I-heart-radio), it’s a rarity to find a station at all. Finding someone playing a format so suited to me… I feel like I just found a 12 lb. gold nugget in a stream. I’m seriously considering wiring up this old apartment for sound.

    Thanks a million.

  7. WOW!!! An awesome radio station…Finally. By far the best array of good music ever. Love hearing songs from my childhood I don’t remember hearing in 20 some years. Thank you for your diligence getting on the air.
    You played a song last Friday the 13th that had a chorus ending with the lyric “ghost town radio”. ?
    Often get swept away by the music you play.

    • Hi Nic – thanks very much for the letter. Ghost town radio – that’s us. The song you heard of Friday was Patrick Thomas “Ghost Town Radio.”

  8. I listened to “Music for Morons” tonite..I had a fanatically frenzied freakin’ GOOD TIME with Me, Myself and I..and YOU TWO, of course! Thanks so much for those 2 hours! Can’t wait ’til next time! Maybe I shall join the “Moron Tabernacle Choir” during your time off. .just to keep me busy! Great show!

  9. I’ve been trying to locate a song you play. The lyrics are “unleash the rain wash the blood of man from this wasteland”. Some more lyrics are “clouds come together and darken the sun”, “a mighty crack feel the vibration”. Please help. Your station is AMAZING!

  10. I believe the last time I heard it was Thursday 3/19/15 around noon. I have heard it more than once in the last two weeks. I hope you can help me, I’ve had no luck looking up lyrics online.

  11. You guys can thank Sen. John McCain! He was talking up Jerome on Imus in the Morning today. Decided to Google Jerome and found you guys. Great radio. I’m stuck in the 60’s. Will be listening on line from South Carolina.

    • Thanks for tuning us in Joe – Sen McCain is a frequent visitor to Jerome, having a home nearby. Not only can we thank him for your tuning in but advocating for and sponsoring the bill that created low power FM radio which enabled us to take to the FM airwaves in November. What were the nature of his comments about Jerome?

      • He and Imus once made a trip to Sedona together and talked about that. He just commented, as a side note, that if you visit Arizona you really need to see Jerome. Commented on the it’s beauty on the side of a mountain and the really great people. I’ve been to Flagstaff once, next time I will make it a priority to visit you guys.

        • That’s great – thanks for the update. Jerome is a fun place, when you visit here you can tune us in at 100.5 – we’re honored that the Senator thinks highly of our little town.

  12. I have been thinking a lot ’bout how it would b great to hear Music&Morons EVERY Saturday. .but I am a Proud Gemini. .and Proud music enthusiast..I love Carsos’show! He is a deep, thoughtful, tender man..an inspirational groove to the Gulch! I look forward to hearing his show evry other wkend!

    • Hi Laurie – we’re glad you enjoy both the Morons and Carsos – both shows are live here in our studios in Jerome.Carsos has been doing his show now for many years and is indeed an inspirational guy, and also to mention that he’s the guy the keeps the station running when we’re on vacation.

    • Hi Laurie ~
      As a fellow Gemini and long-time music enthusiast, I want to thank you for your compliments. I hope you will continue to enjoy Saturday nights here on the Gulch for a long time to come. Thanks for writing.

      Carsos

      • Thanks for the kindness! Most of my numerous radios are ALWAYS tuned to The Gulch! They shall remain the same,long after I’m gone! (It’s in my will!) Happy Birthday to You, Carsos!

  15. Hello Gulchers, been Listening since I got a wi-fi Radio in 2005, great station for my generation, appreciate every ones efforts Love you guys
    Mike in England-shire ha ha 🙂

    • Hey Mike – thanks for listening for all these years, 2005 is when we went online. Glad you enjoy Gulch Radio and thanks for the note.

  16. On August 12, 2015 at 4:30 you played a blues instrumental, followed by a reggae song and then a little later, a song singing about ‘going to California. Could you please tell me the artist and title of these three songs?

    • Hi Rob – the songs you asked about are:Trouble Ain’t Far Behind – Gary Moore, Hypocrites – Bob Marley and California – John Mayall.

  17. As an I-17 commuter up north, and I can receive your station up to, and just beyond the scenic overlook, and sometimes further. You entertain me on the way up the hill, and de-stress me on the way home, minus annoying ads. I love your programming and hearing tunes I had forgotten about, and some tunes that I’ve never heard before and really enjoy. Keep up the good work, and a big bump in power would make your station sky rocket.

    • Hey Northlander – thanks for writing. Wish we could have more power, but right now we are running the maximum power allowed for our type of no-profit radio station. Currently there is a petition before the Federal Communications Commission in Washington DC to allow stations like ours to more than double our power – we might meet the guidlines that would allow such an increase and if we did, we would take that opportunity. It will be at least a year before we find out if the Commission will authorize the power increases. We’re glad you enjoy the station but wish you could listen longer. By the way on some car radios we are being received as far as Kachina Village. Safe travels!

  18. So, I am running errands, driving around town. A song comes on the Gulch. I love it, wish I knew its title and artist, but I have never heard it before, and the DJ does not announce it. I get home, go to Gulchradio.com and see if I can find the song on a playlist. There is no playlist that I can find, anyway. This has happened so many times it has become a source of potential irritation. So instead of getting irritated, I write this note, asking: WTH is your playlist?!

    • Sorry for the irritation – currently we can’t publish our entire playlist we can only show the last three songs played, but if you yell me approx what time you heard a song, describe it and was it a male or female artist I can find it for – most likely. Write to us at: gulchradio@hotmail.com – are you listening locally on FN100.5 or in a car internet connected – if you are internet connected, on most radios the song titles and artists stream constantly – anyway write to me and include your time zone.

  19. Friends, Jeromans, countrymen, residents of the Verde Valley, citizens of cyberspace, and everyone who can read these words ~~ I wish all of you a very happy and prosperous new year and many pleasant and exciting hours of audio entertainment here on the fabulous Gulch Radio. May your FM signal be static-free, and your internet stream be uninterrupted throughout the coming year. Aloha!

  20. Could you please tell me the artist who is playing “I’m a long way from heaven” and who was playing the song before this one, as well. Thank you so much.

    • Hi Rob -sorry i didn’t see your message – the songs you referred to were on UnderCurrents, the show number was 3778 that night, so go to their website, undercurrentsradio.net/playlists and search 3778 for the song titles and artists.

  21. I don’t know how you do it. Your weekday programming is fantastic, each song flowing into the next. Saturday and Sundays we stay home and you’re on all day. And never a commercial. I believe it must be magic and I don’t really want to look behind the curtain. Thank you!!

    • Thanks for the great letter Sunny. We’re glad you enjoy the big variety of music. No commercials ever. Behind the curtain? A couple guys and their friends with big piles of music, a little transmitter and a tall tower. Thanks very much for listening.

      Best regards,
      Ric

  22. I “discovered” your station several months ago. Been listening ever since. I’m almost 65 but when I listen to your variety, I feel like I did when FM first broke out in the late 60’s. I don’t know who is behind your station but he/she is an f*&kin” genius! Incredible content, variety and minimal interruptions.

      • Hi Russell – thanks for the letters. We’re some music lovers who got it together and built this thing slowly over the years since 2003.Yes – you can listen wherever you go so take us along.

        Thanks for the kind words!

        Ric

  23. Thank you for playing so much Blues, thanks to you, I discovered Beth Hart-LOVE her. I work at Airport Rent a Car of Sedona, and we now have all our
    radios programmed with your station on them!!!!!

  24. Just moved to the area. A friend suggested your station. So I tuned in to see. Paul Butterfield and Joe Bonamassa in the same hour. I’m hooked. Keep doing what you do.

  25. Moved here from Kansas City in June and found your station. Love all the old songs and blues. The music is refreshing! And you have all the songs we love to listen to. Great set up and enjoy it a lot!

    • Welcome to Arizona Deborah – glad you found us and brought us into your world. Thanks very much for writing. We love the letters.

      Best regards,
      Ric

  26. You guys are awesome! Here’s a suggestion for you: add a comedy show for an hour or two each week. The old Firesign Theatre or National Lampoon stuff is still really funny, and there are also a lot of really good current comedians like Lewis Black and Kathleen Madigan who are hilarious. Just a thought.
    Danny

    • Hi Danny -thanks for writing, we’re glad you’re enjoying the station. We do play the Firesign Theater from time to time, usually on Monday or Tuesday mornings – we also play National Lampoons tuff as well as some Cheech and Chong and also some homegrown stuff. XCheck out Music and Morons on the first Monday of the month. We’ll consider adding more material.

      Best regards,
      Ric

  27. My God! a station ran by live humans playing music! Been here since ’87 and this is the first station that I have heard playing Pink Floyd cuts, Leonard Cohen, and all the good stuff.

    • Hi Mike – thanks for writing. Here we are, real humans (though some might question that) doing the radio thing. We’re happy you found us and enjoy the station. Also – thanks for your offers to help. If you want tot alk to us more abut that, better to write to us at: gulchradio@hotmail.com – this website system is a little clunky.

      Thanks again!

      Ric

  28. I am looking for the Frank Zappa hour on the website but not seeing it. Are you still having it?
    Thanks, Mike Prow

  29. And I do love your station. The first I’ve ever heard that is completely commercial free. I tell everyone about your station, especially all my buddies back in Indiana listening on gulchradio.com.

    • Thanks for writing Mike – we are glad you enjoy the station but sorry to tell you the Frank Zappa Hour is on break. The creator and producer needed a break to deal with personal issues. When that is sorted out it may be back.

      Thanks again for listening and spreading the word.

      Ric

  30. Stumbled upon your station on the way by Jerome in May. Loved it for the 45 minutes that we were able to get it. Live in New Hampshie and are thrilled to be able to listen to the broadcasts online. Also love having the playlists readily available. I’ve spent lots of money buying some of the tunes that you play. Great to hear Tab, Taj, Keb and Joe Bonamassa on a regular basis. Better than any station that we have in the northeast!

  31. Wow, I LOVE this station! Moved to Sedona recently and hate all the other stations! It’s so great not to hear a commercial every 5 minutes and to hear “deep cuts” you haven’t heard in a long time! Hubby asked if I’d like to get Sirius like he has…I said, not if I can have this station.

    The only thing I wish for is the display of what artist you’re playing as I’m driving in the car. Although my husband and I enjoy arguing about who we think it is 🙂

    • Hi Kathie – sorry I missed your letter. Thanks for writing. It’s our pleasure to provide the tunes and glad to hear from folks who enjoy the music.

      We won’t be able to add titles and artists to our signal until somebody lays a lot of loot on us – but – you can settle your arguments by checking out our playlists on our home page. The link is at the bottom of the page.

      Best regards,
      Ric and Chaz

    • Hello Patrice from Jerome, Arizona USA –

      Thanks for writing and listening. We enjoy letters, especially those from around the world!

      We’re glad you enjoy the station and thanks for the kind words!

      Best regards,
      Ric (short for Richard)

  32. My wife and I were visiting Sedona last spring and I tuned into your fantastic radio station. We just had to drive through Jerome on the way back to Phoenix to check it out. Crazy city on top of those cliffs. We really liked it. Now we listen regularly from North Seattle. Thanks for providing such a great station. Looking forward to donating $$.

    • Hi Karl – thanks for the note! We’re glad you listen in Seattle. Jerome truly is a crazy little city hanging on a cliff. Good place for a radio transmitter because the signal can go for miles and miles, basically as far as you can see. We hope you continue to enjoy the station and we cheerfully accept any and all donations, which are used to pay the bills to keep the show on the air.

      Best regards.
      Ric and Chaz
