Chateau Dietrich

If You Would Like to Hear This Record

Because of various problems with public blogs and rights problems, I have decided to take my blog and convert it to a private email. If you’d like to listen to this album (and more) or any other album I am posting here, just send me your email address at and I will put you on my list. Along with this album, I have a gigantic archive of my vinyl digitizations that gets added to every week. I do them myself and de-click them. Most sound pretty darned good, if I do say so myself.
This is not some come on. Just caution on my part. It costs nothing and there’s nothing to join. Just an email address. I have about a hundred people on my list at the moment. Come and join the musical fun.

Marsbar Playlist ~ 7 – 23-24 - 2011

A special thanks to for letting us repost their playlist and to David Marsden for allowing us to link to his great podcast. This is simply amazing music that you can download and listen to anytime. All you need to do is look at this list of tunes and you know there's no other radio show like it. Enjoy!

Here is a video from Mr. Marsden’s birthday bash last week. As Neil Young so eloquently sang, “Long My You Run.”

Marsbar Playlist ~ 7-23-2011
July 23, 2011
David Marsden on the Rock.FM every Saturday and Sunday night from 7 p.m. until midnight.
Outside, all over North America, the heat is setting records (except for Florida, where people are flocking to “cool off” – how ironic!). Inside, in the Marsbar theatre, David Marsden kept us cool and comfortable with his special brand of free-form music. If you missed it tonight, you have another chance to see what it’s all about, and have some respite from the heat, to boot.
The list is up until 10 pm. If anyone can help out with the balance until midnight, it would be most appreciated.

A grand evening was had by all, regardless of extraordinarily hot weather.David won’t be here to stuff Marsbars in our ears next weekend, so this fine music will have to sustain us for a couple of weeks. But when he returns, watch out – your ears may not be able to handle the thrill!
As always, many thanks to JerusalemSlim for his help compiling the list after 10 pm.
