Fighting Rose

Page: 4

Hey there y’all. No need to explain this week’s playlist. Other than that I’m feelin’ the midterm blues and Fighting Rose set out to cure them with these really rad tunes. Hope you enjoy. Also, don’t forget to thank your mother this Sunday for all she does for your sorry butt. And that ends this […]

“All people care about nowadays is getting paid, so they try to do just what the audience wants them to do. I’d rather give people what they need rather than just what they want.”   On April 21st, 2016, the world lost another musical icon; Prince was much more of an artist than even all […]

First off – huge props to my good friend and fellow KPSU family member, DJ Sof E Uh, for hosting tonight’s show. At the moment I’m writing this, I have officially been home from the Paul McCartney One on One Tour at the Moda Center for nineteen minutes, so I’m in a sort of aftershock […]

When you’re running a race and someone on the sidelines says you’re… yeeeaaaahhh, riiiiight. No athlete wants to hear that. But you know what you do wanna hear when you’re nearing the finish line? Thunderstruck. So lace up and enjoy the final part of Fighting Rose’s “Rock N’ Run” series. Or, you know, listen to […]

Did you see the sun?! I did – confirmed siting. Portlanders – you better take advantage of it while it lasts; download this playlist and enjoy some time outside. And if the clouds roll back in, just let George Harrison’s lyrics take you away that Spring-time state-of-mind.

Ah, St. Paddy’s Day, that most saintly of holidays – *wink wink*. Whether it’s as virtuous as it’s namesake would recommend it to being (but judging from the titles of several of these songs, I’m gonna go ahead and say it’s not…) St. Paddy’s Day is an excellent day. If you disagree, you must not […]

I don’t know if it’s residual Valentine’s Day feels or what, but this week Fighting Rose has a soft spot for great partnerships, and thus, here’s a (very non-definitive) tribute to some excellent songwriting duos: Jagger/Richards (“Glimmer Twins”) King/Goffin Hall & Oats Jones/Strummer King/Goffin John/Taupin Henley/Frey Page/Plant Tyler/Perry (“Toxic Twins”) Leiber/Stoller Becker/Fagan Lennon/McCartney

It’s the end of Week 8 here at PSU, and that means that everyone is already gearing up for finals. Luckily, there’s at least one thing in college life that’s a no brainer: the fact that listening to a great bunch of classic rock songs will improve everything from your mood to test scores. That […]

Alright Alright Alright Fighting Rose listeners – February 16th marked the ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of the most perfect Classic Rock radio show that ever was. (This one, if you didn’t get that.) And in celebration, this week’s playlist is a compilation of my the best songs from the best playlists over the last year. Cheers! […]

Valentine’s Day might be one thing according to Hershey and Hallmark, but it can be a whole other beast for real couples tryin’ to make it (or break it) out there in the real world. Which is why this week, instead of an hour of your run-of-the-mill love-mush, there’s a little bit of a story […]
