Coyote Radio Tujunga is an album of LIVE solo performances by The Hippy Coyote as he was practicing for Live performances on various cable television station shows in 2003. He would also sing his son, Rory, to sleep each day and on a couple songs you may be able to hear him clapping in the background at the conclusion of a song.
“Don’t Forget” SOLO LIVE
With one microphone pointed at his Alvarez acoustic guitar, and another at his mouth, Richard Del Connor produced these recordings as clean as possible in the Shaolin Records Tujunga Home Studio where Coyote was still a Mr. Mom since 1991. Some of these songs include some improvisation from their previously recorded American Zen albums.
“Don’t Push Me” SOLO LIVE
The song, “Don’t Push Me,” was written while Coyote was a Journeyman Union Carpenter in 1986 building a maximum security prison in the mountains east of the Magic Mountain Theme Park north of Los Angeles. In that world of hardworking slavery, there was one foreman who would cuss at his carpenters and occasionally even manhandle them. Coyote let this asshole know that he would not be bullied, cussed-at or pushed–without consequences. This macho bravado required to survive this one-year job was distressful to Coyote’s artistic temperament, but necessary.
The “THC” name was given to Coyote many years later when he was performing in Las Vegas casinos with reggae bands on his flute. When they realized his name was The Hippy Coyote, these Rastafarians enjoyed calling him by his new nickname, “THC.” Although Coyote enjoyed hanging out with these reggae bands, he was not appreciative of the looks he got when he answered the loud summons of, “THC!” But we decided to include the THC in his artist name per their urging and in hopes of more album sales…
