Noodle and Man Are Separated by a Comma: Transmission 372, 2017 September 27

les_big_byrd_two_man_gang.jpg Can retirement be far off? I wonder about this in more than one context. On the attached sound file, I sound at times like I'm making Dad jokes, for which I am qualified, but the execution is nevertheless poor. Elsewhere, I wax extremely "pedantic" about men, noodles, and love. At least I know at the time that I am going off the rails. That's something, right?

To think I fancied writing a book a little over a year ago! God, would I need an editor, and I am not in a position to hire one. You're stuck with these diary entries. The universe is merciful to us all.

Anyway, this is the best-executed program we have had in a while, so that is also something. PLUS, I actually did my research during the program! Though I must concede that I am only about 80% sure that Robbie Shakespeare actually plays on the Revolutionaries album. And to think I used to consider Factory Records less than forthcoming with personnel credits on their records.

One of the Perks of Being a Radio Personality: Transmission 371, 2017 September 23

• October 3rd, 2017
00:0000:00

ultraviolence.jpg Here is the penultimate broadcast of a very busy September, in which we used up our allotted memory at ye olde podcast site, and then some! Junior is my copilot on this night, though she declined to spin a record and retreated to "mere" commentary. I fear that she is growing bored with radio, and/or with me. This saddens me, not just because my daughter is growing up, but because she is a good radio person and getting better. It's about CONTENT.

DJ Midwife (aka Kristi) may or may not have been "doing good things in the world" on this night, which gave us the opportunity to synth you out here. However, I can find no confirmation of any "good things" in my email. I must have had her confused with somebody else! But surely it is a good sign that I think the best of other people.

Oh, and Hoga Nord is from Sweden, of course.

simon_hold_NT.jpg Welcome to the final Bombast of the "summer." I'm flying solo on this regular Wednesday night broadcast--I fear that this disclaimer becomes more urgent with every guest appearance by Junior. (It would be nice if someone were to say whether they still enjoyed the "basic" thing I do every week). Seemingly, I was enjoying myself on this night, and it comes through! That story about Anthony the Resident Advisor, which I share after the Sisters of Mercy tune, had to come out--it's been bugging me for 30 years that only I could spot the resemblance.

Are there any other unresolved grudges that I use this program to solve, you wonder? No, although the chronic issue--maybe Junior has something to do with this too--is What It All Amounts To. I have speculated about this before, and felt confidence in at least one prior theory, but the doubt is strong. It doesn't help when my therapist asks me what the value of self-expression is and I don't have an answer. Is that Buddhist? Or am I just really, really slow in figuring it out?

udmo_luba_luft.jpg The attached program is what people call a "grower." I remember it being fun to do, but it took a couple of playbacks for me to appreciate its merits, "properly." Perhaps the vault doesn't beckon, but if this were your only mixtape from me, you'd prefer it over silence, unless you wouldn't. It doesn't even have "Physical Evidence" or a "Listening Parlour" interlude, and yet it still features wild stylistic swings and changes in tempo and rhythm. And, of course, the usual mistakes.

I had spent the day editing sound files, shopping for records, and watching the "juggalos vs nazis" event down in DC unfold on Twitter--not that any of this is necessarily audible in the program. But I thought you might like subtext. I don't often think about what others might like! Appreciate this.

My Skin Is Deeper Than Is Thought: Transmission 368, 2017 September 13

• September 23rd, 2017
00:0000:00

somewhere_iii.jpg Here is what I call a "featureless" program: no "physical evidence," no visit to "the listening parlour." It's just a collection of great tunes (or is it "good tunes" that I promise? I can't remember whether I was selling my selection short on this outing). Feels like pretty good flow! And more synthy than the previous program, though there is a mini "rock block" in here somewhere, "sonic trail mix" be damned.

What was it like to be me, or in Ithaca, on this particular day? (A new feature.) I believe I spent a good deal of time blocking brands on various social media platforms. One day I will get them all. Boring, you say? You try operating on as little sleep as I was having this week. Also, I started to mourn as a local pizza/music venue's owners announced they were selling their building and lot to retire, and surely the space will be given over to yet another high-rise of student housing at Ivy League prices.

Does it really get better?

ham_buffalo_virgin.jpg If it's true that "we always get what we deserve," then you, listener, must have earned a dark, rocking, and solid program. Only a few brief bursts of light--and Wanda Jackson--provide relief the intensity. THIS IS THE GOOD CONTENT: sort of what I envisioned out of this program in the beginning, and also kind of reminiscent of the first year. Not that we are in decline or anything. Are we? "SHUT YOUR FACE," I tell myself, "THEN YOU'LL BE HAPPY."

Admittedly I never really "got" Ham and I probably still don't (it doesn't matter). I owned this record, and then I didn't, and now I do again and probably always will; that's how things go sometimes. The other day I tried "explaining" their "thing" to Lady Catharsis and had one hell of a time trying to find the words. Alternative Rock, you say, Discogs? Heavy Metal? Neither of those seem...adequate. Somehow we missed out on one of the best-ever ABBA covers, but we have played that before, and ther "rules" that need observing.

laurel_halo_dust.jpg Here is one of those shows that might make you think, had you known me 30 years ago, "ah yes, he is still on his bullshit." Noisy self-released English pop! African compilations! New Order! Discussion of Burning Airlines Mail Order! Boring the hell out of my guests! It is all here, champ.

Junior, though finding many things dull here (sorry, Dan!), is giving the thumbs up to most of the content, so that's good. And I discover an increased appreciation for a Rolling Stones recording, which is also nice. I happen to agree with Junior that Muzak is not relaxing. Nor is dedicated Easy Listening--I associate it with visiting the doctor's office as a child, to get my allergy shots every single fucking week. At least the nurses were kind!

I'm also struck by how much more melodic New Order are than everything else I'm into on this night. Goodness gracious what a terrific record PCL is.

Are You Patient and Kind with People: Transmission 365, 2017 August 30

volume_14.jpg My own radio gratification being on a two-week delay--your mileage may vary--I am happy to announce that this is a good-sounding broadcast. This comes as a surprise, not for the usual reasons but because the "Official" Volume Reading Special was always one of the "lesser" Volumes to me, and yet now it brings the enjoyment. Britpop: I was not having it! And, mostly, am still not. Also, it was the mid-90s and my mind was broken. Yes, this is me, now, saying that. Sheesh. Would it be worth mentioning that the tunes that "fit" in this program are somehow not even my favorites from this disc? Talk about "opening oneself up."

Anyway, Kim Fowley makes an appearance alongside Teenage Fanclub in our ongoing (actually, hopefully ending here) series of Tunes By Problematic Individuals. He sounds rather "enhanced" here; it's sad to listen to, knowing what we know (I'm still being "coy about stuff"), but essential.

You Think It’s Over Now, But We’ve Only Just Begun: Transmission 364, 2017 August 25

• September 10th, 2017

sgt_pepper_knew_my_father.jpg Welcome to the first of two consecutive episodes in which I find myself playing "problematic" people. First up is Michelle Shocked, whom I never "got" and certainly don't get now. But what am I to do? Junior was sitting in with me, and as part of our normal "thing," we were playing full sides of records; are the other five artists on Side 2 of Sgt. Pepper Knew My Father to be blackballed? [In all honesty I do think, pace Junior, that I'd be happy with less Courtney Pine, even though I've only played him once!]

One of my goals in doing this whole Bombast program, at least as I faintly remember it, was to see if I could give up a bit of control and open myself up to the authenticity of circumstances and other people. How is that going? I'm probably feeling a bit uncomfortable when I remark, about an hour in, that 20 minutes of Elvis Costello (a birthday observance) followed 20 minutes of the Beatles isn't exactly ON BRAND. And what, for heaven's sake, is Seeming? As I told Alex I am very impressed with his record; I hear new things in it with each listen. I'm afraid it's not exactly my cup of tea and I've never been more convinced by a record that that isn't the record's fault. So that is something!

We Smoked in Heaven and We Laughed Off Hell: Transmission 363, 2017 August 23

• September 5th, 2017

happy_mondays_-_peel_sessions.jpg Feels like regular service for the first time in nearly a month. I was in my usual time slot--following "the Fre(ida) Pile"--and Junior was in town, so she didn't have to deliver her bit via apple voice memo. This program gives me pleasure, more than I expected (if only I could feel this in real time!), despite segues about which I can only say that I must have understood at some point what I was trying to do. A listener phoned in to give kudos, which is distressingly rare.

And, "finally," Happy Mondays provided the featured disc--heavy, I can report, on the Squirrel and G-Man era tunes. (Hot take: that album is better than Bummed.) Early entries in the "Physical Evidence" series included anecdotes about the actual disc played--who was the person who found himself able to write these??? I'm not up to it, other than to say that the aforementioned Squirrel got me through a very tough time. This (John) Peel Sessions disc doesn't ring a bell in terms of when I acquired it, though I just implied why I did so.

The Sound have made appearances in some recent playlists, I think because The Blog That Celebrates Itself put out a tribute and I decided I would rather hear the originals. Poor Adrian Borland: his band, like the Chameleons and the Comsat Angels, was something that simply missed me when it was happening. Blame it on radio, or record distributors, or whatever. White Postpunk Guys, all--playing them to see if they can make me feel anything. At times they do.
