little_annie_short_sweet.jpg With this mixtape we say good riddance to 2017, an awful year from our perspective, truly one of the worst. My perspective may be too narrow and that may be the problem, but this is my opinion and I am sticking with it. The slow descent into fascism, the degradation of fact, personal stresses and crises, an aborted vacation, an austere holiday season, Lady C falling and concussing herself--right now the idea that time only moves in one direction and therefore we will never revisit these moments is the only thing giving me any hope.

So we say "adieu" by featuring the Legendary Little Annie (yep, still not getting paid)--and I can think of no one better for this occasion. To tell the truth about this particular sausage of a program, I have the cd that combines Short and Sweet with In Dread, but if I recall correctly--sorry, too lazy to consult the database at the moment--we have already featured the latter. So it goes! There are odd moments in this program where one song ends abruptly, giving way to the next song's extremely slow and quiet fade-in. A good program for headphone listening, then! Or you could blast it on your hifi and lull your neighbors repeatedly into false senses of calm.

We’re Going To Touch Part of You That’s Never Been Touched: Transmission 387, 2017 December 23

• January 2nd, 2018
00:0000:00

coil_winter_solstice_reverse.jpg Since I never get to, or am never allowed to, do a WRFI broadcast on Christmas Eve, I suppose I will have to make do with another Festivus program. (This may be "inside talk" of the sort with which we had an attraction / repulsion thing going during this broadcast, but whatever.) Nevertheless, this was a good outing. Lady Catharsis and I had a nice mix of "chestnuts" and tunes we had never before played, and the banter was cheery and good. In an added bonus, I resisted the temptation to share all 24 minutes of Oval with our listeners.

And there was reason for cheer--it was the second night of our "Christmas vacation." Little did I know at the time that it would be ten days of mediocre sleep and troubled dreams, most of them dreams of a previous life I am well out of. Looking back, maybe our mood on this night was "premature," or "misplaced," or whatever, but hindsight doesn't cloud the fact that this was a fun show to do, and (I hope) to hear.

jazz_butcher_gift_of_music_label.jpg This program was the second night of a back-to-back engagement. (I brought this on myself.) It was also the fourth program in eight nights. (I brought that on myself too.) If you had asked me beforehand, and no one did, I would never have volunteered! I am so exhausted these days, physically and emotionally. Yet I seem up for it on this night. It must be solstice magic!

Notes: I suspect I've said just about as much as there is for me to say about the Jazz Butcher, except that I find myself enjoying these grainy, older recordings more than I used to. Elsewhere: I am certain the Indie Gods are punishing me for ending an honest to goodness ROCK BLOCK at the beginning of the program by going junglist all of a sudden, giving me (and you) a five-second dropout during "Night Vision" to contemplate the error of my ways. Nevertheless, it's true that I sell myself short during the backannounce. I am a Very Important Person. (And, by the way, so are you.)

Veering Back into the Usual Unprofessionalism: Transmission 385, 2017 December 19

• December 29th, 2017
00:0000:00

loney_dear_small.jpg At long last, a well-executed program. I am in another of those troughs, it seems; it took an opportunity for "hero time," Godfrey's sudden indisposal--is that a word?--for me to show my best radio self. Unlike DJ Danelectro, who preceded me on this night, I couldn't plan or summon much holiday spirit, but perhaps hearing this program within the appropriate season will conjure up some of the hoped-for magic. My built-in "excuse," insofar as I need one, is that there would be two more programs between this one and "the big day."

Surely there are better segues than "Vicar in a Tutu" transitioning into "Crystal Pleasure," but I am willing to be wrong about this. Elsewhere there are moments that vary between lovely and weird and often achieve both qualities. Additionally we see the welcome return of Blancmange! I say so because someone phoned in specifically to tell me how awesome that track is. It must be true.

My Cloudy Brain Remembers: Transmission 384, 2017 December 14

• December 26th, 2017
00:0000:00

Danvers_Omiyage.jpg This outing was less angry for us than the previous one. Indeed, in the intervening day we had come down from that infuriating telephone call and begun to feel remorse. Maybe that old lady--had we mentioned that it was an old lady?--was merely lonely and had difficulty communicating. Maybe we had shut her down in some way. Maybe she was a supporter of the station, or a would-be supporter, and we had alienated her (that probably happened in any case). We are extremely narcissistic and think our umbrage and words matter a lot!

Nevertheless, as we warned, we did not deliver a "lovely" program on this substitute occasion. (The previous program, The Joe Show, had "harmony" as its theme--is "theme" the right word when the songs literally featured harmonies? Is it not "style" or "feature?--making us wonder if we should return to "themed" programs, having burned ourselves out long ago.) But we did deliver a good, weird program, hopefully enjoyable whether you are old and lonely or young-ish and with healthy friendships.

Live in the Light and Breathe the Noise: Transmission 383, 2017 December 13

• December 22nd, 2017
00:0000:00

13_year_itch_2.jpg I was angry on this night, because a listener had made a request in an obnoxious way. "I like what I'm hearing," the caller said, "but this would kick it up a notch." (Who uses Chef Emeril catchphrases in 2017, you were probably wondering. This person.) Like, was it impossible to just ask for a song without intimating that it would make my program better? Requests are already problematic enough in this day and age. There's a tension between everything already being on the internet (as the requested tune was) and our particular status as a listener-supported station. We shouldn't have to be anyone's jukebox, but we more or less must. There is the odd person every now and then who doesn't have internet, but how big a financial backer is such a person going to be?

Anyway I won't poison your experience any further by telling you which song it was that I didn't plan on playing when the evening began. You'll have to figure that out on your own.

Snoring Dark Frequencies into the Night: Transmission 382, 2017 December 6

• December 12th, 2017
00:0000:00

peter_buck_st.jpg Please find attached the first December program of the year. It begins well! They all seem to begin well. In my previous life in the theatre, I always wanted to know that I was "in good hands" at the start of a performance. If I felt that way, I could forgive whatever mistakes and weirdness might happen later. If I didn't feel that way I would never feel comfortable. I hope this program makes you feel comfortable, at least at first.

Are there mistakes and weirdnesses here? I'm sorry, is this your first time visiting the podcast site? We start off with Peter Buck, the evening's featured artist, dropping a metric ton of f-bombs in his first song. It got me thinking--there was a time, not too long ago, when I would have felt rebellious playing such a tune. Now--my parents are listening (corollary--will I ever grow up?), I'm tired and sad, and language only seems to free the wrong people in this time.

Happy holidays!

To Those Who Offend You, Show Mercy: Transmission 381, 2017 November 29

• December 10th, 2017
00:0000:00

GH-1029_2_.jpg Here is the first post-Thanksgiving program, and therefore the first program of our sixth year on the air. It continues to blow my mind that they let me keep doing this. Back in 2012 I thought maybe I would get ten programs out of my WRFI experience if I didn't offend anybody. That I remain fixated on this--"wow, unbelievable"--and don't just accept it and move forward is what my therapist would call a "frozen shutdown response." I am working on it, I promise.

Ok, I am amused that right off the bat I called the Fort Romeau tune "EMO II." I don't care what anyone thinks. That is accurate. Synths and drum machines from "that time" are emotional. I am realizing that music is a time machine and there is an increasing list of rides I don't want to take. Fort Romeau--if you're reading--I enjoyoed your track!

Do your best this week not to freeze or shut down.

You’ve Made Me Suspicious of People Who Are Kind: Transmission 380, 2017 November 19

• December 4th, 2017

gerry_read_new_junk_city.jpg Looking back at this, the final program of our fifth year, I'm feeling better than I did the last time out. It's a slight improvement, but improvement matters! Fitting, isn't it, that this is a fill-in program, as there's no possible way we could have averaged 76 programs a year without them?! And here I was thinking that 2017 had been a light year in terms of this. As always, my perception is a bit off.

Typically, I can't wrap my mind around some of these segues. How could I have thought these would work? For every "Big Dream from a Small Room" into "Fool Babe" (not sure how that one made it into the program but there it is), there's an Akkord into The Smiths (not sure how much longer I can indulge my Morrissey fixation publicly). There is, additionally, at least one point where I begin to play a song for the second time on the night. But I am pretty sure it is a good song, and quality matters.

Asterisks in My Eyelids: Transmission 379, 2017 November 15

• November 28th, 2017
00:0000:00

the_comet_is_coming.jpg Lately I have been thinking a good deal about negativity--what its uses might be, what it says about the bearer, what it does to the soul. Depression has such a strong hold on me these days! But this is somewhat true of all days, my dear Bombasticons. Sometimes I even doubt that this program nourishes me, though I can't imagine life without it. And I might have to--a "little bird" tells me that our recent fundraiser generated some 20% of the station's annual budget. Should I rue the missing 80% or take delight that people love us enough to give what they gave? Should I borrow future grief over programs that won't air or should I be grateful that I have done nearly 400 of these?

Musical notes: that Durutti record, though legendary, arrived in awful shape for a new record--so much for ambivalence about negativity! But seriously, what is wrong with vinyl these days? I have had a couple of similar experiences recently. Segues--who gives a toss? In this program they are fairly bad, and hopefully the songs compensate for that.
