Put Death in My Hands and I Will Pay with It For Sure: Transmission 399, 2018 March 21

cocteau_twins_-_head_over_heels_rear.jpg We are at the mercy of various record companies' apparent suicide missions. A number of rarities (and deservedly so) will see the light of day once again, soon, and in our perverse attempt to keep up with the times for our half-dozen devoted listeners we'll be trotting our copies out as Physical Evidence while they still "count." Which brings us to this broadcast's feature, a terrific record by Trisomie 21 that has been in my life for 30 years. I don't find myself listening to it often, and am just blown away by how good it is. Happy times! In college, I had a balding English teaching assistant / discussion leader who was likewise into Trisomie 21. I thought he was just trying to be cool in a "how do you do, fellow kids" kind of way. But of course, now I am him. These things always come back to you.

More happy feelings--there were no computer mishaps on this night, so all mistakes were my own. If I recall correctly there weren't that many, though there are awful segues into and out of Felt. But, really, we are all just one bad Felt segue from personal ruin. Aren't we?

Kept It Together, Held It Together: Transmission 398, 2018 March 14

• April 22nd, 2018
00:0000:00

tee_mango_tribute_5.jpg It was a Medway night, so naturally the segues were terrible. We need to get past that now. Additionally, it was a night of technical difficulties, not just conceptual ones. The computer in the studio went rogue and I was afraid I'd be stuck there all night. It's been a long time since I had that feeling. I didn't miss it.

Have I ever explained my multitasking during the program? Or: maybe I have and you are new here. I don't know. Anyway, we air a lot of pre-recorded public affairs programming, and every night somebody has to program this stuff to play automatically, on time, the next day. This is a thing I used to do every night--for, like, two straight years--but I'm down to once a week. Wednesday is my night because I would rather not have to "dial in" while someone else is in the control room.

So that's why this program might sound worse than usual, but only a little bit worse. The more you know!

Golden Vibrations: Transmission 397, 2018 March 7

• April 19th, 2018

sefton_stranded_in_passion.jpg You should listen," I said about this program prior to its airing. "It will be good." Verily, I think it was. How often does that happen? Memory may fail me in this regard, but I am trying out a new thing with myself: Benefit Of The Doubt. How am I doing? Feedback welcome.

So I mentioned last time out that a universe was ending--this is the first program from a new, more cautious world. Honestly the past seven weeks have been so full of stress and have gone by so quickly (am I having fun, or something?) that I don't remember what this "felt" like so I can't give you a proper account. To begin with, I guess that it must have been cold, but who can tell anymore? And with that kind of a beginning, is there any point continuing?

If we must talk about things we know, I know that Causa Sui was a highlight, as were SKRS & GULLS, Ride, Leslie Winer & Jay Glass Dubs, The Apostles, and Petar Dundov. What a strong finish! Sometimes there is a point in continuing, just maybe not with speculation and words.

Original Phrasing, Dialogue Verbatim: Transmission 396, 2018 February 28

• April 9th, 2018
00:0000:00

silvia_kastel_air_lows.jpg I'm back! Did you miss me? Well, I guess it doesn't have to be mutual. I've missed you, even though I've been "here" every week. This time out, it's a return to one of our recurring themes: "Programs That Aired On The Final Night of a Now-Dead Universe." I suppose every program is such a program, when you consider the "multiverse" and all that, but I only know it's such a program some of the time, and in retrospect. When I know it in advance it will surely be the last time.

And let me tell you: this new universe, which began the night after this program aired, sucks ass. Things are less stable and cozy than I thought they were--a remarkably low bar--and I am filled with worry all of the time. Fittingly, time has frozen since the transition, and it is still winter even now. Are we living in Narnia? Will there be Christmas? It all remains to be seen.

It's fitting, then, that Volume 15 is our special "record" of the evening. That is a lost world too. Songs like "Outside"--where did they go, and when?

More Dirt, More Germs: Transmission 395, 2018 February 21

• March 6th, 2018
00:0000:00

adult_detroit_house_guests.jpg Welcome to this week's edition of the program. "Solid" is the word that comes to mind when asked to describe it, though of course no one asked. It's not pantheon-level work in this broadcast but it is a good selection of tunes, delivered without incident. Can we hope for more, in these troubled times? Sadly I'm not sure we can.

Notes: I just found out, and by accident, pretty much, what a "jawn" is. I am so out of touch with the youth! It embarrasses me. Also, the Sam de la Rosa record seems to be a first issue, not a reissue. I can't recall what I said about it during the broadcast, but it sounds so satisfyingly old school (why am I out of touch, again) that I was sure that it came from another time. Finally, it took Lady Catharsis to point out to me that "The Chauffeur" is a Duran Duran song, originally. It seems I have much to learn!

Night of Forced Romantic Consumption: Transmission 394, 2018 February 14

• February 22nd, 2018
00:0000:00

20_jazz.jpg I had actually hoped to do a romantically-themed feature for this week's "special time together," as I have taken to calling it. But, as luck would have it, I'd been sick the week prior, and had lost all interest in any sort of planning. So I did the best I could with what I had, leaving us with only "moods and atmospheres" to mark our first Valentine's Day broadcast. But what else is this holiday about, other than keeping the chocolate / florist / greeting card industries afloat?

Strangely--unless it isn't strange--this program "works" for me. Good tunes, good segues--mostly. A brief rock excursion that doesn't make much sense but maintains the overall quality. And Barry Manilow! I have done much, much worse.

See It for Yourself, but Not Through the Eyes: Transmission 393, 2018 January 31

• February 20th, 2018
00:0000:00

MAUS-TEENAGE-WITCH.png Do you have a favorite genre of diary entry? I do. Mine is "I couldn't tell you what happened on this program if my life depended on it." I am blaming this on sickness--literal sickness that has dogged me at various times this year, including the week after this show aired, when I was listening back to it, such that I feel I haven't really been in my right mind at any point in 2018, and a general malaise that has me not wanting to do or think about much of anything. Isn't it good to hear from me?

So anyway, I can't tell you how this show "felt" at the time, though it was good to be able to speak properly (inasmuch as I do) and not to have to commemorate a death (can't help seeing myself as Casey Kasem here). Looking at the playlist, I can faintly remember some good segues. The selection looks tight. I think you will enjoy this, but who am I to say?

Drink the Long Draught, Dan: Transmission 392, 2018 January 24

• February 5th, 2018
00:0000:00

markesmith.png I'm going to be petty for a moment and talk about an inconvenient aspect of death. It can really mess with the plans of the living. Here I was, planning on featuring a Leslie Winer record (NB that I did anyway) and in comes the news that Mark E Smith has died. What on earth am I supposed to do with this? I did what I could, and what I always do--I played a Fall song on the radio.

Should I have gone with two hours' worth? Maybe, though frequent listeners will already be overly familiar with my Fall habit. I certainly didn't become acquainted with the band through large doses. Funnily enough, my first relevant memory is of hearing a tune in the car, age 16 or 17, not knowing who it was, having it stick in my head firmly enough to drive me crazy with curiosity, and finding out years later that it was "Barmy." There was also Friend of Bombast Jeremy, who had a copy of Palace of Swords Reversed that he would try to get me to listen to but I couldn't seem to be bothered, most of the time. Still, things stuck with me--bits of "Leave the Capitol," "Fit and Working Again" and "Kicker Conspiracy," and all of "Marquis Cha-Cha." At some point I bought this compilation and was bowled over by the rendition of "Wings." (Ah, this one, here! So good!) I wouldn't call this succumbing instantaneous or gradual; it was very random and staccato. Things just lingered, waiting to be latched onto. Seems fitting.

It's been weird, the last 20 years, watching the man's personal decline--hearing about the belligerence, the drinking, the verbal and physical violence. I have to say that I haven't made sense of it--I'm unable to bracket off the "product" from the personal, but I also can't stop listening. I can't quit him though I know I probably should. It is probably like this for other people.

If this seems like an abrupt ending, that's how life works.

Poured Kerosene on Some Bridges: Transmission 391, 2018 January 17

• February 1st, 2018
00:0000:00

fake_laugh.jpg Finally a good program from 2018! It seems that maybe I have not "lost" it after all. Unburdened by "physical evidence" and "the listening parlour" (I do seem to take joy in saying "it's a featureless program tonight"), I am able to make sense of some segues. Some. It's about damn time. Now, if I could just stop playing Smiths records.

Seems noteworthy that I guess out loud that it's "Roving Iinternational" and not "Raving International." Is that a sign of age, or tiredness, or both, not to mention whatever degree of general malaise I am feeling? To be fair, I'm not really up for raving OR roving these days. A year into--I can hardly name it--our current era, let's say, I'd prefer much of the time to stay in bed. "Were it not that I have bad dreams."

All This Peaceful Wilderness: Transmission 390, 2018 January 10

• January 28th, 2018
00:0000:00

trench_town_dub.jpg I am beginning to think 2018 might not be a good year for this program. You have heard, no doubt, of "women laughing alone with salad." Consider this modification--me, crying alonne with my mixtape--and you begin to get a picture of how I have experienced this particular broadcast. It is not for the faint of heart, to begin with--it is a dark, dubby, moody two hours, but then I am such a person and these are such times. The segues are incomprehensible, which means either that Trench Town Dub is the greatest record of all time or I've completely lost it. I'll let you decide!

Note: I speculate that the recordings on this "physical evidence" record were done prior to its release date of 1989. Well, no duh--what I meant was "significantly earlier," but I may have even been wrong about that. If I'm not mistaken, I hear a gated drum sound on at least one of these tracks, so maybe this is mid-to-late 80s stuff. Yes, I listen carefully even when I am annoyed at what I do.

At least my cold is gone. The dulcet tones are back, baby!
