I Think the Sunlight Is Confusing Me: Transmission 78, 2013 December 1


Here is a rare daytime program that I did in someone's hour of need. Or was it the station's? How desperate must one be to call on BOMBAST, I wonder? No fun staring into that void, I am sure. Anyway, guys, I'm trying to save the new material for the mothership program on Wednesday nights, and in December I always fall victim to nostalgic impulses, so I thought I would do an "all-compilation" show.

If you've been listening at all, you know that as much as I hate to make mistakes, I consider them part of the magic of radio. There's a LOT of magic in this program, you guys! Holy cow, hour two--I have no idea what happened, but it's pretty wild, on the "excellence in content and technique" front. At any rate, it is a thing that happened.

This would be a good place to write something about how my love affair with the compilation began--insofar as we consider "good place" within the context of this site's function as a diary while I am alive and Virtual Me once I am not. But I'm in a hurry today, and way behind on episodes, and I am hoping that there will be a truly special occasion in the future where I can rhapsodize about that.

In the meantime, enjoy retro December! Brace yourselves--there's a lot more where this came from.

[UPDATE: ha ha, "Butterfly Catcher," good lord.]
