Night Is Warm and the Stars Are Bright: Transmission 316, 2016 December 31


9j8dhz/rolling_stones_satanic_majesties.jpg Since we all had a free night, and the last night of the "calendar year" is a useless observance, the entire Catharsis Family Circus rolled into the WRFI studios. It was the first time we had done this in a while, so for those who don't live with her every day, Junior's performance on this episode is something of a...revelation, I daresay. I would be happy to listen to her program, if she had one, but I will also settle for her being a frequent guest on my program and deflating my pretensions (although considering Their Satanic Majesties Request a "masterpiece" is not a pretension). Elsewhere, Lady Catharsis shares a half-dozen "depressing" tunes with us, I completely botch a segue from Wanda Jackson to Thee Michelle Gun Elephant (I swear that one should have worked), and I play THE WRONG JUSTIFIED ANCIENTS OF MU-MU TRACK at the end of the program (it was supposed to be "Burn the Bastards").

I'm sure that, with all its shortcomings (at least I see them that way), this program will be a favorite for you listeners. More voices, actual debate, anyone in the studio besides me, etc. I know how these things work. So I guess it was good to close up 2016--a godawful year!--with a "good" show. We actually didn't do "that much" radio in 2016, "only" 60 programs, thanks to some wise policy (don't quote me on that) from management and my own hypering down. Here's to even fewer--and better--programs in 2017!
