Was It a Mistake Or a Lie? Transmission 174, 2014 December 21

gangoffourpeelsessionsalbum.jpgThis theatre company I was involved with in high school used to have solstice parties, before it was cool. I remember these fondly. They and those people were more fun than Christmas. It is always good to do radio around this time of year, although I am trying as best I can to jettison nostalgia, among other things.

I hope your weekend was nice. Mine was terrible. I did this radio show in a mood one should never be in. Which is to say that this program is VERY FOCUSED and AWESOME. Here and there are some segues that don't quite work (I'm looking at you, Nick Cave) but I plow through them without a flinch, blink, or regret.

Do records ever take the place of people for you, either by choice or by accident? Yes, me too. There are a couple of these on this program. Here's to real friends, sentient and otherwise!

Halcyon, checking in, as I have been summoned. I must have been feeling weak when this program happened, because I caved in to the demands of the schedule. Clearly, my mind was on the sea, and why not? There is no poetry in lakes or creeks.

To address the present: it seems as though my services are no longer required at WRFI, which is probably to our mutual benefit. There will be one more program, for certain, and then after that, who knows? From time to time I will gradually complete the archive with posts like this one, but for now this is an actual departure. Find me on Naked Island, perhaps?

We Would Go On As Though Nothing Was Wrong: Transmission 173, 2014 December 16

preston-28-february-1980-5246461551c4b.jpgDear internet friends, here is a program you haven't yet heard, unless you were waiting patiently online for our stream to wake up (and why not?), which it did about 15 minutes from the end of the program. This one really felt like the old days, an EXCLUSIVE local-only broadcast. I'm trying to make lemonade out of this.

The Joy Division recording captured on the Preston record is wonderfully ragged, which is how I like my JD--sounding like a rock band. As a teen I was infatuated with New Order. A friend gave me a copy of Still, telling me, "if you like New Order then you need to hear this." Or something like that. Anyway, I was failing to see the point. There wasn't an "Age of Consent" to be found here, or a "Dreams Never End," "Love Vigilantes," "Elegia"...much less a "Blue Monday." What was the big deal? Then I put the second record on--better. It was "Disorder" that flicked the switch. I was actually disappointed to hear the Unknown Pleasures version, and I totally "get" the band's lukewarm feelings about the Martin Hannett records. Origin stories--what are they? Anyway, hopefully soon we'll get to some stuff on Side 1 of Preston, which is even more messed-up and even more perfect.

Bonjour. LeBatard here, in the frozen north. Four months ago I produced this radio program, right here. Goodness knows what I was thinking on this hot August night. But I can guarantee that I was not thinking about a drifter that I had killed just for fun.

For my part, I do drift, mostly. Predominantly, I just drift. I don't know what else one is to do in these times, except perhaps read tedious blog posts. I hope you are at least reading this on a mobile, as part of some adventure. At any rate, If I had to nail down some kind of "theme" or "connecting thread" to this episode, I suppose it would be "the mind," but Kid Catharsis tells me these things have to happen in threes, so no dice. You're on your own, as always.

Things Known and Things Unknown: Transmission 172, 2014 December 11

pellmellflowsmall.jpgEvery time I say I need to slow down on the fill-in programs, along comes another fill-in program. This happened on a Thursday night that was cold enough to keep our snow pack intact, and on which Joe of "Joe Show" fame was out of town. I'm not really expected to turn up my nose at prime time, am I?

Listening back to the previous program, it doesn't seem as aggressive as I let on. This one, however, is full of rock. "This black person likes his rock and roll," I was telling a friend earlier in the evening. And I do, damn it. A good chunk of Flow, in a previous life, served as the soundtrack for a brilliant play, written by a dear friend, on which Lady C and I worked. It perfectly captures fraternal love, memory, disconnection, vast, stupid deserts, and "slow cars and sudden death," as a Legend once said.

I am still prone to playing 15 minutes of drifting synths, as I do halfway through this program. But when else am I going to thank seemingly every benefactor the station has in a single voice-over? I am thankful. As I was telling said friend, this radio thing came along when I needed something to come along, and I still need it.

That’s My Headache, Don’t You Worry ‘Bout Me: Transmission 171, 2014 December 9

automatschneidertmbootleg.jpgOn the night of this particular show, everyone in the area (seemingly) was flipping out over a weather forecast. A civilization-ending storm had appeared out of nowhere (because that's what they do) and we all needed to cancel all outings. Apparently. I need hardly say that none of the warnings came true, that it barely drizzled, and that this program proceeded as it would have anyway, and it was great, even if I am the one saying so.

Commentary--there are some expensive releases out there these days. That Destroy All Monsters box is, like, $80 or so for a mere 3 records. I get that it's from Spain and all but damn, what good is a dysfunctional economy with millions of unemployed people if the rest of us can't get stuff for cheap? I mean, right? Also, can we stop calling things "limited?" What isn't?

Also also: I have the opposite of seasonal affect disorder. Cold and snow make me really happy, so get ready for some unfocused and terrible shows!

Krampus Hasn’t Taken You; That’s A Good Sign: Transmission 170, 2014 December 5

peterbuckopium.jpgWith a mixture of happiness and malaise I present to you what turned out to be an excellent program, which I am pretty sure only I have heard. Occupying the "Test Pattern" time slot straddling the midnight hour last Friday, I observed Krampusnacht and the faste feast of St. Nicholas Peter. Doing radio on holy days used to be something that fueled my soul. Now? I don't know, and I'm scared that I don't know.

This recovering altar boy (it's not what you think) used to love doing radio during Advent, and especially on December 24. I think I managed to do the latter every single year, back at the old radio station. Granted, I wasn't doing it after midnight, so that might be a thing, but still I feel like I am chasing thrills that aren't coming back. I feel like a character in a Hallmark Christmas movie, jaded, needing to believe, needing a seasonal miracle.

Wouldn't it be great if Krampus were real? I feel like that myth is the direct negative of the Santa Claus idea. On the 25th, you wake up to find your stocking full--he does exist! On the morning of December 6, however, you wake up to find that all the world's worst people are still here--he doesn't exist. I find the whole thing very rude.

No time to dwell on it. Those thrills aren't getting any closer.

Halcyon here, still chronicling the summer. I see that six weeks had passed between my previous flight and this one. It is reassuring that I refused to conform to the schedule I was assigned. No one can miss me if I don't go away.

It looks like I borrowed some of Kid Catharsis's records for this particular program. I see a lot of things on this playlist that I had been meaning to spin, at some point, but did not get to until this particular departure. "Liquid Light Forms," indeed. They are in my line of vision all the time.

Meanwhile, Uptown, The Deejay Play: Transmission 169, 2014 December 2

mutabarukacheckit.jpegThis program marks a return to Tuesday evening normalcy, which also means a return to the world of mistakes. I'd suggested a few weeks ago that anger gave me a focus, and I was not feeling that way on this particular night. The snow was falling, and I was full of holiday cheer, if you know what I mean. I'd met up with an old friend from a previous life, and despite the fact that she thinks there are child-labor violations in my use of Junior as voice-over talent (AS IF THE GIRL DOESN'T GET PAID IN CANDY AND PANCAKES), a good time was had.

Nevertheless it's rough going at times. In my defense, I think, looking back, that it was mostly the machines' fault. The CD player only wanted to play about a minute and a half of Los Straitjackets, for some reason, and the turntable needed forcing to yield a Mutabaruka song. Oh yes, on the subject of friends--it was an old comrade, Ben, who introduced me both to Mutabaruka and Augustus Pablo one "winter" evening--probably at a solstice party or something. Precious memories!

Halcyon here. What a crazy six months it has been. I have been doing radio all too often, and too regularly. I should be singing as the birds do, but these "volunteer" situations have a way of roping you in.

Anyway, this program was the first time I had guests in the cockpit proper. They seemed to enjoy themselves. For my part, I improvised more than perhaps I should have, and that always seems to mean living in the past.

I hope this warm-weather program brings cheer to you in this cold-weather season. May all your dreams be "of the inmost light!"
