The Darkest Night Was the Day: Transmission 231, 2015 August 25

jealousofshitandshine.jpgAnother weekday, another program: here's something else I did, seemingly long ago. On this night I was clearly getting some stuff out of my system; it felt good at the time, and still does, I daresay. This mixtape ripples with anger, but perhaps you will get a different impression (or, if you share mine, will find it useful at least some of the time).

Diary: lately I've been reading Memoirs of a Geezer by Jah Wobble. I have to admit that I am an unfocused reader these days; I'm unfocused about a lot of things. Something that struck me was one really brief conversation the author had with a friend in which he (re)affirmed his life's purpose. If only it were that easy! I could use that conversation, or that friend, right about now. I have been certain for a while that my "purpose" is not volunteer disc jockeying or any of the behind-the-scenes stuff I do. So all of this is just biding my time. Has if felt that way to you? And biding it for what, I wonder?

The Freaks and the Misfits Are All That Remain: Transmission 230, 2015 August 19

differentfordomeheadslarge.jpgHello again, it's me again. If you are a visitor to this site only, and don't listen live, it's been a while since you've seen or heard anything new from this program. Apologies--it's been a wild, sordid, depressing summer, as they all seem to be. In my defense, I have been doing lots of radio all the while, and you could listen live, you know.

At any rate here is a program that features one of my favorite records. Different for Domeheads was not the first Creation comp I encountered, but as Horatio would say, "it follow'd hard upon." I tend not to do well with playing records at the "appropriate" time of year but for me this will always be a summer record. "July skies" indeed, sun and anger as relentless as Slaughter Joe. This is what the last couple of months have been.

Witness What My Knuckles Find: Transmission 229, 2015 August 16

birthdaypartypeelsessions.jpgThis was a night on which we sat in for "Seeking a Thread." The program bristles with unintentional comedy as I get things stuck in my throat and have to pronounce a battery of things beyond my capability. Oh, and there is also The Birthday Party. I am one of those people who never quite "matured" into thinking that Nick Cave "solo" was a better thing, though I enjoy his records well enough. I really miss this band, right here.

I don't remember the nature of the "many nagging complaints" to which I refer, thankfully. The thought of searching my email in search of a mildly sardonic joke scares me. Ah, sweet oblivion!

Ah, on second thought, I probably deserved whatever complaints came my way.
