If Your Heart’s Strong, Hold On: Transmission 421, 2018 August 22

death_in_vegas_-_honey.jpg Good evening, music lovers, or morning, or afternoon, or whenever it is you are reading this. Whatever time it is, it's early for an aside, but I must point out that I have "Dissidents" by Thomas Dolby stuck in my head due to its repetition of the phrase "my writing." That's been my hangup of late. "The old writer couldn't write anymore because he had reached the end of words," or whatever it was that William S. Burroughs said--I am feeling that. Nevertheless, here I am, trying.

I promise, I am almost but not quite as tired as you of programs that mark the beginning or end of this or that. We've had a lot of mileposts in recent months. But here's an existential one--this program marks 5 years, nine months during which I've been on the air at WRFI, which is the same length as my original radio tenure, at KDVS all those years ago. I wondered when this current adventure began how long it would last, and what it would "mean" as and if it outgrew my initial, "real" radio experience. I have to say, it feels pretty real at this point! Which means maybe I need to grow up and sharpen my technique a bit. We could begin with learning to say "Miss Ludella Black"; that seems as good a starting point as any.
