She Understands There Are Problems: Transmission 454, 2019 March 17

Wanda_Jackson_0.jpgAlright, we're really out of date now. Familiar ground--feels good! Anyway, this is a fill-in program from about a month ago, executed in partial daylight, which Lady Catharsis and I both found somewhat confusing. I'll just make a blanket statement that this basically didn't work, for a number of reasons. Mostly it came down to me.

There were conflicting "concepts" of this program, and usually it works best when there is no concept. The "physical evidence" aspect of the show--the Wanda Jackson record--was alright. My "green" idea was lazy and bad, though in my defense I have heard people do entire "themed" programs based on entering a search term in Spotify (like, I don't know, "peace" and things like that) and playing an entire two-hour "playlist" based on songs with that term in the title. I'm reminding myself and you that I could be much worse.

Also, I biffed a bunch of segues and got very mad at myself behind the scenes. My foray into "sober history" wasn't great. But I stand by what I said about Carl Craig: you should definitely follow him!
