All You’ve Got To Lose Is Your Mind: Transmission 493, 2019 November 6

February 5, 2020

deena_abdelwahed_-_khonnar.jpgSomewhere I lost touch with what other people think about things and how other people perceive the world. Or is it losing commonality? Anyway, I started noticing this maybe 12, 13 years ago. There will be this event, or cultural phenomenon, and I will have a completely different impression of it than everyone around me. That seems too serious for "mere" depression, and yet I've managed to be a functional, working adult for most of that time. Unless I'm mistaken about that too--maybe none of this is actually happening. 

I'm bringing this up because I felt that this show was full of mistakes and bad choices, but station general manager Felix told me that I was "killing it" on this night. I think someone else complimented me too. So I don't know how to assess this broadcast, and I don't have any way of recapturing whatever made it special. Sorry about this!

Since this program was broadcast, 91 days ago now, I've gone on the air 16 times. I just finished listening to a transmission from 63 days ago. I'm currently editing a sound file from 36 days ago--6 shows ago. And I am scheduled to do a program tonight! What's going to happen? Who knows? It's so mysterious, so magical.

Honestly, looking at the playlist, it strikes me as an "overflow" type of program, a throwback, even though it was definitely a regular Wednesday night mothership occasion. I know that around this time I was a bit shaken at work and in life, having to deal with some heavy stuff. How did I do with it? You'll have to ask someone else.
