Bombast meets Sapsquatch: Transmission 4, 2012.12.08

December 13, 2012

[UPDATE 2013 Feb 17: Realized that final track of show was actually a repeat of "Real Gone Crazy Dub." This program is archived now, so a golden moment lives forever.]

At times, it was difficult to get people to commit to airtime during the WRFI fundraiser.  We were / are a bit understaffed, not everyone has programming ideas or a "concept" for an ongoing program, others have ideas for programs but aren't ready to roll them out yet, people have better things to do with their Saturday afternoons [not me, of course], and so on.  This is one of two instances in which I stepped in to fill a void.  I just loaded up my case with a bunch of random reggae and ska collections.  Naturally, the lack of planning led to a great show.

"Sapsquatch" is not a person but a side venture undertaken by Josh, who is now a friend of the program.  We had a really good conversation, both on and off-air.  He'll be back on the show, and we're hoping he also gets a show of his own.

Meanwhile: if you're living in the Ithaca / Watkins Glen / Odessa area, consider "liking" Gardens 4 Humanity and attending their Pop-Up Kitchen series.  I really do miss the ABC Cafe, despite how deadpan I sound at the moment I say it.

Lots of mistakes during this show--playing the wrong track on a cd, etc.  "No show would be complete," and all that.  No "Listening Parlour" selections this time out due to short notice.  Sorry, peeps, you're stuck with me.
