Everyone Gets Heaven: Transmission 261, 2016 February 2


Curve-RadioSessions.jpg In what is now a statutorily rare gesture, I fill in for "The Griot Hour" on that stupidest of holidays, Groundhog Day. I won't develop or improve old theories here, but merely reiterate one: that a given music's inability to sit alongside other musics is directly proportional to its greatness. So here we have the much-plagiarized, little-appreciated Curve in the "Physical Evidence" feature. None of this is to say that all the other segues in the program, or even most of them, make sense. The fault is not in our records, but in our selves.

At this time of writing we are pouring one out for Skeptical Sunday, one of the few WRFI programs that pre-dated the launch of this one. I'm feeling aware of my own mortality in this moment. I don't know why this came on so suddenly, this realization that I do have "seniority" and have definitely logged more hours on air at this station than any other music host. What's it all for, I wonder.

I do try to launch into personal and political rants only when the issues directly involve me, so I'll simply note here that free-form radio stations "are" little more than the people who comprise them. That is the point, the upside and the downside. Personally I've been feeling the "downside" more often than not lately, as one beloved host after another closes up shop. I only feel the losses and I don't know what we're getting from the newbies, because I simply don't know. I've chosen not to know, so the responsibility is mine in a way, which is part of what hurts about this.

Anyway, that's quite enough, especially since I might be sufficiently crazy to try another post today. Happy Tuesday, everybody!
