Hero Time: Transmission 182, 2015 January 25


crampsdatewithelvisinner.jpgA few Sundays ago, I threw myself into a radio program on very short notice. It is a real Winter of Sickness in the listening area. I forget exactly what it was or who it was on this particular day, but someone couldn't go, so I did. I think maybe some work was happening, or supposed to happen, with the airplay computer, which would preclude airing pre-recorded material, so a warm body was necessary. I decided to be it; perhaps I even convinced myself that it would be like "the first time" at WRFI. That is my sickness.

Sadly it wasn't novel or nostalgic, but it was a pretty well-executed show for a while, multi-tasking notwithstanding. The selection was "haphazard," as I advertised, but things have a strange way of fitting together either better than I expect or much, much worse. I really did biff the beginning of that Cramps tune, though.
