Hundreds of Miles Going Nowhere: Transmission 490, 2019 October 23

February 1, 2020

iori.jpgI sound sick and I sound like I'm using my laptop (again), which would mean that the station's equipment has predictably failed. But for me to fail less than the gear is an achievement, and I will take it. Anyway, the technical situation is due to improve, or at least that's what I hear from my inside sources.

Since this program was broadcast, 101 days ago now, I've gone on the air 18 times. I just finished listening to a transmission from 66 days ago. I'm currently editing a sound file from 39 days ago--6 shows ago.

Content-wise, this playlist looks like the "old" me, so who knows what I was thinking on this night--the usual explanation, clearing out some songs I'd been meaning to play, trying to minimize the guilt of not having played them, ignoring the bigger question of why I would have felt that way in the first place, doesn't work. I was probably finding a lot of things "not working" in my new situation. I'd started turning to comfort food and drinking more alcohol, skipping the gym, telling myself this was all temporary, etc. So thank goodness for mechanical competence, for a couple of hours at least.
