If You Finish, There’s Hot Chocolate: Transmission 249, 2015 December 2


comsatangelseyeofthelens.jpg"You need to figure out how to be nice to yourself." Both Lady Catharsis and my counselor tell me this, so I am guessing there is some truth to it. This will take some figuring, but I can start by saying this is a pretty good program, verbal gaffes notwithstanding.

I really, really embarrassed DJ Andrea with what I said about her program in the beginning. Were we joking? I'm not sure. I will say that everything I tell anyone about BOMBAST is meant to be repeated. I have no reservations about it. At any rate we do struggle to find an audience for our music programs at WRFI, stranded as we are between an older demographic that doesn't know how to use computers and a younger demographic that doesn't get its music from the radio. Is either demographic "white?" This is Ithaca, son. (...and Watkins Glen.)

BOMBAST has always strived to be music for depressed, middle-aged people of mixed race who may also suffer from anxiety and various "adaptive strategies" gone wrong. However many of us there are! I think we have succeeded, and I'm not even "being nice" to myself when I say that. I honestly think it is the truth.

As for repeating the words that other people say, I will strive to be better. "You had a thought," my counselor told me today, "but you didn't act on it." I don't always have to, except when I do.
