While every Bombast episode is a special snowflake, it is back to "normal" this week as I don't have a Hall of Legends induction or a celebrity interview to offer. This program features the usual assortment of tunes, plus a couple of tributes to people who will be missed, musically speaking and otherwise. Also, Lady Catharsis returns with a couple of "Listening Parlour" selections.
As summer rolls on, I am trying to schedule and work on some other "special" things for the program. I have verbal commitments from a couple of local bands to come on the program and perform live, and I have a few more Hall inductions in the proverbial pipeline. Scheduling the bands is proving to be a challenge--these people have the gall to invoke their "actual lives" as reasons not to come on the show at the drop of a hat.
Are you in the listening area for our terrestrial transmitters? Do you make music? Would your music "make sense" on Bombast? Are you not in possession of a life, and therefore reasonably available? Get in touch with me. You can write me a message here, at this site, or on Facebook, or through regular email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Synth duos especially welcome! Our control room is small and can't reasonably fit more than three persons with instruments. So drum machines, samplers, keyboards, and laptops are, as always, highly desirable.
