We return to the ordinary extraordinariness of the "alpha" program. I share a "Mr. D" anecdote that I hope I got right; otherwise embarrassment, my frequent companion, will return. Also, there's a skip in my brand new Design A Wave record that interferes with everyone's enjoyment of "Pentatonic Skull." Post-play inspection revealed that it was a long, curly hair that must have been sitting on the turntable mat. DAMN YOU STEPH.
It was dead hard to find a UB40 song I felt like playing. Little-known fact: when this program began nearly two years ago [!], I had a lot of free time on my hands, you guys. I was looking for some stuff to get into. Someone [was it Lady Catharsis?] suggested that I blog or something. I even created a Blogger [TM] page, which I suppose still exists. What kind of stuff was I going to write about? I guess the kind of material that might have caught Guy LeBatard's eye, for lack of a better description. Anyway I was this close to writing a "think" piece about the bankruptcy (both literal and...) of UB40. But then, like the Knight Bus, along came WRFI to spare everyone from that. And I haven't had free time since, thank goodness.
