The Ugly American: Transmission 135, 2014 July 4

00:0000:00 airtime just lands in my lap and I must figure out what to do with it. This is one of those times. The "Time Spent Listening" people were out of town, most of them, and Guy LeBatard was off chasing some Situationist adventure or other. The Fourth of July being the most redneck of all holidays, I often like to spend it hiding in a dark, quiet place, so the Kenny Ritter Memorial Studio seemed pretty hospitable on this day.

Confession: I just don't have as many records by Americans as I probably should, being one. It's mostly Africans, Jamaicans, and lots of Britons. I don't know what the explanation is. I could definitely use some more Bo Diddley, though. On that note, the only thing "more American" than Bo Diddley is money, and this was yet another program where I had to talk about it, so that happens.
