Things Known and Things Unknown: Transmission 172, 2014 December 11

pellmellflowsmall.jpgEvery time I say I need to slow down on the fill-in programs, along comes another fill-in program. This happened on a Thursday night that was cold enough to keep our snow pack intact, and on which Joe of "Joe Show" fame was out of town. I'm not really expected to turn up my nose at prime time, am I?

Listening back to the previous program, it doesn't seem as aggressive as I let on. This one, however, is full of rock. "This black person likes his rock and roll," I was telling a friend earlier in the evening. And I do, damn it. A good chunk of Flow, in a previous life, served as the soundtrack for a brilliant play, written by a dear friend, on which Lady C and I worked. It perfectly captures fraternal love, memory, disconnection, vast, stupid deserts, and "slow cars and sudden death," as a Legend once said.

I am still prone to playing 15 minutes of drifting synths, as I do halfway through this program. But when else am I going to thank seemingly every benefactor the station has in a single voice-over? I am thankful. As I was telling said friend, this radio thing came along when I needed something to come along, and I still need it.
