Veering Back into the Usual Unprofessionalism: Transmission 385, 2017 December 19

December 29, 2017

loney_dear_small.jpg At long last, a well-executed program. I am in another of those troughs, it seems; it took an opportunity for "hero time," Godfrey's sudden indisposal--is that a word?--for me to show my best radio self. Unlike DJ Danelectro, who preceded me on this night, I couldn't plan or summon much holiday spirit, but perhaps hearing this program within the appropriate season will conjure up some of the hoped-for magic. My built-in "excuse," insofar as I need one, is that there would be two more programs between this one and "the big day."

Surely there are better segues than "Vicar in a Tutu" transitioning into "Crystal Pleasure," but I am willing to be wrong about this. Elsewhere there are moments that vary between lovely and weird and often achieve both qualities. Additionally we see the welcome return of Blancmange! I say so because someone phoned in specifically to tell me how awesome that track is. It must be true.
