This theatre company I was involved with in high school used to have solstice parties, before it was cool. I remember these fondly. They and those people were more fun than Christmas. It is always good to do radio around this time of year, although I am trying as best I can to jettison nostalgia, among other things.
I hope your weekend was nice. Mine was terrible. I did this radio show in a mood one should never be in. Which is to say that this program is VERY FOCUSED and AWESOME. Here and there are some segues that don't quite work (I'm looking at you, Nick Cave) but I plow through them without a flinch, blink, or regret.
Do records ever take the place of people for you, either by choice or by accident? Yes, me too. There are a couple of these on this program. Here's to real friends, sentient and otherwise!
