caribouvibrationensemble.jpgAnother "IDGAF" program which, naturally, turned out pretty well. The power of that attitude is such that even with a dreaded, round number of 10 songs, I managed not to call down the wrath of the radio gods. [As I write this, a week and a half later, I have the benefit of knowing that it will happen in or after the next program.]

Old times: "Bela Lugosi's Dead," which I wound up not playing because Joe played it on his program earlier in the evening [long tracks have their virtues, especially during playlist reporting], was once the subject of a moratorium at my old radio station--half a decade after its release, people were playing it so damn much that the music department had to order them not to. "Teen Love" was another song with which they could have done that, but didn't, for some reason. I always felt that the Flux album was so good that people ought to play it often enough to invoke a moratorium, but looking back I think maybe I was the only one who liked Flux. So it goes.
