You Know How To Sing, You’re a Diplomat: Transmission 469, 2019 June 5

October 11, 2019

Gaye_Su_Akyol.pngAt the beginning of June, everything was "normal" for me. Surely I was preparing for #theorycamp, all by myself, without a student assistant. I was avoiding the work that needed doing at home--getting ready for our move. Lady Catharsis and I were squabbling, whether it was about that or something else. Check out her "Listening Parlour" intro! She was not having it on this day. But she is a professional, a "diamond," if you will.

I am going through the motions in writing this blurb, just as I must have been going through the motions on this broadcast. Nevertheless it is a solid first hour, "close to the platonic ideal," as my notes say (even my notes are pretentious and full of shit). The Leathers, Captain Wardrobe, and Lurkers segues were terrible, if I recall, and I probably don't. As always, the music in between was good. All of this, though, comes with the subtext of a heavy sigh, as this "concept" of the program is approaching its end. Do you know what isn't going through the motions, though, what isn't accompanied by sighing? The Psychedelic Furs. No misgivings about that.
