The challenge: do an entire show using only artists I've never played before on my or anyone else's program. Slightly harder than I thought, at least at first, and I guess that playing solo tracks from artists I usually play could be construed as cheating (I mean, Colin Newman's first solo album has more personnel in common with Wire than, say, a contemporary Fall track does with, well, just about any previous Fall track, but such are the conundrums and puzzlements that make life one long squirt of anxious bile), but ah did it. See:

Good show. I like the last track (seems like I've heard it somewhere before...).
