AND AGAIN...

More retro-rockism. Crawling backwards through the wreckage. Call it what you will. Including late for dinner.

This one was the first show I did using my 40th birthday present, a brand-new laptop. As indefatigably old-school as I tend to be when doing these shows, I must say that having a fresh source (in addition to the usual turntables, CD players, cassette decks and live in-studio yodellers) to add to the on-air mix has proven quite exciting. Not in this particular episode so much - no, as with any attempt to grapple with new technology in real time, I spent an ungodly portion of it growling, shaking my fist at phantom antagonists, and using words that, if uttered on-mic and toted up correctly, would translate into about $2.6 million in FCC fines. Don't get me wrong, the old technology failed me just as much as the new stuff - y'know, you get a record, it says "33 1/3 RPM" on the sleeve, you don't imagine they just put it there because that was their best guess, do you? Yeah, neither did I. One doesn't get to hear the sounds of a record being played at 2/3rds speed, stopped, run backwards in panic, followed by the needle being angrily ripped from it and very audibly relowered onto the start of the tune, on the radio quite enough these days. An increasing plurality of American radio stations have gone largely if not wholly automated, which is why commercial radio is full of things like two commercials playing at once, songs beginning and ending at odd times, the phrase "ANOTHER ROCK BLOCK-OCK-OCK..." looping endlessly through the middles of songs, and pre-recorded DJs back-announcing songs they last played three days before. All offputting, bizarre, cold, sterile. Not this show, though - I promise you that, no matter what machinery is being used, all the massive fuckups you hear on my program are the result of 100% human error. That's my pledge to you, the listener.
