Well, I told you to check back late tonight...
So, the show was about 3 hours, 45 minutes. Was it 3 hours, 45 minutes too long?
I don't know, it kind of sucked because I couldn't find my CD onto which I burned Rose Melberg's cover of "Cupid". I had the 7", but... I'm not going to go into why I don't have it. Let's just say that it's a very emo story.
And then, on the way to the station, I was running from my place to the station because Dricore (who had fortunately been doing a show all night) had signed off the station and was about to leave. While I was running, my backpack flew open and some CDs scattered onto the ground. In the pouring rain. It sucked having to play 52 pickup with my CDs on the sidewalk, but it added injury to insult to have everything get wet. :(
And then, someone called to say that Bruce Burger (host of Rare Finds) died of cancer. Double :(
(I wasn't close to him, but that's still too bad. I do have one really cool memory of him, though. At this one party, people were having a drum circle. Bruce Burger showed up and brought his accordian to play polkas and other old songs with the drum circle. It sounded really cool, actually, and I really appreciated the surrealism of that.)
So, I do I have any good news? Well... not really.
Did any of you catch the fact that there was something that I didn't do on today's show? Something that you'd think I would do considering the time of year, but I didn't do it at all? DON'T POST A COMMENT IF YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! I'm deliberately trying not to be too overt about it. But yeah. I might do that thing next week.
Oh, and I should also mention that whenever I get really into my background music, it's not some sort of schtick. It's just that those video game remixes and such are really awesome.
Anyway, here are the links to download today's show:
