02/12/10: New Show, “You Broke the President…”February 13, 2010
Here’s the debut of my new monthly program on KBOO. I’ll be on every second Friday of the month from 10pm to Midnight. It’s so new, you can smell the new show smell. I haven’t even named it yet.
I’m pretty excited. It’s a fun time and being at the end of the week means it won’t affect my home and work life too adversely.
It’s also right before my friend and radio mentor Daniel’s show, The Outside World, so there’ll be nearly five hours of mind splintering radio for you at least once a month!
And this night was especially fun, as I got to hang out with Alejandro Ceballos, who was the last minute sub for the slot before me. He played some amazing Avant Garde, experimental and Prog music from Mexico. His shows never cease to amaze and he’s undoubtedly one of the coolest cats I’ve ever met. Check out KBOO for future plans for him and his show.
I started tonight’s show with something from Nurse With Wound’s May the Fleas of a Thousand Camels Infest Your Armpits and Space Music, mixed together simultaneously. I then played a piece from Big City Orchestra’s big 30th anniversary show, which was Wobbly, Phineas Narco and The Evolution Control Committee doing Beatle Rape live on Jan. 31st of last year. We rocked out to LCD Soundsystem, played some Macedonian (Kismet, covering Joy Division) and Polish (the unpronounceable Księżyc) music and then did our little tribute to Abraham Lincoln and the President with Disney’s Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln, some Firesign Theater, Negativland’s Godbull, A Sen. Edward McKinley Dirksen LP, Gallant Men, Ray Martin’s The Sounds of Sight and The Union Oil Co.’s The Constitution LP. It all ended with Jim Larrance’s wonderful mashup of a children’s record.
