5/26/06 - Manchester

What do we have to say about the Manchester show, Lisa? Please say something because I can't think of anything. Seriously, whatever you say, I will type. Just throw out random words. It really doesn't matter. I can see you watching me type this and you'd better say something soon. Although it has to be irreverant and attempting to be witty but also self-deprecating or whatever the fuck else I usually do. Can you think of anything? Because we're running out of time. Hurry. Hurry. Lisa? Give me some sugar. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Thank you. But I mean some word sugar. Actually, forget it. This is much better. Fuck this paragraph. Let's just type the playlist and get out of here.

Wait, first there's that link to the recording. It's right here. Well not yet. It's still uploading. Okay we'll just skip ahead to the playlist. So this is out of order now because I have just typed the playlist. But who really cares? About any of this? Just in case.

Wait, why the fuck isn't this a hyperlink? You can't just click on it. You have to copy and paste it. That's so stupid. I didn't do anything different than I normally do.

5/19/06 Show - New York

Poor New York. First 9/11 happens and now this. My show, featuring all music from New York City and dedicated to America's firefighters, got cut off a tiny bit at the beginning and a lot bit at the end. I guess we were switching to a broadcast from another location. Thanks, other location. It was only a tribute to the brave men and women who put their lives on the line for all of us every hour of every day but I'm sure you had a good reason for switching me.

So here's the link to the 40 or so minutes of my show that were actually broadcast. Only the microphone knows what happened the other 80.

5/12/06 Show - Los Angeles

I managed to do another radio show. It was all music from Southern California dedicated to Northern California but then re-dedicated back to Southern California again. I actually had spent the entire week down in LA, preparing for the show, which is also known as heavy drinking. Now that I'm back though, everything tastes kind of funny. Does anyone know why that is?

Did I forget to tell you that there would be no 4/28 or 5/5 show?

Well if I didn't forget, I was sort of lying. There was a 4/28 show but it took place at Annie's Social Club during the Pirate Cat Radio 10th anniversary event. Since I didn't totally understand how to use the equipment over there until too late and since no one had any headphones and most importantly, since Annie's Social Club is a bar and hence, allowed me unlimited access to alcohol, the show was pretty much a bunch of non-experimental chaos.

Then on 5/5, I was so damn sick, I couldn't even leave the house. And I don't even have a house. That should give you an idea as to just how sick I was. So I didn't do the show. Unless "the show" is throwing up repeatedly, in which case, I did the show in a big way, baby.

But as long as Pirate Cat Radio doesn't celebrate their 11th anniversary 50 weeks early and as long as I don't get horrible sick again and as long as nothing else really happens at all, I will be back for the 5/13 show. And my brothers, it will rock. It will feature only bands from the city of Los Angeles. Or what we commonly refer to as Los Angeles but is really more like Southern California. I'm even going to drive down to LA this week to increase enjoyment somehow.
