11/24/06 Show - Great Albums

It was kind of like a sampler platter. At Red Lobster, they call it the Sampler Platter. At Chili's, the birthplace of diarrhea, I believe it's the Triple Play. I'm not sure what it's called at TGI Fridays. The Dirty Sanchez maybe. I do know that if you're trying to decide between 1 of those 3 aforementioned restaurants and you feel like yelling, pick TGI Fridays. If you like to yell a lot while you eat, go with them.

But the reason for this metaphor is that I took great songs off of great albums, mixed them up with the sizzling triple meat fundido, and played them on my show. These are great albums where pretty much every song is good and distinct and has meaning. You don't just "download" a "track" from "iTunes" and send your "friend" a "text message" about it. You go down to a record store and buy the whole album. That is, if you can still find a record store. Which you almost certainly can't any more. So maybe just go to TGI Fridays instead. At least you can yell about it there.

Here's that Cajun Wasabi Link to the mp3 of the show:

This picture says more than my words (which sucked tonight) and tears (which also sucked, so I stole them from a gypsy) ever could.

And this link to download the mp3 of the show that featured only music from the amazing I.R.S. label says more than than those words and tears but still less than the picture:

11/10/06 Show - Disco vs. Post-Punk

This show was like a movie with one of those twist endings. It was all disco music but it didn't come from disco bands but I was dead the whole time. You weren't really listening to me on the radio. You were talking to yourself. I was also really a woman. And it was a dream. Oh, and that statue of liberty at the very end? Yep, Earth all along.

But like any great twist ending, it's always fun to watch, or in this case, listen to the show again to see if you can spot all of the twist hints. For instance, notice how no one reacts to me or answers any of my questions. It's because I'm not really there! Anyway, download this mp3 to hear it again. Oh shit, I just realized that you might not have heard it the first time and I gave away all of the twists! So sorry. But at least this show does also contain some very good songs for ass-shaking.

11/3/06 Show - Reggae/Dub vs. Punk/Post-Punk

The Rumble in the Jungle. Long before Vanilla Ice, long before Eminem, punks were the 1st generation of whities that attempted to co-opt what was considered an extremely black form of music. Sure, they may not have been as good and talented as Vanilla Ice but I think but I think the integration of reggae and dub into punk and post-punk music left us with some great songs. It also gave the genre a moist towellette of freshness.

You should download the mp3 below but if you want my advice, you should try downloading it on weed. It might make the music sound better too but it's really the downloading part that will blow your mind:
