4/20/07 Show - Peel Sessions

A show in which I not only said "Peel Sessions" at least a hundred times but also played Peel Sessions versions of all your favorite punk and post-punk tunes. In case you didn't know, John Peel was by far the most influential radio DJ on those subgenres. Like no one else is even close. A wooden chair without anybody sitting in it is like, number two. Well, maybe Rodney Bingenheimer was pretty huge. He might take the chair in the race for second but don't totally count the chair out. Chairs are much more skilled than people might realize. For some reason, I was watching one of those competitive eating challenges the other night on ESPN 2 and one of the announcers actually had the audacity to refer to the competitors as "amazing athletes." In my opinion, the real amazing athletes associated with those events are the toilets everybody uses when they're done. Those might be the most amazing athletes I've ever seen or heard of.

Anyway, below is the mp3 link for you to download and enjoy. Even after what I said above, I guarantee you that the music will be better than what you might download from the empty chair's blog:
