April 30: Doomsday Radio

I subbed for Matt E to produce his Doomsday Radio with a The Liz twist. It begins with lots o jazz to honor Matt, jazz fulla drums and whimsy to please my own aural palate.

Here you can hear a new one from Esperanza Spalding, who will appear at the A2 Summer Festival.

“Mad without him, sad without him, how can I be glad without him blues” is another song you can hear here.

And TUURD emerges, odoriferous, with special guests, during Events Information. Was there a tuurd in the punchbowl on Satuurday? Learn all about it here!

John Sinclair ends the show by passing around a joint.

Bruce Haack teaches children about spiders through the universal medium of music.

Aren’t Hungarian stand-up comics hi-larious? Speaking of which, who takes the stage name “Dick Hyman”? He’s kidding, right? Very interestingly, Dick Hyman has gone crazy with Moog synthesizers in the past, FYI.

When I mention a band from Georgia, I do not refer to the united state, but rather the Eastern European country. The band was classified by the Georgian government as a “vocal and instrumental ensemble”, presumably to aid in some bureaucratic process.

The return of the cockatiel training album! Ensure that you position your bird close to the speakers during this show. My aim is to have your pet whistling tunes at any speed you desire (so long as your speed of choice corresponds to 33 1/3, 45, or 78 revolutions per minute).

Do you think that a cockatiel would mimic the subtle sounds of a spinning record, replete with pops and even scratches? ugh, what if you left for work with your cockatiel training album on repeat, and it turned out that there was a scratch in the LP or CD…you’d be the dismal owner of the most annoying cockatiel in the world. Not only would the bird repeat the same whistled tune over and over, but it would repeat the same segment of the same whistled tune over and over and over…

Also contained herein is the secret to perfect dreadlocks. One of the most important functions of radio = a venue for hairdo advice.

Shh!  No talking at all during the show!  Me, I mean.  DJ The Liz does not sully the music with her admittedly mellifluous vocalizations.  Which makes this the perfect opportunity to begin adding music playlists to this here blog.
