Cheated out of another show (again!)

The Doctor wasn't on the air today, as he is recovering from a general-purpose virus of indeterminate origin. When The Doctor went to see the doctor, he was told "Just wait a few days, you'll feel better".

I'll be back on the air on Wednesday, January 7, 2009. Cross my heart and hope to die!

In the meantime, have a happy new one!

There will be no program at 7AM today (12-24-08)

My asthma, which is merely a nuisance, usually,
has been kicking my ass all over the yard

I hate like hell to miss doing yet another show,
especially on Christmas Eve,
but I just don't feel up to it right now.

My sincerest apologies to my fans.
This sucks tremendously.

You can still hear my previous programs at
my podcast page:

Hopefully, my doctor and I can get this thing under
control, and I'll be back on the air where
and when I belong.

Watch this blog for further details.

Playlist for December 17th, 2008

Frank Zappa
1 May 1974, Broome County Arena, Binghamton, NY

Taper's notes:

Cosmik Debris, Pygmy Twylyte, Idiot Bastard Son, Cheepnis (q: Octandre), Penguin In Bondage,
RDNZL, Montana, Dupree's Paradise (incl Lohengrin, Can't Afford No Shoes riff), It Can't
Happen Here, Hungry Freaks Daddy, You're Probably Wondering Why I'm Here, How Could I
Be Such A Fool?, I Ain't Got No Heart, I'm Not Satisfied, Wowie Zowie, Let's Make The Water
Turn Black, Harry You're A Beast, Orange County Lumber Truck, Oh No, Son Of Orange
County, More Trouble Every Day, Camarillo Brillo

One of the best shows by The Grape, both in terms of sound and content. I got the master clone
CDs "second hand", but I'm still quite sure this one is raw. It had some problems, though, namely
some digi_clicks near the beginning of the Freak Out medley. I only ran click removal on the
affected sections, so I hope I managed to find them all.

I only found the first tape flip, between RDNZL and Montana. There should be a tape change
somewhere in the Freak Out medley _ someone will probably point it out for me soon. We
wouldn't have a fill for it anyway, since no one showed up with a different source.

Thanks to The Grape for this and all his other great recordings.

No radio show this Wednesday (10-DEC-08)

Real life has been intervening in a very big way for me lately.
It is with a heavy heart therefore, that I announce that I won't be on

the air this Wednesday.

I should be on the air next Wednesday, the 16th,
at 7AM.

Here however, is a link to my podcast of last week's program.

Winter Break Radio with its full 3-hour time slots is
just around the corner!

My best to my apprentices, Birdman and Emily!
