Playlist for 8/27/10: You're Late, Mister Zero Hour

Good John began the show for me this week, and in an effort to call attention to my tardiness began with a "late" theme. Another one to add to the payback pile. New music from Davila 666, the Anabolics (thanks, Anna!) and Hasil Adkins.

Playlist for 8/13/10: Monkey Lessons Needed

Hoped to promote widespread wiggling with the opening theme this week. Sorry to disappoint anyone aching to do the Slop, the Hully Gully, the Watusi, the Hunch, or the Dirty Hickup (might have made that last one up). Next time. For the fourth week running, I started the show with a song from the storied vaults of Specialty Records, which will get the I Love My Label treatment next week. Miriam from Norton Records e-mailed me the awesome You Tube Badger A Go-Go link featuring an enthusiastic Oshkette doing the wild dairy shuffle circa 1966. The A-Bones provide the soundtrack.

Playlist for 7/30/10: Seeing Orange

The road construction around the Milwaukee area this summer has me a little nutty, so I tried to work out my issues by making it the opening theme of the show. Worked well until I got in the car again.

Last night, I subbed for Rich Mars on the City Rock Showgram, which you can check out here. Also, tune in 3-6 Saturday afternoon during the Why My Head Hurts show. I'll be stopping by around 4 or so to interview the most excellent Million Sellers, who are appearing Saturday night at Frank's Power Plant. Be there or prepare for another regretful Sunday morning.
