I am exhausted and can't focus and my finger is hovering over the "play" button waiting patiently for today's offerings.

I was watching "Doom Patrol" last night and "Nazi Punks F*(k Off" by DK was playing in one episode and I thought of you all. In a good way.

that is my favourite DK track of all time. OF ALL TIME.

Now it's the Cure: "Why Can't I Be You?" and I'm wondering if that rip is too loud for my wife who is working from home this week... track volume leveling is a real problem, hard to get the stereo output "just right" so that it's not too loud or too soft. So far the 'Tiels seem to be happy with the playlist. The nasti weather outside means that they will be spending the day indoors with us whether they like it or not.

/Bored? what, who me? Sorry y'all, I really am struggling here today.

reviewing the EOYC 2019 was refreshing, there were some good tracks last year, tracks i will shamefully admit i had completely forgotten about.

also, you lot will be pleased that due to this being essentially a rebroadcast from last year, you will not have to suffer through the jingle bed from the waitresses while i cover the fund drive.

Now my wife is laughing!! I think it annoyed her more than me.

Oh lordy, Chicago 19... That's what I get for "drag & drop" for the playlist and being in a hurry.

Trendy?
Not really. It's a bonkers showcase. Dark, angry, psychedelic, cute, and, at times, poppy.
WCIBY is crazy. It's almost a perfect pop song & played live it is euphoric.
Especially when they add the aristocats/ witchcraft medley towards the end & wig out with it. It's nuts.

i say trendy only in the commercial sense. it is by FAR the most popular album amongst casual fans, if only because of just like heaven.

fun fact: the attempted group hijack i discussed was started by a fellow station dj who wanted his favourite song to be #1. not only was it not #1, it didn't even make the top 20. he got all his fellow arsenal supporters to try to influence the voting, and only like six of them came through hahaha.
