Cheers you beautiful lot. At some point during the first hour we'll be playing the world premiere of the new track from Warahenege. Those who have listened to the show for a bit will know the lad is fantastic, and this new track is no exception. I'm so proud to be able to be giving it its debut.

Sparks was played every half hour in the early 80s.
Japan, not so much... sort of learned of them b/c Bauhaus was broken up and bought the Dali's Car record and somehow learned that it was not just Peter Murphy, but also "the guy from Japan."

Wasn't critiquing - your "obscure" tracks are my new music and favorite bands.
Was just crowbarring in a herd of the nerd comment, lest anyone question my credentials.

I once went out with a girl whose mission was to collect at least one album from a band from every country in the world.
I wonder how that's going?

Here's hoping you have a better reaction to it than me. All better today though, except for the sore arm, but only if I say, try to lift it above my head.

And thanks to the anonymous Farker for the month of TF!

Now I'm off to see if I can get Alexa to play nice so I can listen while I'm doing a bit of cooking prep for tomorrow...

I will be up to my elbows in meal preparation and trying to be as quiet as possible, as the person whose house we are using this year works third shift and will be sleeping. But I'll be missing this show, and this crew, and wishing you were all seated at the table with my friends and I, where the conversation always, always turns to music.
