PROGRAMMING NOTE:

First of all, if you're new here, WELCOME! We hope you stick around, and we hope you post.

There are several ways to catch the show:

You can catch it straight from the KUCI 88.9FM website:

https://kuci.org/wp/listen/

You can listen via mobile or desktop on TuneIn:

https://tunein.com/radio/KUCI-889-FM-s35860/

You can listen via mobile or desktop on Streema:

https://streema.com/radios/KUCI_88.9FM

(note: the app for Streema is "Simple Radio")

You can listen via mobile or desktop on Radio Garden:

http://radio.garden/listen/kuci/A58GSAOF

Lastly, we stream live on iTunes. Just open iTunes and look for live radio streaming, and search for us, KUCI 88.9FM.

A couple notes:

We unfortunately cannot podcast or post show recordings, so if you miss the broadcast, you miss it - it's an FCC thing (seriously).

But we post a text playlist after the show at the bottom of the thread, and we also post a YouTube playlist after the show here:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWLmRhgwtylQbd_QUxmgFeA/playlists

And if you hear a song that you just can't wait until the end of the show (or the end of the block) to find out what it was, the playlist is also live-Tweeted here:

https://twitter.com/socalnewwaver (no account or sign in needed to view)

Lastly, and most importantly, this is a non-Covid, non-politics, non-bad news thread. We're here for the music, we hope you are too!

Picked up the new Say Sue Me album this weekend & have to say, after my first skim through, in which I thought it was a bit meh, I gave it a proper outing on Saturday (at volume) and it's really farking good.

My favorite Big Country trivia is that the after their big hit, one of the band members went BACK into the military (want to say it was RN subs).  I come from a family of submariners (Scottish too).  I don't think that's a sensible decision, but respect the hell out of it.  Takes commitment to walk away from the glitz (and ladies) of the rock and roll lifestyle and go back to the silent service.

Big Country is also fun like the Proclaimers in that you can hear their accent in the singing, where people like Shirley from Garbage tends to drop it off a bit.

Claudia handover time.
Will it go smoothly or will it get all snarled up in VLC?

Saturday's weather was supposed to be overcast and in the mid-70s. When I got back to my car after hiking 9 sunny, hot, and humid miles, I was audibly growling.

I saw this dude Howlin' Wilf in a downstairs pub in London in like 1990
He walked up to the Mike, all decked out in silver etc, and said hi in an accent that was farking impenetrable - "awriigh, ere weeahhh gain furranothuh beeyoutihfoe night i'init?"
And then proceeded to sing and play rockabilly with perfect enunciation in a US southern drawl - like he was in from Tennessee

Like a beauty school dropout type thing
Just an observation

Just dawned on me that I have no clue whatever happened to all my music cassettes from youth, which included the Squeeze 45 Singles compilation with the 3D style (like blue/red) writing and doodle.  Haven't seen my records on cassette in decades.
