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!

just back from a very short "vacation" which basically looked like this:

Fark user imageView Full Size


the dishwasher crapped out and since the delivery and install was $150 and would take "only 30 minutes" i was voluntold to do the install.

difficulty: i'd never installed a dishwasher

fark: now i've installed exactly one, which naturally makes me an expert

spoiler alert: installing a dishwasher should only take you 30 minutes. plus seven hours.

The sense of accomplishment made it all worth it, right? Right...?

I once attempted to install a new bathroom faucet. The instructional video made it look so easy...

I hate youtube instructional videos - they make everything look ridiculously easy. "Fixing drywall? Creating Photoshop 3D objects? Open-heart surgery? Mr. Youtube can show you how to do it all in just 30 minutes! Just subscribe NOW!"

I had a productive day. Well weekend aswell really.
Ripped up all the carpets & stripped wallpaper from three rooms in the new place.
Today, I ripped out all the horrid wood panelling & 3 massive built in cupboards.
I now have a fark ton of firewood..
& several wounds from nails, stairs, bits of house falling on my head & bashing me in the face.
But I do love my new club hammer & crow bar.

Uhmhm. Remember when you LAST went through all the cables, carefully wound 'em up and secured them... and somehow, they all unwound and got into an orgy when you weren't looking? I HATE those guys.

Finally solved that by biting the bullet and buying a cubic crapload of gallon ziplock bags. Wrapped them rascals, haven't had a problem since. Also, got myself a label maker and tagged the amp and voltage on the power blocks. I'm getting to old to decode that crap by eye anymore.

I have a Damned question for the group:
The song "Smash It Up" that I'm most familar with is really just Part 2 of the song. I have a recording of Part 2 (I think from Sessions of the Damned but I could be wrong about that) that does not have Part 1, but DOES have about 90 seconds of guitar work at the end.
I have another recording that has Part 1 and Part 2, but at the end of Part 2 there is some rhythmic mumbling instead of the guitar work.
So after all that, my question is: Is there a version with Parts 1 AND 2, but with the guitar outro?
Thank you all in advance!
