2-4s and Mickeys

True fact: on the way to the radio station I remembered I was out of rum. So I went into the Beer Depot and asked for a pint. It’s taken a long time to get out of the habit of asking for a mickey. That may be the first time I remembered without stumbling over it.

So yeah, doing that show was incredibly indulgent. I was genuinely confused about being in my right mind, and doing radio. Normally I get into the studio after a few hours sleep and I start at six. Today I started clear headed and it felt distinctly strange, like I should go out into the parking lot and smoke a bunch of cigarettes and bang my head against a rock for a while to get into the right headspace. But it was fun. As a side benefit, I may, for the first time, be sick of talking about Canada.

Here’s the playlist.

And here’s the audio:

Part two (download):

Two hours really wasn’t enough. I’ve got a bunch of stuff to play tomorrow, but I’ll be mixing it up with some more general open format.

errata: Winnipeg is not the “City of Champions”. That dubious claim belongs to Edmonton. Wrong city, wrong damn province even.

Wow, I finally got thru the thursday, firday and monday morning shows from last week and i have to say, well done. I think the first hour of your thursday show was bloody brilliant. Maybe you should think about doing all canadian music one monday a month or something. The first hour of Friday was really great too, my favoirte set was the plea from a cat named virtue-NYC cops–Mercedes Benz segment…and no, you can’t play that song enough…
