Life Sentence -- March 5, 2023

A week ago, I sat in for my first entire live radio show in over a year on WXCI's Life Sentence - a Sunday afternoon show with rotating hosts from WXCI's alumni. I really needed it and had a lot of fun playing a set of weird classic Late Night Noise jams (during the day). It's possible I might be back to do this a few more times throughout the Spring!

This was also the first Sunday afternoon shift since WXCI's 50th anniversary on 2/28/23, and so music from 1973 was featured throughout the show's 2nd hour. I didn't do a great job of announcing, which is what happens (to me anyway) after you haven't talked live on the air in over a year.

Teenage Fanclub "Everything Flows"
Wire "I Am The Fly"
Can "Graublau"
Jason Loewenstein "Codes"
The Laughing Dogs "Low Life"
Joe Tossini and Friends "Wild Dream"
Tropical Fuck Storm "1983 (A Merman I Should Turn To Be)" (NEW)

**Some of my favs from the year 1973!**
Todd Rundgren "International Feel"
The Stooges "Search and Destroy"
Faust "J'ai Mal Aux Dents"
Serge Gainsbourg "Je Suis Venu Te Dire Que Je M'en Vais"
Elton John "I've Seen That Movie Too"
T.Rex "20th Century Boy"
Manu Dibango "Soul Makossa"
Hawkwind "Orgone Accumulator"
Bobby Womack "Across 110th Street"

The Drin "Eyes Only for Space" (NEW)
The Police "Shadows in the Rain"
Endless Boogie "The Conversation"
Suicide "Dream Baby Dream"
Bobb Trimble "Selling Me Short While Stringing Me Along"
Stereolab & Nurse With Wound "Trippin With The Birds"
King Crimson "Starless"

John Dwyer "The War Clock"
Therome "Radionuclides"
Dali Muru & The Polyphonic Swarm "The Danube Dwellers"
True Sons of Thunder "Drugs in Space"
Rescue One "Chateau 19"
Flex TMG "Sideways" (NEW)
The Swirlies "Park The Car By The Side of the Road"

2022 Mixtape Streams + Late Night Noise Hiatus

Lots of news!!

Good news = Jumping in the Night w/ DJ Queeregeddon is now on WXCI Monday nights at 10PM! We're very psyched the timeslot went to such a great show!

Good news = In case you missed it or want to check it out again, both parts of the 2022 Mixtape show are now streaming on Mixcloud! Much like the last 4 or 5 of these, it was a giant pain to put together but sounded really good afterwards.

  • In Part 1 at 1:37:00, you can hear the "2022 TV Talk" podcast segment with myself, Sad13, and Jobber Kate.

  • Also in Part 1 at 3:09:00, you can check out the "2022 Movies We Did Not Like" podcast with myself, Nick Reinhart, and Jobber Kate.

  • And then in Part 2 at 0:35:00, you may hear the "Top 5 Movies of 2022" podcast thing, again with myself, Nick Reinhart, and Jobber Kate.

  • Not sure if this is bad news or good news = As mentioned throughout the 2022 Mixtape show, Late Night Noise has entered indefinite hiatus for the 2nd and probably final time. The first time was from Fall 2014 until Spring 2017, but this one feels more permanent than the other one. There's no planned send-off show, since the entire June 2021 to Sept 2022 run of shows felt like one giant prolonged finale. We didn't get to play "Farewell" by Boris, but it's posted below.

    I moved to Brooklyn in March 2020 with no planned post-lockdown return. But then I unexpectedly found work in Danbury 5 minutes away from WXCI, conveniently aligning with the show's timeslot, and this signaled an opportunity to capitalize. Then I found work again, closer to where I live, which is too far away to keep up with Late Night Noise.

    But I think we had a pretty good run. It was an honor filling WXCI's Monday night airspace with the weirdest stuff we could find. Thanks so much to anyone who ever listened for an hour or longer, and thanks to past and present WXCI PD's for letting it happen.
