A note without a song; a show without a theme

Served up fresh and well-scrubbed 1-4 p.m. Mountain time today on KAFM; tune in for fun!

Not much fun on today’s show, alas. At least, not looking at the playlist I’ve got so far; we’re going for more of the wistful & moody. Except for that Pipettes song. Hm. How the heck am I going to work that in?

So far: Arcade Fire, Aphex Twin, the three bands Jim and I saw in San Francisco on Dec. 30th (Cat Power, Gnarls Barkley, Flaming Lips… yeah!), Arthur Russell, Heartless Bastards, Emmylou Harris… and of course, whatever you request and I can dig out of the vault. 970-241-8801, I’ll put you on the air if I can figure out the phone/board interface (and if you promise not to say naughty words).

Also: from "Manners and Conduct In School and Out," a slim volume by the Deans of Girls in Chicago High Schools (copyright 1921), which my mom tucked into my Christmas stocking:

To force your presence upon those who seem not to want you, tends to crystallize their feelings of antagonism. On the other hand, nothing more quickly disarms this feeling of antagonism than evidence of delicacy on your part.

See you on the airwaves…

    What a cool gift! Your mom rocks! (my mom rocks too, but that’s not the point).
    And, spill – how was the concert?

    How many classroom teachers can say that they let their 9-10 year-old students listen in??? Great show, and please tell Fisher that “Airbag” suits him.
