Liveblogging! Commentary for “ITDE” 5/3/08

Strange… there was nobody here when I arrived at the station today. Just the “emergency programming” spinning, which (for the 15 minutes or so I was listening to it) was a half-alright mix of delta blues and gloomy Texan ballads. A little David Bowie was playing when I came into the darkened studio… always a weird feeling to find the controls set to “phantom”…

On the upside, pledge drive is over. WDBX met its goal, so it looks like we’ll be here another season. I’m celebrating by playing the final 25-minute cut from Public Eyesore’s release of Anla Courtis, Seichi Yamamoto, and Yoshimi’s “Live at Kanadian.” I’ve been listening to this thing all week, trying to write a review of it, and I’m having a hell of a time. I’ll just say it’s rather resistant to being reviewed– every time I think I have a handle on this one, it slips away from me.

I’m afraid this isn’t going to be much of a “liveblog” this week– Aaron Jones, a local musician involved with experimental project Maggotapplewonderland, has come to hang out here in the Hi-Life Room. And let’s not neglect Karthik, now the proud owner of yet more amperage to wield in his sets. Anyhow, getting acquainted has taken precedence over liveblogging… luckily, there’s this wonderful playlist to keep you amused.
