I’ve started a bit early this week, kicking the broadcast off at 3 a.m., following the brand-new “Mass Resistance” show. I had a bit more time to ask them about their music this week– so I’ve now added the phrase “electronic body music” to my inner dictionary. I guess it falls somewhere between industrial and synth pop, which seems to make sense. At any rate, they enjoy what they’re playing, and I’m pretty sure there’s no other show at WDBX like it. If this sounds like your thing, tune in a bit early and check it out next week. ‘Mass Resistance” starts at midnight, and goes until 3.
Of course, you’ve noticed by now that I’ve been squatting a bit of Nick’s old “Sweet Action Radio” spot since his untimely demise at the hands of rogue samurai. For the past few months, I’ve been strolling in the door at 3:30-ish, giving myself a nice round 3-hour broadcast, which I enjoy. With “Mass Resistance” bringing WDBX within 1 hour of a full broadcast day, I’ve been asked to make the 3 a.m. opening the norm. For now, however, I’ve asked that it remain only semi-official– in other words, you might catch me coming in this early, or I might just start at 4 a.m. like usual. For now, I can guarantee that special guests, live phone-ins, or in-studio sets will only occur during the official 4-6:30 hours.
I can’t quite read the entirety of the track titles on Halaka’s “Unabridged Discord” album– due to some paper folding in the package, they’re partially obscured. I’m guessing at the last few letters of each, so hang on!
Update: My recorder failed AGAIN. Nothing to share with you this week. Don’t count on the digital shit, kids– it will let you down!
