In today’s news, DaveX was disappointed to receive two fairly clueless submissions in the morning’s post. Sources are sketchy, but police have held Iranian flamenco artist Mehran, and hipster space/children’s music band Astro Al for further questioning. Both are at the center of allegations stemming from a rash of recent spam promotional actions that resulted in the death of at least one DJ’s willingness to listen to anything mailed his way. Witnesses say that DaveX handled the incidents with typical panache, shelving one vanity pressing deep in the station archives, while donating the other to a local children’s music host.
After making my break from the third person narrative in which I was previously imprisoned, I took the opportunity to begin cleanup of WDBX’s final frontier– the Production Studio. This space has been the whipping boy and dumping ground for a huge variety of objects; I found everything from long-defunct Chinese takeout menus to ketchup packets, ages-old pledge forms promising a member’s newsletter (!) to shattered Mormon Tabernacle LPs. I’ve heard that we might be getting an overhaul of the Production Studio setup soon, so this de-junking will at least allow the technical folks to access the room without fear of acquiring tetanus.
Sadly, I discovered a copy of “Violet Ray Gas and the Playback Singers” from Zeromoon and the Sentient Recognition Archive labels that never reached my hands. Unfortunately, the disc is missing. This marks the third time in the past month that I’ve found one of my promotional mails stuck somewhere around the station– if you mail me something, be sure to put “c/o DaveX” in GIANT letters on it. Don’t worry, though. I’m going to hit Soulseek in a moment and see if I can’t dig up a copy to replace this one with. Maybe next week, you’ll get to hear it! Until then, take care.
