Fanatic! I hope you’re enduring. We have a great show for you.
Below is some information about a show that Engineer X and I put together.
For many years, Engineer X and I have had this idea for a long form show. I mean really long form. Like hours. To do it terrestrially would be difficult because we would be crowding other shows out. But if it was online, hey.
Recently, I got an email from Tyler at KCRW and we got to writing back and forth about programming ideas. I pitched him on this online only show called The Cool Quarantine. It's as many songs as I want, language issues are not a factor and if anyone gets bored, they can just turn it off or mark the time they checked out and resume later.
The idea is that you're in your room, Engineer X and I come over. We play songs, I tell you stories and we do time together. Now that many of us are under some kind of confinement, we might as well get some good listening happening. Let's go long!
We'll put one up and see what you think. It's kind of like the show we do on Sundays but without time constraints or worrying about FCC compliance.
It's an extra slice of pizza. It will be completely indulgent, Fanatic of course, and hopefully, as Iggy Pop, the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion Of Rock And Roll says, "a real cool time."
You can access the show here.
The 16th is Ian MacKaye’s birthday!
I’ve been trying to stay inside. I have a ton of work to do, so I’ve just been staying on that. I haven’t lost track of which day of the week it is but I’ll have to check on how long I’ve been adhering to the stay at home guidelines. Time has become somewhat fluid. I’m trying to make the best of this time with a lot of writing and editing.
Please take good care of yourself and STAY FANATIC!!!
