"Nostalgia is a seductive liar" -George Wildman Ball
Last show for 2 weeks. This is the unofficial PLB HS Reunion show featuring long blocks of choice cuts from my HS days. Of course, it's not all nostalgia on todays PLB. Good new stuff by Das Racist, Lil Wayne, Frankie Rose and the Outs plus a whole host of other stuff. Check it.

The news show of science and reason!
What we have here is this week's Weekly News in Review from harpers.org (and the killradio news team)
also includes What's the Harm? a guide for critical thinking -- this time discussing harm by Scientology! Yep, I said it. Scientology may have a lot of attorneys and may intimidate its enemies, but the fact is, it's a bogus religion and it is the ENEMY of reason and health. Hear how people have DIED by following the advice of Scientologists. Hey, you want to believe their crap, go right ahead, but if you listen to this you've been warned.
Meanwhile, the rest of the world is as screwed up as usual. Plus it got up to 113 degrees in Los Angeles on Monday. Jesus Christ!
If you do listen to this news, will you drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org? I doubt I'll ever hear from anyone, certainly haven't heard from anyone yet, but who knows when I could be surprised?
No commercials. Plenty to think about. Be prepared to think.
Recorded Friday 24 September 2010 at 10:00pm PST.
Tooks honored her boss, Ingrid who died on Monday. Colin Ambulance called an acupuntralist about moving to Hawaii with genital bulus impetigal and "crying all the time"; Shaddy called about his pet coyote; Amy consulted a woman about her overdue 1500 dollar balance for wall urinals currently being delivered. Chivo got a Ben and Jerry's to let him talk to customers. Vibeke called a Macdonalds as a baby with an alcoholic mom.

Radio therapy. Understand that the songs you see played are interspersed with various commentary; today begins with commentary on this week's news, that one out of every seven Americans is "under the poverty level" of income. I see a certain psychological state that accompanies the state of a lower (or nonexistent) income. More on that, but I played The Red Devils, Automatic, ShyJohn, Nothin' In The World, and a reading, "Wrong Love", People Are Strange snippet, Jay Howard's, Red Rooster snippet, Jay Howard and ShyJohn on harp,Skate or Die, Teenage Bottlerocket, Walk Like an Egyption, by the Bangles, Sacred Reich, Sweetleaf, also by The String Quartet.
Next set, Goin' to the Church, Red Devils, then an interesting study, of Devil Woman, written and done first by Lester Butler, and then by Bruce Willis, off of YouTube. Then, a kind of walk in time and the real therapy session starts. Spirit in the Sky, Norman Greenbaum. War Pigs, Ozzy, Honky Tonk Women, Pat Benetar and company, Free Money, Patti Smith, and Work Song, Paul Butterfield. Paul Young, Walkin by Myself, Pearl Jam, Life Wasted, Peggy Lee, Fever, and The Best is Yet to Come.
Pickin on Santana does Black Magic Woman, bluegrass style. I slip in A Pirate's Life For Me, by The Pirates of the Caribbean, and then I played a single given to me by the beautiful Dee Dee Corona, Come On! I like that patriotic stuff, if it's done right, with heart. As Dee Dee was compared to Wendy O Williams, by Zed here in the studio, I put on Stand By Your Man, done metal by Wendy and Lenny of Motorhead, and The Plasmatics doing I Love Sex. Followed that with Poison doing Once Bitten, Twice Shy.
Then, in honor of Oktoberfest, I found a very quiet version of Ray Davies doing Oh! Demon Alcohol, and an Ozzy song of the same name, that's a different song. Had to do Sue Jack Daniels, Reverend Horton Heat, and Liquor, Beer and Wine. Then, I had a lapse, and started this Polkacide song, The Weiner Dog Polka....how embarrassing! So, anyway, Then, Flogging Molly does Every Dog Has It's Day, then Jet'Eme, by some French people.
A Frank Zappa set, Honey, Don't You Want a Man Like Me?, Wowie Zowie, More Trouble Comin' Every Day, and then, even More Trouble Comin' Every Day, the original, and the Live at the Roxy in '74, How Could I Be Such a Fool? Frank asks a lot of Questions. Then, a visit to the Hank Williamses, We Don't Use The "F" Word in Country, Jr., and then two from III, Go Fuck You (if you don't like our Hillbilly sound), and Pop Country Really Sucks, and, so you don't think I'm a Negative Nelly, I played Miley Sirus doing Zip A Dee Doo Dah, and Jerry Murad's Harmonicats, Music To Watch Girls By. Whiew!
