Not So Shy John
Brad to the Bone House
With a phone-in from Brad Friedman (bradblog.org)
Broadcasters take note: some raw language used
A generally amiable discussion/panel discussing gun safety. Notes here by dj bennett. I now feel I was too easy here, because I did not want this to turn into a screaming argument, which I was expecting. But instead we went too far into the other side, treating massive deaths from firearms as though that were some kind of natural part of having firearms easily available. So I am hoping that we will do a follow-up based more on the notion that The NRA Is Not Good for America.
So let this be an introduction to what I hope will be several discussions. Let us know what you think! Write to email@example.com.
A shout out to Nick Richert.

192k, 2 hours, the story of Ian Curtis and Joy Division
It is music that is as overwhelming today as it ever was, and its power goes beyond the tragedy of one man unable to cope with the world. This is beauty fully realized and the fulfilment of what began as a punk DIY ideal but became so much more. Because of its incredible power and because they could go on, the story of Joy Division is ultimately a positive one.
Joy Division (1976-1980): Ian Curtis vocals, Bernard Sumner guitar, Peter Hook bass, Stephen Morris drums. Produced by Martin Hannett.
Set list, all music unless otherwise noted by Joy Division. A Means to an End / Digital / Exercise One (Peel Session 31 January 1979) / Auto-Suggestion / She's Lost Control / Transmission / Shadowplay / Day of the Lords / Atmosphere / Dead Souls / Love Will Tear Us Apart (Peel Session 26 November 1979) / She's Lost Control (12-inch version) / These Days / Isolation / Passover / The Eternal / Twenty-Four Hours / Digital (2 May 1980 Birmingham High Hall, Ian's last show) / Ceremony (14 May 1980 final Ian vox) / New Order-Ceremony (first single)
I had so many problems during the recording of this program I am amazed I got it done! The stream went down several times, but finally came back strong. As a result I was a bit stressed and I do overuse the word "extraordinary." But some of my listeners held on, so thanks, Dennis and Noel and everyone else. Special thanks to Scott Brandon Hutcherson. Also to killradio.org and radio4all.net. Feedback would be nice, comments sought.
I never realized the lengths I'd have to go, all the darkest corners of a sense I didn't know just for one moment I heard somebody call. Looked beyond the day in hand. There's nothing there at all.

192k, 2 hours 7 minutes, a romance of a radio play built with the sounds of the city
While this makes a fascinating radio narrative, I listen through it to hear the year 1973, because Marty's crew spent a week capturing wild ambient sound to mix into the soundtrack. You can't mask the reality coming through. Oh, we also get a thick dose of Little Italy atmosphere, what with the continual oldie pop songs and opera playing everywhere, and that beside the traffic, street noise, parties, bars, and dialogue. The people we get to know here are terrible. They're petty criminals and racists (they all seem to hate black people while doo wop serenades them), yet somehow we are drawn to them. We become witnesses. It's truly a parallel universe very like our own, whether we want to admit that or not. This show might even put you in a trance. (It happened to some live listeners.)
Set list and soundtracking (many tracks partial, incomplete list, film sound also includes field recordings of live musicians during the Feast of San Gennaro): Thunderstorm in Lawrence KS 2012 / The Carpenters-Rainy Day Traktor / Marjou's Icing Mix of Tori Amos-Sugar / Rolling Stones-Shattered / Walter Carlos-Summer (Sonic Seasonings) / The Ronettes-Be My Baby / Rolling Stones-Tell Me / Eric Clapton-I Looked Away / Rolling Stones-Jumpin' Jack Flash / Giuseppe Di Stefano-Addio Sogni di Gloria / The Star Spangled Banner / The Shirelles-I Met Him on a Sunday / Little Caesar and the Romans-Those Oldies But Goodies / The Marvelettes-Please Mr. Postman / Renato Carosone-Scapricciatiello / Jimmy Roselli-Malafemmina / The Aquatones-You / Betty Everett-The Shoop Shoop Song / The Chantels-I Love You So / The Paragons-Florence / The Chips-Rubber Biscuit / Johnny Ace-Pledging My Love / Ray Barretto-Ritmo Sabroso / The Charts-Desiree / The Miracles-Mickey's Monkey / Cream-Steppin' Out / Art Garfunkel-Always Look on the Bright Side of Life / Dicrylium-Superhero's Lullabye (soundcloud)

160k, two hours, a tribute to a great musician
Ray Manzarek was born in Chicago in 1939, played music from an early age, got an economics degree from DePaul University, and transferred to UCLA in 1962 for graduate work in cinematography. There he met Jim Morrison, and later, through a Maharishi lecture, he met Robbie Krieger and John Densmore. The Doors formed in the summer and fall of 1965. Tonight we will listen to Ray's own take on Doors history with some startling and cool outtakes and live music, as well as some of Ray's later production work, to tell the story of a musician and friend.
Set list: The spoken word material comes from Ray's CD The Doors Myth and Reality from 1997. All music performances by The Doors unless otherwise indicated. Introduction / Light My Fire / Film School with Jim / My Eyes Have Seen You (Aura Studio Demo) / Meeting Jim on the Beach / Moonlight Drive (10 March 1967 Matrix Club San Francisco) / Love Me Two Times (studio take 3) / Jim Morrison's Leather Pants and the Doors' uniforms / Roadhouse Blues (Madison Square Garden, NYC 17 January 1970) / (You Need Meat) Don't Go No Further (Love Her Madly b-side) / Riders on the Storm (alternate take with dubs January 1971) / The Paris Mystery / Tightrope Ride (single from Other Voices 1971) / Ray Manzarek-The Golden Scarab (Ray's first solo album 1973) / X-Nausea (Ray on keyboards) / X-Soul Kitchen (Doors cover, album produced by Ray 1980) / Weird Al Yankovic-Craigslist (2009, excerpt) / Why the Music Still Matters / Jim Morrison with the Doors-American Prayer / Bruce McCulloch-Doors Fan

Did you think we were all together? Did you think we were all the same? Did you think maybe I could help you remember your name, remember the game.
What's the name of the game?
