wow i'm behind

Hey everybody!

Looks like I've (quite unexpectedly) got an audience waiting for the next show with bated breath.

The long and short of it is that I've had the show almost ready since last week, but I haven't had the time to put it all together. Rather than give you a rushed and half-assed show, I'm trying to wait until I have the time to do it right.

Yes, today is indeed my birthday. I'll have to ask you to indulge me in not expecting me to do the 3-4 hours of work it takes to put the show together on my birthday.

I bought a whole helluva lot of records today. Great stuff. Go here for details.

The show should be taken care of soon enough. Quality is better than quantity. Or something.

gettin there

As I'm sure you've figured out by now, no update yet. The show isn't done. I'm working on being a little more reliable as far as "regular weekly updates" goes. Podcast #7 should be available for listening & download by Tuesday morning. In the meantime, check out Moistworks. It's one of the best MP3 blogs out there, with insightful and meaningful writing about the music it shares. Big ups. See you tomorrow morning.

settlin in: podcast #5

MP3 File

This week's show took a bit out of me, but I'm getting more comfortable with the various segments of the show. At first I worried about finding great new music for Kick Start every week, but there's no shortage of fantastic stuff out there. Then I worried about finding great new vinyl for you every week, but given the explosion of full-album vinyl-only blogs in the last two months, I doubt that will be an issue.

Every week I think I'm going to have trouble finding a great new leak to bring you, but I always come across something. Labels are never hesitant to give thirsty fans a preview of upcoming work. And the Home Stretch is really coming into its own as a part of the show where I can play whatever I want to play and still make it work within the context of the show. So that's all playing out well. Comments, friends! I thrive on them!

Dig the show this week, I'll catch you again Monday, whence I might have a leaked Wilco track for you.
