Fanatics! Notes From Chilly Toronto
RADIO BROADCAST #242
Fanatics! It is cold here in Toronto. I hit the street and the wind stings immediately. Our second track of the evening is perfect for my present location.
Two new additions to our ever growing arsenal tonight, Satellite Sky from Australia and Seasick Steve, who a lot of people are familiar with of course but makes his first appearance on our show tonight. I got this album from the good folks at Third Man. Like all the stuff on the label, it's well recorded and real deal. "Self Sufficient Man" is my favorite track on the record so far.
So, I've been living here in Toronto for the last several days and not even the heat of the mayor's crack pipe can keep the city warm. It's going to be one cold month. However, Engineer X, Will Bentley and I have conspired to make shows that will hopefully keep you well until when next we are all together on the radio.
I am up here working on a film. It's been going well so far. We get into the really heavy stuff in about a week. There will be a lot crashing and banging going on, but I think we will get through it.
I encourage you to check out the Julie Ruin album Run Fast. I wish I could play more of it but there are so many language issues, I am just not interested in playing word police all the time with bands. If they don't want to make clean versions of songs for radio use, then I will assume they're ok with limited play. It's frustrating. I am all about free speech, but I am bound by the rules of the FCC. I can't get the station in hot water and at the same time, I want to get these songs on the show. Anyway, the Julie Ruin album is full of really good songs and just because we can't play many of them on the show, you can dig the whole thing on your own and I hope you do.
Fanatics, the colder weather drives many of us indoors and into the deep recesses of our minds. Certainly I do not speak for all of us, but I think a few of you know what I am talking about. Tonight's show has a bit of that and I think we need some contrast for all the shows we put up over the summer. Hopefully, you will find tonight's mood shifts to your liking.
You know me Fanatic, I like all the shows we do. I think we have built a cool pyre tonight. Sundays are a drag to navigate but I think we are finding our way. You all make it worth it for sure.
Until next week, don't freeze and STAY FANATIC!!!
