Usedta was before the fluffy-chat thing I do now that I had a music show back when I first got involved at WOOL. It was called A Pretty Big Place With Lots Of Room, and my cohost was a sexy robot because I was afraid of the microphone. The very first one was six years ago next month… though it seems like much, much longer ago than that.
Tonight, we’re gonna revisit that first show for no good reason other than that I had a tooth extracted a couple days ago and I’m not feeling fit for polite company.
Here’s what’s on the menu: Shaky Hands, Nortec Collective, Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars, Polyrock, Times New Viking, Nils Frahm, Laura Veirs, Micachu and The Shapes, William Burroughs, Beirut, Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet, Ramesh B Weeratunga, Fireman, Coolhand Band, Cows, Futureheads, De Ndirande Pitch Crooners, Wahala Project, Major Lazer, Chatmonchy, Doc Watson, James Brown, Mae Shi, The Slew, Ali Farka Toure, The Others, Welder, Deolinda, Twink, King Missile, and a crazed Christina Aguilara / Velvet Underground / Communards mashup.
WOOL-FM at 91.5 locally and streaming from www.wool.fm everywhere else at 7:00 Eastern on Wednesday nights.
