“Every Song Played on PUNKTRONIC DISCO DIRGE Pirate Radio Show So Far!!!” by Richard F. Yates

in #musiclast month (edited)

I hit nine episodes with the last show, meaning next is the exciting EPISODE TEN! (Double digits!) Ten will be a Halloween themed show, full of novelty songs and weird stuff that most people will find fun for a few seconds and then incredibly annoying by about minute ten! Ha! Honestly, I listen to Halloween music all year, but that’s just me… (To quote Ministry, “Everyday is Halloween…”)

That’s a LOT of tunes… About nine hours’ worth---give or take me jabbering about when stuff came out and where I found it. Whether or not you’re interested in my personal journey of musical discovery, I think the tunes speak for themselves. And, as I mentioned above or in a previous post or in a dream I might have had, I really ENJOY making these shows, listening to tunes, curating cuts to play and share, trying to make certain that some of the more obscure bands and performers don’t slide away into nothingness. Keep the music ALIVE!!!! (I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you buy the stuff you enjoy! The people who made it will be grateful, and you’ll know that you’re supporting something cool---not just a stupid streaming service owned by some giant company! Bandcamp! That's the way to go! Or directly from the performer, if at all possible...)

Okay… Time to go make up something else to do! (Gotta stay busy...or the GHOSTS will find me!!!) If you have any questions about these tunes, let me know. I love talking music! If you want to LISTEN to any of these episodes, here’s a link to my 3speak page. They aren’t all on there yet (I’m moving them from a less reliable site), but they WILL BE, eventually!)

Later, skaters!!!
