Sitting in on the Beat Blender, William pours a gourdful of Argentine music, Argentine tango, and bastard tango from North America and Western Europe.

Download and enjoy.


The playlist is here.


Songs about legal matters, lawyers, police, jail, punishment, release, and songs with actual courtroom scenes. A judicious mix, but listen and judge for yourself.


Cristy! I knew that was you calling as soon as I heard the gloomy dissonance of Scott Walker!

Here are some original plagiarized* ringtones, created by William for his personal use. You either get it or you don’t. Download! Enjoy!

* “Sampled.” Fair use?


The Count.

The Count.

We keep keeping on with this theme—songs named after numbers in numeric order—which has the two problems of being endless and progressively more difficult. Like life, only endless. Here we climb from 28-52.

Previous shows in this series:

On a stormy 11/22 Honcho emerged from the mists to collaborate on a long-awaited Scott Walker show.

We covered Walker’s career in chronologic order, touching on every solo album along the way.

Honcho took part 1, William took it from there.

Get serious. Listen, and follow us into the darkness.

Tonight: Partly cloudy. Lows in the upper 40s. Light west winds. Songs about the rain.

From 8-10 CST on Rock Geek F.M. with Cristy and William: the music of Paul Kotheimer, Scott Walker, the Troggs, Marmalade, Cracker, Tones on Tail, and a couple dozen others. Songs about rain drizzling online at, evaporated to the cloud right here.

Possibly the first rock band photo shoot in the rain. Trendsetter band the Band.

Cristy’s ultra-cute cybergreen VW new beetle suffered another super-cute battery failure while we were filling the tank on the way to the station.

As a result we arrived out of sorts and fell back on a strategy we had not resorted to before: playing songs we really, really like.

Isn’t that what freestyle rock radio by passionate humans should be about?


If that were so, we’d play the same stuff every month.

But it took the edge off a stressful night. Listen, enjoy almost as much as we did, dancing in the studio.

Check engine light is on, guys.

Check engine light is on, guys.

An early, haunted, spirited, sleep-deprived, headless romp through horror movie soundtracks, songs about death, unexplained phenomena, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This is a fun download.

1. I was born in a cross-fire hurricane.

2. If I were a swan, I’d be gone.

3. I wish I were a Kellogg’s cornflake. I’d rather be a hammer than a nail.

4. I need a dumptruck to unload my head.

5. Superman or Green Lantern ain’t got nothing on me.

6. I’m gonna fly my freak flag high.

7. I’m a snow-covered mountain in an empty room.

8. I should pour through the keyhole or evaporate completely.

9. I have tried marijuana. I get nervous every time: There will come a knocking at the door.

10. I am a man who will fight for your honor.

11. I’d like to be under the sea.

12. When I was an astronaut, an asteroid ht the earth and prematurely ended my career.

13. My tissue is rotting where the rats chew my bones. My eye socket’s empty. I’m a space invader, I’ll be a rock-and-rolling bitch for you. This film is a saddening bore, because I wrote it ten times or more. I’d like to be a gallery and put you all inside my show.

14. I live above a grocer’s store owned by an Austrian. He often calls me down for tea. He jokes about his broken English, tries to be a friend to me. But for all my years of reading conversation, I stand without a word to say.

15. My death waits there among the leaves.

16. I’ve got an electric guitar and half a bottle of warm beer. I’ve got some funny ideas about what sounds good.

17. I may be hungry but I sure ain’t weird.

18. Eight miles out of Memphis and I got no spare.

19. I’ve got a crystal ball, a divining rod, a magnifying glass and a pack of dogs.

20. The north side of my town faced east, and the east was facing south.

21. Memories of it still keep calling and calling, but forget it all, I know I will.

22. My wheels never touched the road.

23. It’s awfully considerate of you to think of me here, and I’m much obliged to you for making it clear that I’m not here. I’ve been looking all over the place for a place for me, but it ain’t anywhere. It just ain’t anywhere.

24. I’m a Citizens for Boysenberry Jam fan.

25. If I were a better man, I’d understand the spaces between friends.
