Hooray. An hour of some of the most depressing songs of all time. This show owes a huge debt to This Will End in Tears, by Adam Brent Houghtaling. Thanks, Adam! For the sorrow and misery. We were so eager to share with the rest of the world. Sniff. Listen and weep.


Adam, don’t worry, this isn’t completely derivative—we found at least one sad bastard you may have overlooked.

Join us as we return to the airwaves Saturday the 19th at 3 p.m. CST, streaming online, with a brand new show: Songs about Autumn. Music that turns colors and falls to the ground, music that is partially overcast, music that yields empty fields and provides a flicker of warmth in the encroaching coldness.

Rock Geek F.M. is still for sale to the highest bidder—the station with the most expensive microphones—which for now is good old WEFT 90.1 FM.

Join us in four weeks for the episode entitled The Great Miserabalists—featuring Cristy’s list of Top 3 Sad Bastards in rock.


How cute is that? A show of songs about cats and dogs. And cats.
