I am acting as research gofer while Cristy hostesses Women Making Waves – the women of rock and country.



Wake up to Songs About Sleep in one hour! As long as you’re awake and online, tune into and hear songs about sleep, on Rock Geek F.M. with Cristy and William, coming on at 8 a.m. Chicago time, right after Alternative Radio. Whoops – look at the time. We’d better get to the station. Or sleep in and catch it online.

Keith? The Stones concert ended an hour ago. You missed it.

The Count.

Cristy and I are collecting songs with numbers in the title for a sixty-minute radio show from eight to nine (CST) tomorrow morning on WEFT ninety point one FM (streaming on Our challenge is to have sequential numbers from one to infinity, with the help of School House Rock and Here Come the 123s. We are a long way from our goal, as you can see from our list so far:

17 days, prince
thirteen, big star
1%, janes addiction
splash one, 13th floor elevators
year one, X
five to one, doors
the four horsemen, aphrodite’s child (mind blowing)
25 o’clock, dukes
that Chicago song (25 or …)
16 Military Wives
7 x 7 Is
1 is the Loneliest Number
Two of Us
From a Buick 6
8 Miles High
1000 Umbrellas

I don’t know whether those arbitrarily-numbered Bob Dylan songs should be allowed to count. Your assistance is needed.

Listen to it loud. This one goes up to 13.

Today Cristy and I will be waking you up to songs about summer on Rock Geek F.M.

Ain't it beautiful?

He wouldn’t let me wear a helmet.

On June 29 Rock Geek F.M. hosted an introduction to heavy metal featuring resident expert Jason Greenly. Here’s the entire show, blood, pus, and all (uploaded temporarily, as I don’t want the heavy metal copyright lawyers leaving a bloody axe impaled in my front door).

Listen and worry about the kids of today.

Here’s Cristy and William rocking out, providing an alternative soundtrack to the local fireworks display, celebrating this nation’s great composers. These songs don’t run!

Light fuse and get away!
