We’re no longer hosting Rock Geek F.M. Saturdays on WEFT. Once again, we’re looking for a new time slot, or venue, but will continue to produce Rock Geek material as long as we can still find the energy to fight about whether Revolver or Sgt. Pepper is the better album. Which is how we met. I won’t tell you who’s on which side, but until we get this resolved, were destined to remain together.
Here are two fliers for our suspended show to remember us by, expressing both our enthusiasm and our alienation:
All this reggae-styled Italian western needs is a movie.
A show dedicated to movie soundtrack music that never appeared in movies.
We celebrate the fact that soundtrack music, especially Italian horror and western soundtracks, has become a musical genre detached from film.
A dense, lush, funky, orchestral, and creepy mix.
Turn on the projector of your mind and listen here.
This one is actually a real movie, not a fake soundtrack. I didn’t play it. But it looks fake.
Cristy, William, and Baby Chaos identify their favorite stand-out debut albums from 1962 through the present, playing tracks from the greatest first albums released between 1976-1996. All accompanied by astute analysis, personal anecdotes, factual misunderstandings, and a rambunctious toddler. Listen to the first hour here.
They are then joined by Chelsea Bandita and Milkwagon, and help co-host Surfabilly Freakout in a human mash-up called Freaks and Geeks. Surf and rockabilly music old and new, some from places with no beaches whatsoever.
This is the best-selling debut album of all time, according to Wikipedia this morning. #2? Boston. Neither made our list. An oversight? On whose part? Ours or the world’s?
Songs about losers, losing, losing you, for losing, lost losers. Actually a pretty upbeat and punchy mix!
Tune it in and get happy here. I left a chunk of the previous show on this recording so you can cringe at the awkward transitions that are a part and parcel of community radio. It will be a sad day when commercial professionalism entirely consumes the airwaves.
