I haven’t been posting updates or links to my radio show playlists, or much of anything else for that matter, because nobody looks at this thing anymore, do they? #undeadweblog

Fess in Spaaaaaaace!

I had a dream last night that I was asked to be on a crew to help send Professor Longhair to space. He really wanted to go, and for some reason it was in a Mercury capsule. I was helping him get into that old-style Alan Shepard silvery spacesuit, and then into that tiny spacecraft.

(Technical incongruity … it was a a Redstone booster but he was going to be doing orbits, which required an Atlas booster because Redstone could only do suborbital boosts. I’m going to have to have a word with my Dreamland Science Consultant.)

He was really into it. I couldn’t wait to hear the songs that would come out of this trip but I woke up too soon.

Safe at Home Radio

*tap*tap*tap* … Is this thing still on?

Oh look, it’s an undead (we)blog! Untouched by human hands in almost three years!

Hi, y’all.

I’ve been contemplating resurrecting it via various occult spells and black magic (i.e., actually posting on it again), but I have no idea if there’s anyone out there reading it. I supposed I could have been posting my streaming radio show playlists here (and yes, I’m still doing it!) but other things that cross my mind, just like back in the old blogging days.

I’d kinda been doing that on Twitter, but since Elon Fucking Musk bought it it’s dropped to an even deeper circle of Hell, and I suspect its says (and my days there) are numbered. I plan to go out in a bang by getting myself thrown off by swearing at a Republican, a Nazi (not much difference these days), a TERF, or just some annoying rando fucknuckle. We’ll see.

It’s a pity, there’s still a great Star Trek community there, cooks and chefs, science fiction and fantasy writers, et al. I do enjoy those people. But the right-wing trolls are of course still there, encouraged by Musk as he actually reactivates the accounts of literal Nazis who’d been previously banned. Now he’s made his remaining coders change Twitter’s code so that you actually get your own reach diminished if you block or mute other accounts.

Anyway, I have no idea if people still use RSS feeds (Google continues to have made an ENORMOUS mistake by killing Google Reader; I use Feedly myself), but if you do, and you see this, and you won’t mind recurring content, please holler at me!

Safe at Home Radio, May 2, 2020

Today’s edition of my new radio show “Safe at Home” is now up for streaming on demand, anytime … after DJ Soul Sister is over on WWOZ tonight, or before or after Jazzfesting in Place on ‘OZ tomorrow. 😄

I continue to have the temerity to do a live radio show while WWOZ is Jazzfesting in Place, and not only that … programming my own Jazzfest material! Oh well, I promised to do a show today, and that I did. (Grateful for online archive!) Featuring music from Dave Bartholomew, Snooks Eaglin, Professor Longhair, Allen Toussaint, Rhiannon Giddens, Bruce Springsteen and more. Enjoy!
