playlist for 28-oct-2010 five & dime show wmse

whew……..two new posts in a row……i need to catch my breath.      this week i did another theme……lazy dj part II.    last night was the black angels show at turner hall, and i indulged in a few too many beverages to have to think about playing a lot of stuff, so i decided on a bunch of long format songs……………i listen to a lot of floaty instrumental music….not sure what genre it really is, and sometimes like to share a bunch of it in one show, rather than divide it all up…….blah blah blah.     rambling.   i probably don’t post anything but playlists on this blog due to the fact that i am not a fan of words.    i say very little………

quick explanation for the end of the show being all hawkwind/sam gopal…….there was a film festival going on here in milwaukee, and they were screening a documentary about lemmy….so there you go.    didn’t get a chance to actually hear the show?    go to & search the archives for thursday mornings 9-noon.    2 years worth of five & dime shows at your disposal.

i would like to mention again to all my milwaukee readers……faun fables is playing this weekend, the 8th of october, at a rather un-promoted show at shank hall.   look into it, i hope to go, but am not sure at this point if i can make it.     it will be awesome, and you should experience it.

also, i will be filling in for tom wanderer this week, on the 7th of october, and, it being the first thursday of the month, i will honor his tradition of all 45 rpm records.   i have a lot of them, and don’t normally play very many of them during my show… i look forward to sharing them with you.     should be a very interesting/good show if i do say so myself.

thanks for reading & listening.
