If you've got an hour, I've got a new episode and nine 12" singles for you, including Kon Kan, Dead or Alive, OMD, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Fashion, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, Saint Etienne, LaTour and... Monkey Business?

Hey hey it took a week for the archive to catch up but if you're a completist, or you're Ian Flomer or you just want to hear me do the worst radio show I've ever got 7 days left to stream it. :)

Attn: @masonbutler @cruisectrlkfai RT @Rhino_Records: This week in 1978, MINUTE BY MINUTE, the eighth studio album from @theDoobieBros, rose to the top of the Billboard Top 200.

So if I understand correctly, you couldn't actually experience my train wreck of an on-air hosting this morning unless you actually tuned it in on a radio, as streaming was down but nobody checked in and told me. Not that I could have fixed it anyway....I would have been all "uhhhh do you own a radio I guess?" Mason said it was some kind of magical impedance box that maybe blew a fuse that took down the cable that makes laptops connect to the board (EDIT: unrelated to streaming not working - I think - or the Wi-Fi going down at 2 minutes to 6), so it's a relief to know I personally didn't break anything or that it was gonna magically work for everybody EXCEPT me - but watching Mason & Barb power through AM Drive without the ability to use laptops was quite a sight. The archive is delayed, but it's not like I'm dying to immediately relive ... well, dying on the air. Worst part is I'm totally turned around on sleep schedule and wondering if I was expecting any calls today. But thanks to Ian Flomer for both his apparent use of a radio and the kind words that I had to open an Instagram app to read. And sorry again for trying to wake up Mason at 0228 (while NOT trying to wake up Leah at 0228 - definitely calling Leah first if there's a next time). SLT, you need to buy two lottery tickets - one for you, one for me.

Well, shit - can't get audio from my laptop - now is a very spontaneous, interesting show if we can't figure it out (lots of long records, I imagine)

RT @DollarBinShow: Our latest episode is up! More lost breakdance music, more forgotten early Underworld, more Bar-Kays, and another long-ass "missing" Flyte Tyme extension. It's everything you (hopefully) love about the show!
2.4 04:30 
I gotta say, I think I did an OK job staying true to the franchise this week. (I also forgot to plug Across the Board at the end, but oh well) Expect a Dollar Bin plug later today ;-) (Cruise Control: 4/2/2019)

Now that the KFAI Pledge Drive is over, our overworked regular hosts need to take a little time off, and guess what that means? YES! MORE CRZ ON THE AIR! Tonight at midnight, I solo guest host a rare live Cruise Control with two hours of smoooooooooooth music - well, probably, mostly, you know how I goooooo. Also, Friday morning (late Thursday night) from 2am to 6am I am subbing on Across The Board with DJ SLT on KFAI where I will play no less than three requests in the first hour alone. Tune in at 90.3 FM or stream live/archived from the ol' website-eroo org! Oh and by the way a new Dollar Bin on KFAI will be available for streaming Tuesday as well! YOU CAN'T SPELL "RADIO MUSICZ" WITHOUT CRZ™.

Got a real nice email from Manchester about the Mark Hollis/Talk Talk tribute show I presented this morning - it was also shared to the Talk Talk fanpage on Facebook and is already receiving hundreds of reacts - and one guy who wished I'd shut up ;-)

Quick reminder that I'm on the air tonight for four hours with a tribute to Mark Hollis! I've also been getting the sniffles all day (and not in the "I'm sad" way that had already hit me since Monday) so look forward to my rapidly deteriorating voice as I present songs from 1977 to 2019!

This Friday on Across The Board with DJ SLT on KFAI, I am presenting four hours of Mark Hollis, Talk Talk and branch acts sprouted from that tree and I *probably* won't even cry (much) (on the air). The funny thing is it was VERY easy to fill all the time and now I'm trying to decide on what to take out. Expect to hear a LOT of things you've never heard before. 2am to 6am! 90.3 and online at KFAIorg. Enormous thanks to DJ SLT for graciously volunteering the time for my audio therapy!

RADIO ALERT: I am filling in for Sean Hansen guest hosting Modern Kicks on KFAI TONIGHT from midnight to 2! There's a good chance I totally diverge from his format, but there's ALSO a good chance you'll hear me take you in some directions you haven't heard me take you on any other show! Depends what I have for lunch, probably...

Longtime KFAI volunteer Larry Englund passed away over the weekend. Amongst the many, MANY things he was, he was a tech writer, which should have been obvious to me from his writing style on his music blog. But the reason I'm sharing this with you is that he ALSO wrote his own obituary, which is super cool on multiple levels and even if you don't know him - and, to be fair, I barely did - it's worth your read. (Rhythm & Grooves: Larry's Obituary)

Also, keeps the sidekicks home! Follow Mason's playlist live @KFAIplaylist RT @cruisectrlkfai: A rare live @cruisectrlkfai is on @kfaiFMradio right friggin' now. The benefits of extreme freezeover in the Midwest? More airtime!
