Oh lordy. I did that thing again where I got my show prepared a few days in advance, and then the night before I suddenly wanted to change a bunch of songs. But it’s been a long week and I needed my sleep instead of spending all night fiddling with files. So I’m going to stick with my original plan which includes Strand of Oaks, Siouxsie And The Banshees, Wanda Jackson, Magnetic Fields, Link Wray, AJ Davila, and much more. I hope you enjoy the show! Thank you for listening!

Pour yourself a shot of anger to go with your beer
Let’s be the sand in the gears for the next four years”

I planned out this week’s show a little bit at a time over several days. And I just realized that I’m really NOT sure how to describe it. It gets a little LOUDER that what I usually play in the morning. It’s got several songs about lies. It’s got a shark, a hurricane, a spy, a taser gun, and 3 references to Mexico. The artists in my planned playlist include Bob Mould, Ana Tijoux, Low, King Khan, Truman, Woody Guthrie, Shana Falana, and Fugazi. Anyway, thanks for tuning in, and I hope you enjoy the show!

Ice-T’s band Body Count has just put out a new song! It’s pretty fantastic, but it’s not FCC-friendly. … But I REALLY want to play it for you, so I’ve once again tested my MAD AUDIO EDITING SKILLS and fuzzed out the 22-or-so f*cks and sh*ts that are peppered through the song. Tune in to hear my radio magic. (I mean really, where else other than WRIR are you going to hear Ice-T, The Walker Brothers, and Kronos Quartet all in one show? IT’S RADIO MAGIC!)

I’m pretty stoked about this week’s show. Prince, Grace Jones, Santigold, Noisettes, Bad Brains, Xenia Rubinos, and much more. I can promise that there will be booty shaking in the studio. I’ll keep my inhaler on hand so I don’t stop breathing.

Valentine’s Day is coming up soon, so this week’s show is “Lust In A Time of Fascism”. We’ve got sexuality! We’ve got bondage! We’ve got stripping! We’ve got drag! And it’s ALLLLL FCC compliant thanks to my magical editing skills. I have literally edited the f*ck out of these songs. I’ve also got A TICKET GIVEAWAY to go see PWR BTTM in Charlottesville on Feb 15!!! Keep listening for your chance to win!

Hi everybody! Are you ready for the WRIR Party for The Rest Of Us on Friday?!?!?! WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

I’m gonna party for my right to fight. Listen to good music. See good friends. Eat as many cheese cubes as I can fit in my mouth at one time. DJ for a bit, and then get back to business. Are you with me?

Last night, my dear listeners, I put my music editing skills to the test in order to prepare a RADIO FRIENDLY version of Rage Against The Machine’s 1992 song “Killing In The Name” in honor of the @rogueNASA, @AltNatParkSer, @AltUSEPA, @Alt_CDC, @ungaggedEPA, @AltHHS, @alt_fda, @altusda, and @AltForestServ Twitter accounts that popped up in resistance to government censorship. Tune in tomorrow to see if it turns out better than the crappy cut-off edits I found on YouTube.
