Alls I Got Is R-N-R, or November 1993 playlists

reatards

The Reatards, San Francisco, 10.29.05 | Canon Powershot A80, 7.8mm, 2.5 sec, f8

How is it November already? These past few months have been a bit of a mental marathon for me, what with weddings, honeymoons, and funerals to tackle in addition to life in general. It continues today as I cram five decades of music into three hours (9am-noon PST, to be exact) on KALX to make up for my lack of participation in its 50th anniversary this year. Although I allotted 30 minutes per decade, I have a feeling the show’s going to sound not much different from what I usually do.

From my personal archives I dug up live performances of the Reatards (11/10/99) and the Mind Controls (05/06), as well as interviews with Jo Callis of the Rezillos (6/22/02) and a never-before-aired one with Matt Dangerfield and Honest John Plain of the Boys (9/23/00). I couldn’t find the recordings of my interviews with the Buzzcocks or Heavenly in 1994, but “spastic” comes to mind so that’s probably just as well.

Speaking of spastic, C and I will have a photo exhibit at the Rite Spot in San Francisco beginning this Sunday, with a reception from 5-8pm. Proceeds from all photo sales will go towards the hospital bills of our dear friend Reggie Destin, who was struck by a drunk driver while skateboarding in a Chicago bike lane; he died from his injuries a week later. We miss his warm smile, big laugh, and huge heart but will strive to live life as fully and selflessly as he did.
