Episode # 126 Uncle Ray Melts Down!!!!

May 14, 2017
5:55 pm

Monday morning after acupuncture, my ignition died. Fortunately, I had just re-upped my AAA, so I was able to have it towed to my mechanic in Oakland. Phew!

I started about a half hour late, desperate to go because it would have been the 3rd time XTC vs. the World pt. 2 would have played in it’s entirety. I couldn’t have that.

When I got to Radio Valencia, nothing was working, left turn table out, right turn table 1 channel, CD players, 1 channel. Yikes. I felt like breaking more stuff, but I’m a grown man, besides, most days I LOVE my radio station! Anyway, my fans. fam and friends called in, talked me down, and all was well, we even got all the channels back! Turned into the best show evah! It’s shorter than most shows since I was late, but- ENJOY….
