A Season in Hell
Hell's Kitchen #222: I Salute You
May 25, 2015 @ 8:00pm
It was Memorial Day last Monday night. How am I supposed to celebrate this day? I think the playlist says it all. I'm certainly not going to make it all about John Philip Sousa. I'm a pacifist at heart. Really. I don't see any reason why the working class would ever want war. War is only for war profiteers.
In the second hour I feature some new music from Thee Oh Sees, Metz, White Hills, Queen Crescent, Tad Doyle's new band: Brothers of the Sonic Cloth, and Father John Misty. It's a fun night, worth the price of my rants alone.
I'm not on the air tonight, as I'm back east in South Carolina for a few days. I haven't been here since I was a wee lad, visiting Myrtel Beach back in 1977. Though I would never wish to leave my beautiful San Francisco for anywhere else, traveling to destinations like Hilton Head, South Carolina does indeed clear my head.
I'll be back on the air next Monday night, with members of Illogistical Resources Department stopping by to talk up their new release, which you can stream here.
See you on the radio.
