A Season in Hell
Hell's Kitchen Radio #289: This Could Be The Last Time
January 16, 2017 @ 8:00pm
Like my father says "it's always something". And isn't that the truth. Last Monday was MLK Day, and then we had that underwhelming inauguration on Friday. How was your week? How are we going to love and support one another? Do I have a responsibility to make my show more political, or do you just want music and interviews? I'm curious about your thoughts on this one.
As always a mixed bag of what I was into last week. The first hour is a tribute to MLK. I'm sticking with my commitment to play more from my live archive during the second hour. I always tack on the date and location for these tracks. New music from Charles Mootheart (CFM), The Blind Shake, and Dead Ending (with a new anti-Trump tune).
If anything good comes out of this new presidency I'm guessing it'll be the onslaught of great punk tunes.
If you wish to contribute to my annual Run for the Lilies contest, you have until Sunday, January 29th to get me your list. Just email me the names of ten famous people you believe won't be alive by the end of this calendar year. The only rule: you may NOT participate in their demise. I'll announce the winner of the 2016 Run for the Lilies on Monday, January 30th.
