A Season in Hell
Hell's Kitchen Radio #499: Penultimate Nightmare
I enjoy shopping in my own record store. Or in this case, my music library at home. Before we got priced out of SF, I had a really nice music room where I had my record shelves, along with the 12 CD shelves, each 12 feet long, that I built on my own to house my ever growing bootleg collection, along with the obvious officially released material. Oh wow, I used to love being down there pulling out music, kicking back and getting excited about what I was going to play on my next show.

And then we had to move.

Now, I really do enjoy living in Berkeley. Say what you will, but I'm no Berkeley snob. I've seen the way people turn up their nose at me for the kale I choose at Berkeley Bowl, but they can all just go to Hell. To Hell I say!

And our rental is just fine, if not pretty small. And the walls are thin. At least I have a driveway. And my records are in the living room! And I'm running out of room. I had to ditch the CD shelves for CD binders, but that's ok. Right? Sure. That also means I don't play a lot of CDs on my shows these days. That being said I reached up high on the shelf in Bodhi's closet the other day to grab one of my many CD binders. Tonight features some of what was found in there.

I haven't purchased a CD in many moons, and much of what I have in there I think I have a flac version of now anyway, but there are still some real treats that I almost forgot I owned. Giant Sand, New Duncan Imperials, Idiot Flesh, and Built To Spill are just a few of the discs I brought along tonight.

I also start the show with a few extra tracks from 1968, that I didn't get to last week on my 12th annual Annual Annual. It's a fun opening set.

There's a Sam Cooke live cut you think you know, but you don't know. The Iggy set is SET OF THE NIGHT! I made an executive decision and just kept it going.

There's a lot packed into this two hours. Take a look at the setlist and click the link above to enjoy the show. Tune in next Monday, December 19, from 8-midnight to help me celebrate my 500th show on Radio Valencia! As Little Lauson Hell said to me recently "wow, that's half of 1000". Smart girl there.

Hey, 1993 called, they want their CDs back.
