Laughtrack Mixes No. 8 and 9: Unplayable

Today was the day I had planned on uploading the last two shows I did on WZBC, in the wake of a Cardinals World Series victory, but apparently it wasn’t meant to be. All I have from those shows is a couple of playlists, unfortunately. Not sure what happened to my files, but you won’t be hearing any music when you try to play them.

Frustrating, but oh well.

You might still want to know what I played for one reason or another, and for the sake of documenting my play lists, I’m including them in this post.

In the meantime, I have no new music to provide, and nothing new in the way of reviews. I hope to get the ball rolling again in November, and maybe I’ll even get around to posting some of those Feldman morsels I’m still chewing on; since reading his book, I’ve jumped into AMM and Cardew territory, so there’s plenty I’d like to write about, just not enough time to do it in.

To top it all off, I have more music than I know what to do with. I grabbed a copy of the new Fahey box set, which I’ve yet to get all the way through, and I’m still in love with the latest Glenn Jones record out on Thrill Jockey. Die Schachtel is having a great year, with both their Gruppo NPS and Franca Sacchi releases commanding a good deal of my attention, along side their reissue of The Electric Harpsichord, and that doesn’t include the numerous PAN releases that I want to give my time. There are worse problems to have, but I hate it when I get out of practice like this.

But, that’s enough complaining. Here’s the R&B/funk/gospel show I played, and that I wish I could post:
