TBD on Ning

Via internet stream you can listen to a variety of interesting music.

Google WQNA to find the stream. The show is called Fear and Loathing in Springfield and it airs 6 - 9PM CST on Sunday evenings.

It may uplift the downtrodden and down trod the uplifted. Some may faint, others may experience moments of rage and in some cases hilarity.

"Take It With Me", by Tom Waits - Got It. Always a pleasure to hear from one of the old gang, Angharad.

I pretty much stopped posting here when I realized that I hadn't gotten a single reply to any of my posts in six months. Just seemed like nobody was paying attention anymore - Maybe this site should change its name to "Ghost Town, USA"....

Yeah, I'm still doing the show. Took a year off to deal with some family and some health issues, but I've been back since Halloween of '16. I will be doing the Valentine's Day show tonight, February, 11th, starting around 6:00 CST; Not only is it the VD (Ha !) show, but Mardi Gras came early this year, so I'll be cramming some street parade and voudou goodies in there, too - Should be pretty strange, which is the way I like it.

We're pretty much okay here....Old age creeping up on us, got a kitten, blah blah blah.

Thanks, Snagg. I figured you wouldn't see my post, so this is a nice surprise.

"Ghost Town, U.S.A." is definitely apropos. Or, perhaps, "The Halls of Ivy" or, "This House Is Empty Now," (for fans of Elvis C.), or just leave it TBD --"Thoroughly Bloody Deceased." There are still a few specters like me here who wander in and out. I, for one, am a facebookophobe, and don't tweet or snap or gram; so, that leaves me out of the whole social media whirl.


Anyway, I'm glad to hear you're still hangin' in on various fronts. Yeah, age has chewed my tail feathers just about off. But, fuck it, I never was very good at straight lines of flight.

I'll tune in tonight. Strange is just my style. 

Snuggle that kitten for me, and anyone else you feel like snuggling.

Ironic update. (I don't seem to fly any other way. ツ )

I've listened and enjoyed your show enormously, Snagg, as always. Here's the ironic bit. I was listening happily and then my DSL dropped--I was only off for a minute--but when I came back, I heard "Anne," then I dropped again and came back on the last few notes of "Take It With Me." Okay, tears came to my eyes because I'd missed it. Then I heard you say you were going to repeat the dedications--upswing of happiness--and I dropped again directly before mine was read. Cue emotional downpour.

Uhhhh, do you think I should I be watching for gremlins or poltergeist? 

Anyway, will this broadcast be archived somewhere? 

When you spoke about the "old gang" and I heard a few familiar and well-loved names, it warmed my heart. Thank you. I do miss the Mothership. 

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day and overindulge in something sweet (food or otherwise ❤).

Good God, it's me again.

I was thinking about no one commenting on your posts. Just so you know, it really is about most everyone being AWOL. Funes is still around somewhere, I think, but VERY seldom posts; Pru hasn't made an appearance in a (very old) coon's age; Slayer Dug did, I believe, show up once recently; we've lost a few to the grim reaper and more to Facebook; and Teebub has dropped out of sight both here and on Facebook. I believe he's okay, just exhausted and sorting RL things out.  

One person is probably no reason to do the work of posting here again, but if you want to, I'll chime in.

Ah, well - Here we go again:

Now I remember another reason I quit hanging around here - The damn formatting sucks.

No kidding. :>) 

I record all my shows onto a thumb drive; We used to use an archiving site - the accursed Ustream - But it got so buggy and malware-y, that we had to ban it from the station computers.

Which kinda put the kibosh on posting shows - Ustream sucked ass, but it was FREE; All the other archiving sites want serious bucks , per month, to post anything. I want to share my little idiot fests with others, but not THAT much.

I have yet to figure out how to post them to a website; Maybe someday I'll get a tutorial from some nice person who knows that shit inside out, and can teach a lunkhead like me ow to struggle by...

Uh, I don't buy "lunkhead." I can't even imagine "technologically challenged," in your case.

Yup, I remember the Ustream debacle. Too bad "free" so often equates to "useless." As you said somewhere, in this money grubbing culture you get what you pay for.

I'm sure you know this, but there are a shitload of videos on YT about uploading audio files to YT. In fact, there are a shitload of videos on the Internet about uploading audio files to any place you want to upload (lobbing the ball--haha). What I know absolutely nothing about is copyright issues around uploading a playlist of songs. Probably somebody at WQNA knows about that. If you ever get around to figuring it out, it would be great to be able to listen at leisure to your show.

A roller coaster ride, Snagg! You are always a source of new artists and tunes for me. And music is the way I make it through life--bad shit and good--so new tools and new joys are so much appreciated.  

Love "Carry Fire." Hadn't heard "Walk Between the Raindrops"--I'm humming it now...damned brain worm! :>) Or, "I Can Still See."  And it feels like I hadn't heard the Hickoids since the late 80's in the 9:30 Club in D.C.  

Anyway, great tunes.


Music is how I remind myself that there's hope in the world for others to see (or hear) someone elses' point of view; When I was just in my twenties, and punk was taking off, I was the only one in my circle of friends who would give it a chance - The rest were all Classic Rock / KISS / Ted Nugent fans. One of 'em, in particular - "Steve" -  LOATHED the Sex Pistols without ever hearing them - "They're GROSS ! They're RUDE ! They can't PLAY !", grouched the ardent KISS fan.

So, one day over at his house, playing records, I waited until he left the room to slip on "Never Mind The Bollocks". I cranked it up, he came back in the room, nodding his head, air guitaring, yelling "These guys ROCK ! Who ARE they ?"

I showed him the album cover. His face fell, and he immediately screamed "Take it OFF ! They SUCK !"

I told him to go fuck himself. I gathered up my albums, walked out and never spoke to him again.

That's NOT the kind of person I'm trying to reach. I'm trying to reach the kind of people who make the mistake of letting guys like him tell them what to listen to.

The stuff I play isn't "good'' just because I like it - It's good because it scares the crap out of dumb chickenshits like ol' Steve, and the world needs a lot less cowardly liars like him thinking that they're entitled to be running things.
