My set: Songs I would play were I to be able to play the guitar
my cassettes in one place and sorting them, I came across very early effort for KFAI. The Wave Project
is a Do-It-Yourself show. Shockwave Radio Theater
was doing original science fiction and playing with the minds of our listeners. Nonetheless, I consider myself a musician.
I volunteered to to a Wave Project
on October 19, 1981, and submitted a tape, with my spoken intros, canned applause and the music I would play. If I played. Which I don't. Here is my set list for a virtual gig:Intro
(recording of me introducing the concept and welcoming everyone)Streets of London
(30 years later, still my favorite song)Applause
(I pulled these from various live recordings)John BarleycornDemon LoverIntro
/Drag Queen Blues lyricsApplause/outro to breakIntroOne MeatballLittle Red Riding Hood
Time In A Spraycan (A Shockwave Radio Theater bit I wrote, available as audio
)Australian Table WinesInvitation to the Ping Pong BallApplauseSaucy Sailor
(my traditional last song)
I find it vastly amusing that I can, in 2010, find audio and/or video links to almost all of these except the Shockwave
. You can even find audio for Drag Queen Blues
, but on various annoying mp3 sites and usually excerpts, so I didn't link to any of them.
Anyway... thanks for coming out tonight. I'll be here for the next three decades. Be sure to tip your waitress and pay your shareware fees. G'night!
