I tend to listen to music differently than most people. I don't like music on as background; I listen to the music, and prefer silence for everything else. There are exceptions, but not many. With a stack of CDs people have been sending me to review and the haul from Marscon, my To Be Listened To shelves overflowed into several stacks, and the somewhat smaller but still daunting CDs in my Enter Into Individual Song Database shelf. I resolved to listen to a filk/fannish/demented CD, one of the other ones, and enter at least one in the song database, but wound up listening to more of the Marscon stuff so I can play it on the air today.
One thing before I go behind a cut:
Will people who release CDs please PUT THE TIMES OF THE SONGS ON THE TRACK LISTING.
Sumophobia Alpha by wormquartet (I'll have to bleep most of my favorite songs, so I might just air the Russian McDonald's Commercial and bowdlerize later)
Entered Sleepy Train by Michael Mish
Desesperados by Vento Norteno (a mariachi CD I got in the parking lot across the street)
Me First and the Gimme Gimmees, The Complete B-Sides from ericcoleman
Entered The Who, Ultimate Collection, two discs worth of music from 1964-1982. After watching all the CSI's, I had to hear the full songs...
Technobabble (wow, someone doesn't know how to enter things in CDDB); terrific collection, missing Shockwave Radio Theater skits...
Songs of the Computer from mle292; this is the CD exchanged for The Minnesota Connection. Some great stuff I've never heard!
Will Rock For Food by Hot Waffles. Some good stuff, but my computer could only read the .mov file not the .wmv file. Oh well.
Dipped into the Tom Smith's And They Say I've Got Talent for airability. filkertom tends not to have Naughty Words in his songs, but it's worth checking
Well, I'm going to play a bunch of this stuff from 3:30-4pm today, Sat 3/11/06 90.3FM Mpls, 106.7FM St. P. Streaming audio available through Fresh Air Radio streaming audio, show archive up for two weeks (scroll down to Shockwave); podcast up sometime later.
