— Jean’s comment upon seeing headline President Obama vs Asian Carp in Minneapolis Star-Tribune. (The story was about Upper Midwest politicos petitioning the president to ask Illinois to close gates allowing the vile invasive species access to the Upper Mississippi.)
Doug The Thug sez: Once again I hijacked Across The Board for the evening playing mostly mashups of disparate classic hits created by people who have waaaay too much time on their hands. I also threw in some of my own mashups. Included in the mix were a bunch of 12” vinyl records found by a dumpster in Uptown. They were priceless gems of DJ mixes from the late 80s and early 90s. MADONNAHEAVEN as well as Depeche Mode, Annie Lennox, YAZ, Bjork, Tori Amos, Kate Bush, Mary J Blige. A veritable treasure trove. Half of them had totally blank labels so each one was a surprise. Also on this show: THEEXCLUSIVESNEAKPREVIEWWORLDPREMIERE OF LAUNDROMATVACATION’S NEWESTALBUM.
A track entitled: “Aqua Naught”.
I even SCOOPED Radio Rumpus Room!
Big morning for new releases: my list at 6:30 included Magnetic Fields, Scout Niblett, Four Tet, Eric Bibb, Bei Bei Shawn Lee, Soweto Gospel Choir, and we heard from Beach House and Retribution Gospel Choir. We also heard from Juliana Hatfield’s forthcoming album, Peace Love. Nice thought.
