Aircheck of pop-up May Day music show.


The first of May is always International Workers Day, Labor Day of the world. There was a lot of worker-related music left over from my Friday night show, so I got permission* to use KNYO’s transmitter when Fred finished his every-Monday-night show at 9:30pm. I messed around till 11pm, covering the periodic table of different categories of workers: astronauts, prostitutes, chicken farmers, truck drivers, waitresses, musicians, deejays, tent-show barkers, miners, teachers, rescue persons, mechanics, carpenters, fishers, electricians, ties and socks, glass figurines, the discount shoe industry. I stopped short of the transuranics and signed off; you don’t have to worry about any damage to the family germ plasm. I know people are concerned about that sort of thing and I’m trying to be more sensitive.

Contents may include: Lord Buckley, King Crimson, Eliza Gilkyson, Don McLean, Norel Pref, Al Jolson, Firesign Theater, Linda Ronstadt, Fanny Brice, Billy Nayer, Nate DiMeo, Meryn Caddell, Ada Jones, the Red Army Choir, Hoosier Hotshots, Onion News Network, the MacArthur Park May Day police riot (2007), The Police, Die Antwoort, Jay Leonhart, Hugh Blumenfeld, Bruce Adler, sound from old rainy-day school filmstrip records about slip safety, fire safety…

Here’s a link to the aircheck on MediaFire. Or, thanks to Hank Sims of Lost Coast Outpost, you can get it this other way, which you might like better because it offers an instant-play option and isn’t surrounded by confusing flashing ads.

*You can do this sort of thing too. KNYO is wide open to creative and/or educational whims, musical or otherwise. If you want airtime on KNYO for a show of your own devising, contact Bob Young and say so, and you’ll be on the air before you know it. That’s the way radio is supposed to be.

Oh, and here’s a petition to tell FCC Chairman Ajit Pai not to kill net neutrality:

And the short animated film /Double King/.
