Week of April 10th

This week’s show was inspired by the good weather that we’ve been having here in Iowa City. It’s been really nice here following the shit show that was the winter. Anyway, the aim this week was to be more upbeat and positive. I think I succeeded in that, but this show was totally all over the place. It didn’t keep the link, which is fine I guess. I just like things to build smoothly. Personal preference. If you listened, I hope that you enjoyed it. Until next week…when we get back to business. I’m updating a show that I did 2 years and 2 weeks (at the time of airing) prior.

Week of April 3rd

This happened during Mission Creek Week, which is usually a busy time for me. Luckily, I did not have to do anything as my intern did it for me.

Jacob did a good job. I didn’t have to provide too much guidance. Most importantly, the show sounded like something that I would have done on my own for the most part, which is good.

To the playlist. He wrote his in a different order than I’m used to. It’s title then artist. You’re on your own with the albums…

Week of March 27th

This is the reworking of a show that I did back in the Summer of 2011 called Slowdance No. 5. As I noted elsewhere on this blog, the original three slowdance playlists were always in a variable order as they were always randomized. That spirit continues here. And, just for fun, I threw some new tracks in to make things a little more colorful.

Next week, Jacob is in control of the radio program. I do not know what he is going to do.

Week of March 6th

This week’s show is entitled Ladies Night. In tribute to Women’s History Month, I decided to cede the floor to the ladies. This show features sounds made and organized by ladies. There was no male input on this program. While this sounds like it would be really easy, it wasn’t. It was actually extremely hard to get this show in order. I have a lot of ladies in my archive, and it took quite a bit of work to make sure that I actually got the ones who were working only with other ladies.

Anyway, below is the playlist for this show. If you were listening in real time, I hope that you enjoyed it. I think this one was actually pretty good. It got a little random at points, but I think it was the right way to do this show.

Week of February 27th

This week’s show is entitled Africa Galore. This was the second of two African music shows. This one focused on the other rhythms present in Africa, particularly the best of rhythms: the polyrhythm. As you will see from the playlist, this show went all over the continent.

As a bonus for this week’s playlist, you can click on each artist’s name to acquire the album that the track came from.

Next week, the ladies will be taking the stage. It’ll be their show until at least Spring Break, if not longer. We’ll see what happens. Until then, I’m out.

Week of February 20th

All of this week’s tracks come from a compilation called Africa 100. It is easily obtainable via the interwebs, especially since it was never released as a real thing. All of the tracks trace the sound of Afrobeat across the continent. As a whole, it is a riveting listen. It is also over 9 hours in length.

This week’s show is a distillation of that compilation called Africa 21. The 79 tracks that were left off also rip, but 9 hours. I took out what I jammed to the hardest when I put this together during the afternoon sans Fela (b/c I mean, really, I could do an entire show just about him, and very well may in the future). The result is the playlist below.

Geraldo Pino - Heavy Heavy Heavy (Sierra Leone)

Week of February 13th

To begin, I did this show early because I was covering for The Fuzz Fix, which usually comes on before my show. Since I was getting preempted for basketball and they could do their show, I’d slide in and get it done.

This week’s show was all Black music. There were two exceptions. The first is that Charlie Haden was the bassist on the Ornette Coleman track and the second is that Sade’s backing band is all white. Otherwise, the whole show was Black in tribute to Black History Month, the month we are in now.

Actually, until March, all of the show’s will be connected to either Blackness or the African Diaspora. It should be fun for everyone involved. I’ve got some good shows in the tank, so keep listening.They will mostly be African music for the record. Lots and lots of polyrhythms.

This is a new time for me, so I’m still getting the kinks out. This means not playing songs that swear. I failed a bit on this one this week, so if you are sensitive to that, I totally apologize. Next week, we’re dealing with Black musicians because it is Black History Month. Yea.

This show featured only music from countries within the Commonwealth of Nations. With some further preparation, this theme will be revisited.

Week of December 5th

This show is entitled Black & Blue. It is the combination of two different color-based ideas that I had for this show. The first was “Blue is the Warmest Color”. It was not going to be lesbian-tinged in reference to the movie. It was just going to be all blue songs. I thought that might get boring, so I came up with a different idea to do a show in Black and White. Black and white songs would be the show with maybe an alternation between. That didn’t sound that appealing. Plus, I don’t own a ton of white songs. That’s not a racial motivation on my part. I just think the artists I have are really sad and don’t deal in white too much. Anyway, the midpoint was this show.

I think that it came out alright. In looking at the mail outside in the station lobby, it makes me wonder if this show should pick a genre and stick with it. I think that would probably get me more promo cd’s (if you are a psych/shoegaze/indie pop/experimental/punk/neo-disco/noise band that wants to get played, you should get at me at chrysanthemumss (at) gmail (dot) com because I will play you if it’s good), but I don’t like being confined to a genre. I used to do genre programming, but it wasn’t really fun. It’s more fun to be unpredictable in someways. This is a tangent though.

Week of November 21st

This show was a replay of a show that I did on May 5th, 2011. You can read about it there.

Week of November 14th

This show was a return to a classic well of themes for this program: the grammar rodeo. This version focused on the sentence. Most of the sentences in this show could stand on their own. Even the ones that didn’t are still grammatically correct, which was the most important thing for me here. I don’t know what will come in the future, but I did enjoy this show a lot. I also question whether this introduction even makes sense. I don’t know. I’m mad tired though, so I don’t particularly care about that right now.

Week of March 6th

This week’s show is entitled Ladies Night. In tribute to Women’s History Month, I decided to cede the floor to the ladies. This show features sounds made and organized by ladies. There was no male input on this program. While this sounds like it would be really easy, it wasn’t. It was actually extremely hard to get this show in order. I have a lot of ladies in my archive, and it took quite a bit of work to make sure that I actually got the ones who were working only with other ladies.

Anyway, below is the playlist for this show. If you were listening in real time, I hope that you enjoyed it. I think this one was actually pretty good. It got a little random at points, but I think it was the right way to do this show.

Week of February 27th

This week’s show is entitled Africa Galore. This was the second of two African music shows. This one focused on the other rhythms present in Africa, particularly the best of rhythms: the polyrhythm. As you will see from the playlist, this show went all over the continent.

As a bonus for this week’s playlist, you can click on each artist’s name to acquire the album that the track came from.

Next week, the ladies will be taking the stage. It’ll be their show until at least Spring Break, if not longer. We’ll see what happens. Until then, I’m out.

Week of February 20th

All of this week’s tracks come from a compilation called Africa 100. It is easily obtainable via the interwebs, especially since it was never released as a real thing. All of the tracks trace the sound of Afrobeat across the continent. As a whole, it is a riveting listen. It is also over 9 hours in length.

This week’s show is a distillation of that compilation called Africa 21. The 79 tracks that were left off also rip, but 9 hours. I took out what I jammed to the hardest when I put this together during the afternoon sans Fela (b/c I mean, really, I could do an entire show just about him, and very well may in the future). The result is the playlist below.

Geraldo Pino - Heavy Heavy Heavy (Sierra Leone)

Week of February 13th

To begin, I did this show early because I was covering for The Fuzz Fix, which usually comes on before my show. Since I was getting preempted for basketball and they could do their show, I’d slide in and get it done.

This week’s show was all Black music. There were two exceptions. The first is that Charlie Haden was the bassist on the Ornette Coleman track and the second is that Sade’s backing band is all white. Otherwise, the whole show was Black in tribute to Black History Month, the month we are in now.

Actually, until March, all of the show’s will be connected to either Blackness or the African Diaspora. It should be fun for everyone involved. I’ve got some good shows in the tank, so keep listening.They will mostly be African music for the record. Lots and lots of polyrhythms.

Week of February 6th

This is a new time for me, so I’m still getting the kinks out. This means not playing songs that swear. I failed a bit on this one this week, so if you are sensitive to that, I totally apologize. Next week, we’re dealing with Black musicians because it is Black History Month. Yea.

This show featured only music from countries within the Commonwealth of Nations. With some further preparation, this theme will be revisited. On a side note, I will attempt an all-Canadian show next semester. Canada is making some really killer music right now, and I want to get further into that. That BIZZARH track is murderously good.

Week of December 5th

This show is entitled Black & Blue. It is the combination of two different color-based ideas that I had for this show. The first was “Blue is the Warmest Color”. It was not going to be lesbian-tinged in reference to the movie. It was just going to be all blue songs. I thought that might get boring, so I came up with a different idea to do a show in Black and White. Black and white songs would be the show with maybe an alternation between. That didn’t sound that appealing. Plus, I don’t own a ton of white songs. That’s not a racial motivation on my part. I just think the artists I have are really sad and don’t deal in white too much. Anyway, the midpoint was this show.

I think that it came out alright. In looking at the mail outside in the station lobby, it makes me wonder if this show should pick a genre and stick with it. I think that would probably get me more promo cd’s (if you are a psych/shoegaze/indie pop/experimental/punk/neo-disco/noise band that wants to get played, you should get at me at chrysanthemumss (at) gmail (dot) com because I will play you if it’s good), but I don’t like being confined to a genre. I used to do genre programming, but it wasn’t really fun. It’s more fun to be unpredictable in someways. This is a tangent though.

Week of November 21st

This show was a replay of a show that I did on May 5th, 2011. You can read about it there.

Week of November 14th

This show was a return to a classic well of themes for this program: the grammar rodeo. This version focused on the sentence. Most of the sentences in this show could stand on their own. Even the ones that didn’t are still grammatically correct, which was the most important thing for me here. I don’t know what will come in the future, but I did enjoy this show a lot. I also question whether this introduction even makes sense. I don’t know. I’m mad tired though, so I don’t particularly care about that right now.
