End of Show Analysis

Tomorrow is the last time I will do Ugly Music for Beautiful People. I’m switching to a different show. It’s a psychedelic show on Saturdays from 2 to 4. I’ve been doing Ugly Music for Beautiful People since January 6th of 2005. That’s over a year and a half. I’m kinda tired of it, and am looking forward to doing something a bit different. However, I’ll always fondly remember my old show.

Tomorrows show will be podcast.

In memorium of its demise, here’s some analysis I did of my playlists:

Here are my 31 most played artists.

The Peppermints take number 1, mostly because they played a show here a while back and I played the shit out of their album to help promote it. Also, their songs are very short, so whenever I played some Peppermints, I played several tracks.

Here’s my top played albums:

Ugly Music for Beautiful People 08/09/06

This week’s show.

Due to a change in my work schedule, next week’s edition of Ugly Music for Beautiful People will be my last. So I decided to record and podcast my last two shows. Thanks to everyone who listened, be it on podcast, online streaming or FM. And special thanks to everyone who called or commented to let me know that you were enjoying what I was playing. It really does mean a lot.

On the upside, I’ll continue doing my psychedelic music show (formerly known as Just Another Diamond Day; new name TBD). I haven’t decided whether or not to podcast it, though. Due to the nature of the show, I’ll be playing music released on major labels, so I’m somewhat worried about the legalities of podcasting it. I’d really rather not get a nastygram from Blue Cheer’s agent or something like that.
