The New Thing

So I decided that I am going to start doing some record sharity on this here blog. I’ll still use it to post my radio show playlists, but about once a week or so, I’ll throw up an album or some singles. I’m not sticking to any genre or theme. Instead I’ll be posting vinyl from my collection that is rare and out-of-print. I’m going to start out with a double shot: a Les Rallizes Denudes bootleg and a pair of singles on Lloyd Price’s Turntable from ’69.

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:

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.

general notes

So, I haven’t posted a playlist in a while. I’ve been pretty lazy and just hadn’t done it. Also, I’ve decided to stop podcasting my show. It just became too much work, especially now that I’m doing two shows. I’ve added a psychedelic pop, rock and folk show called Just Another Diamond Day. It’s a whole lot of fun to do.
