fm 360 playlist 6.21.10

I’m going to be doing several shows this summer, instead of my traditional Bacon in the Morning shift (Thursdays from 8AM-10AM.) One of them is co-hosting AM 180 with Nikki while Hipster Glo™ is out of town. We call the summer version of AM 180 sans Glo “FM 360″ (get it?) and it airs from 9-11 on Mondays. Here’s the first playlist.

Florence and the Machine – Dog Days
Vampire Weekend – California English Pt. 2 (Cousins 7” b-side)
The Hold Steady – Chips Ahoy (for Jamie & Matt…thanks for introducing me to the awesomesauce that is The motherfucking Hold Steady.)
Sleater-Kinney – All Hands on the Bad One
Grizzly Bear – Two Weeks
Isobella – Black Hair, Green Eyes
Moby – That’s When I Reach For My Revolver (Mission of Burma cover)
Sunny Day Real Estate – Seven
She & Him – In The Sun
Tegan and Sara – Burn Your Life Down
Galaxie 500 – Ceremoy (Joy Division cover)
The Cat Empire – Sly
Camera Obscura – My Maudlin Career (which is just fucking incredible live…trust me. In. Cred. Ible.)
Asobi Seksu – Thursday
The New Pornographers – Crash Years
Taken By Trees – My Boys (Animal Collective cover)
St. Vincent – Marrow
Animal Collective – My Girls (for Hipster Glo™, since she complained)
The Papercuts – Once We Walked In The Sunlight
The Apples in Stereo – Please
Ben Folds Five – Philosophy
The Get Up Kids – Up On The Roof
The Temper Trap – Sweet Disposition
Thao with the Get Down Stay Down – Cool Yourself

This is your brain on Hogs…and Nikki.

OK Go? OK, no.

My friend Blake pointed out to me after my first Bacon in the Morning of the summer that I tend to play OK Go’s This Too Shall Pass every time I’m on air. If you look at the playlists for my show, you’ll see that this is basically true.

So, I’m going to retire This Too Shall Pass from here on out, but before I do, I’m going to post both of the videos for the song.

I’ll also be on the summer version of AM 180, which we’re tentatively calling FM 360, from 8ish-10PM on Mondays starting next week and I’ll be on another as-yet-unnamed show with a yet to be determined time slot with DJ Drew where we’re picking fine, vintage selections from the KSDB archives and playing them for your listening pleasure/torture.

halliphone and auntie mae’s fine poetry night

Blake, the girl I sometimes call Halliphone or Blakeness, read a poem at Auntie Mae’s Mighty Fine Poetry Night last night, which is not unusual. What is unusual is that I was there to get all journalistically uppity all over the place with my camera (okay, well, actually her camera) and my audio recorder. (And this time I didn’t stop recording when the poetry started, like I did last time with the video footage…ah, technology…ugh.)

This was a project for my convergence reporting class. Here’s the result: a photo slideshow with audio. If I had it to do over again I’d change a great many things, but there were some happy accidents and I think it turned out okay for my first run at it.
