Ham Radio 50 friends and well wishers

Soulhaits De La Saison, as they say in Canada. Or at the very least, they said it on a Canadian Christmas card I once saw somewhere.

My favorite Canuck, Keith McNally, asked me to introduce a song for his 50th episode of his most excellent podcast, Ham Radio. I picked “For Reverend Green” by Animal Collective and I talked about it some too.

‘Ho Boy, do I really sound like that?

Click away, well wishers.

Mr Josh Latta was born in 1853 to a family of tamed Pleistocenes. he was raised as a small child, entering into adulthood on the eve of his 7th birthday as was the tradition of the day. in 1867 he undertook a course in multi-reptile wrestling ending his career as 'croc-tussler' after an unfortunate shallow-river related accident cut short the life of a young crocodile. moving to rural Sheboigan in the fall of 1872, he made a good living raising fancy roosters and painting murals across the town depicting the various lascivious secrets of the townsfolk. driven out of town in the spring of 1873 he found his way to Utah where he was Flaneur in Residence at the Foundation of Gentlemen and Cultured Guinea Pigs (now the Foundation of Water Fowl and Cultured Guinea Pigs) until a scandal involving twin milkmaids and a churn of cream called for his resignation. Latta entered into the history books in 1899 for his lifesize construction of Monument Valley in matches.

  1. Faith No More changed my life too! I guess. My 1s or maybe 2nd high school rock band tried to pull off Epic but it never worked out. I could play both the guitar and the keyboard but not both at the same time and there was no way our drummer was ever going to pull it off. I also like ass-oh-terrific music. I need to steal some Animal Collective. I think they are probably what Brian Wilson was hearing in his head during those years the couldn’t talk or go outside.
    But seriously, Faith No More were important. Once I heard them and Jane’s Addiction there was no going back to the way my brain had been previously configured.

  2. Yep, AC is pretty much all I listen to these days.
    I really think you’d like ’em. I totally get the Brian Wilson vibe as well.
    Ah yes, Faith No More appealed to those who were too scared of the heavy metal kids to get too into metal,I think.
    What do I know?
