Realer Than The Realest Thing Ever

realRealer Than The Realest Thing Ever
(Wherein I make a valiant attempt to keep things “real”.  Originally broadcast in 13 August 2011 on KPSU.)

From the moment I first started assembling the original Philosophy Rock episode (The Truth Is Marching In), I knew I wanted to do sequels to this show.  There is so much music that is outside of the usual “I love you / I’m sad about you” range of pop music, and there are a number of artists that really love to embrace the deeper meanings in the world.  As a armchair philosopher myself, this is a perfect match.

In this episode, I focus on The Real, The Fake, and everything in between.  I had a lot of fun combing through lectures on Youtube.com, and I found enough material for at least two more shows.  I’m pretty proud of this one, but I do recommend that you listen on headphones.  This is one to pay attention to.

Enjoy.  See you in seven.

Eh? What? Punk? Never Heard Of It.

The Grumpy Punk
(In which I wax nostalgic with a lot of new and old “punk” songs, and the censor beep goes off far too often.  Originally broadcast on 30 August 2009.)

Playlist & Footnotes: http://anywhereanywhen.com/2015/08/11/the-grumpy-punk

Another extended block of radio yesterday, and this time filled with more music, “Like they usta make.” Ob-soive:

I like the fact that it took me two shows before I was actually able to get back on track with the schedule I had written for myself only a few weeks ago. Yeah, like I said, “tentative.” Hopefully, we’ll be on track until the end of the years.

Fingers crossed.

See ya in seven.

Based largely on a Negativland recording, and a mix CD I made for a friend of mine years ago, I present a time-traveling epic that includes me from several points in the timestream, and lots of excellent music.  Enjoy!
