(R) Silkworm -- scruffy tumor -- even a blind chicken finds a kernel
Silkworm -- penalty box -- it'll be cool (RIP Michael Dahlquist)
No Trend -- teen love -- 12" ep

Notes --
Silkworm's impressive drummer, Michael Dahlquist -- had been kiled by a deranged, suicidal woman who ran her car into him. He, along with two other Chicago musicians while on lunch break from thier place of employment. A shame. WPRB's Jon Solomon, did a really fitting tribute to him and Silkworm this past week. They put out some material on Jon's label -- My Pal God - and I'm sure, as he had been living in Chicago for quite some time, it hit home. I offer my condolences to many in the loss of this man.
Silkworm were a band that brings back a lot of good memories for me. And I'm sure many attest to that. The two songs were dedicated in memory of Michael Dahlquist. My only wish is that I could have played my favorite Silkworm tune, "Couldn't you Wait?"
That will have to wait for a future program.

-- we started playing some of our "classic faves" on this show. As my brother and I will be less frequent to WMUH in the upcoming months, we thought it would be good to play some of our favorite /quasi-regular rotation songs. We never like to overkill/overplay songs on our radio show -- thinking that our listeners prefer to share in the aural experience of an unexpected listen. But some songs deserve the extra attention. This week included No Trend, Green on Red and Charizma.

Back from Texas

Zach and I had a fun time in South Texas visiting family. It reached 100+ degrees everyday, but thanks to the dry nature of that region, it didn't seem so oppressive. However, a strong hurricane might just pass through that area very soon -- which would be perhaps the only one in that area since the early 1970s. Though they could use some rain, this could potentially be dangerous-- I hope it isn't.
Of course, we did manage to find some new goodies that were found in different towns and cities such as Corpus Christi, Kingsville (home of the famous King Ranch), Refugio, Victoria, El Campo. The Texas Coastal Bend and expansive flatland, big sky, brushy wilderness that helped a corrupt Lyndon B. Johnson take his first role as public official was the area that made for some excellent rock and roll, Mexican American Soul, and the oft-discussed Border Radio stations that NPR hosts seem to discuss a lot-- We will be spotlighting some of the aforementioned this week on the radio show.
So, please tune in if you can to WMUH this friday from Noon-2pm.
I also have to take time out and say that it will be a shame to lose our friend and fellow wmuh dj Tony ( ), who will be moving at the end of this week to start a new chapter as an educator at a University in North Carolina. A very warm, intelligent and genuine person; he has also continued to wow the both of us with his radio show -- which was the closest equivalent to an on-air dance party i can think of!
