      No, music fans, there isn't a problem with your Web connection -- it's just that many Internet radio stations are deliberately offline today. More...

      52: You Speak In Volumes

      After a very unfortunate technical difficulty with the USB microphone I use that made me sound a lot like Marcel Marceau, the issue has been resolved. Turns out that a piece of software installed during the week wrecked the drivers for the mike. Once I uninstalled the software, all was well. And it's a good thing too, since I don't know if I could have kept this show in me for another twenty-four hours.

      The Soul of John Black "The Hole" (from The Good Girl Blues, 2007)

      Total Time—37:26


      Show #52 will be late. I just finished recording it and something went very wonky. The mike was dead throughout and so nothing was picked up. And since it's almost 1am here on the east coast, I'll just call it a night and re-record it all in the morning.

      My sincere apologies for the delay.

      Of course, this means that you could still call in an audio comment for the show at 206-338-5792.

      51: Layers and Layers

      This episode was rife with technical problems that forced me to re-record three times tonight, hence the lateness of the hour. But it's worth the wait. The new Mooney Suzuki track is simply fantastic and, if this one and "99%" are representative of the new CD, it's going to be one great friggin' album.

      Dime No. 51: Layers and Layers

      Frank Black "Robert Onion" (from 93-03, available June 19, 2007)
      Zombies of the Stratosphere "The Well-Mannered Look" (from The Well-Mannered Look, 2007)
      The Mooney Suzuki "Good Ol' Alcohol" (from Have Mercy, available June 19, 2007)

        50: I Wish I Was Young Again

        Sorry this was a whole lot later than usual, but after last week's show I managed to get myself really sick. The voice is almost back to normal, maybe still a bit scratchy. Nothing particularly special in the fiftieth show. The John Hoskinson CD Pancho Fantastico is out on Tuesday and everyone should pick this one up. I may even like this more than last year's Miscellaneous Heathen (and I loved that one).

        Dime No. 50: I Wish I Was Young Again

        Steve Robinson "Forget About Love"
        The Krinkles "Sweet On You" (from 3: The Mordorlorff Collection, 2007)

        The Grey Race "Care Of Cell 44" (from The Grey Race EP, available June 12, 2007)
        Wensday "Only Women Bleed" (from Torch Rock, 2007)
        Charlotte Kendrick "Off The Tracks" (from North of New York, available June 26, 2007)

        49: In The Deep End For The Weekend

        I tweaked the levels in tonight's show slightly. Hopefully it helps. I've had a very scratchy throat all day, and it seems to be getting worse (I suspect that I'm coming down with something), so I tried to keep the talkie stuff to a minimum. I'd really hate to get sick this close to #50...
