Don-O's Hour Of Crap
(a tad over) an hour of god knows what
Episode 45: NegativLIVEland Vol. 1
April 21, 2016 05:18 PM PDT
I wasn’t planning on this until a couple of months down the road, but since the very recent passing of Negativland’s Richard Lyons, I figured I better do it now in honor of the guy….and I’m sure there will be more tributes for him within days of this.
I’ll blather later about how significant Lyons’ contributions to the group and to my nostalgia deconstruction adjustment later in my zine. I won’t do it here as the mic is still broke and….well, you know my monotone voice.
What you’ll hear is the first of a two part unofficial compilation of live recordings of Negativland from 1989 to 2000 and it has been taken from bootlegs, a couple of Over The Edge shows and two tracks of the brilliant 2001 CD reissue: Dick Vaughn’s Moribund Music Of The 70’s.
Note: I didn’t use any tracks from the ‘Live At The Oasis’ set as it is currently available through Phineas Narco’s Bandcamp account: https://nationalcynical.bandcamp.com/album/live-at-the-oasis-1993
Here are the track listings:
So long, Dick! Thanks for making 70’s nostalgia slightly more bearable,

Admittedly, I was too lazy to put much effort into this episode so it looks like it’ll be another slab of RANDOM-ASSNESS for the year of 2016! Dumped in here are Hunter S Thompson yelling and cursing at costumer service, John Waters giving a commencement speech, the first audiozine issue of Underground Culture Vulture from 1993, some left over business from the Las Vegas episode, best of a ‘best of’ a mammoth Sub-Genius Show compilations and a tad more.
Good damned luck,

So, how was your 2015? Mine was hijacked by two of my old obsessions; mix-tapes and Las Vegas and they both collided in a series called Las Vegas, Damnit!; 5 volumes of spoken word, music and other audio directly about this old Sin City.
Some of the artists and voices you’ll hear this best-of set will be Gene Pitney, Louie LaVega (courtesy of Strike’s Kitsch Nitch), Patton Oswalt, Lenny Bruce, Dean Martin, The Pleasure Barons, Wild Man Fischer, Las Vegas not giving a damn about its Centennial and, of course, old Frank!

Praise and blame, as per usual, to Mr. Fab at Music for Maniacs blog for kickstarting this project and additional contributions and to the city itself, damn you!
P. S.: I just posted the first 15 episodes of this series on Internet Archive at https://archive.org/details/HourOfCrap1stBatch . More of these episodes of questionable audio sides and my mumbling voice to come.Episode 42: WSDM circa 1/18/1974 (the Rock/Jazz years)
November 19, 2015 09:06 PM PST
The response to the last episode has been interesting, so I decided to aggravate it all by returning to WSDMland with this radio air check from 1974. At this point, the station was no longer MOR, but rock/jazz mode….hell, they even got rid of the comedy and news stuff and just focused on the music.
Your Den Pal for this clip is Penny Lane.
Enjoy the whatever-ness,
P. S.: For those of you who will miss the old school MOR flavor, we open the show with 40 seconds of ’beautiful music’ brought to you by PSA Airlines.Episode 40: Don Joyce Tribute
July 23, 2015 08:56 PM PDT
This accidental episode is a large overweight tribute to Don Joyce, a member of Negativland and the man behind the radio series Over The Edge for over 30 years.
If you have visited this podcast many times, you might get the sense of influence from the show and the man had on this and many similar shows scattered over the net and in radio. Despite the sad state of the format, Don Joyce was fervent about the use of radio for his art and the show….right up until the unfortunate end! THAT is a dedicated artist.
Anyways, in between my mumblings, there are large chucks of the show with Joyce’s voice and many of his characters, mainly Crosley Bendix. If this feels more slapped together than usual, blame the mountain of material Joyce has produced over the decades. There will be tributes to him and his work after this deal, so let see how they can climb Mt. Joyce
In the meantime, thanks Don for the fun and noise and say ‘Hi’ to Ian Allen and Phil Austin for all of us!
