The House of Sarcasm #39 – Crying in the Rain in My Dirty Denim Jeans

It’s a rainy Friday and we’re back from spring break. Sadly, KPSU is still having technical problems. Shows are not being recorded at this time, so if you click the “download” link below, it will just send you in a frustrating circle going nowhere (don’t bother trying!). But hey, since when did a radio show have to be recorded? Isn’t the nature of radio to be fleeting, something that you enjoy in the moment and then it’s gone? Well, sure, but of course KPSU isn’t really a “radio” station on the actual airwaves.

The IT people are working on it and things should be fixed soon.

All of the songs I played today are on Bandcamp, so you could always go there and try to recreate the playlist, though you won’t have the joy of hearing my voice. Sorry!

Here are the events I mentioned on today’s show:


Copycat Night w/ DJ Xerox, Batmoth, Shriekers, Counterfeit Cash – Apr. 5 at Turn Turn Turn

The Breach / No Red Flags / Velvet Merkin – Apr. 5 at Gil’s Speakeasy
