Why Are You a Vegetarian?

Posted: January 19th, 2010 | Author: Barry | Filed under: Uncategorized | 1 Comment »

People sometimes ask me why I’m a vegetarian. “Is it for ethical reasons or for health reasons?” My new response to this question is, “Why do you eat meat? Is it because you want to be cruel to animals or because you don’t give a shit about your health?”

It usually shuts them up and it’s more fun than saying fuck you.

Zen and the Art of Your Organ

There’s an old zen saying: “If something is boring after two minutes, try it for four. If still boring, try it for eight. If it’s still boring, it must be on YouTube.”


Floyd Pink and the O.K. Chorale

Posted: October 28th, 2009 | Author: Barry | Filed under: Uncategorized | 7 Comments »

Back in the mid-80’s, a little 45 EP wandered its way into KGNU. It was by Floyd Pink and the O.K. Chorale. It featured low-fi country twang songs with a very dry wit. Frankly, hilarious. It was an instant hit on KGNU.

Being a 7″ piece of vinyl, it was prone, like all others, to fall through the many cracks at KGNU. Years later, I went looking for it. No luck. For 10 years, I would occasionally scan the large rack of 7″ vinyl to see if it resurfaced. In the 90’s and 00’s, I started searching the world wide interwebs, assuming that someone would have posted this little gem. Not only no luck, but nary a mention of the group’s existence at all.

One day earlier this year, I was on the air for my Friday afternoon show and noticed one of the Honky Tonk DJ’s getting ready for her show. I said Hi. She said Hi. Later, as I walked out of the air studio to go back into the main CD library, I saw something sitting in the middle of the floor in the hall. It was Floyd Pink staring up at me as though no time had passed. Turns out Celeste, the Honky Tonk DJ, found it in the country stacks and accidentally dropped it in the hall. My heart raced as I dropped the needle on this lost gem and introduced it to my listeners.

Here now, for your listening pleasure, is Floyd Pink and the O.K. Chorale.

Jello Biafra and Mano Negra

I don’t know how I missed this when it appeared a few years ago. Dead Kennedys’ Jello Biafra sings with Mano Negra (Manu Chao’s original group) playing I Fought the Law and Mano Negra’s song Sidi’H'Bibi live in Brazil. These people know how to throw a party!
