After a confusing, and scary 70f November December, and January. We got a good old fashioned life threatening blizzard once more. That is “once more” before I kick the bleeping bucket. Yep the Angels answered by deranged prayer, and gave us a Humdinger! Of course I was out in the teeth of it like the snow fan I am. Had the time of my life!
Couldn’t see 20 feet in front of me. Was even caught in a true “White-Out!” I saw what looked like a spinning wall of white coming up the block. For a second I thought, “I better move or my goose is cooked!’ ‘But just for a second.
I stayed put, and was caught for several amazing seconds in a world of snow, and ice. It was like they say. “You’re in the middle of a glass snow globe” ‘…and I was! However as all good things it petered out about mid-night. Still what a time we had. Over 30 inches at JFK. 27” in my hood close to that all over the place. I went out a few times during the day. In the morning with my pal Prof.”Bob the Bunny”, see below, the afternoon, and especially early evening. This during the height of the storm. That’s when I got ate up by that white-out.
Here’s another program from my swell archives…all 35 years of it. Hell it occurred to me I could play stuff from all that for years. Naw don’t worry I’ll keep to new stuff…mostly.
There will be new programs in February, I’m taking a break writing new material, and assorted stuff. So stay tuned for all that noise. For the next few episodes some swell jazz from the slush pile.
Anyway this is a nice one from February 8th 2013 more or less. I rant sing tell tales take calls, and complain. Btw our swell pal R.P. Martin calls up during the program. In the show we’d just had a blizzard, and were due for another…just like now. (…which is kinda why I picked it.) So listen in!
*( The 25th show is the post below. This is a re-run of #7. )
I was just listening to an old program from early in the fall. This about my being in assorted “Good Samaritan” fist fights rather late in life. Yeah kindly old “Uncle” used to beat the crap out’a butt-hole thugs for laffs.
Well not for “laffs’, but ya know.
I like the iconography of WW2 when thinking of this mayhem that entered my life. I really don’t like bullies. That’s all there is to it.
Anyway this program got a lot of comment at the time, and actually I like it. So here it is…again. New shows coming so stay tuned for them.
( Imagine 25! programs already. Plus assorted short subjects. )
Here are two tales very different, but with perhaps the same warning. The first is “The Map”. A bright gentle story,…at first. It’s in two parts with a very short musical space between. The second “Tribulations” maybe the closest I’ve come to writing a Horror story. I hope you enjoy them.
( Click Below to Listen. ) “Acid Tale”…originally recorded at WBAI 2011.
“The activities of mankind will leave evidence of our actions in the sediments and rocks for millions of years to come. An international scientific panel has decided that there is little doubt that we have now entered the Anthropocene.”
“The changes in the chemistry and composition of the sediment and atmosphere, the rate at which the world is losing wildlife will also be recorded in the fossil record. Many experts agree that we have now entered a sixth great extinction, with species being lost at a rate up to 100 times higher than would be if humans weren’t around.”
“We are leaving our mark upon the Earth.”

Well ain’t this jolly news. This, and the attack of 50ft robots from Disney, and assorted fretting by your Ol’ Uncle Sidney are on the menu for today. As I say on the program “…it’s too damned hot for January!”
We are well, and truly bleeped boys, and girls!
Btw as ya see there’s a deleted scenes file right under the main program. Seems I had an accidental Acid Trip. It’s a long fevered story.
