Greetings, androids! I had an extra special time at the station this show, because I was accompanied by Cameron and James for a good portion of the evening! My favorite moment of the entire evening was when Cameron played Pokémon Red on my GBA SP, while James, Cameron, and I all made Pokémon noises overtop of it, and then I back-announced.

I want to repeat that many, many times. It also gave the idea to do a completely video game themed show, but this time I'm not half-joking: I want to play all video game music for 2-hours straight. This feeling was heightened while I was walking in the snow today listening to The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary CD that my friend lent to me.

Another major portion of this show was brought to you by steampunk music, such as Pepe Deluxé, Abney Park, and a cover of the Howl's Moving Castle theme by Sungha Jung. Steampunk music is something that I've been wanting to explore for awhile, since I have a pretty invested interest in the steampunk aesthetic.

For your viewing pleasure, here is an album trailer released by Pepe Deluxé:

Das ist musik:
  1. Pokémon: This is one of the best ideas I've ever had. I wish I had done it for a bit longer even. I also wish I would have used my Gameboy Color so I could utilize the headphone jack, but I'm pleased as punch to have video game music on my show anytime. 
  2. Pepe Deluxé: Thanks to Cameron, I found what will probably be one of my favorite CDs in the library very soon. 
  3. Crude furie: Not only did I get to play one of my favorite Handel arias for you all, but it was a recording by Maureen Forrester, and having the ability to play that at triple speed is why I'm at WCBN.
Was ist musik?:
  1. Haunted house layering: Not that this layering wasn't good in its own right, but as a dear listener pointed out, it sounded a lot like another layering that I have done in the past, and sounds a lot like a LOT of layerings I have done in the past, because, well...I really like scary sounds, horror movies, etc. 
  2. Lilith The Rock Opera: I really don't know what I was thinking. The only thing that saved it is that I layered it but...never again.
  3. Hot Troche: This...was not the appropriate music to layer with concert listings. 
Thanks for listening! Keep doing your listening thang!
