Because I was also going to play "Heroes" today. I have some inside information about David Bowie that I was going to share on the air this morning. VERY big news. But sad. I will reveal all, later on this morning.

"Consume" reminds me: People I know of completely different (often mutually opposing) political stripes each project their own politics on that movie, but I'm the only one who sympathizes w the side the movie plays as the bad guys.

Occasionally my FMU stream will degrade to bursts of sound and silence every second or so, giving rhythmic impressions of whatever is being played. Until this moment I thought this was an impressionist DJ aesthetic that you hadl adopted.

@Rich in Wash: Yeah, that came out in 1974. I imagine very few people who were Babs fans in '74 knew Bowie's music and I expect many of them had never heard of him. God only knows what they made of the lyrics in that song.
