Today: Junk Drawer
I'm writing this at 5:45 pm Sunday evening. I've spent nearly my entire weekend - no kidding - putting together what I thought would be an easy "Odds & Ends" show, consisting of the following:
  • David Newgarden & Me, circa 1988
  • Steve Shelley & Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth discusses The Nihilistics, circa 1989
  • Quentin Crisp Interview, circa 1988
  • Galliano Bottle Conversation, circa 1987
  • Kaz & Me in NYC, Oct. 24, 2006
  • Kaz & Me go to the Hollywood Halloween Parade, Oct. 31, 2009
  • Seven Minutes In September Song
  • Chris T. Fucks With Telemarketers
  • Vintage Wire Recorder Excerpt, Unknown Family, circa late 1950's
  • Slim Fast Revolution Commercial
  • Dennis Quaid Voicemail
  • Aerial View Side Effects
The reason for the "Junk Drawer" show? I've been out of action with a bad cold since last Tuesday and I thought a bits & pieces show would be easier to produce than recording something new. Joke's on me. Gathering, editing and mixing all the audio that went into this podcast took hours. This newsletter took yet more hours. Friends, this is getting to be too much.
I know I've said in this newsletter that I'd like to get to my 30th WFMU anniversary (July 4, 2016) and walk away but I really don't know how many more weekends I can sacrifice for what is beginning to feel like a vanity project. You've heard this lament before but I have no idea how many of you actually listen to this podcast. I know this newsletter is opened by 15% to 25% of the 436 people it goes to every week. Not being on the air at WFMU has changed my whole perception of what it means to have an audience and to have interaction with that audience. 

At this rate, it doesn't appear that I will ever be back on the air at WFMU. I have another foot surgery scheduled for late April, which means I'll miss the next schedule change. I can't say what will happen beyond that but this podcast is beginning to feel like a great deal of work that goes into a void.

What I'm trying to say is that Aerial View is likely in its final days. Allow me to apologize to all of you who are listening and who do enjoy the show. My plan as of now is to make it through the Marathon, so we have a few months together anyhow.
That's my car under there...

Upcoming Events

I sit down with the guy who brought me to WFMU, Kaz, to conduct a Q & A all about his new career retrospective, the Fantagraphics book Kaz: From Hoboken To Hollywood. Join us at the Word Bookstore in Jersey City. This discussion will become an Aerial View show, so come on out!

What? I don't see a single comment on Chris T's show from yesterday.
If true, this is an insult to a guy who has contributed tons of great listening over many years. If, not true, my access to the comments has been frustrated by the stupid new website and coded sign in crap they are now foisting upon well-meaning fans like me.
Still trying to follow your new format, Chris. I hope you will get back to live calls and interviews someday because that is your gift!
