Options Burn It Down! with Nate K.: Playlist from December 25, 2018 Options

Nate K.'s avatar View Nate K.'s profile Options

Music for the revolution in my head: choogling punks; power pop, both skinny-tied and long-haired; soul shouters and girl groups; bubblegum and acid rock; global fuzz; weirdos and outsiders, and the Weirdos and the Outsiders; Archie Shepp and J. Geils. Plus, live bands.

Hey, gang. Merry Christmas. We're looking at about 75 percent Christmas music tonight.

It was a sunny and green christmas here one state south of Michigan.

Iz 'e a Pop?

Nate! This show is my new fave on fmu. Starting off with my fave scene from my fave show Enlightened always makes me happy, and week after week you’ve been introducing total jams I’ve never heard before in all my years of faithful radio listening! Uptown Down by Melanie! That Spectrum song! Wow. Keep up the hits!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/25/18 9:14pm mb:

Merry Christmas to you, DJ Nate K.

Is it possible to play "Burn It Down" by The Suicide Commandos after each Christmas song to skew the percentage? Not a request i'm just wondering if its possible.

peace brothers and sisters - farm out!

The Psychic Ills are sick, sick, sick.

@MB, I'll try to bring it down to 65 percent, but I can't dupe the theme song.

Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas Nate. Burn it Down

If you end the show with Protomartyr's "Feast of Stephen" you could get a jump on all the feast of stephen themed shows tomorrow.

Err, St. Stephen's Day

Wouldn't it be 'you better not NOT scream' for a punk rock christmas?

A Quick One was the first rock opera, and probably the best!

Do they know it’s Christmas? Do the Russians love their children too?

Dead air again on 91.1FM?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/25/18 9:54pm Nate K.:

Anyone else getting dead air?

Now it’s back.

It was like there was a signal but no sound if that makes sense.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/25/18 9:54pm medson:

91.1 was out but just came back
  Tue. 12/25/18 9:57pm SM Ken:

Thanks All. Having audio circuit problems. Please let me know here if the audio drops out again at 91.1fm.

And now it’s gone again.

Thanks. I just put the MP3 stream on at 91.1fm. It sounds worse but at least it will stay on until the T1 audio gets fixed.

@SMKen: Saint Kludge! But it works.

If I lose anyone on this Cheap Trick tune, I completely understand.

this is making me feel some type of way

I like how seamlessly they worked the christploitation into the existing song ;)

I’ve had enough wine that I am fine with this.

i'm so far unable to find anything Roger (Clark) Miller has done that isn't great
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/25/18 11:21pm ultradamno:

I met him at Repeat Performance when Birdsongs played No Bar, he's a nice guy to boot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/25/18 11:27pm Nate K.:

Joe, agreed. Sproton Layer = great, too. Not Roger Miller, but Burma-related, I've always liked the Consonant record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/25/18 11:36pm Greg from ZONE 5:

Thanks for playing me home, man!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/25/18 11:45pm Nate K.:
