Yes, I switched the @kfaiFMradio Studio 1 thermostat from "COOL" to "HEAT" - what could possibly go wrong

 Slept a little late (I wonder why!) but I should manage to squeeze in two shows taped before 3 - KFAI Fresh Air Radio (Minneapolis, MN)

BREAKING: As my upcoming "retirement from funemployment" begins, I have been gifted with SIX hours of LIVE radio broadcast time on KFAI! Please make requests and tune in promptly between 00:00 and 06:00 CDT TOMORROW (Friday morning aka Thursday night!) Thanks to Eric and Tom for the opportunities to sub host and thanks to KFAI in general for giving me an outlet to help keep me sane when I was at my most insane. (The music should still be pretty insane, however...)

I played more records and coughed all over the Studio 1 mic and here's proof

 Running behind but gonna tape two and get it before 4! - KFAI Fresh Air Radio (Minneapolis, MN)

@funkomatic @DollarBinShow Haha I was close; it was actually on "Rave 'til Dawn"
19.9 17:42 
@funkomatic @DollarBinShow I feel like the track definitely made some "Strictly for the Headstrong" type techno compilation CDs back in the day - heck I probably have it in the basement somewhere
12.9 14:23 
@funkomatic @DollarBinShow I snuck that one onto Cruise Control once! Somehow I picked that LP up at a Down In The Valley a couple years ago (something on the cover must have spoken to me) and I guess they were huge in Santa Cruz for a while

Guys ONE YEAR AGO TODAY I did my first live on air fill-in for KFAI filling in on The Pop Shop! It was the 50th anniversary of the first Apple Records releases so I played all eight sides. I also commemorated the 25th anniversary of "The Late Show with David Letterman" with THEIR first musical guest that night - yes, I snuck Billy Joel onto KFAI the first chance I got. In the past year, I've done, like, 60 hours of live radio - plus 33 or 34 episodes of Dollar Bin. Anyway, here's the stream from one year ago - don't tell anybody I'm still sharing it with you (but if you want more of my "air checks," lemme know on the down low)
21.8 17:43 
As Sean might say, "[new] Kadavar, Electric Wizard, Ex Eye, Kylesa, Nightosaur, [new] King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Goatess, Psalm Zero, Kyuss, Opeth and more!" except he'd probably never have a playlist QUITE like this. Still, a fun show and it's reassuring to know I can draw about the same numbers at 2pm that I usually do at wait
21.8 13:56 
On the air in five minutes!

People may actually be listening in 10 minutes! - KFAI Fresh Air Radio (Minneapolis, MN)

CRZ ON THE RADIO ALERT: Tomorrow I'll be hotshot filling in for Seanny Boy on Glorth Radio on KFAI from 1400 CDT! How much I deviate from the formula is entirely up to my ability to quickly acquire ALL THE SLUDGE ROCK IN THE WORLD overnight.

And if somehow you missed the entire thing, catch it via the KFAI Community Radio APP (search "Dollar Bin") OR visit Thanks for enduring this twitstorm and I'll be back next Tuesday with a new show and no more than one tweet @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing

This was definitely my longest show, but if I'd not played the Thelma Houston it might have been perfect - but we HAD to hear it @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8 13:14 
Mason once asked me to try to keep it around 57 minutes so he could plug schedule gaps with it as needed - I believe I have kept it near that mark exactly three times. @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8 13:12 
I think we made it! Sorry, @kfaiFMradio, I'm pretty sure this is a one time thing. But this is my last chance to get you to and thank you for all your support of me, @DollarBinShow and KFAI!! #keepitgoing #weoutright
6.8 13:11 
Well, NOW she's saying she's gonna leave this man - which seems in complete conflict with the title of this song. Maybe they DO need to get outta here @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing #youwontmissyourwatertilyourwellrunday
6.8 13:08 
This is some of that "everything and the kitchen sink" technique Jam and Lewis managed to cut back on in later years - oh, God, though....the "ladies" - yeah, call 'em out, Thelma @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8 13:04 
Thelma Houston didn't release an album for six years after this one. Jam and Lewis, meanwhile, hooked up with Janet Jackson and some may remember the results @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8 13:03 
We're already over but I wanted to include a Flyte Time production - I'm fascinated by how their process evolved during the S.O.S. Band/Cherelle years. Mason introduced me to Change. This one was kinda "lost" and maybe for good reason @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing

RT @kfaiplaylist: “I'd Rather Spend The Bad Times With You Than Spend The Good Times With Someone New (Extended Dance Version)” by Thelma Houston. Dollar Bin at 1:01pm. @Thelma_Houston @DollarBinShow

Hmm, you think Lorenzo would say something about his vocal turn or plug the show if I paid him $25? @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8 13:00 
Mostly I played that one for my two most regular listeners, @skiforthree and @funkomatic, who are also fabulous supporters of KFAI - as you should be! @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8 12:59 
I found this 12" for 25¢ at Fly Vintage & Vinyl (shoutout to @Humours and @Copyapolis) where I believe it came from a DJ pool collection - best quarter I've ever spent on an acquisition? Perhaps! @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8 12:57 
Somehow due to label and/or licensing issues, the "Body Talk" soundtrack does NOT contain this OR the other Lorenzo Lamas....performance. Scotti Bros. put out this single to remedy that. It did not chart. @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8 12:55 
RT @kfaiplaylist: “Smooth Talker” by Lorenzo Lamas. Dollar Bin at 12:55pm. @lorenzolamas @DollarBinShow
6.8 12:54 
I really tease out the next selection, but the wait is well worth it... @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8 12:53 
Originally I was thinking I'd host a KFAI Vinyl Voices night where I'd sell any record I'd played for two bucks and use all the proceeds to buy MORE records. Somehow my house is full despite that plan coming to fruition @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8 12:50 
I buy records at a lot of places but the inspiration for the show came while I was at The Landfill in St. Paul, where all the Cheapo overstock goes to die and they have a zillion 12" singles (and also several zillion LPs) AND everything's 6/$5. @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8 12:48 
Ah, Adiche - as I often say (because it's all I got) look him up and all you get is this 12" single. I bought it because it was on Newcleus' label and also shared some publishing credits so I figured you could probably breakdance to it. I was right! @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8 12:47 
RT @kfaiplaylist: “Chuka-Ja (Get Ready)” by Adiche. Dollar Bin at 12:47pm. @DollarBinShow

The bass has been slapped by Bo Freeman. @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8 12:46 
The LP reveals some interesting credits for this song:
Lead Guitar – Phil Ketnar
Rhythm Guitar – Levi Seacer Jr.
Timbales – Harold "Butch" Haynes
Bill Summers might be best known for "Jam the Box" - this was a couple years after that.
@DollarBinShow #keepitgoi
6.8 12:42 
Speaking of vocoder and slap bass...this was another 12" single I knew nothing about but liked the title and track length and just went for it. Now I have Bill Summers out the yin yang on this hard drive @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
