Psychotic Reactions w/ Pip
My friend Pip has been doing a weekly 60's garage show in Boston at WZBC (Boston College Radio) for years. I have a standing invite to guest on his show if I'm ever in the area. In the past we've done all instrumental shows, a Lux Interior Tribute (during his MONTH long lux/cramps tribute after Lux's passing), etc.
Doing a show with Pip is pretty crazy. There is always something going on, the phone rings when we're on the air, there's no 45 adapters (the first time I went to the station, we had to play cd's until we found some adapters stuck in the 10's of thousands of BC's 45's...I travel with my own inserts now!), etc etc.
Whenever I listen to these shows afterwards I'm always laughing...not sure why. Maybe because I'm just psyched to be back on the radio. More than likely it's because watching Pip DJ is amazing. He talks all the time about how the music is so amazing, that he forgets to cue up the next 45. Then, it's a mad dash to cue up the next 45, which barely happens as the previous 45 ends! Then repeat this process about 20 times!
Some of the 45's on this show are taken from this very blog, but there's some other stuff too that I've never blogged about.
enjoy! (or not)
There's nothing better than .... Radio!
