WRKC The Not-So-Hectic Eclectic Playlist 7/30/14

HOLY TECHNICAL ISSUES TODAY, BATMAN! It must have been the fnords. Or, uh, something. It's all good though. Kameron Hurley, author of the Bel Dame Apocrypha and the soon to arrive The Mirror Empire joined us during the first half hour of the show, and in spite of wonky computer issues, she hung in there with me and was a great guest.

We determined that it takes a special kind of self-help guru to wield a whip. And of course, we played some music...

Another fun day in the studio today with special guests author RJ Keller and the artistic director of the Pennsylvania Theater of the Performing Arts. Music, laughter, culture, and a very brief appearance by Dr. Ham toward the end of the show. A girl couldn't ask for a better day!

WRKC The Not-So-Hectic-Eclectic Playlist 7/16/14

So today's show was a friggin party! Minus the alcohol, and food. Although there was coffee. (In Reggie-land, there is always coffee.) I was able to do some killer on air interviews today with author Che Gilson, whose werewolf pit-fighter novel, Carmine Rojas: Dog Fight, will be available for pre-orders August 9 from all the usual internet venders. Later, Paul Shapera of the Steampunk Opera fame came for an interview. We thought that Canadian band Moxy Fruvous should do a reunion if only to perform a version of the Yam Salve Song, the only caveat being, of course, that my head might explode with an overload of awesome. Played a lot of Matthew Sweet today. A LOT. Because he has a kickstarter going to fund a new album.

Dr. Ham also stopped by to deliver Fred the Dishwashing Monkey's review of the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. I was relieved to discover that there was no poo-flinging in the film.

Okay, gang, here it is:
