  • Mr. Hudson – Straight, No Chaser******
  • The Bravery – Stir the Blood

Well that’s it kiddies. I’ll be back in the fall with stories and British music up the wazoo. I’ll make my exit now before I go all sappy. Until the fall, listen to good music and don’t panic.

*If you click on each of the provided links, you’ll be watching videos for the first three tracks of Mika’s album The Boy Who Knew Too Much. Which I think should be everyone’s goal in life.
**With spiders!!! That will never fail to amuse me.

***Yes, that’s Kermit mouthing along to the song. And yes, that’s the entire reason I linked to it. Kermit is awesome.
****Same thing as with “We Are Golden” but out of order and the first four tracks except for the third cut because a) no video and b) don’t like the song at all. So yeah, exact same thing.
*****I ran over on my show and had to cut this song short. I’ve provided this link so you can listen to the whole song, which you should do because it’s a great song.
******Mr. Hudson is the one sitting. Or you could say Mr. Hudson is the one with bleach blonde hair. Either works, he’s still Mr. Hudson.

  • A celebrity chef and a guy who’s sampled human hair on album, are set to make a flute out of pig bones. I won’t be playing that and not just because I don’t play the flute.
  • Another week of the NME Top 10, another week of Calvin Harris topping said chart. Anyone who’s been on Never Mind the Buzzcocks is okay in my book, so it’s all good.
  • There’s a one out of five chance that Vampire Weekend will be coming to Mary Wash. However, if you’re in NYC there’s a one out of three chance of seeing them. Best be moving to NYC if you like Vampire Weekend.
  • NME comes out with a CD of their favourite songs from 2009. Unsurprisingly, no Kaiser Chiefs, Keane or Lily Allen. However lots of artists I haven’t heard of.
  • Ever wanted to ask Simon Cowell a question? Well if you’re in the UK you can. My question: Why does everything you touch turn to crap?
  • The Cribs announce a North American with Johnny Marr!! I won’t be here, but you should go and see the Cribs. With Johnny Marr!! It’s on a Tuesday, but still, Johnny Marr!
  • Paul McCartney turned down an opportunity to work with Ozzy Osbourne. No one was surprised, save Ozzy who had never listened to the kind of music Paul McCartney writes.
  • The best albums of the decade according to the NME. Per usual, we don’t see eye to eye.


  • Them Crooked Vultures – Them Crooked Vultures
  • Norah Jones – The Fall
  • Fall Out Boy – Believers Never Die: Greatest Hits

So that’s everything from the second to last show until next fall. Tune in on December 3rd for my greatest hits aka the last show until Fall 2010 (!!!). Until then, listen to great music and don’t panic. And go to the radio station’s 80’s dance party.

*There use to be on YouTube a great video for this song that made Lily Allen look like a cat that had been transformed into a human. However, because the BBC is pooey, it’s been taken down. Sad face
**I’m not entirely sure if this a legit video for this song, but it looks like it could be a legit video, so yeah. Here’s hoping it’s not a crappy fan video.
***I could have tortured all of you. I’m quite capable of it. But since I already kind of know what songs I’m playing for my last show, I decided against it.
****This is just the audio. It’s a fun little song, so you should listen. And no scary pictures of people starring at you (I hate those kind of videos, they always weird me out, no matter how much I like the face starring at me. It’s just weird.)
