April 5, 2007: Emergency fill-in for Trouble

Listen to this show: | Add or read comments

I got thrown into the DJ seat the moment I arrived (9 AM) at WFMU this morning, completely unprepared to do a radio show. No records picked out, no coffee in my system yet, no ideas for a good opening track. I scraped a few things together out of the new bin, grabbed a few compilation CDs, and entered the studio, where JM in the AM's Nachum Segal was impatiently board-sitting and waiting for me to relieve him of broadcast duties. Since Freeform programming always begins at 9 AM, Nachum knew to randomly select some non-JM in the AM music from the record library until someone arrived to take over for him.

This is the CD he was playing when I walked in:

Hanging out with Nachum while listening to NOFX at 9 AM = comedy gold.

That Les Traiteurs Asiatique track is soooooo good. I cannot find it or the band anywhere on the net. Help?

That CD is a hand-made CD-R that was sent to us by the band (and that's the only song on it...) There's no info on the packaging, but I'll check around and see if I can come up with anything for you...

You mean that when a free-form 9 a.m. DJ fails to appear, Nachum no longer plays various heinous over-exposed Motown oldies like the Supremes? Apparently, in the old days when John A. had a show at 9 a.m., he got stuck in traffic or something on his way there, and got so sick of hearing Nachum play stuff like the Supremes at 9 a.m. that he finally said, "OK, *please*, if I'm not right on time, just pull anything out of the library by SUN RA and play that. S-u-n, r-a. OK?"

If I had my way, I'd take Motown over NOFX any time. And I have a mohawk.
