Options September 28, 2011: Itunes Radio + Chartsweep Karaoke Challenge

Listen to this show: | Add or read comments

Still in my playlist malaise! I refuse to pick songs. This week I let the fine DJs on various iTunes radio channels make the picks. You bring the smooth hits, I'll bring the path of traversal w/ complimentary meows. 
Don't know why I've never before remixed current rap and R&B hits, it's too much fun! 
I listen to part 1 of Hugo Keesing's chartsweep on headphones and sing along. I can kinda keep up, but when I listened, I mutter off key way more than I thought. 45 minutes of awful a capella renditions of sequential #1 hits. 
Final set of iTunes radio remixes. A mellower set. 

Listener comments!

Good morning Nat!
  Wed. 9/28/11 3:20am Nat:

Hey Fred! Thanks for listening.
  Wed. 9/28/11 3:23am Andrew:

Hi Nat & fred
just before I d/led the 1956-59 cut up mps off the WMFU blog, haven't listened yet. Are they like this? I like the crazy sound ^_^
  Wed. 9/28/11 3:27am Nat:

Hi Andrew, I use cutups like those in this show, but they're much more straightforward and not improvised. I'll be singing 45 minutes of Hugo Keesing's chartsweep a capella later in tonight's program though! It will be awful.
  Wed. 9/28/11 3:28am Andrew:

UFO just took my radio
  Wed. 9/28/11 3:30am fred:

I hope I'll be able to catch this, but if I'm not I'll hit the archives later. (I miss Kenny G)
  Wed. 9/28/11 3:37am Nat:

Yes, I'm definitely indebted to Kenny G's karaoke marathons for that idea.
  Wed. 9/28/11 3:42am Andrew:

I'll have to go in bout half an hour, (got trivia on) and there's a storm comin. Sucks cos i will miss this!
I like it so far.

the cat meows are funny/weird, cos I have 2 cats & sometimes wonder if it's them...

I like your style too ^_^
  Wed. 9/28/11 3:46am Andrew:

this must be what it's like to fall through the sky if your ears could pick up radio waves
  Wed. 9/28/11 3:54am Andrew:

hehe, that auto-tune bit reminded me of the south park episode that was shown last night, with um...some rapper...Kanye yeh, and the joke about fish sticks
  Wed. 9/28/11 3:56am Nat:

mmmmmm....fish sticks...
  Wed. 9/28/11 4:03am Heath Badger:

Nat man I knew you were playing as soon as I switched on my media player. The sounds suit our chaotic weather. Hope all is well.
  Wed. 9/28/11 4:04am Nat:

  Wed. 9/28/11 5:10am fred:

Nat, I first heard Hugo Keesing's charsweep on Kenny G's show. I might even have unwittingly suggested it on the late forum
  Wed. 9/28/11 5:13am abby in france:

Bonjour Pierre, Nat, bonjour fred, bonjour Marmelade Kitty, andrew, everyone. That was amazing Nat. It really makes me concentrate on my work.

  Mon. 10/3/11 3:04pm bennett:

Hi, Nat, I'm a dj on killradio.org in Los Angeles. I was listening to you live last week and was made utterly joyous by your program, down to the Pat Boone tune. Just marvelous! I actually played it into my own show this week on kill. It's not posted yet, but it will be. And thank you so much for musical dadaism that works.
  Mon. 10/10/11 10:42pm mrshmetel:

Your singing is very disorienting and caused me to not be able to think straight. I had to pause the player just now because I found it impossible to concentrate on typing this comment.
