G'day Brian & Friends!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12am Brian D:

Hey Scotty! All.
Avatar 🗒 3:25am Don in Tampere:

Good morning again from Finland! Not Germany as planned due to the current Covid wave, unfortunately. Has Covidiocy stayed at the same level in the US? Seems to be a pretty constant and small but significant minority in Europe, substantially larger in former East Germany.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28am Brian D:

Hello Don. Covidiocy reigns supreme, I'm afraid. But our head of state is too old to go out clubbing.
Avatar 🗒 3:36am Don in Tampere:

Age does bring some advantages.....

Brian thanks for playing Thurston's entire track.

Best little drummer boy ever.

Good morning Brian and all.
As for what I'm reading, I just finished the latest issue of Conjunctions, and I'll read the latest Ploughshares next. Not exactly books, but those "magazines" do look like books
Avatar 🗒 4:49am Don in Tampere:

Thanks for the link Brian; this is a really interesting article.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52am Brian D:

Nothing wrong with that reading material @Fred. Been meaning to start reading Ploughshares.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:01am fred:

Ploughshares is quite varied: each year there's a long form issue, one short form, and two that feature prose and poetry. Throw in the guest editors and each issue has its own vibe
  5:24am Cooh John:

Forced into work today. Catching some of the show is a benefit, Brian. Great stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25am Brian D:

Thank you @Cooh. Sorry you have to work.
  5:29am Cooh John:

Life is a paradox. It always has pluses and minuses. 😏 Good morning, Scott67.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:38am Brian in UK:

Hello Brian & music heads.

Just finished Willy Vlautin's Don't Skip Out On Me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41am Brian D:

Good morning @Brian. The multi-talented Mr. Vlautin. Any good?
  5:47am Cooh John:

What if everyone was transparent?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49am Brian D:

If only...
  5:50am Elizabeth:

good morning from central Mexico ... Pharaoh Sanders is a nice vibe to wake up to!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50am happymaan:

Hey Brian, just wanted to say thanks.I've been enjoying this show at work. Happy holidays to you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50am Brian D:

Thanks Happy, you as well, and good morning, Elizabeth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58am Brian D:

Thank you all for joining me today. Merry/Happy Christmas/Holidays and stay safe.

Brian, yes his writing flows, a sad story but no surprise there, would recommend it.

Morning Carol, everyone πŸ™‚

fell asleep with the radio on... woke up to this beautiful show which helped ease me through my insomnia hours... THANKS! came back today to look up some of the artists... etc
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm McGroovey:

The Parquet Courts song reminds me of something from the eighties. Kinda Echo & the Bunnymen, but also something else.

Screensaver reminds me of eighties Wire.

I want to see Nick Cave live someday, but I don't want to spend the $gazillion ticket price
