We started this show with some electro-industrial tracks. OT talked a bit about the previous night’s Club Nevermore (spoiler: it was a success!), then we went into a noise rock and no wave set. That was followed up with a deathrock and post-punk set. Then we had an experimental and noise set themed around black holes in honor of the recently released photos showing the event horizon of a black hole. The midnight block was a trip into the death industrial mortuary, and we closed with a block of bright ambient.

This was our Women’s History Month episode, playing artists who are women or groups fronted by women—which was delayed by our brief hiatus back in March. We started with some industrial tracks. Then we were joined in the studio by Gary of Club Nevermore, Arkansas’s brand-new goth-industrial club night which debuts on April 13 (this coming Saturday) to talk about it, and played two blocks of post-punk, dark punk, and deathrock in honor of that. That was followed by a block of minimal wave/synthpop; a block of heavy industrial, power noise, and power electronics. Then we closed with a block of ambient tracks.

Our longtime listener and friend Molly from Northern California joined us in the studio for one of the funnest and longest episodes of the show to date. We started with a set of EBM and industrial, then there was a block of industrial metal. We followed that with a set of music by artists that will be playing in Hot Springs at this year’s Valley of the Vapors Independent Music Festival. We played a set of music from albums that were recorded or released in 1977 to celebrate our 77th episode. Then we had a set of noise, and an excerpt from a long Coil track. We then had an hour of overtime, in which we heard Krautrock/kosmische, a bit of Anatolian rock, Russian post-punk, and noise rock and ambient.

We began this show with some EBM and Belgian New Beat tracks. Then we had a “darkwave and whatever” block. We followed that with a tribute to the late Andy Anderson, and a block of psychedelic noise rock and a spacey-prog rock track featuring Andy Anderson. Then we had a block of crunchy lo-fi industrial, and we closed with a set of dark ambient and ambient drone.
