  • Automatic Radio Ectoplasm Aired: Friday, February 9, 2018

    I was walking in London behind my camel when I realized the other way of stopping: all the candles in the world could not pull me into the light on the escalator of life, sayiing hello but waving goodbye. Only you would say that it wasn't that way at all: Kryptic Pop Thrills from 2/9/18.

  • Random Emergency Aired: Friday, February 2, 2018

    I had a white car in Germany, and I used it to go check out the checkout girl. When I got there, I realized she was just a ladytron, and she had a truncated vocabulary, including, "Wot," "Make it quick," "Promises, promises," and "Doubleplusgood." Even when watching their eyes with a one chord wonder's harmony in my head, these lady-bots tend to be tempermental, so I took drastic actions and got the hell out of there: Kryptic Pop Thrills from 2/2/18.
