Rocktober – Tricked Out Treat

A Halloween thrill costumed in a different genre… but first, a word from our sponsors about all your favorite Halloween songs by tonight’s featured artist –

 

“Thriller” 1930s jazz style –

 

 

Rocktober – Late Edition

It’s well into the month and I haven’t Rocktobered once. Things have been hectic here at the station…. nothing really wrong, just very busy. However, in the spirit of lateness, here is some late night music –

And now a word from our sponsors and totally random celebrities, including two notorious for keeping late nights –

 

And now an obscure import to comply with the 4 A.M. public affairs broadcasting regulations –

This concludes tonight’s Rocktobering. Late Night Sky Radio, signing off –

City Pop Radio

I posted a City Pop collection by Van Paugam a while back. If you liked it, he’s now got a streaming YouTube channel, City Pop Radio, described as –

Streaming City Pop classics 24/7! Come with us on an endless drive through the streets of Japan while listening to over 30 hours worth of the best City Pop records from the 80s. Travel back in time through the haze of memories that aren’t your own, and melodies frozen in a particular place in history.

It’s been running for almost 2 weeks now. There’s a live chat on the sidebar, if you want to discuss City Pop music or ask questions about it. The playlist is randomized and updated weekly. There’s also a donate link, if you like what you hear. The driving video is kind of neat to watch (no, not the cheeky pic in the thumbnail, a real vid), I’m not sure how long it runs before looping back to the start.

BTFO!

I have seen a lot of weird movies/comics/music videos/what-have-you. Stuff made on weapons-grade drugs. Grant Morrison’s Doom Patrol. Die Antwoord. The criminally terrible After Last Season. But I can honestly say that this has blown it out bigger and madder than almost anything I’ve ever seen before.

It’s so insane that the video can’t be played outside of its native YouTube.

I have NO idea what’s going on in the second sequence, but I want to see that movie. The guy on the plane like some kind of inverted hood ornament looks like it might be some kind of Flash-inspired thing. And the catapults….

Bollywood kills it. Hollywood isn’t producing anything anywhere near this imaginative and insane. Someone get these guys to Hollywood with an unlimited budget.

Walter Becker Of Steely Dan Dead At 67

Walter Becker, co-founder of the legendary band Steely Dan, died Sunday September 3, 2017.

Anyone who has read this site for more than five minutes knows how respected the Dan is around here.

His bandmate and collaborator Donald Fagen wrote a tribute, posted on Rolling Stone’s website. Read it here, or listen with brief commentary.

One awaits the inevitable “Steely Dead” tour.

They Shouldn’t Have Cut Those Music Classes

My wife: Do you not like Queen, or just “Don’t Stop Believin'”? (pause) or, is that…?

Me:  That’s Journey. I don’t know how you got those two mixed up.

My wife: I don’t either!
