This stuff SUCKS

well, hmm...looks like I haven't posted since February 12. I've been meaning to. I swear.

This just a quick note, in preparation for some sort of longer post "soon".

Lately I've been announcing my email address at KSFR, where I do my weekly show called Inside Out, streaming from every Thursday from 1-3 Mountain Time. I've been hoping for listener feedback. I haven't gotten any for several weeks. Last week's show prompted this email with no text in the body, simply the subject:

This stuff SUCKS, man....very NON-musical.

the email (from a Los Alamos National Lab employee) was sent shortly after 2:30 pm, which I think was the segment where I included Ohnedaruth from the Art Ensemble recording Phase One, in its entirety. Admittedly, a stretch for many.

And this, my friends, is the *only* listener feedback I've gotten (outside of friends and family) after 6 weeks of repeatedly mentioning my email on the air.

Highly motivating!

how many times do we have to deal w/ rxns like this when we listen to "this" music? personally i'm at the point where i just don't play stuff for other people (unless they're really close friends). you of course are in a different & more important position, & if anything you should take this fellow's comment as an 'atta boy. maybe it IS "NON" music, if we can think of "non" as antagonistic, pushy, forward-thinking.

i don't listen to the show b/c i don't really do radio on the computer at this point, but i do love that aeoc record & i think you're fighting the good fight. head up.

Someone from a Los Alamos National Lab doesn't like what you're playing?

Keep up the good work!
