Radio Woodshed....Another Reason The Internet Was Invented


The internet denizen formerly known as the 'Reverend Paperboy', Mr. Kevin Wood, is a jack of all digital trades who is always up to something interesting.

In fact, I think it is safe to say that the most fun I've ever had over the Skypemobile was when the Rev. interviewed me about RailGate back in the days when the trial was still in front of us and he was still staining his wretched fingers, furiously, in Japan.


Kevin is now back in Canada throwing the ink around by day for money and making people like me happy at night and on weekends as a hobby.

And he's added a very simple widget to his Blog that lets you listen to his vast music collection, curated.

It's really fantastic.

I play it low in the background, especially when I'm working, even in the culture room in the lab, and need to concentrate without the bleatings of radio station screamers or trivializers.

Just go here and let the thing load.

Need further inducement?

Here's what I listened to Sunday morning after Public Eye Radio, which has neither screamers nor trivializers, while I was writing the 'Willcocks/Paterson in Honduras' post...

Supersuckers - Hungover Together
Sarah Harmer - You Were Here
Tom Waits - Emotional Weather Report
Various - Sarah Vaughan / Misty
Steve Martin - You Naive Americans
Alan Parsons Project - Too Close To The Sun
Arlo Guthrie - A Poster With Janis Joplin
The Raconteurs - You Don't Understand Me
Roy Buchanan - Please Don't Turn Me Away

Now, go listen to the Rev/Kev!

Unfortunately the pods that the Rev made of our conversations are gone now, but you can kinda/sorta read about 'em, here....Gosh, am I morphing into a (very) minor archiver/gardener-type character in a William Gibson novel?
