Strange Wonderful

The Sweet and Sour Variety Hour, every Wednesday morning airs live to about 1.5 million human beings, a few billion notable sea creatures, and literally trillions of bacterium. Yes, every one of these living organisms will be surrounded with the invisible frequency transmission of these songs via terrestrial radio giant CHLY 101.7 FM at 8am PST on Wednesday.

The particular music which makes up this week’s signal-shower is very dear to me. Some of it is strange. Some of it is not. All of it is wonderful.

Special mention goes out to someone named Ashton Freeman, on whom I have fervently mortgaged my home in order to place irresponsible bets on their imminent musical success.
