From The Archive This months Archive title might be one the eldest of the bunch. Originally recorded in 2002, I took the liberty to re-edit this one for it's return into the list.

NEW FOR JULY 15, 2006 The mid-month podcast for July was in the can and awaiting upload when the sad news arrived that legendary rock icon and Pink Floyd founder Syd Barrett had died at the age of 60. This event struck a chord with me and the results are this July's mid-month new release. The previously intended title will have to wait until August 1, 2006. This podcast is a tribute to Syd Barrett. Even though of course there is some Pink Floyd music in the show, it is more of a tribute to Syd's vision. I like to think of it as traveling music for Syd's iPod as he makes the trek to the Gates of Dawn, or perhaps some gardening music for the great beyond as, in his recent past, gardening was one of Syd's few hobbies. In the end, you might find it an atypical Best Radio release, but it will likely have a place in your catalog. After you hear it once, it will become one of those shows you'll feel compelled to "pull off the shelf" for late night introspective journeys . . . 1. Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts 1-5) - Pink Floyd 2. See Emily Play - David Bowie 3. Astronomy Domine - Pink Floyd 4. I Had Too Much To Dream - The Electric Prunes 5. Exposure - Robert Fripp 6.

From The Archive Straight from the sublime to the ridiculous, I bring you this month's lighthearted back catalog episode.

Liberated from the vault. Please Return To Your Seats was recorded as I watched the 25th Anniversary broadcast documentary of the infamous Disco Demolition at Chicago's Comiskey Park in 1979. The title is derived from the hilarity of the text on the scoreboard urging about 10,000 maniacs to "please return to their seats" I was turned away from "Sox Park" about a block away by Chicago's Finest on horseback dressed in their classic baby powder blue riot gear that night. Baby blue has never looked so scary.
