Radio Free Hipster Ep. 87: Wonkerjawed

At the risk of sounding like a total douche-nozzle, I will call this the long-awaited new episode of Radio Free Hipster. Because it is. At least to me.

The April Podswap is always fun, but the process tends to play hell with my regular podcasting schedule. As a result, this ep. is a little late and I am a little rusty. Hopefully your good nature will provide me a bit of leeway with regard to both.

Show Notes:

Intro: Baddd Spellah – "Radio Free Hipster Theme (feat. Beefy)"
These lads are always on time.

Track 1: MC Frontalot – "A Little Bit Broad"
Zero Day is pretty phenomenal from start to finish, but this is an easy standout.

Z's 1st interlude: "Now that I've made my first scatological reference."
Because all good things start with a poop joke.

Track 2: Go Home Productions – "Virgin O'Riley"
A Who mash-up. You know how I do.

Track 3: I Fight Dragons – "Money (Klopfenpop Remix)"
"Money" was probably my least favorite track from the IFD debut, but I gotta give it up to Klopfenpop for this bomb-ass remix.

Track 4: Kirby Krackle – "On and On"
Wolverine gets more than his fair share of love from geek rockers, but this musical tribute actually has legs.

Track 5: Ash – "Kung Fu"
For my homeboy GeekDad Curtis, who is a big fan of the Northern Irish alterna-rockers.

Track 6: Norrin Radd – "Proton Decay"
Chiptune death metal. Fuck. Yeah.

Track 7: Sinister Six – "On the Black or White Hunt (MasDaMind's Michael Jackson Mashup)"
The Negative Zone Remix album is a fine addition to any collection.

Z's 2nd interlude: "Loose and funky… like a well-worn gym sock."
I had a pretty bad cold while I was recording this episode. This is around the time when my meds kicked in. The more you know!

Track 8: Scrubs dialog / Kevin Figs – "BedRock (Rock Remix)"
Kevin makes rock remixes of radio rap joints. They are awesome. Listen to them.

Track 9: mc chris – "Twin Peaks"
mc's April Fools release for this year. It also includes a Ghostbusters reference.

Track 10: Teleidofusion – "Soft Illusion" / Listener request voicemail
I highly approve of listener requests. Especially for amazing chip rock tracks.

Track 11: Parry Gripp – "Young Girl Talking About Herself"
Parry gives away a free song a week. You should download them.

Track 12: Insane Ian – "(Love Theme From) Asteroids (The Motion Picture)"
Herein Ian channels both Aerosmith and Parker/Stone. In equal measure.

Track 13: BC – "Raptor Song"
"I'm a dinosaurus."

Z's final interlude: "Another nerd pride anthem from the good Doctor."
I can't say enough good things about Doc Awk. But I will never stop trying.

Track 14: Dr. Awkward – "DualShAwks" / Klopfenpop voicemail
Big ups to Klopfenpop for the lyrical love note. Even if he was a tad drunk.

I've been gauging audience interest in another Wil Wheaton PAX keynote mixtape, and folks seem to dig the idea. I'm'a try to work that one out for late May.

The next episode, however, will likely be another theme-free affair. I've gotten a ton of fantastic new albums over the past few weeks, and I couldn't possibly fit all of them into this show.

Requests and voicemails are, as always, highly encouraged.

Man, I'm hearing Kirby Krackle everywhere these days. Not that I'm complaining - "E for Everyone" is a great album

Z. said...

Too true, Dave. It's still in heavy rotation over here.

One of the best episodes of the Podcast, bar none.

Thank you for playing my favorite track from Zero Day!'

Z. said...

Thanks for the love, Data. And that one's an album highlight for me too!

Lovin' it!

Z. said...

Thanks, Anarchangel. I hope the rest of this summer's offerings suit. :)

It's all killer, no filler so far!

You're too kind!
