Radio Free Hipster Ep. 140: Back Bacon Cheeseburger

There is some serious Canada up in this episode. And I wouldn't have it any other way.

Overall it's just a hodge-podge of what I've been listening to recently. I reckon you might be digging on the same, but hopefully there are enough differences to spice shit up.

Show Notes:

Intro: Baddd Spellah – "Radio Free Hipster Theme (feat. Beefy)"
What can I say? This is quite literally my jam.

Track 1: Wordburglar – "Pre-Show Routine" / "Croque Monsieur"
Probably the best intro skit ever.

Z's 1st interlude: "So that shit is… multiplied"
I can do maths.

Track 2: Dr. Awkward – "Different"
Doc dropped this one last week on his birthday.

Track 3: mc chris – "Older Crowd"
Don't know if mc hijacked these beats himself, but the production work on this track is excellent.

Track 4: pomDeter – "Finally Small Things"
I'm still not sure how this one ended up in my collection, but I'm glad it did.

Track 5: Helen Arney – "Last First Date"
At some point this turned into a set about fucked up relationships.

Track 6: Jimmy Klok – "My Name Is Wopbabaluba"
Case in point. #rihanna

Track 7: Producer Snafu – "Oh My Glob"
Yeah, this one would've gotten in the show based on the title alone, but lucky for you it's a kickass song.

Z's 2nd interlude: "A really nice piece of chip-step."
Which may or may not be an actual thing.

Track 8: Dethlehem – "Valley of the Blades" / Ghostbusters dialog
I hope you havent tired of hearing Dethlehem, because I have yet to tire of playing them!

Track 9: Optimus Rhyme – "Ping Pong Song (Remix)"
A repeat from episode 23.

Track 10: Dual Core – "Go Figure (feat. More Or Les, Ghettosocks and Timbuktu)"
Buy All the Things. Just do.

Track 11: Illbotz – "Throw Me an Eggroll"
I kinda can't believe this one hasn't been played before.

Z's final interlude: "On my way to Charlotte."

Track 12: Tribe One – "Nerd Cred"
"Autobiographical sci-fi/fantasy."

Only one more show until my annual two-part Halloween crap-tacular, so get them requests in now while you can. Not sure if the late-September ep. will be themed or not, but I'm more than happy to throw in whatever you wanna hear.

I'm really hoping to catch at least a few of you tonight at the World Famous Milestone in Charlotte. It's kinda my favorite dive.

I'm catching up with some old homies and, with a little luck, making some new ones. And I'll be thrilled to rock out with you regardless of which of these categories you fall into.

You Really Like Me!

While I will spare you a full-on Ric Flair-style epistle, I do ask that you bear with me for what I swear will be an isolated instance of flagrant self-congratulatory wankery BECAUSE I WON A SECOND GODDAMN PARSEC AWARD!

I'm not sure what it means that I now have two of these things – likely that there is simply a dearth of geeky music podcasts out there – but I am honored and pleased and still more than a little stunned by this development. The competition this year was particularly stiff, so I have to give a special nod to my brothers Joe and Marc, and of course I wanna thank all those that nominated RFH as well as Parsec Committee itself.

But mostly I want to thank my obsessive-compulsive disorder; I will sleep well knowing that this added bit of symmetry on my mantle will prevent the world from spiraling into utter chaos, and that's all because of you, old friend.
