Swan Song! New RT 6/8/15

Tonight was my final retrotransmission on rainydawg radio, and it was emotional for me. I hate goodbyes, so I wanted to end on a high note with a nonstop dance party, the kind where music blasts from a righteous sound system at top volume and people can’t get off the dance floor. Postpunk, pop, goth (I had to represent the goth stomp!), industrial dance, and electro kept it strong all night, and I sent retrotransmission off in style.  I hope to be broadcasting live from the radio again soon…stay tuned. But until then, keep checking this blog every Monday for new and vintage retrotransmission playlists!

 

 

Radio, Radio! New RT 6/1/15

 

For the second to last show EVER on rainydawg radio, I compiled punk, postpunk, rocknroll, and experimental tracks about the radio. Consider it a meta love letter to one of my favorite mediums. I’ve lived for broadcasting live on the radio and hope to get into it again when I’m back in NYC. What’s the ultimate radio tribute on this list? It’s hard to decide between the Ramones’ homage to the rocknroll radio of yore, The Modern Lovers’ ecstatic anthem about driving through your hometown blasting the car stereo, Velvet Underground’s sweet testament to music’s ability to be a life-altering savior or Joy Division’s hypnotic directive to dance, endlessly, to the radio…

Vintage RT: UK Post-Punk

 

RIP Ian Curtis…35 years ago (5/18/80). Enjoy this classic mix of UK post-punk to honor his memory and impact.
