Play List - Monsters From The Id

August 13, 2003

I guest-hosted for Susan Brown's show Punk and Hardcore on August 12 (technically the 13th), 2003 from 3:30 AM to 6:00 PM. Co-hosting with me that day was Frank Mancuso, someone I used to go to concerts with back in the late '70s and early '80s and have recently started going to concerts with again.

I opened with the same song Ed Menje played at the opening of Monsters from the Id, the music show we did alternating with Susan's show, before we did 'Nuff Said! I tend to play four-song sets. I like a lot of music without talk, but I limit it to four songs because I also want people to be able to figure out which song is which. If I play it, I say it. I wish commercial radio did the same. Sometimes I think the only way to learn the artist of a song is off music video or internet radio, rather than broadcast music radio, which is ridiculous!

I also played the Sal Buscema interview taped at the November, 2002 Big Apple Comic Convention, dividing it into two parts. In the following list, the artist comes first then the song title and I skip a line between sets.

3 D Invisibles - Monster DJ
Nazareth - Razamanaz
The Replacements - I Hate Music
The Clash - Janie Jones

Lita Ford - Lady Killer
Anti-Nowhere League - Streets of London
The Dead Kennedys - Soup is Good Food
Richard Lloyd - Soldier Blue

Sal Buscema Interview - Part 1

Iggy Pop - Lust For Life
Sex Pistols - God Save the Queen

One advantage of doing radio in the middle of the night is the ability to play songs the FCC wouldn't let us play during the day because of "naughty words," providing it's done with a disclaimer, of course. So we did the following set, introducing it with a song that is legal even during the day.

Twisted Sister - You Can't Stop Rock & Roll
Pearl Jam - Not For You
Pearl Jam - Porch
Luna Chicks - This is Serious
Nine Inch Nails - Closer
Pearl Jam - Leash

Sonic Youth - Secret Youth
John Barry- James Bond Theme

Tearjerkers - Comic Book Hero
Sal Buscema Interview - Part 2

Sex Pistols - I'm Not Your Stepping Stone
The Sexy Magazines - Man O' Man
Bree Sharp - David Duchovny
Brian Dewan - The Letter

As Monsters From The Id winds down, the music is a little less hard so it blends in better with Wake Up Call, which begins at 6:00 AM.

Soundtrack to Hair - Easy to be Hard
Oingo Boingo - Nothing Bad Ever Happens
Phil Ochs - Love Me I'm a Liberal
