Not Just Your Doodie

Vote/Nominate Now!

As Steve Jones or Robert Plant or some other dinosaur said in one of those damned Rock the Vote spots “It’s not just a duty, it’s a priviledge.”
In that spirit, we are opening up to the interweb The First Ever Radio Fever Music Awards Ever.
Make up a category, nominate in an existing category. Don’t be serious about this. Awards shows are for suckers and sycophants. But ours isn’t. No, really. We’re different. Just give us a chance. The awards will be announced on the Radio Fever program on April 16th.

Here’s the so-called “starter list”. Please add and share:
Danny Muggs - "Best Use of a Scarf by a Rock Guitarist"
Pas/Cal - "Most Punctual"
Adam Miller (Adult.) - "Best Shaggy Hair on A techno Guy".

Get Your Irish/Hip-hop On!

Here's the setlist from last week's show. Please note the canny juxtaposition of the sangfaudian metronomic beatitudes of the musics comprising the "Hip-Hop" and the "Irish" (or is it Irish-ish, anyhoo).
If you have requests, we'll take 'em. Just drop us a line. If you're in a band that's not sucky, send us your music at
Radio Fever c/o WKRK
15600 W. 12 Mile Rd.

Party Planet Descending

So, we found out first-hand that it's extremely difficult to blog (someone think of another verb -- stat!) and do a radio show at the same time last night, otherwise, we'd have delivered the disheartening news simultaneously to the airwaves and the interwebs that the much-beloved Detroit City Council -- Tom, Mike, Dum, Black, Nougat, Peanut, et. al -- have decided to call it a night.
We invite you to share your favorite DCC moments here in the Blogosphere.
We'll always have the white-suit-wearin' vision of Potterific nastiness to keep us company as we chase our Maker's Mark with Stroh's and we'll always have the momeories of the most crowded Fever studio to date -- over flowing with funkeriffic goodness and featuring the soothing sounds of Black intoning "PUT THE GUNS DOWN, CHIRREN!!!"
May we suggest that the Council reconvene for every mayoral inauguration? Just a thought.

Lest We forget

Send us your jams, people!

Radio Fever c/o WKRK
15600 W. 12 Mile Rd.
Soudthfield, MI 48220

Damn! Like we gotta ask to make you famous or something.


Here in Your Cars

We feel safe with you on one end of the beam and us on the other. It'd be better if we were all riding in a car together, with the Wolf and I just handing you tapes all cued up to put in the tape deck, but we don't have that kind of physics just yet on this planet. C'est Le guerre.

Still, the show this week'll be totally deck, but in a flippity-flop way, you know what I'm sayin' scratchtastic spatula? werd.

We'll review the Troy Gregory & the Stepsisters jams and play a boatload of other stuff, too. Plus, Greg and I have been reading our Physics for Poets books and our minds are more blown than when we played Wizardry for 12 hours straight back in '86 with nothing but Like Cola (we hearted Like) and Funyons for fuel.

Nevertheless, we invite you to call in to report on the whole "Where You At"/"Who You With"/"What You Rockin'" paradigm. Call 248-559.9797 to get in on the action, cuz lord knowz we'll be sitting in a small room in Southfield waiting for the impending Rockapalypse.

BTW, if there was any finer sight than a gang of perfectly different people all getting down in a cozy space than the Dorkwave set on Wednesday at the Garden Bowl, we've yet to see it. Sassy still has "Love Bizarre" and "HeadOn" stuck in the noggin' and doesn't plan on getting them out anytime soon. Damned inspirational like a good living room party should be say top critics about Dorkwave.
