A Shot of Jamieson, Episode 14 - David Turner, #2 (dalatu)
Hi everyone! I was very pleased to have David as my first-ever return guest on Sunday afternoon. We spent this whole podcast talking about the recently completed NBA Finals and the rapidly approaching NBA Draft, so if you don’t like basketball, you should stay away from this one. (I forgot to upload it until this afternoon.)
As always, I welcome your questions, comments, and concerns via tweet, email, or ask box. I’ll be poking around this weekend with some stuff on Jens Lekman, R. Kelly, DIIV, and probably Dirty Projectors. Thanks for listening, and have a lovely Canada Day long weekend!
This was fun to do! If you enjoy basketball or my own thoughts in vocal not written form, listen?! My own voice still sounds weird to myself, but I doubt you all care about that!
Of course, this group has lots of fans like that— lots of them really young, people for whom The Club is legally required to be an abstract concept— so what’s the big deal?
Well, here’s the thing: I’ve always thought that a big part of the appeal of pop music, when you’re young, is the ability to see different stylized versions of what life can turn out to be like. Stepping into this faux-club can be a way for someone to imagine a future of stepping into real clubs, dancing and doing shots and being surrounded by attractive people— just like listening to punk bands can be a way for someone to imagine a community they want to be part of, or listening to rap can be a way to imagine success and wealth and escape from where you are.

So, I am a third wheel on a two man college radio show. That may not be the best way to get the few of you that read this to listen, but considering I only post rap music here with very few exceptions, I would not want someone thinking I am on a of rap show.
The show is on WSOE, and is called Bluesky Lightning, on Tuesdays, from 1pm to 2pm. We mostly play Indie Rock stuff, so it is basically a college radio show with odd and maybe quasi-funny banter inbetween. Listen if you think you might want to.
