shows // Have you heard about the word

talk // eclecticmusic // situationcomedy // dada // unpop

Each week we will grab a word out of thin air. We will poke it and pry it, and pursue it in song. We will find out where it has been and with whom; why it cheated on its meaning. Join us as we saw its bones, tap its liver and smell its spleen. We will say more than a few words and after a hymn we will scatter the word's ashes across the airwaves where they will vainly linger until reborn on your lips.

Each week one word will direct music and talk.

don't judge an episode by its word

Have you heard about the word // 03.02.11 // Nothing!

This week we thought about 'nothing'. But what the show may have lacked in planned connotative content, it more than made up for with music. Thanks to the assistance of DJ Sartre and his collection of vinyl, the lonely vacuum of nothingness was a fulfilling musical adventure.
