On a hot summer night...

...would you offer your THROAT.... to the wolf with the red... roses? Yes, it's a FULL TWO HOURS of JIM STEINMAN and MEATLOAF!.... erm.... not. Nothing AGAINST them, of course. "Bat" is one the the most CLASSIC 70's rock albums EVER....! But that's just a ref to the frickin' HEAT! I was in Florence, Or earlier today and though the sun was hot, the wind felt chilly as the arctic blast it was. Like sitting in front of a HUGE air conditioner while outside in the sunshine. Really odd. ANY-how... As opposed to last week's German invasion, this week I feature no bands from Rhineland to realign things. As usual I start out accessible and tonight I'm drifting into the 'iffy' range per really out there tunes a bit early. Usually it's the last 30, 45 minutes but tonight I think it's about an hour or more. Guess the line is fine depending on where one sits on the weird music fence. I AM featuring 3 minimalist composer greats from the 20th century toward the end... Xenakis, Stockhausen and Reich. Ending with white noise basically (literally, actually on a couple levels) with a classic Whitehouse number.
