RAAB Radio #55: A Rainy Waste of Time in SF

As you probably know by now, I spend (nearly) every Saturday night from 10pm-midnight DJing a radio show in San Francisco.  This week, it was raining and although I didn’t want to leave my house to go to the studio, I sucked it up and brought some really weird shit: songs about rain, songs about wasting time, Rihanna/Lydia situation, weird ’70s samples followed by intense hxc, some good/bad metal, ’60s girl groups, and lots of non-punk in general bc I’m a sell-out. THANK GOD for Crass who eventually saved the day. Stream the show below.

Or if you’re easily bored like me, and you’d rather skip around rather than listen to the whole 2 hours, you can download the show right here.  (Also the link to check out the particularly entertaining chatbox convos from last week’s show.)

    Lydia Lunch and Rihanna? That’s weird.
    Chrys Alice is one of the best names for a band ever.

    “Scumbag” by Pink Kross kicks ass. Are you familiar with an Italian punk/riot grrrl band by the name Captiva Bambina? I’m sure I have the name wrong, but I bought the album years ago, and it has a woman in an one piece bikini, striped, on the album cover. The two songs I dug most were “In My Memory” and “I Will Always Love You”. Thanks.
