Radio Unnamable with Bob Fass was a major inspiration in my life and opened my ears to a different way of approaching a radio show. This tribute is not meant to sound like or imitate that groundbreaking show or legendary broadcaster. Instead it displays my own version of painting pictures with music and sound. Unlike Mr. Fass, I do not speak at all, using the music and flow of sound to convey what is on my mind. This was done live, without studio gimmicks and no pre-planned setlist. It's what my dear old friend and brilliant broadcaster Vin Scelsa would refer to as "relying on the mysterious Radio Muse" to inspire the song selection. It's an audio painting or collage of sorts, which is really my favorite form of expression. It was recorded in the middle of the night because that is when the magic happens for me. This is what was on my mind at that moment in time. Hope you enjoy it and it may become a regular thing going forward.

Mike I really like the show and the flow! I spend my day building record crates in my basement to sell on ebay and etsy and so I listen to music the whole time. I've been enjoying your shows from which I have discovered many new artists or heard things that I had forgotten about. I just wish more people would start listening instead of yelling and crying. Thanks so much for doing what you love. It is certainly appreciated by many and certainly by me.

Thank you so much for the wonderful note, Bernie. Just one question. Who is "yelling and crying" and what are they yelling and crying about? Be well.

Kinda of a rhetorical statement about people judging and crying about things they don't agree with. Music can be a common bond so if we would all listen more then maybe we can realize that we aren't that different. Music all ways takes me to a better place.
