Last Podcastro of the April

The nerd goes on the fritz as all the things that make the nerd break, and we re left with ancient plastic disc technologies. No worries we as ussual perservere.

Raul as ussual was late, but at least he finally showed up.

So bassically the ussual extra letters in words kind of show.

Next week more of the same or perhaps even less, depends on if you're drunk or not, I personally tend to think we sound better jacked up on sobriety, even if our jokes fall flat footed.

Goodbye for now.

A caller made a request for a Tim Russ song. I was a forgetful Franklin and forgot to play the request. Tim Russ is one of our G.A.P.E.S. and is probably better known as Tuvok the Vulcan on Star Trek: Voyager. There are many actors and actresses from the Star Trek franchises that delve into music careers, Russ being one of them.

Please accept his music video as an apology!

Unofficial tribute to Peter Steele.

We won't go into why we felt the need to tribute Peter, but you can read all about it by scrolling down. I hope we did him some justice.

We appologize for not playing Be My Druidess for the listener that requested it, we felt that "I'll do anything to make you come" could have been misconstrued as some vague veiled reference to female ejaculations and considering the FCC has no sense of humor and we are a very small radio station we tend to be submissive in this area, so we can keep doing something worthwhile with radio.

Everything Dies

I run the risk of spouting off without an OK from Raul but I suspect that I can safely say I am speaking for both of us in regards to this matter.
While I would not argue that the group was nerdy in the typical ways, Type O Negative frontman Peter Steele passed away last week. Both Raul and myself were more affected by this than by the passing of other artists. Neither of us could be described as “goth” or “dark” but TON's music rose above labels and genres, having a deep impact on the evolution of our musical tastes. Both of us approach music in a manner that is much more weighty than those into music for casual enjoyment. To both of us, music is Serious Business! We wouldn't be working at WIDR, providing you with this show every week without the impact TON and other bands had on us throughout our lives.
I distinctly remember hearing the song “Love you to death” off their October Rust album and being completely floored. I was somewhere around the age of 13 or 14, which means I made my dad drive me to the store so I could buy the album that very day because I HAD TO HAVE IT. There was no question to the matter.The song still gives me goosebumps, the same goes for much of the rest of their catalog.
I can't speak for Raul when I say this next bit, but there are very few other bands that have made such a deep impact on the formation of my musical tastes. I suppose my age had something to do with that, being my formative years and such, but the fact still remains that they are one band within a handful of others that I still hold in very high regard and still listen to regularly in my adult life.
Another thing that impresses me is that their tone has remained very tasty throughout their discography. I'm sure Raul knows all the instrument info (as does the intarwebs if you really need to find out RIGHT NOW) but their guitar and bass distortion coupled with their drum sound is the perfect setup to compliment Steele's deep, subwoofer-rattling vocals. If I was a girl, I'd be wet with anticipation. For realsies. Rounding out the deal is the dark-humor themes found in their lyrics. I have LOL'd at many of their song's messages coupled with Steele's delightful Brooklyn accent.
You don't have to listen to the band or share our enthusiasm for their music just because I happened to have some sort of mental ejaculation when I heard them. What I do hope is that those of you who listen to music as fiercely as we do take a moment to listen to a song, album, or band that had a profound effect on you and consider what kind of far-reaching impact that music has had on your life.
As I said, without Raul and I sharing a deep appreciation for music its likely that we wouldn't be on the radio providing you with a show that (I hope) reflects our enthusiasm and exposes our listeners to new, interesting and independent music. Thanks for listening (and reading).

Yet another podcast for your enjoyment

Here it is, folks; another podcast for yo' ass!
Fidel is again alone as Raul continues to work on his graphic design homework and neglects the show. This keyboard in the studio is still quite the hunk of crap.


Have a good week,
Fidel Podcastro

Sometimes I feel profane. NWS!!!!

This video, while old, never fails to give me a laugh. Very much NWS, but thats part of the reason I'm linking it. We can't say naughty words on the radio, gotta have an avenue to get it out of our system somehow. Enjoy. - Fidel Podcastro

p.s. - To the awesome dude, Joseph, who donated to WIDR during our show: your personalized LAN Party gift is closer to realization. Please allow us some more time, as the item will have to be shipped to us, then shipped to you.

YAY!!! Its a new podcast!

Heres the podcast for 4-7-10:


Fidel was lonesome tonight, what with Raul working on his homework. Having all the requests helped combat the thumb-twiddling. Enjoy!

p.s. - The keyboard I'm currently using to type this is a fucking piece of shit. Arghhhh! No wonder Raul gets mad when he uses this computer to make the podcast.
