Where's your guts
And will to survive
And don't you wanna
Keep rock n' roll music alive
Mr. Programmer
I got my hammer
and I'm gonna
Smash my
Smash my

It was announced today that Boston's fabled radio station WBCN is having it's plug pulled. Although I have not listened to the station for many years and felt that they started to slip sometime in 1980s culminating with becoming utterly unlistenable in recent years I still feel a bit sad about the announcement. I guess I held out some sort of unrealistic hope that the station would cast off it's corporate, focus group driven programming and somehow provide decent music once again. Unfortunately commercial radio and to some extent so called "public radio" are both victims of "milk toast syndrome" of boring predictable programming.
Anyhow I have one glimmering bit of the goodness from WBCN's past, and surprisingly it's not from the 80s. It's one 5 hour chunk of programming from July of 1997 when Joey Ramone guest hosted "Nocturnal Emissions". The Ramones had done their last show less than one year before. Joey had already been diagnosed with Lymphoma which would take his life less than 4 years later. It's a beautiful 5 hour stretch of programming with Joey clearly picking his own music (with some help). It's not slick or "professional" but it certainly is "rock and roll" in the best sense.
I'll only have this up for a limited time (or less if I my web host bitches), but here in 5 parts is most of that evening's programming with Joey Ramone. Enjoy...
