with today’s New York Times report that Robert F. Kennedy’s wife, Cheryl Hines of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” notoriety was attacked by the former’s pet emu, we’re coaxed (well, forced) to recall the heyday of the late Rod Hull’s ill-behaved emu (above, left). Before Hull perished in a rooftop antenna-adjusting accident (THAT’S WHAT THEY WANT US TO BELI…

in the words of the wonderful lyricist Bernie Taupin, sorry seems to be the hardest word. Especially if I have to say it many times in one intro. There are a number of inaccurate or potential litigation-bait statements on this week's program and I'd like to profusely apologize for several of them, but perhaps not all of them. I'M SORRY #1 : I regre…

This past tuesday, Brexit architect / all-around shit bag Nigel Farage got hit in the face with a flying milkshake. Remarkably, this was only the second time in 5 years Farage has suffered an assault of this sort ; given his words and deeds, it’s somewhat amazing he’s not being pelted with shakes, malts, DQ blizzards and all forms of sticky/gooey s…

over the weekend while attending a very glamorous music festival, I overheard a fellow behind wondering out loud why venues / stage managers cannot employ the most rudimentary of means to stop bass drums from sliding all over the place (perhaps a series of hooks or a curved plastic fixture). Much as I hated to play mr. know-it-all, I carefully expl…

today marks the program’s 4th anniversary and while I certainly appreciate all the well-wishes (which by and large, are preferable than learning you wish I’d fall down a well), I must humbly plead for the barrage of gifts to STOP. As you’re undoubtedly aware, the 4th anniversary is considered a fruit/flowers occasion here in the USA and much like E…

with the passing of Steve Albini some 7 days ago, you'd think I would have more than enough time to prepare an appropriate tribute program and that was what I reckoned, as well. That is until, my plans to play Sockeye's "Steve Albini Fucked Pac Man" 50 times in a row sans commentary were scuttled by Sockeye's representatives. It seems the most cons…

It's been said this program sometimes finds itself bogged down in subject matter arcane or marginal. Not Arcane Device or Marginal Man, mind you, though even by making those associations it seems I've validated such claims. The primary topic of discussion on this week's show is the grave injustice in veteran character actor Steve Bent's Wiki page m…

With NYC Mayor Eric Adams expressing the deeply researched opinion that protestors at Columbia University are being propped up by "outside agitators", let's once again revisit the 2011 clip in which which Adams --- a NY State senator at the time --- provided tips for beleaguered parents on how to properly search and seize guns and drugs from their …

s I, like many of you, am overcome with PLAYOFF FEVER. Whether imy favorite basketball team's heroic attempts to win a championship for one of the world's worst humans (and one of the top 5 worst guitar players) or my favorite hockey team's heroic atempt to win a championship for the very same worst human (and embarrassment to all-things-guitar), I…

This week'd program was recorded, uploaded and published to all of the relevant platforms but I am sorry to say the the entire episode had to be taken down due to some unfortunate remarks by the host (ie. me). In the aftermath of Monday’s WNBA’s draft, I suggested that one very prominent player (whose name I will not type because I am tired of havi…

This week we bid a not-so-fond farewell to "Coronation Street"'s Mason Radcliffe who appears to be headed for stretch in the stoney lonesome following his conviction on bullying & weapons charges. With any luck, the small screen will no longer be graced by this paragon of abject dipshittery, with his zombie knives, ,his selling-vapes-to-children si…

This week's program --- while exceptional musically, as always --- finds your host remiss in acknowledging the passing of comedic titan JOE FLAHERTY, whose 8 year run as a cast member and writer for SCTV established such indelible characters as Guy Caballero, Sammy Maudlin and Count Floyd. That Flaherty's finest moments are currently unavailable on…

When I began this program nearly 4 years ago, I had some pretty lofty aspirations. With the world engulfed in a horrific pandemic, it was up to someone (ME) to address to looming paucity of online radio shows(the CDC won’t admit it, but we were in danger of falling to fewer than one show per member of the adult population). As much as it was quickl…

Not since the 2013 release of Black Flag's 'What The...' has semi-prominent album release featured cover art nearly as diabolical as Sebastian Bach's forthcoming 'Child Within The Man', though spare a thought for the original designer who misheard his instructions and delivered a sleeve bearing the title, 'Man Within The Child', which for obvious r…

Much as I thoroughly enjoy Fabio's "Strength Thru Failure" program on WFMU each week, I was a little concerned during yesterday's fund raising broadcast when the host sought to characterize his audience as "great listeners". Pandering aside, I could not help but wonder, HOW GREAT ARE THEY REALLY? Take this show for instance. I am sure each of you h…

as we're in the run up to that trade fair to end all trade fairs, South By Southwest, I've been made aware that some artists are boycotting the event due to SXSW's ties to Ray Of Today. While fully respecting the right of any performers, established or not, to make their own decisions, it's hard for me to understand the depth of animus toward Mr. C…

Not to put myself on too high a pedestal, but I tend to think of this program as a public service (you're welcome). And I'm sure many of you have been wondering, "is it possible to fully comprehend the plot twists and intricate character studies of 'The Equalizer 3' if I've not seen 'The Equalizer 2'?" Well, i think that is a very fair question and…

The month of February has been almost a total wash for me — creatively, personally, professionally, you name it. I’ve spent so many hours watching the Old Country Buffet Training Video — analyzing it, looking for easter eggs, finding inconsistencies, etc. that everything else in my life has gone down the fucking toilet. While the rest of you were e…

TWO HOURS OF TEDDY PENDERGRASS....would have been a far more romantic option for this week's program, however after recording all-Teddy sets for the last 3 Valentine's Day, I have been served with a cease & desist notice from the Pendergrass estate. Which I intend to honor.โดย Gerard Cosloy

Not to be outdone by Elon Musk funding Gina Carano’s lawsuit against Disney, Peter Thiel has offered to back my litigation against Light In The Attic charging full price for a bent-corner copy of Les Rallizes Denudes’ ‘Cittá 93’. It seems a little unnecessary, to be honest. If not the equivalent of blowing up an ant hill with a nuclear bomb, than a…

a faulty microphone cable briefly derailed my long story about boring a fellow airline passenger with an even longer story about Boston's DMZ (or more to the point, my DMZ shirt) yesterday. The entire experience left me so disoriented and disillusioned, I misidentified Peter Greenberg as "Jeff Greenberg". I apologize to all listeners (and Peter Gre…

there was a considerable amount of frustration last week following the announcement a media outlet that at one time seemed part of the fabric of everyone’s routine was essentially being shut down by ownership. And while I would never applaud anyone losing their jobs, in the case of The Hard Times, yeah, this was a moment for celebration. Fuck that …

There’s an old saying in the streaming radio business ; you have forever to organize your first show, but you only have 1330 days to prepare for your 190th. I’m no making excuses, far from it. I’ve always been the type to embrace a challenge, even with the clock ticking, so to speak. And I’m pretty sure I’d not be able to successfully complete such…

I am going to assume most of you heard about the host of a recent (bullshit) awards show bombing so badly his name will now be forever associated with BOMBING BADLY. While I would not watch such a program even if you paid me $300 (though might reconsider for $350), I am not without empathy for this person as his profession is quite difficult. I onl…

2024 resolutions for the show 1) as I’ve been bereft of ideas for at least 3 years, lean on @bogstandard2 for all programming decisions (he’s responsible of this week’s Su Lyn selection) 2) when Mark runs out of ideas in 4-5 weeks, segue to an ALL-FANG FORMAT. Nothing but Fang, every show. 3) after the initial FANG BUMP, listenership will drop to t…

Prior to the taping of the LAST EPISODE OF 2023, I photographed the automotive monstrosity above in the parking lot of East 7th Street's H.E.B. and decided to hang around for a bit in order see what sort of person would willingly own such a thing. I'll admit, I had my own preconceptions. Perhaps it was a Tesla exec looking to create a "viral" momen…

this week’s show is devoted to identifying which product —if any — can be called “the Furby of Xmas 2023” (actual Furbies made in 2023 are ineligible as they’re substantially less popular than The Replacements ‘Tim’ remixes box, currently half off at online retail because everyone knows if you get one for a kid you’ll be done for child abuse). Appa…

Dear Friends, presumably you've seen or read about the TikTok manifesto recited by a semi-popular recording artist deeply aggrieved over the somewhat muted launch for a new recording project. Please understand that while I've not seen the rant or heard the album in question, I wholeheartedly applaud any and all efforts to BLAME THE AUDIENCE (especi…

I wasted precious minutes / brain cells this week reading about the modern phenomena dubbed “The Envy Office”. Though I’ve come to understand that every occasion in life — from hotel stays to medical procedures to Static-X reunions to self-immolations - is meant to be a gramable moment, please understand that this program stands in stark opposition…

sincere apologies for the plethora of engineering errors on this week's program --- I've been up very late the last several nights trying to locate the second episode of "Tattingers" (1988) in which Stephen Collins' titular character tangles with a young provocateur quite obviously based on Peter Missing. While I remember this (awful) episode quite…

I'm sure you were all shocked to read reports out of Australia this morning that Anton Newcombe allegedly fired / assaulted his guitarist onstage last night (he probably has a name but I cannot be bothered to look it up) and it does seem a genuine shame that a person with so much talent / humility is prone to breaking up his own bands in such a fas…

It was 4 years ago today that Doug Mosurock introduced the world (well, me, anyway) to the wondrous independent cinematic achievement "Gramps Goes To College", in which a decrepit protagonist introduces an all-too-typical university campus to the joys of CRITICAL THINKING. Widely ignored at the time, "Gramps Goes To College" has since gone on to be…

This week’s program is a star-studded salute to Bridgewater Associates’ Ron Dalio and his valiant, one-man battle to identify, apprehend and punish whichever of his 1000 employees defiled the men’s executive toilets. Some might consider Dalio’s response disproportionate but that’s why he has more money than god and why you and I have, well, less mo…

You may or may not have read yesterday’s reports of a (disgruntled) junior staffer at HBO being ordered to create burner accounts for the purpose of attacking TV critics who had the temerity to suggest The Weeknd star vehicle “The Idol” was the televised equivalent of a flaming bag of dog shit. Unethical? Probably. Petty? DON’T DO ME LIKE THAT. I’m…

Tony Cluedo. Patch Lafeyette. Les McQueen. Bob Chagnall. Individually, their names don’t add up to much. Collectively, their ensemble, 1981 Eurovision entrants CRÈME BRÛLÉE are either one of the most important bands of the post-psych era… or one of the most important bands of the pre-psych revival era. I sometimes cannot recall which, which makes t…

Last week’s passing of thespian/comic powerhouse Suzanne Somers was noted far and wide, in particular her pivotal role in shepherding the career of the reunited Wire in 1987. As you all know, it was not a relationship that would stand the test of time ; Somers’ insistence that inviting Ex-Lion Tamers to support Wire’s first US tour in many years wa…

this friday marks the first WFMU Record Fair since 2019 (typical dealer, shown above) and while I am deeply saddened to miss this event, I’ll be getting vicarious thrills galore seeing your successful hauls online. Barring another global pandemic (or more likely, me oversleeping and missing my flight), I look forward to the 2024 edition and am warn…

so out of the blue some guy (who I've never met or spoken to before) insists that I intervene in a dispute between he and an ex bandmate (an acquaintance of mine) over ownership of some master tapes from the 1990's. I know nothing of the band or the recordings in question. I politely reply, stating this has zero to do with me and wish him luck reso…

i think we’re all familiar with the phenomena of an eagerly anticipated album that has great songs but is handicapped by a confusing, murky-at-best mix, we all know there is one prominent example that has been the subject of endless debate. I’m speaking of course of Upsidedowncross’ 1993 album, ‘Evilution’, the recording of which (with all due resp…

It’s been a more difficult week than usual at TRHTFLTH HQ and I am going to try to explain why. For several years I’ve been compiling intimate conversations with some of the most important icons of our age for my first book. Interview subjects included Joey Welz, the late Curt Low, James Dolan, “Get Metsmerized” auteur George Foster, Robert “Ozn” R…

as we hit episode 172, I am reminded of the time Boston’s Channel 7 — after what has to be considered an exhausting manhunt — bragged they’d secured the services of a highly touted young anchorperson with the ad campaign, “WE FOUND BRAD HOLBROOK IN A DENVER HOTEL ROOM”. Needless to say, may of us wondered what was happening in said hotel room. By c…

You may or may not have read this morning of a Swedish money laundering scheme in which "criminal networks have for several years been using money from drug deals, robberies, fraud and contract killings to pay for false Spotify streams of songs published by artists with ties to the gangs" If you're like me (and I suspect you're not), your first tho…

At least Blabbermouth.net spared us the editorializing for a change. By contrast, the fucking ghouls at METAL INJECTION went with a headline reading "Killswitch Engine's bus hit an elk but everyone is ok". Everyone? The elk didn't survive what the band are optimistically calling "an accident", and it doesn't sit well with me at all that wildlife ar…

strange times in show business for sure and while I’m not (at all convinced) Jason Whitlock-as-hitmaker is an upgrade on Anthony Fantano, I cannot plead ignorance that there’s been an astonishing amount of conversation squandered on the topic of Fudge Rounds and the People That Love Them. By contrast, not one fledgling troubadour has addressed the …

this week's program begins with a lengthy tribute to the late Ron Peno but around the mid-way mark becomes inexplicably bogged down in a panel discussion about where the 2003 staged stabbing of "Cheaters" host Joey Greco ranks on the all-time list of televised hoaxes (then becomes bogged down even further in a heated argument where this incident ra…

as you might’ve read over the last few days, nearly 10,000 people have agreed to legally change their name to “Subway” in exchange for a lifetime of Subway’s yoga-mats-for-bread sandwiches. Putting aside for a moment no one has learned anything from the Rocket From The Crypt tattoo deal a few years ago, Subway’s scheme is as unoriginal as it is nef…

if you’re like me (and I suspect a few of you are), you’ve had your fill with biopics / miniseries chronicling the pseudo-genius/pathological bullshit of modern times’ more notorious entrepreneurs. Elisabeth Holmes, the jagbag from Uber, whoever invented the Blackberry, this fucking Beanie Baby movie (?!), you know THEY EVEN MADE A FILM ABOUT THE G…

This is always one of the more exciting weeks on the summer calendar as we approach THE REPROBATE TRADING DEADLINE ; is your favorite franchise a buyer or seller? Is it time to flip Sammytown for future prospects? Might two contractual albatrosses be swapped for each other, say, Varg Vikernes straight up for John Hinckley Jr.? Anyone who tells you …

I really hoped I could summon the self-control this week to refrain from comment on the topic below, but FFS you’ve all pushed me too far. I don’t want to hear one more word about the Spacehog documentary you just streamed. I don’t care about the first time you heard Spacehog, I don’t care about the first time you saw Spacehog, I don’t care about w…

As the arrears for unpaid Mixcloud and Soundcloud fees continue to pile up, I’ve had no choice to but to reach out to Keller Williams Realty CEO Gary Keller (shown above) looking for a BAIL OUT. Gary has already lent his midas touch to such legendary establishments as the One World Theater and the Saxon Pub, so he’s a natural benefactor for The Rad…
