We Like All Of The Things The Famines Do

Updated March 22, 2012: Somebody really did want to know what colour underwear to wear on the second date, enough to remind us not to forget to ask. As far as we’re concerned, if it’s important enough to someone else for them to go (slightly) out of their way, then it must be important, right? Well, not necessarily, but the point is that we asked. Raymond gave us a charming account of how, as truly cosmopolitan his underwear choices must now be as a denizen of Montreal, he still buys all his underwear right here in E-town. This was not before Garrett gave the straight-shootin’est answer we ever could have expected: RED. And so, red it is. You heard it here first, er, second, actually. Hmm, actually, you heard it here fourth, come to think of it, but that makes it no less a definitive answer, so stop crying.

Are you ready for this? Have you heard? Did you know about the Thursday, March 22, 2012 edition of the 68Comeback Special? But how could you know, when we haven’t told you?  Ah, but you wouldn’t believe it if we told you, so maybe we won’t tell. Aw, but who’s kidding who around here? We can’t keep a secret to save our lives (except that we have, in this case)! Until now, that is. Okay, are you ready for this?

On this Thursday’s show, on CJSR-FM, from 3 to 5 in the everlovin’ afternoon: The Grade 5 Report (comme d’habitude). Maybe the feature in which, once a year, we try to enjoy Pere Ubu (a real thing; we’ve not been overly successful). What else? Excited talk about unexciting things? Vice versa?

NO! BETTER! The Famines will be dropping by to talk about their gig at Wunderbar, the lost art of artistry, the best colour underwear to wear on a second date, and what it’s like to secretly be Barack Obama (shhh!). Would you be a fool to miss it? Ask your mom.


Reasons, Reasons, Reasons

Mark it down on your calendar, enter it in your smart phone, do whatever you need to do so that you DON’T MISS tomorrow’s 68Comeback Special show! It’s recently come to our attention that, if not for a small problem with deceasedness, Freddie Mercury would be celebrating his 65th birthday this coming Monday, September 5, 2011. And so, in addition to a panel discussion of just how unbearable he would be if he was still alive, there will be the traditional playing of all of side 2 of Mr. Bad Guy.

Waitaminnit…rock and roll intermission!

And hey, between tomorrow’s being the first day of school and it being his tenth birthday next week, it would be foolish for you to miss Gabe’s first ever Grade Five Report. And maybe/probably other stuff, too. So just DON’T MISS IT. Tomorrow, CJSR-FM88, 1500 to 1700 hours.
