Hi All – I’m checking in from an undisclosed location somewhere on the Radio Nowhere Summer Spokes 2007 tour… What? You didn’t know there was a tour?
Well, there isn’t really, actually. I’m just combining a little summer bicycle touring and music making somewhere in the area hinted at by the photo below – anyone want to hazard a guess as to where this sign is?everyone knows this is nowhere Correct answer gets a cookie.
Anyway, I returned from several days away from the internets to find my inbox full of Boss-grams from irate Springsteen fans who maybe misinterpreted my previous post a bit.
Just for the record, I want to make it clear that I like Bruce, have several of his records, and think of him generally as a great songwriter and performer. I just wish he’d called his “Radio Nowhere” song something else.
I finally heard the song, by the way. It’s got a good beat, and you can dance to it. Like the guitar too.

Ack. The Radio Nowhere Plan for World Domination had been to stealthily rearrange the inner workings of the internets until this blog became the #1 result whenever anyone googled the currently extremely uncommon term “Radio Nowhere”.
A very good plan, if I do say so myself, until about 5 minutes ago.Now (or as of October 2nd, anyway) – not so much. Damn.
Anyone out there with a good post-Bruce idea for sharing one small indie band’s music with the world? That doesn’t involve Google?

Best known as the title of a Led Zeppelin song (from Houses of the Holy, aka The Weird Albino Kids on a Lava Flow Record), The Crunge is also a great name for whatever evil virus has temporarily vanquished my immune system. Bleah.

Finally, take a look at, which is attempting to make a splash as the first ad-supported “free” download site – they’ll let you download music from the site for free, but when you actually listen to the file, you’ll have to sit through a short commercial before the rock begins.
Sounds sub-optimal to me, but hey, Peter Gabriel’s involved, so it can’t be that bad, right? Right? Anyway, they liked Radio Nowhere enough to put “London Calling” on the front page as a “Tastemaker Pick”, and that’s better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.
