NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #157 ~ 03-10-18]

First, DJ’s Reeshard & Lee-Roy offer heartfelt thanks to all who chipped in on Luxuria Music’s behalf during the past fortnight’s Pledge Drive 2018. (Those who have yet to do so are advised to check the premium links at the tail end of this post.) So you’d think that, with due diligence paid to our effort to keep the station online, the guys could just return to doing what they do best: Creating the perfect soundtrack for ill-considered behavior by spinning three dozen tunes and then some. Rarely, though, is anything quite that simple, certainly not within the Purple Bat Lounge on a Saturday night. Curious sounds drew Reeshard’s attention, even as his canine co-host tried desperately to avoid acknowledging…whatever it was that emerged from the bar’s basement. The fact of The Madison featuring a literal double-header (both films about two-headed monsters) was deemed purely coincidental. Luckily, all heads concerned turned calmer once Uncle Morty’s truck pulled up, dispensing a lascivious strain – for which Lee-Roy, of course, had the perfect application. To hear how it all turned out, in addition to four block-rocking sets of music, click in the right spots just a few pixels to the south of these words. Tune in anyway…

Mad Daddy  You get two lengthy complete broadcasts of Cleveland DJ ‘Mad Daddy’ Myers on one disc, containing two of his shows, one of these being his farewell appearance at WHK in Cleveland, where he made his name. Enjoy the CD booklet graphics (incorporating Lee-Roy’s chew toy) and a little essay for the inside.

MMD  During any episode of N.C.I.P. at 10pm you’ll hear Count Reeshard read Uncle Morty’s fresh menu of garden delights. It’s an education. Oh, yes. A postcard-sized, floppy metallic collant designed to burn into your brain the image of Morty’s famous ice cream truck with the faded popsicle stickers that no longer sells popsicles. When he comes careening around your corner, you’ll know just what to do. “YO! MORTY!”

LEE-ROY  Lee-Roy’s mug graces the graphics of this hex-breaking NCIP magnet; the magic talisman that provides instant relief from your clean and shiny Saturday night. And it’s the perfect reminder to listen, vanquishing your short term memory loss. What was I saying?

Chicken  LET THE CHICKEN IN! The inaugural program premium that started the NCIP magnet craze. A few of these collectible magnets are still available- but when they’re gone, they’re gone. We’re moving on. No repeats. You snooze, you lose.

15 SECONDS   Amaze your friends with this cassette of 15 second samples of Count Reeshard’s vinyl collection encompassing A through L that he recorded while recovering from his vasectomy in Spring of 1990. If truly curious, inquire about the Dr. Wang experience. It’s unbelievable.
