Doomsday was supposed to be on Saturday, May 21 at 6pm. By 6:01, Rob Weisberg started Transpacific Sound Paradise with "Just as the Rainbow / The Constant Pageant / Honest Jons" by Trembling Bells.
Since we've been pre-occupied with religious themes all week, let's hear a Kevin Nutt, Sinner's Crossroads archive. Kevin played The Birmingham Jubilee Singers performing "Way Down In Egyptland." Later, he played "Pray On" from 1959 by the Staple Singers. Did you know they recorded gospel before becoming one of Stax Records' best soul bands? Compare "Pray On" to the secular "If It Ain't One Thing It's Another" from 100% Whatever With Mary Wing.
Here are more archives for the doomsday that never came: On Underwater Theme Park, Meghan played "New Born Soul" by Bill Cox. Monica played "New Dawn" by Shackleton. On the Fro Show, Jesse played an Eric Idle version of "Here Comes The Sun" from a 1976 Saturday Night Live. Sue P. played "Midnight Sun" by Human Insect on, no pun intended, Solid Gold Hell. On Shrunken Planet, Jeffrey Davidson played "Walking Into The Sun" by The Brazda Brothers. Just to end another day, "To Sleep I Go" by Gaslight was played by Joe Mcgasko on Surface Noise.
Let's end this armageddon business where we began last week, with Scott Williams. He did last week's show on the premise it could be his last. Two days after the end never came, he continued joyfully hosting free form radio. His first set included his mix of one of Phil Spector's last singles productions, 1969's "Black Pearl" by Sonny Charles And The Checkmates, and "Occupation Of Prussia" by Black Helicopter from the album Don't Fuck With The Apocalypse. WFMU did so all of last week--and won. To celebrate, a bonus archive. Bill Kelly on Teenage Wasteland playing "Black Pearl" in full.
Now TV preacher Harold Camping moved the end date back to October. I guess we'll have to fuck with the apocalypse, at least one more time.
