      I had the Mountain Goats on Haywire today. It was really terrific. Not only is John Darnielle a great singer and songwriter, but he also is really intense when he sings, which is nice to see up close. Try it for yourself! The Mountain Goats are playing a show at GO on Feb 16. Their new album, We Shall All Be Healed, comes out on Tuesday. It's a big month for the Mountain Goats and we are proud to have him and his wife as new residents in Durham.

      The bad news is that the minidisc player at the station has seemed to malfunctioned and I didn't get a copy of the show today. Wah! If

      [Well, I went ice skating yesterday for the first time in,
      oh, 20 years. It was awesome. I brought my daughter
      and her friend. At one point they put the Scorpions greatest
      hits on the speaker system and I started having serious
      flashbacks to the late 70s and early 80s. Suddenly the
      Scorps were my new favorite band...once again. Well
      anyways, I decided to come in and play a few good
      songs about skating. I started with this one which just
      about says it all. It's about downing 7 soda pops to
      try to get the nerve to ask the girl of your dreams
      out for a couples skate.]
