Two musical themes on this show, “women in hip-hop” and “the new album Skeet Spirit: a Crunk Tribute to Radiohead is ridiculous, let’s listen”. I also wanted to play multiple tunes from Willie Nelson’s reggae album, but didn’t have time. There were many other female MCs I wanted to play as well, guess I’ll have to save em for another show.

Setlist includes Missy Elliott, DJ Chalie Numbas MsFortune, Jean Grae, the Pixies, Desdamona, the Warriors, Invincible, Willie Nelson & Toots Hibbert, Anomolies, Nouvelle Vague, Leftover Crack, Tigarah, the Go! Team, Kris Kristofferson and the Editors.

I should also apologize; I didn’t listen too carefully to some of the songs before I played them and some of them had what I would consider offensive lyrical content. I think two songs called people “faggots” and one track had vocal samples of the “all women are hos and bitches” variety. Sorry about that.

[correction]

On the show, I talked about a woman who made a disturbance on a plane who was thought to be a terrorist, but was really just suffering from claustrophobia. I accused the media of many errors, but turned out to make a number of errors myself. Details here. Whoops, sorry.

Also, a listener wrote to tell me that the rapper I referred to as “DJ Chalie Numbas” is actually “MsFortune”. Got the track off the DJ Chalie Numbas MySpace page, which made no mention of MsFortune, so at least this mistake wasn’t my fault (Didn’t make much sense anyway, an MC calling herself “DJ”. I think that Chalie must be the DJ on that track).
