Modcast #408: It's Still Rock & Roll To Me

Welly, welly, well, sirs, here it is. Start. Stop. Turn it off and back on again maybe it will work. Lo, and behold the modcast is back up and running after some behind the scenes technical difficulties with my host, Podomatic. I don't know if it makes me feel better to know it wasn't just me that suffered, but most all of those who use Podomatic. But no matter everything seems to be back online and in order.

So, without further ado here is my F-U to trolls of the recent weeks who felt the need to tweet or comment on the Facebook show about how terrible this show is. I think one of them said my voice was like listening to nails on a chalkboard. I've always said I had a face for radio and a voice for silent films, so it isn't like I haven't been upfront about this! My first thought was to actually use recordings of nails on chalkboards, but I was too lazy to spend the time to do all that. Most of the complaints were actually about content; apparently my choices aren't mod enough. I beg to differ for so many reasons, mostly because they're wrong. You can listen in to hear my reasoning, the tracks themselves of course, and judge for yourself.
