Underworld – today, 2-4 p.m.

Filling in for the inimitable Doug Morgan on KDHX’s “Underworld” this afternoon, 2-4 p.m.

After spending half the night awake with some type of weird anxiety attack, and not even close to having caught up to speed… well, that and the rain points towards a certain kinda vibe today, no? Should be something like fun.

Request line: 314-664-3688. Be kind.

The Spins

Fourth Friday (the 23rd) and fifth Friday (the 30th).

The Royale, 3132 So. Kingshighway, 10-last call.

Thinking of themes this round. Hmm.

Coin-Operated Radio, Saturday, March 10

It’s my good fortune to fill-in on Coin-Operated Radio this weekend: Saturday, March 10, 6-8 p.m. On, of course, KDHX 88.1 fm. Seems that I’m always hooked-up with an outrageous amount free tickets for this show, so do tune in.

There’s also that weekly, Monday night slot, from 7:30-8:00 p.m. That’ll be upcoming, too. No concert tickets, though.

Metropolis’ “The Read”: March 29

I’ve been asked to take part in the long-running Metropolis book project, The Read, which will be held on Thursday, March 29, from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. I’ll be reading from and discussing selections from the book, “Gaslight Square: An Oral History.”

Books will be available that evening at the site, and are currently available via Left Bank Books, among other local retailers. You can certainly attend sans book, as well.

The event will be held, intriguingly, in one of the new homes built in the Gaslight Square development, at 4135 Olive. It’s a furnished, but unsold unit, so this is an opportunity to take a peek inside one of the new spaces along the historic block. That’s something I’ve yet to do, myself, so I’ll be interested in doing so in just three weeks. I certainly have some feelings about that project, and this evening’ll provide a perfect backdrop to have that discussion and more.

Mmm. About it at the moment.

My pocketbook wails!
