O' god or something like him

Lily Cat on Stuff – February 24th, 2007 – 12PM- 2PM
The Religion I was raised with ….
Interviews with:
-- Tony raised Jehovah's Witnesses,
--Raina Bird raised in the ‘Community’ – a cult run by a fat, bald man, who had 9 wives and thought he was a divinity,
---and via phone Kyria Abrahams writing a memoir about growing up as a Jehovah's Witnesses called "I'm Perfect, You’re Doomed"

It was an amazing show I learned so much about the Jehovah's Witnesses and the ‘cummunity’, and cults in general. We covered both the bad, strangem and good of both religions; and talked people’s need for community which often leads them to follow various religions and cults.

The Jehovah's Witnesses – don’t like their followers making friends outside the religion, are anti – masturbation and blood transfusions

The ‘Community’ had their followers wear white, meditate a lot, was against sex for his followers, but for sex for himself (often with his followers), and had his followers name their children stuff like “Nova” and “Bagel”

To find out more about the Jehovah's Witnesses- http://jw-media.org/

We played:
“My own Personal Jesus” – Bomb
“Jesus got High” – Budderball
“Kiss my Son of God” – They might be Giants
“He, Rodger Williams“ - Slim Cessna’s Auto Club

The best and quickest women’s studies

an interview with Trina Robbins - http://www.trinarobbins.com/

I talked to Trina Robbins about her various books and graphic novels like “Go Girl”, “Tender Murderers- Women who Kill”, “Wild Irish Roses”, Eternally Bad – Goddess with Attitude”, “ Califia, Queen of California”…

We talked about the story historical women in her books, both the good that changed society in great ways and the bad that killed those who upset them or killed to get money.

A couple of cool things we learned:

California was named for Califia -for a mythical Amazon queen!

And Hedley Lamarr - the screen siren of the 1940's invented the communication system used today in transistor radios

We also, played some Hawaiian music (Trina’s favorite) and some music by female singing sirens – Jill Tracy, Bambi Lake, and Bonifire Madigan…

The comic and the musicain

February 3rd - noon-2PM
Lilycat on Stuff

It was great. Mike Spiegelman came on and told jokes and was either trying to complement me or make me blush me - it was hard to say. We did talk alot about people we know doing shows in SF and popcorn Anti theatre - I kept trying to stop and explain it well for listeners out there who don't know these folks.

Then at 1PM Eric McFadden came in - he was great intelligent, funny, talented, and so nice to look at. We talked about his musical history (he started playing in bands at age 11), about his new CD and tour, his new van, life on the road about his favourite and some less favourite folks, and his tattoos. Spiegelman asked some good questions of Eric.

We played alot of Eric's stuff and tried to find a 'White Trash Debutant' song on CD - but the numbering seemed to be off. I wanted to play WTD cause Jennifer Blowdryer was going to come but couldn't make it.

I did PSA on getting itches checked out, being nice to artists and not throwing stuff at them, and the Third Street Light Rail...
--- And talked about how the weather (natural diaster in FL) and the war (121 killed in suicide bomb in Baghdad) suck and about that man that got arrested then off for obscene language in a town hall meeting. He said "god damn"

The songs we played while looking for the 'White Trash Debutant' song:
"Cock Ring for Christmas" - Best Revenge
"I Fucked your Boyfriend" - Nick Name and the Normals

Also, played various songs off of Eric McFadden Trio - 'Joy of Suffering' CD
