You're Fired!


divShare - against the wall!

After close to two month's of waiting for the once very reliable service to get their shit together, they are still barely limping - and today the site was missing for awhile!!

It's time for a change.

This interruption in your ability to stream and download new and old  RFW Transmissions has been very frustrating and I once again thank you for your loyalty and patience!

Until the new system is in place, I'll post regular choice video selections - like:

~(Who Knows) What Evil Lurks?~

Transmission 3215

In the (simple)minds of men and women alike, an animal instinct lies dormant, until something - someone flips the switch and the ultimate sin is committed. Sometimes premeditated and others snap in a murderous rage. RFW takes a peek within courtesy of Simple Minds, Angela Alexander & J.D. Saddler, The Band, Motorpsycho, System Of A Down, Lou Reed, Willie "Loco" Alexander & The Boom Boom Band, Was (Not Was), Siouxsie & The Banshees, Bauhaus, Golden Earring, Van der Graff Generator and Alice Cooper!

"someone shot nostalgia in the back"


*"Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!" was the introduction of The Shadow radio program spoken by actor Frank Readick Jr. accompanied by Camille Saint-SaĆ«ns' Le Rouet d'Omphale ("Omphale's Spinning Wheel", composed in 1872). At the end of each episode The Shadow reminded listeners that, "The weed of crime bears bitter fruit. Crime does not pay... The Shadow knows!"

**The Killer Inside Me is a 1952 novel by American writer Jim Thompson
 published by Fawcett Publications. 
Still a great read!

A taming of the shrew?

*I agree that anything less than Ozzy with Black Sabbath is "less than" ...but in 1983, Ian Gillan fronted the band in support of the "Born Again" lp. What a show!

~Holy RFW~

Transmission 2715

More wars have been waged and people killed in the name of god(s) and religion than for any other reason in our history. How naive it is to think that any one club has a back-stage pass to eternal bliss in the after-world. Although an appropriate RFW theme since this is an important weekend for Christians and Jews alike, my selection of  musical reflections are less an indictment of any particular flavor, than an all encompassing statement of the obvious. Andy Partridge asked this imposing entity an eternal question,"Did you make mankind after we created you"? John Lennon declared, "I just believe in me". I say, believe in , love and follow who or what you wish, just don't expect me to make a lemming-like leap of faith behind you. 

Please turn to page 2715 in your hymn-book and sing-along with R.E.M., Mach Five, Trifle, The Pretty Things, Bomb The Bass, Ten Years After, Spiritualized, Gregory Issacs, Blind Willie McTell, Edward Clayborn, Edna Gallman Cooke, Bo Carter & The Mississippi Sheiks, Stepes, The Proletariat, Julian Cope and a very sacrilegious coda from Cartman of Faith +1!
