Radio Friend,
Bat Guano.

You can now listen! To Bat Guano's SwaG! every Wednesday, 9 p.m. Eastern, or the rest of WIDR's programing at any time, on the WORLD WIDE WEBS once again! Go to WIDR and follow the instructions.


Grab Bat Guano's Booty

Here is your weekly SwaG!, the radio program of Bat Guano.

It began as the usual SwaG! for the first hour. And the Green Slime was without incident... and then Mr. Guano decided to comment on this story, “Recording Industry Decries AM-FM Broadcasting as ‘A Form of Piracy.’”

It would seem that the RIAA would like radio disk jockeys to stop playing music for free. You know -- promoting songs, giving artists exposure. It is a stunning reversal from their traditional practice of payola.

The Dr. (of the following program “Rock and/or Roll”) had to clean the mic off.

If you wish to hear Bat Guano rant, or just want to hear his unique mix of punk rock and ragtime hits, go here. You will also be tempted to steal (listen to, for free) the radio program, but don't do that.


I Am A Superstar Of International Proportions

I, Bat Guano, have been recognized by the international web blog PCL LinkDump as worthy of being one of their bloggers. So I have blogged. Internationally.

Stick SwaG! In Your noizePod!

The Recorded Output of SwaG!, June 4, 2008:

Part one.

A listener sent us this photo during the first hour of SwaG!.


Green Slime paid tribute to the founding father of rock and roll.

Part three.

As always, we saved the very, very, very best for last in hour three.


Listen to it.

SwaG! "podcast" of May 28.

Part one.

A surprisingly upbeat first hour, summery and surfy. Then we somehow end up playing Zappa's "Wonderful Wino:"

I went to the country
And while I was gone
I lost control of my body functions
On a roller-headed lady's front lawn
I'm so ashamed, but I'm a wino man
I can't help myself


We begin GREEN SLIME with George Jones, "The World's Worst Loser," in honor of Sen. Hillary Clinton. Then we rock out. And slide down some jazz hole. And end with very stupid songs. "I'm a drag strip bum-ba-bum-bum-bum!"

Part three.

We took a trip to foreign lands, but some guy wanted to hear The Crazy World of Arthur Brown's "Fire," so things took a turn. Somehow we ended with Brian Eno.


Bye, Bo

Every type of raw hard-edged rock started with Diddley.

"Bo Diddley, who has died aged 79, was one of the most important influences in the development of popular music, even though for much of his career he was seldom in the charts or in the recording studio."
