Sonic Overload 6/3/13

A long time ago—the summer of 1980 to be exact—I was working at the Richdale convenience store in Marblehead, MA. It was the first of two summers I worked for them. Most of my shifts that first summer were in the evening and I’d tune the radio to WERS, the Emerson College station, for a great show called Niteklub (named after the Madness song). One night, I had that show on or maybe one of my tapes and a middle aged woman came in and we were chatting about music. She was a fan of jazz, big bands and the like and was telling me that what I was listening to wasn’t music. And that conversation occurred during one of the songs you hear this week, “Suicidal Tendencies” by the Transplants. I’m sure a lot of my customers didn’t share my passion for the loud punk I played. It was probably a contributing factor to me being shitcanned out of one of the two stores I worked in the following summer. Well that and being rude to a woman who turned out to be the wife of one of the company executives.

Anyway, now I have a different way to share this music or noise and I’d like to think that someone working in a convenience store or some other customer service job has this show playing and it’s helping them get through their shift...
