Jon Solomon’s Marathon – Because You Can’t Count On Steve Somers To Spin Culturcide’s “Depressed Christmas”

Posted in Merry Fucking Christmas, Radio, Rock Und Roll at 3:30 pm by

Jon Solomon‘s Annual 24 Hour Holiday Radio Show kicks off in about 90 minutes on WPRB (streaming live via iTunes, Windows Media or Real Player), and if you’re like me (alone, cold, surrounded by unopened bills, empty bottles and hungry pets), you’ll be listening to a good portion of the broadcast.

My favorite part every year comes at around 2 or 3am when Jon defends himself against charges of financial misconduct, using sick children as props and just generally goes fucking nuts over the way the news media has hounded him for years.

Or maybe that’s the Jerry Lewis Telethon. I get the two events mixed up sometimes. The music on Jon’s show is usually much better, though. Will this year’s marathon feature the festive-stylings of The Christfits? You’ll just have to tune in to find out.

    there’s your bright side for xmas, then. No matter how bad it gets, you don’t have to worry about a dog eating your corpse.

    Not that I worry about, either. i mean, Bob Knight had something or other to say about inevitablity.

    I might still be in a daze from playing holiday records on the radio for 24 straight hours but I’m pretty sure I just heard Steve Somers say “if you put it in your taint, you’re tainted” when talking about steroids in baseball. I’ve got a long way to go before I’m in that guy’s league.
