SAVE US GALACTIC FEDERATION (episode 30)

My thoughts on how the pandemic is a giant audition for the Space Federation and we are failing it miserably. Do you know how many aliens must be laughing at us right now? Think about the weirdest documentary you ever watched. One about people keeping monkeys as babies. Or the multiple documentaries about men with mannequin girlfriends. Think about the cruelest person from each film. That's us, but on a multi- galactic scale. Why are we this way? Explore as many genres of songs about space by humans that I can reasonably flow together. Synthwave. Country. Ideal breakfast sandwich combinations.

Everyone's favorite space bear makes an appearance, as do a couple of songs about cats in space.

Krista (host) 8:08:32 AM
It's difficult to describe! swiss cheese, everything bagel seasoning, pork roll, spinach inside a croissant-like round savory cheese pastry
jimbeaux 8:10:24 AM
Sounds good! Off to work...will be listening periodically. Thanks...space on!
Teresa Peacock 9:06:01 AM
Good morning, Krista! What a wonderful, spacey, funky accompaniment to hear whilst driving my son Max to his day program! Sun's shining, sky is limpidly blue -- a perfect Habitat Enrichment bliss-out! <3
Krista (host) 9:12:01 AM
lovely to hear, Teresa! I was cleaning the breakfast off my own son!

Shonen Knife was recommended by both Commie Francis of Uneasy Listening and Dana K of Don't Back the Front.

I wish I could get my vaccination today! The day I do is the day you'll hear the strangest cover I can find of LMFAO's "Shots" on the radio!
Krista (host) 9:16:00 AM
Just watching others get theirs is SO relieving! I feel like a weight is lifting a little bit.
kentman 9:16:17 AM
We'll be hear, here for that!
Teresa Peacock 9:18:36 AM
What kentman said! 💕 It fills me with hope and relief too.
Krista (host) 9:19:38 AM
My second to last song of the day is quite challenging to the listener, and contains tones some people with hearing loss might find either amazing (like me) or terrible, fair warning. It's a very interesting synth track, starts at 9:50
kentman 9:21:28 AM
Read it in the Irish Times this Am,Teresa,they are calling their vaccination roll out VDay
