Yes, oboe. Stop whining.

No, I’m serious. Be quiet. It’s my show. Sheesh.

The next ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse, Friday, 02/20/15, 7:00 Pacific/10:00 Eastern) will feature material that includes and/or features Oboe.

You try programming that, hotshot. You’d be throwing in bassoons and French horns, hoping nobody noticed. Don’t think I won’t turn this car around. I have my eye on you.

This is all @talkradio200‘s fault, for the theme at least (and for many suggestions regarding the orchestral material in the show), although he will hate hate hate the Zappa material. All will be explained in the show intro.

The current chaos in my life being what it is, you never know when the show might end its run. So you might want to listen, even though it’s a show about (sigh) oboes.

And yes, the Carly Rae Jepsen tune is Larry O’Connor bait. Thank you for noticing.

Spotify set list is here.

Hope you can stop by and listen, and join us in chat!
