A Season in Hell #30: Best of 2009 with Mikl-em

We had a great time playing music from 2009. Mikl-em threw in a few reissues, but it's all good. Click here to go to the Podcast.

Or you can go to the FCCFreeRadio site. You need to click on "podcast" to get to the show. Then click on "A Season in Hell" to play the podcast from the show, but it's only up for one week; be warned.

Scott Beale from Laughing Squid spent the evening with us as well. We talked all things music and entertainment in SF.

John Hell's Best of 2009

This is harder than it appears. I didn't want 1000, or even 100 songs/artists on this list. 21 is good.

It's possible that a couple of these tunes are from 2008. As a matter of fact I can guarantee it. No matter, they came to my attention in '09.

20th Anniversary of the Loma Prieta Earthquake

I was working at 97.3fm KRQR, on the 32nd floor of Embarcadero One, in downtown SF. I was in the main studio, sitting on a tall hydrolic lift chair, which had it's issues, when the quake hit. I thought at first that the chair was breaking, when all of a sudden the five-foot-tall cart rack, which held our commercials, directly next to me, fell over. We knew right away it was an earthquake.

I attempted to jump off the chair, and make a break for the door. It was not an easy thing to do. I never did make it there. Looking out the window, I saw the Bank of America building waving at us, and we were waving back.

Following the quake, the power at Embarcadero One was out. I was running between KRQR and KCBS. They had me running news copy to read on the air. All the staffers were in the studio with us, sharing their thoughts.

Eventually, I and the mail-room guy took off and walked all the way over to the Marina district to see the fire.

By the time I got back to the garage at the Embarcadero, the streets were very dark, except for the cars escaping out of the city, by crawling out, like roaches, creeping down the darkened streets.

The garage attendant waved me through the gate, which was nice, since I was on empty and had only four dollars in my pocket. I found the 76 station on 1st and Harrison open, put four dollars in, which then bought four gallons, enough to get me home in San Mateo.

I have a memory of going south bound on 280, but found an accident involving two Muni buses going north bound on the 280 south bound lanes. Hmm....

Strange thing about that day, all the women I spoke with earlier in the day had headaches. I also lost a watch that meant a lot to me, a few days previous, only to find it after the quake. That, along with the luck of using my last four dollars to purchase gas instead of paying the parking attendant, made for a very unusual day. And of course, the earthquake.

Risk

There is no reward in life without risk.

You just have to know what it is that you're risking.

If you're risking something like embarrassment, well, I think you just to get over that.

I embarrass myself at least once a day.

I'm prone to it.

Therefore, I'm used to it.

Once you can get over yourself, you find that life is a jewel. Life is beautiful. Life is worth living. You can sit there, on your couch, for as long as you like, but life will pass you by. As a matter of fact, I'm of the strong belief that the longer you sit, the harder it is to get up. So GET UP! Start living. Start risking. You never know, you might just have a whole lot of fun.

Acting in good faith

I think no matter what you do in life, you need to act in the best faith possible. Put your compassion into it. Be the best listener you can be. Do not wait to talk. If you can honestly place yourself in the other person's shoes, and be as honest and compassionate as you can be, then no one can blame you for the outcome.

Daddy/Daughter Weekend

There is nothing better than having my daughter lay on my lap, smiling and laughing. It fills me with pure joy. Her words are the sweetest. Her humor is so fresh. Her smile is genuine.
