Tonight’s show started out with the bane of my existence. The dreaded technical difficulties. After a few songs where nobody could hear me but could hear the music (maybe for the best?), I took a short break, rejigged some settings, and the show then went off without a hitch.
We did our usual segments, Born to Die, where I go through the list of famous birthdays and deaths on this day, as well as What Stupid Day is It, where I talk about whatever crazy “National ____ Day” it is today.
