Google Glass invades the studio
Just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone for tonights show. All of your love & support for myself,tiny & The Moss family has been overwhelming through this very tough time. Monday will be very hard I won’t lie but knowing that all of you are there to support us BEYOND the radio show really means the world. I want to thank SO many people that it would probably be rude to list names cause I would forget someone. If I’ve talked to you in the last few days you already know how much it has meant. Couple people I want to thank. Drew & Andrea Clark for coming in studio & hangin with us during a very difficult time. Drew even learned Shelly’s song & was going to play it acoustic for us but I had no idea. Also wanna thank Olin & Jonny G & Billy Lisk for always being supportive & keeping things postive. Don’t know what I’d do without them guys on a Sunday night. Thank Mike Parsons for calling in & chatting with us. There has been SO MUCH support during this time at Tapdetroit I cant thank everyone there enough. Tonights show was difficult to say the least & we need everyones help to make sure that Jack Richard grows up & knows how awesome his Mommy was. 1 of Shellys friends has started a fund for Jack Richard. Please if you can help donate whatever you can http://www.gofundme.com/3m0iv0. Its greatly appreciated. Jack Moss Jr,Erma Moss & Leo Gidea are going through a very difficult time. Any support they can get is truly appreciated. Tiny & myself will be at Shelly’s funeral tomorrow at Uht Funeral Home in Wayne on Glenwood & Elizabeth. If you want to send anything to the family you can @ http://www.uhtfuneralhome.com/obituaries/memorial.aspx?index=4133. Even just kind words are appreciated.

Featuring Live in-studio performances from
Red Tape Riot – Hour 1
Carrie McFerrin – Hour 2
I had a chance to sit down with Nick Coyle the front-man for the band on the phone. We talked about their unique name, as well as upcoming tour dates here in Michigan and some influences. We also talked about how they formed the band, after Breaking Benjamin. Great interview!
Stardog Champion is set to rip up the Deisel Concert Lounge in Chesterfield this September 25th.
“The making of a great compilation tape, like breaking up, is hard to do and takes ages longer than it might seem. You gotta kick off with a killer, to grab attention. Then you got to take it up a notch, but you don’t wanna blow your wad, so then you got to cool it off a notch. There are a lot of rules. Anyway…I’ve started to make a tape… in my head…”
Nick Hornby, High Fidelity
So I compiled this weeks mixtape and had it finished by Thursday night. Then around 2pm Friday afternoon I got the great idea to scrap the tape and start a new Back To The Beach mixtape as a sequel to last weeks tape. Sidenote: it took 5 days to compile last weeks mix. It’s painstaking work finding punk songs with beach in the title. Try it. Google “punk songs about the beach” or “punk songs with beach in the title”. YOU GET NOTHING!!!! Just a bunch of forums with people trying to convince you that”beach punk” is a thing. It isn’t. So here is the mix I originally started with and next week I will have Back To The Beach 2: Frankie Slaps Annette ready for your ears. This mix here is dedicated to the weird non-beachgoing kids…
Mixtape Name: HEY, WHAT’S WITH THOSE WEIRD KIDS?
“Love Comes In Spurts” by Richard Hell & The Voidoids
“Evil Livin” by This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb
“You Suck” by The Yeastie Girlz
“Roid Rage Talkshow” by Zoinks!
“Smart Patrol/ Mr. DNA” by Devo
“Let Beauty Loose” by Nitzer Ebb
“I Slept In An Arcade” by Black Randy & The Metro Squad
“Figure Of Fun” by The Birthday Party
“Dyin For It” by The Vaselines
“Birdhouse In Your Soul” by They Might Be Giants
“Starvation Dance” by Really Red
“St. Vitus Dance” by Bauhaus
“Straight To The Office” by Scared Of Chaka
“Fuk Shit Up” by Blatz

So that’s it freaky weirdos. Think of this tape as a starter pack in Magic: The Gathering. It can lead you on a journey that will place you forever indoors, away from the sun. That or make you awesome and attractive to the ladies/dudes.
Every week Friday at 7:00pm Elitist Geezer Punk Radio on Tapdetroit.com will be providing you with a mixtape that pays due credit to the punk scenes of the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and that’s it. If you were in a band or knew some bands or collected any CD’s of local punk bands please send us your shit at…
…or even if you just have a great story from your days of Dr. Martens Boots and chain wallets jot it down in an email along with a song request and, who knows, I’ll probably play it.
