Operation Manatee #9: Moving Forward, Looking Backward

Cory and Chris visit some favourites from the ’90s and from today and find a surprising amount of time to badmouth Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins.

It’s Tuesday again, and naturally, that means you are wet (salivating, you dog) with excitement at this week’s show! Well, we’re excited too! Or… at least, Chris is. Chris assumes Cory is as well. Chris is excited because he thinks he can pull off a mix of old and new favourites for tonight.

Writing about myself in 3rd person is weird. Hell with it.

I found myself listening to some old favourites since last week and really really want to play some of them. I don’t want to get stuck in ’90s rock hell, though, so I dug out some of my recent favs as well. I’ve gathered an alarming amount of great new music in downloaded form (legally, because ripping off musicians is f’d up) over the past couple of years, and it’s about time I started getting serious about playing it on OpMan. Cory has mentioned too that he’d like to dive more into newer stuff.

With that in mind and with the rest of the day to think about it, we’ll see what we can come up with. In the end, you can be sure that at least you’ll be able to listen to some really good stuff!

Stay up with us from 11:00 to midnight tonight. We’re looking forward to it.

** Note: Sorry, the audio gets crazy at about 45 minutes. I’m sure it was the ghost of Billy Corgan extracting his revenge **
