Is There Anybody Out There?

Late autumn, low wind. Headlights illuminating the otherwise dark. Under the mostlybare trees the road disappears in redgold fire. One ragged bearded guy on a bike in the center of town; otherwise, no cops, no cars, and hardly a light in sight during the drive home from Tributary, your ten to midnight Monday night musicmakers here on WNMH 91.5 fm.

The show itself was quiet, too. Only two callers, both regulars, both within five minutes of each other: Molly called with the correct answer (Pink Floyd) to tonight's trivia question (Name the original performers of "Wish You Were Here"), and then, at 11:20, after missing a first hour that was pretty rockin if I do say so myself, Nora called with a request for "something rockin'." Not even a word from Foster, the weird guy who lives locally and calls fake addresses. (Oh, and I suppose you belive that it's just a coincidence that his address and our phone number are identical?)

Shaw and I were the only ones to Monday Mosh. The site got 60 referrals from iampariah's memelist, so I know the fish are out there. But no one's biting.

EricJ isn't even reading blogs anymore.

Don't get me wrong, it's nice to know who your friends are. But late at night in the valley's dark shadow, under a half-starred night, being "here" feels so alone. Leave me a comment, won't you?

As always, tonight's playlist follows.
