Tales From SYL Ranch – 2017-01-29

I have what I think is a decent line-up for a premiere show.  I have to admit that it took more time than I thought to come up with two hours’ worth of material that hopefully flows.

Unless something changes, here’s what you’ll be hearing:

  • The ten minutes before the show is filler of the Star Wars Holiday Special.  You probably won’t hear it unless my stream gets cut-to early.
  • Original aNONradio Station ID
  • “The Following Is Transcribed” announcment
  • Original program ID
  • “When Twilight Falls On NGC 891” from the film Dark Star.
  • Weekly show-opener.
  • Star Wars Main Title – Complete”
  • “Princess Leia’s Theme” intruction
  • “Princess Leia’s Theme” from the film Star Wars
  • “The Imperial March (Darth Vader’s Theme)” from The Empire Strikes Back
  • Figrin D’an And The Modal Nodes perform at the Mos Eisley Cantina from Star Wars
  • Original aNONradio station ID
  • The Hitchhiker’s Guide To the Galaxy entry on the 2016 Presidential Election
  • “Journey Of the Sorcerer” by the Eagles
  • Original aNONradio station ID
  • “The New Empire – Howell Theme”, a Doctor Who theme by Hardwire
  • Animal Stories:  “Truckin Rhino – The Full Story”, a rare version from the 1980s LP.  The current CD version edits the end of the story.
  • “Incoming Fighters” from Star Wars
  • “Han Solo And The Princess” from The Empire Strikes Back
  • “Sail Barge Assault (Alternate)” from Return Of the Jedi
  • “Destroying the Death Star” from Star Wars
  • “Throne Room and End Credits (Revenge Of The Sith Version)”
  • A brief statement on the universe as a computer simulation
  • “Main Titles” from the TV series Lost In Space as performed by the Cincinnati Pops
  • “Prelude And End Title March” from Superman (1978)
  • “Kent Family Theme” from Superman and Superman Returns
  • “The Flying Sequence” from Superman.
  • “The Big Rescue – Climax and Denouement” from Superman
  • Suite From Close Encounters Of the Third Kind
  • “The Raider’s March” from Raiders of the Lost Ark, performed by the Boston Pops and conducted by John Williams.
  • “John Williams Is the Man” performed by the Valhalla High School Concert Choir
  • Original aNONradio station ID
  • A word from Rob Hansen on feeding hatred
  • “Jerry Springer” by “Weird Al” Yankovic
  • “Main Titles” from Doctor Who as performed at the 2010 Proms
  • A word from Bill Stone on feeding hatred.
  • “Benson, Arizona” from Dark Star, performed by Dominik Hauser
  • A statement of the Zero Aggression Principle
  • Original aNONradio station ID
  • The first few minutes of The Star Wars Holiday Special.

As regards the Holiday Special, I decided that five minutes of Wookie noises would be marginally better than “Doolittle’s Solo” from Dark Star.  If there’s any interest, I’ll play the entire 90 minutes of the Holiday Special.

I’m not proud.
