Not American Top 40 #055 – All My Vinyl of 2023, Part Deux

Oops, DJ Scummy B needs to do it again. Play selections from all his vinyl acquired in 2023 again, that is. There was too much to squeeze into two hours last time, so prepare for Part Deux. Featuring Fake Fruit, Gang of Four, Sessa, Aviador Oro, Deep Feeling, Familea Miranda, Richard Lloyd, Jonathan Richman, Talking Heads, Lloyd Cole, Herbie Hancock, Ornette Coleman, and más.

Not AT40 #054 – All My Vinyl of 2023

DJ Scummy B got a lot of vinyl last year… some might say too much. So he plays a pile of it for you. It weighs less than a ton, but more than a baby’s arm. Featuring Suzy & Los Quattro, Rik L Rik, A Split Second, ADULT., Ibibio Sound Machine, Piper, Aquarius, Testament, Boris, Virgin Steele, Wipers, Stereolab, and more.

Not AT40 #053 – All My CDs of 2023

CDs aren’t dead! DJ Scummy B is just hoarding them all because they’re cheap AF! Two hours of all the compact discs acquired in 2023. Perfect sound forever! Includes, Robert Cray Band, Pete Townsend, Mo Troper, Dramarama, King’s X, The Stooges, Françoise Hardy, Brigitte Bardot, Serge Gainsbourg, Sun Ra, Therion, Celtic Frost, Gorefest, Deicide.

Not AT40 #052 – A Very Reluctant XXXMAS

DJ Scummy B is allergic to holidays, but he got some meds and is powering through to stuff your stocking with this mix of decidedly unpopular Xmas music. Featuring King Diamond, 220 Volt, Weird Al Yankovic, James Brown, The Temptations, Quintron and Miss Pussycat, Kurtis Blow, Shawn Lee’s Ping Pong Orchestra, Sonic Youth, Korn, Bob & Doug McKenzie, Grandaddy, The Surfaris, Eek-a-Mouse, and more.

Not American Top 40 #050 – Cassettes, Come Back!

Is it a cassette comeback, or do we just wish cassettes would come back? Either way, DJ Scummy B presents a full two hours of nothing but cassettes, everything – and he does mean everything – comes right off an analog compact cassette tape. From lo-fi bedroom tapes, punk and garage rock, to dub and experimental noise, all we care about is the medium, which is the massage, dig? Featuring Sun Ra, Bad Brains, Sex Pistols, Julianna Hatfield, KK Null, Mephiskapheles, Machines of Loving Grace, Tsunami and more.

Not American Top 40 #048 – Complicated Compact Disc Compilations

DJ Scummy B celebrates the lowly CD compilation. From discounted label samplers and radio promos to genre-defining collections, beginning in the 90s CD compilations became a cheap way to get a pile of tracks to voracious listeners. Featuring: Army of Lovers, Birdsongs of the Mesozoic, Johnny Violent, Omar Santana, Love 666, Chrome, Soundgarden, Excelsior, Guilt, Rise Against, Devin Townsend, OLD, Amorphis, Eyehategod, Diabolos Rising, Cianide, Loudblast, Believer.

Not American Top 40 #047 – Not the Beattles

The station’s new AI filter keeps DJs in line and on-format, preventing DJ Scummy B from playing anything actually Top 40, systematically replacing his attempts to play Beatles songs with AI generated facsimiles. The following managed to get through the filter: The Rutles, Beatallica, Melvins, Quorthon, Type O Negative, Soundgarden, Sonic Youth, Helloween, Lord Master, Love Tractor, MrDougDoug, Mukqs, Spinal Tap, Brujeria, Das DAmen, Public Service Broadcasting, Tõnu Naissoo.
