Marnie’s Back on the Radio!
Marnie's Back on the Radio!

(And in Marnie's fantasy world, it looks an awful lot like WKRP In Cincinatti.)   Hello my fellow popsters! I'm back on terrestrial radio and I gotta say, it feels really great to be back spinning records and talking through a fancy microphone! If you're in the Davis/Sacramento area, you can tune your dial to […]

It's never failed that the first song on this week's Popcast has always tugged on my heartstrings. I thought of it the other day as I searched my mental rolodex for "a perfect London song." As soon as the melody drifted in, I perked up and realized that the last time I listened to it I […]

Ladies and gents,  It's high, high time I've brought you a Popcast. My musical absence has been absolutely inexcusable! Though I must be honest, it isn't easy cavorting around ol' London town, drinking Pimms in private double-decker partybuses, meeting the queen, hanging out with Colin Firth and Tom Hardy all day long. So I've put myself to […]

  'Allo kids! Marnie here, from lovely Londontown. I've now been here for 18 days and its truly been awesome. Or shall I say, "it's been 'eaps of good fun pip pip, 'allo guvnah!" No, I shouldn't say that cuz no one actually talks like that here. They do though, refer to regular drip coffee as […]

Spent today at Hampstead Heath, loved it. There was rain, snow and wind. At some points the sun peeked out from behind; those few moments were glorious. There was only one song stuck in my head this whole time…

Popcast #590: Guest post by Craig Robinson!

  (Artwork by Craig Robinson)      Dear friends,  Once upon a time, somewhere around the turn of the century, when the internet was still pretty new and my email address ended in @aol.com, I would sometimes find myself writing a college term paper in the wee hours of the night. Even back then I […]

  (Catherine Deneuve in Le Parapluies de Cherbourg) Dear friends,  Its been stormy around these parts. It may "never rain in southern california…" but it shoure does rain up north. Local news stations are fearmongering it up; FLOODING! DOWNED POWER LINES! STORES ARE OUT OF BATTERIES! NO MORE TWINKIES! And the roads make for some pretty […]

Dear friends,  So much has happened since the last popcast; I got a root canal, I think there's a possum living in my bathroom wall, I bought tickets to visit Chicago and NYC, I dj'ed my first wedding and I played host for a pop singer from New Zealand, his lovely girlfriend and supercool friend […]

Popcast #587

Dear friends,  Last week I found a Chinese bus ticket inside a paper toilet seat cover dispenser in the bathrooms at work. What? You know, those tissue-paper seat covers that you pull out of a wall-mounted dispenser? Well, when I pulled one out, a three-inch long green paper ticket (with Chinese characters, the number 2.00 […]
