No Translation Necessary, Vin's Your Tour Guide

Bill Murray and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu (Kiriko Takemura) play to the gallery.

Yes, Bill Murray sings his heart out on tonight's Tokyo Triple. The world's most populous city is a place where people and music mingle in an intoxicating rush, spilling out onto streets at 3AM, wandering alleys right out of Blade Runner, or more accurately, Lost in Translation. They are "like falling leaves in the night," as the song goes, yet individuals connect, despite the city's incomprehensible vastness. Tokyo is a medley of songs sung along an endless trail of unnamed streets illuminated by blinding neon. Where do we pause to listen?

Don't fear. Vin CYCLONE is your personal tour guide. Meet him in the lobby at midnight.

Feel free to send requests.

The Tokyo Triple is a feature of Vin CYCLONE's night time cavalcade of subliminal messages, The POWER HOUR, heard exclusively on KLW the KILLERWATT. To hear the full program this episode of the Tokyo Triple was taken from, click here.

Everything in the World Is About Sex...Except Sex. Sex? It's About the POWER HOUR.

The remains of KLW's studio in Manhattan one day after the Great Blackout and riots of 1977.
This week the KILLERWATT's night time disc jockey Vin CYCLONE plays it for reals, presenting all sorts of surprises and of course ear candy galore.

Aircheck tapes of KLW have surfaced made by a listener from Battle Creek Michigan on July 13, 1977, "The Blackout of 1977." The hobbyist's recording documents the KILLERWATT cobbling together a studio at the generator powered transmitter site on Signal Hill, Brooklyn. The station's Manhattan studio was looted then set afire. Hear the first installment of "The BLACKOUT TAPES" featuring CYCLONE and "Voice of the KILLERWATT" Bobby ROBERTO tonight, on the POWER HOUR.

Plus an all new Tokyo Triple featuring the best of the new and old out of Nippon, including some requests from Japanese fans of night-time radio DXing.

POWER HOUR... a cavalcade of subliminal messages to tweak your forlorn ears!

Feel free to send requests.

Woman Oh Woman, You Can't Bury Scottso Alive

Woman III, by Willem de Kooning, 'cause the KILLERWATT's cultured.

This week, Retro SCOTTSO highlights music inspired by goddesses. The rocker's Muse, responsible for brilliant bar chords, many a vocal quaver, howls at the moon, blistering solos and lyrical regrets. Scottso plays woman, but not in a bad way. Enjoy the likes of Wolfmother, Anti-Nowhere League, Black Sabbath, The Cult, Gary Pucket and The Union Gap; and of course John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
