Out of Order (R.I.P.)

So, in case y'all haven't figured out by now, this blog is more or less defunct now that the radio show has switched hands.
To get your RH fix, check out the new blog over at to see Aimee's handiwork!

We're on break for summer now, but live acts will return in September. Check that site for more info as it develops.

Loose Ends

Long time, no post.

Since last time, the reign of Dischord and Dynne has come to a close — live acts will continue next semester at the same time (Fridays @ 10pm EST), but a different DJ will be at the helm. Be sure to still tune in!

Now, for some closure:

First up, here are the Peace Creeps and The High Seas performances from a few weeks back. Also, the Dry Hump recording has been available for a little while, though I've never explicitly posted about it.

I've uploaded a lot of old performances to Mediafire and linked to them from the side bar, so be sure to snag any performances that you may have missed. I'm still trying to round up a few of the missing ones, and I'll be sure to post them when/if I find them.

Next up, over at WHRB we're in the full swing of Orgy season, where we devote large chunks of air (anywhere between 5 - 40+ hours) to a single artist, genre, record label, or idea. Some great ones have already taken place, including Slumberland, Jonathan Richman, and the Old Time Radio Plays. A full listing of Orgies for this season can be found in our Program Guide at

Tonight is the second to last night of the 25 Years of Record Hospital Orgy, where we're recapping each of RH's 25 years of existence through relevant music, guest sets and stories from alumni, and whatever else we see fit. Starting tonight at ~9:15pm (i.e. now) we'll be plowing through the end of the 90s and into the early 2000s. It all wraps up tomorrow night, so be sure to tune in from 11pm til we wrap up at 5am.

Lastly, just want to put in a little plug for my own orgy coming up this weekend. On the nights of Friday and Saturday, Dec. 10th & 11th, WHRB will be highlighting the work of one of my favorite labels (even disregarding the fact that they're from Ohio, which is fantastic) Columbus Discount Records. Thanks to the generous guys at CDR, we'll be playing through their entire catalog (including those rare Singles Club releases) and doing some dramatic readings of interviews throughout the course of the night. Be sure to tune in!

In record time, the Reports set from earlier tonight is now available for download.

Tune in for Dry Hump next week!

'Sup, Harvard

I know I already mentioned the Iron Lung show coming up, but I completely forgot to mention another great show going on in Harvard Square the weekend after.

First up, here's a poster for the former:

aaaand, here is a flyer (courtesy of Catherine for both!

Reports tonight!

Something old, something new

Some bad news: Hospital Rats is on hiatus as of this past week. Because of this, they've had to cancel for D&D on the 30th. A replacement should be found soon, though -- be sure to check for updates.

On a lighter note, I'm happy to announce that The High Seas will be joining us in studio on November 20th, just before the week of Thanksgiving. No snarky comments relating to this, just pure facts.

Recordings are up!

Downloads of the Foreign Objects and Alessa sets are now available in the sidebar, as well as two older shows -- Daniel Striped Tiger & Sinaloa and L'Antietam, by request.

Which brings me to my next point--
If you'd like a copy of any of the shows listed but not linked on the side, or if one of the links has expired (as happens as we move to free servers) then please just send an email to rhshows @ gmail . com with what shows you'd like to come your way. We had to move the back issues off the recordhospital site due to space constraints.


Change in Schedule

First off, I'd like to apologize for the delay in posting the Foreign Objects and Alessa sets. Thesis has recently consumed my life, but they will be up tomorrow night at about 10pm EST. I'll be back to posting performances less than a week after they occur from now on.

Second matter of business--
Hospital Rats will no longer be playing on October 30th due to some changes in lineup. Here's hoping they fill can fill in the holes and get back to performing soon.

Just wanted to announce an awesome show happening right in Harvard Square. On Friday, November 6th, at 6pm Iron Lung, Mind Eraser, SQRM, and Dry Hump will be performing in Holden Chapel, same place as night two of RH Fest last year. $8 suggested donation for touring bands; no booze or substances. Flyer to come soon.
There will be no band on the air on this night due to a sharing of equipment & staff. Come say hey!
