As hinted at in the subject line, WFMU, the home of my global radio assault known as the Goddamn Dave Hill Show, has kicked off its annual fundraising marathon. The station, as you probably know, is an independent, free-form, not-for-profit radio station that relies entirely on listener donations to stay on the air and in your hearts. There are no government grants, corporate interests, or mysterious mustachioed svengalis with complicated hair keeping the whole thing afloat as part of some nefarious plan, which is why I now ask you, dear reader (and hopefully also a listener) to do what you can to support WFMU, the greatest station in the land, and the Goddamn Dave Hill Show, the show I do for free every week whether I am emotionally qualified or not. You can help you by donating here. There are all sorts of incredible gifts and prizes you can get depending on how much you are up for giving, including my gravity-defying DJ premium for this year, a set of three 3-inch embroidered patches designed by one of my all-time favorite artists, Danny Hellman, and inspired the show, including a patch for my prison gang the Ramen Gang and a patch for GDDHS show MVP caller and legend YngDave. These patches are pictured above and will look great on anything and everything and will probably get you laid or at least invited to brunch somewhere. So enough reading, more donating! Thank you for being a force of good in this world. I find you every attractive.
I'm excited to tell you that the self-titled debut album by my new band Painted Doll (me and my buddy Chris Reifert from Autopsy, Death, Violation Wound, etc.) is out now on Tee Pee Records. Rolling Stone says "This brief, beautifully recorded set drips with a sensuous, and vaguely sinister, aura." And the legendary Fenriz from Darkthrone calls the album his "favorite of 2018 so far" on the latest episode of his excellent Radio Fenriz show. Not too shabby. You can get vinyl and CD copies here or at your favorite record store. Get the digital version on iTunes or here. If you want a T-shirt, we've got those too, right here. And excellent animation above by Mr. McCheese!
With his signature matter-of-fact humor, comedian and musician Dave Hill explores his increasingly close relationship with his recently widowed father in a series of painfully funny essays you will want to read again and again by the fire, at the beach, in a truck stop menís room, or just about anywhere. Itís your call, really....
