INAUGURAL RADIO: Tuesday's radio show was scheduled to begin at noon, just as Barack Obama was to be sworn in as president of the United States. So at the beginning of the program, I announced that we were going to cut away to the ceremony. Then I started playing a recording of one of George W. Bush's inaugurations, made horrified noises, and segued into the Kinks' "Do It Again."

The effect was somewhat blunted by the fact that the prerecorded show before mine ran a few minutes long, so it wasn't actually noon when I did this. Dammit.

Here's the full playlist:
