Static on the Wadio - Episode 14

2017 was a long and stressful year, mostly because my country, my home, was overtaken by an incredibly incompetent and disingenuous human being (I can't even say his name), along with a political party that enables every indecent act. The result of the last Presidential election has brought us into a nightmare of incomparable proportions. All of our political fears have been dumped upon our heads and so many of us are cowering in fear. It's been a shock and the destruction of our bright future has caused our hearts to flutter in unhealthy ways. There's no mistaking the despair so many Americans feel but our resolve is powerful. We will get through this mockery of our democracy, one way or the other.

A way that I find productive is to grind against the anxiety with the power of music. So I have compiled a mix that embodies all of the feelings that I've gone through over the past year. From the moment of anguish that came that fateful November day to my desire for a better tomorrow. Take a trip with me.
