It's Edgar Allen Poe's 204th birthday and his PR said he's a little under the weather, so there will be no Poe on da show. The interview segment is canceled.

If you can't tell, I really enjoy Edgar Allen Poe's work but I'm too sarcastic to write, write, write like he, and the way he wrote, wrote, wrote to thee. I do love his stories and one of my favorites is "The Tell-Tale Heart." I first heard it when I was in grade school. His tales of mystery and the macabre wasn't the only thing that makes his work interesting. His stories and poems are short and are so much easier to read than War and Peace or Crime and Punishment.
Here is Iggy Pop reading "The Tell-Tale Heart." I'm not allowed to play this on the air because of all the complaints we received last time. About 4 minutes into the recording there is a high-pitched whistle that only birds can hear and they go crazy! So be forewarned not to play this near your avian friend or old people with a crazy eye. (Old person is a reference to the tale.)
Iggy Pop - “The Tell-Tale Heart”
What did you think of that tale told by Iggy? Pop-tastic wasn't it. Or should I say a "real eye-opener!"
If you're a Poe fan and hate reading then you can find more like the above on the album: Closed on Account of Rabies: Poems and Tales of Edgar Allan Poe.
It's out of print but you can still find new copies for around $200. Used it will set you back $20-30. Do you think I'm kidding about the 2 Benjamin price-tag? Here's proof! www.amazon.com
Don't you feel silly? You thought I was making it up didn't you! Hey, if it's on Amazon, then it has to be real!

Here's another Poe story read by a famous actor. Cue the cowbell because this blog always needs more cowbell. If I knew how to write this in the same tone and style of Christopher Walken I would have done that instead of the cheesy cowbell thing.
No excuses for this weird blog posting.
As always, I appreciate you listening to 93.3 KDKB.
