Oh holy isht! It wasn't long ago that I typed the "greatest post in the history of blogging" and expressed my desire that I never fall three Feedback Farm episodes behind on the WXYC blog again. Well, due to some factors within my control and a few beyond it, this time around I've outdone myself and fallen no less than six episodes behind.

Unfortunately, one of the factors beyond my control was the utter implosion of my hard drive. This hardware failure prevents me from presenting to you the April 22nd and May 6th episodes of the Farm, in which Shakespeare and Pirates were respectively (if not respectfully) featured. Those episodes are gone forever. Unless that listener from Paraguay happens to have them on his hard drive. Mr Paraguayan, if you're out there, email us at wxycfeedbackfarm at gmail dot com.

Anyway, I DO have four episodes for you this morning.

1. From May 20th (57MB MP3). In which the Feedback Farmers define "condiment" and rank the world's top 10. Now I see why the Farmers asked me to post that hot dog & mustard tshirt photo.

Do you know the 6 characteristics of a condiment? Do you know the difference between a main dish, a condiment, a flavorful lubricant, and a topping? What's the number 1 condiment of all time? Do you care? Then give it a listen.

2. From June 3rd (57 MB MP3). When condiments are around, meat can't be far away. Take a bite. Hot dogs not discussed this evening because they were discussed at another time. Tasty.

3. From June 17th (63MB MP3). In which the automobile is taken apart piece by piece and completely rebuilt. Poorly attended by the Farmers themselves, and those who bothered to show up don't even regularly drive. Perhaps that tells you what to expect from this car wreck of a show.

4. Lastly, from July 1st (54MB MP3). Following the sudden, tragic death of pop superstar and cultural icon Michael Jackson, the Feedback Farmers paid him their last disrespects. The show progressed much like Jackson's career: strong in the first half and then it fizzled out.
