The Red Chuck Précis

(Weekly lyrics from Zach Bryan/Come As You Are)


Hey world!

A quick programming note: there will be no Red Chuck Précis next week, as I'll be busy celebrating the holiday and prepping for various local community events, including Small Business Saturday.

If you're local, make sure you head down to the NODE in Niles on Small Business Saturday (November 27th), where I will be spinning holiday tunes and running around town helping create an awesome environment of fun holiday spirits in my favorite city.

I'll be back after the holiday break and, oh boy, we're going to be diving into the end of year lists! Oh, 2021, we hardly knew ye.

Also, you should definitely check out the Nelson Family Radio Hour on Monday, Nov. 22nd at 7:15pm EST. You may even see someone you know.

Until then, have a safe and happy holiday (if you celebrate it) and have a safe and happy week or so regardless.



Made You A Mix

Weekly Virtual Mix Tape: November 19th, 2021

The Red Chuck Weekly Virtual Mix Tape playlists are a collection of ten songs I've been listening to this week, crossing genre, era, and taste. No themes, just the tunes I've been sticking in my ears lately.

Available on Spotify & Apple Music.

After discovering your new favorites, be sure to support those bands on Bandcamp or their websites by purchasing that music.


Made You A List

A collection of links & reads I've been sticking in my brain the past week.

No Labels- Republicans Face Right-Wing Ire Over Infrastructure Support

I'm equal parts "ya'll did this to yourself by courting extremism" and "this is insane and I continue to worry about my country".

Herald Palladium- Congressional maps would split Berrien County

This process continues to fascinate me.

Paste- Bell's Brewery Acquired by Kirin-Owned Lion Little World Beverages

As a Michigander, it's difficult to not be a little sad about this.

NPR- Wyoming GOP votes to stop recognizing Cheney as a Republican

See my above comments. I'm not a huge fan of Cheney's political philosophies, but I'm glad she's trying to be a voice of reason in her party.

Saeed Jones- The Friends You Make Online

This, though replace "over a decade" with "multiple decades". I love my Livejournal peeps.

WTF Podcast- "Canceled Comedy" w/ Kliph Nesteroff and David Bianculli

A damn good listen.

NPR News- Tribes hope infrastructure law means they'll finally get clean drinking water

Stateside- Deported by the Country You Served

Fresh Air- '1619 Project' journalist says Black people shouldn't be an asterisk in U.S. history
