I’d normally do a #throwbackthursday but tonight is very busy for me, maybe next week. Until next time!

The Clean Up Hour, Mix 246 (December 29, 2023)

Disclaimer: tonight’s show does contain explicit language, potentially offensive material, and may contain political views which are not reflective of CKMS 102.7, nor its board of directors. Listener discretion is advised.

What’s up, y’all? It’s ya boy mophead, here with the last Clean Up Hour of the year. Tonight is the show’s annual Worst of the Year list — 12 albums get put under the scope. Check it:

After rambling for a bit over an hour, I played a small mix of music:


Mr. Muthaf**kin Exquire (HUGHIE!) – Dot vs. Dilla
Michael Christmas – 24’s Freestyle
G’s Us & Blu – Freaks
Serengeti – Untitled 3
Lupe Fiasco – 3,048
Pillz – City of Gold
Charles Hamilton – Child Safety

Then, in the final 16 minutes of the show, I did the 20th Mini All Things Considered on the late Curtis Plum, whose only album, Call My Cellphone, was on repeat this year.

Tracklist for that part:

Bike Cop
More Than One Hat
Xbox Trife Life

So, for #throwbackthursday, let’s go back in time to all of the Worst of the Year lists I’ve done since the show started:

See y’all in the new year!


The Clean Up Hour, Mix 245

What’s up, y’all? It’s ya boy mophead, here with tonight’s Clean Up Hour (to those of you who use RSS, I will upload the show here a bit later — I put the file away on my external hard drive before I remembered to upload it here). Check it:

Tonight’s mix is the 53rd All Things Considered, making the case for Keor Meteor, the french beatmaker whose music deserves a lot more attention. There are 189 songs in this mix, so I’m not writing out the tracklist here — it’s been a long enough day already.

For #throwbackthursday, I’m going to repost three of my previous holiday/Christmas mixes, as I don’t think I will be doing anything like that this year.

See y’all next week for the year’s worst of list!

The Clean Up Hour, Mix 244

What’s up, y’all? Tonight’s mix is the show’s final ode (of the year) to 2003 — like a completely different world at this point (for the most part). Here’s the mix if you can’t wait until midnight or want to check out Part 2 of the mix:
