You know your blog’s in trouble when you start writing about your dreams.
But what the hell.
I’ve had a recurring nightmare where I’m a DJ at a radio station. The song on the turntable is ending, but the next record is not cued up and I’m running around the studio trying to find a record to play next.
I had the dream again the other night, and things were complicated by turntables that played the records upside down, so you not only had to find a song to play, but then struggle to get it ready.
It’s a quaintly old-fashionedÂ dream, what with vinyl and turntables. Those things are gone from radio stations, as are DJs who get to pick out their own music.
Maybe there was a time when railroad men would dream ofÂ running out of coal or people would have nightmares about receiving bad news in a telegram. Technology may change, but anxiety is forever.
