Zero to 180 Milestones:  Years 0-9

  • 1st anniversary piece that featured an exclusive “Howard Dean” remix of a delightful Sesame Street song about anger management (with a special rant about how WordPress’s peculiarities made me homicidal the moment I launched this blog).

  • 2nd anniversary piece that refused to acknowledge the milestone but instead celebrated the under-sung legacy of songwriter/session musician, Joe South – with a link to South’s first 45, a novelty tune that playfully laments Texas’s change in status as the nation’s largest state upon Alaska’s entry into the Union.

  • 3rd anniversary piece that revealed the depths to which Zero to 180 will sink in order to foist his own amateur recordings onto an unsuspecting and trusting populace.

  • 4th anniversary piece that formalized – as a public service – musical chord changes for an old (and tuneless) “hot potato” playground game called The Wonderball.

  • 6th anniversary piece that dared to introduce contemporary music product — i.e., dub-inspired pop fusion — in direct violation of Zero to 180’s must-be-20-years-or-older policy.

  • 8th anniversary piece that celebrated the musical legacy of Washington’s one-time “favorite folk singer” and beloved drama chair at DC’s Duke Ellington School of the Arts, Donal Leace.
